    Here in North Jersey I'm averaging 5mbs down, close to 6mbs up, 117 ping. May not be Verizon fast but faster than the DSL I have at work and fast enough for me.

    Hope everyone enjoyed there Christmas but check the gift metro gave me. I'm at families house & just convinced almost everybody it's not GhettroPOS anymore, some of my cousins i like to call the sprint clique said they might even switch from sprint, that was the whole reason I did a speedtest was to show them I dont get 3megs down anymore

    Ok, I guess this is as good a place for me to whine as anywhere. ;)

    I mentioned in another thread coming back from getting activated last Sunday and I think Id-ing the Metro tower near here. As soon as I got to the tower the bars pegged but by the time I got the 3/4 of a mile to my place they were hovering between 1-2. Well, that's where they've stayed and my data speed is somewhat erratic varying between 2-4.5 Mps. No where near the righteous figures some are showing but quite a bit better than my Verizon 3G.

    So tonight I happen to be at the Burger King on the exit North of the tower.
    So now I'm about 1/3 the distance to the tower as my place. Bingo Bango. Up goes the bars to 3-4 and the first 3 speed tests were all right at the Best I've seen at my place.

    It seems like Dallas is getting pretty good speed. I guess mainly because the corporate office is located here. But I know there are some places where I can only get 2 down and most places around 11 down .

    Many factors affect speed, amount of spectrum(Bandwidth), where a tower is located, type of tower, tower equipment & amount of people on that tower.

    All I can say is Dallas & i believe Las Vegas have the most spectrum of all markets so they should have the best speeds & so far through speed test they have shown to have the highest speeds. But if anything is wrong with 1 of those factors above, speeds will dramatically decrease.

    I have tested in south PB County Fl, and Volusia County Fl.

    Up in Volusia - usually most places I can get about 4.5mb/3.5mb

    Down in PB - was getting about .6mb/.4mb up to 2.5mb/2.5mb, depending on locale.

    did an upgrade on PRL and I'm doing 8.5mb/6.5mb from my office, which was one of the best spots for 4G that I found in these parts. Changing the PRL definitely helped.
