    Default 4g vs 3g

    Well I don't officially have 4g in Indianapolis but there is a signal depending on where you are in Naptown. I was curious just how much of a difference there is between my 3g and 4g connection. Keep in mind that I am only able to get a couple bars when using the 4g and I was close to downtown. I'll let the picture speak for itself but the test @ 10:03 is using my 4g connection and the test @ 10:04 is using my trusty, not too mention much more dependable, 3g connection. Oh and by the way this screenshot was taken using the new feature w/ the update to my EVO 3d. God I love this phone. Feel free to post your own screenshots w/ a comparison in your town.

    that's about the minimum speed I get and double for average speed on the download. Upload is about the same for the most part, sometimes 2x that but that's on full bars.

    I'm in San Diego. Also not officially turned on here but I did a few speed tests while connected and got 7.2Mbps. Not bad!

    This is what I usually get with 3g but my 4g is a little lower then usual as you can see I have no bars of 4g but still getting over 6Mbs down. Usually around 7-8 Mbs though with one bar. 4g test is on the left and 3g is on the right obviously.
