    Not sure what tweaking you could do to your phone to make metro's towers put out double the speed its set up for lol.

    Pray tell good lad. :D

    I get consistent minimums 1300 kbps up and down. Sometimes I get as much as 5 mb down and 2-3 mb up, in fact I am slowly but surely seeing those kinds of speeds more and more often here in the Tampa market.

    Yea, that has urked me as well... Verizon 3G gets the same speeds as us MetroPCS 4G folk... Technically Verizon & Metro have similar systems. I am assuming that these slower speeds are due to throttling. To support having everything unlimited they throttle everyone equally to about 3mbps up and down for their 4G...

    Yea ive seen these really low in phone place they only have 3g but their 3g is faster then my 4g and if you even turn 4g on your batt will get killed the phone over heats and crash sometime melt the SD card or the phone wont turn on again till you let it cool down
