    I've been searching for info on data speeds for the various carriers in Portland. I did find an official speed test and a user review, both done back in March. I know the carriers have been working on upgrading their networks and am curious if anything has changed in my area since that test?

    Basically I am planning on ditching my sirius service and using a phone to stream Pandora in my truck and the data from back in March suggests that the Verizon network here can't do it unless you are in a very few select areas with 4G. But i'm trying to get info from other Verizon customers in my area.

    I don't live in Portland but I do live in Oregon and I visit Portland regularly. I stream Pandora and Rhapsody thru my car stereo and it does just fine not on 4g. Even in the rural town I live in.

    No problems streaming pandora on high rate anywhere in pdx. Downtown gresham and underground parking garages do pose an issue.

    No problems nearly anywhere in vancouver or battle ground either. I even streamed out at ocean shores north of long beach on the coast.

    I stream Pandora and sports talk radio thru my phone to my car all the way from Hillsboro to Salem all the time on 3G with no problems. Just ran a Speed Test down here in Salem, 1815 kbps down and 528 kbps up, 948 down and 766 up, and 1000 down and 677 up.
