    Default New Speed Test

    Google, Sprint, Samsung, and Ookla (maker of speedtest.net app) all recommend going to Speakeasy - Speed Test for a reliable speed test on all Android devices released since December 2011.

    How about going to the site, and reporting your best of 3 speeds from this site?

    Average speeds Sprint says possible:
    3G: 600 Kbps - 3.1 Mbps
    4G: 3 Mbps - 10 Mbps

    Mileage may vary.

    My results.

    4G: 5.57 Mbps Down 0.99 Mbps Up

    3G: 1.40 Mbps Down 0.25 Mbps Up

    WiFi: 28.96 Mbps Down 9.88 Mbps Up

    3G: 0.63Mbps Down 0.24Mbps Up

    4G: 6.61Mbps Down 0.94Mbps Up

    This is a pretty big difference, this past Friday My 3G was around .8 and my 4G was around .6.

    On my Evo in the same location I am now, I was around 1.1 on 3G.

    Yeah it's that bad, and it is very consistent lately even the guys at work with EVO's are getting the same.

    This was at home 8 Miles away about the same signal 1-3 bars
    3G: 1.56 Mbps Down 0.49 Mbps Up
    Wifi: 9.80 Mbps Down 0.81 Mbps Up

    Maybe a network issue? What was your 4G speed? Anyone else try this test?

    it is a big difference compared to the app installed on the phone isn't it?

    I'll check 4G when I'm out. I can't get a decent signal in my house.

    3G: down 1.07, up .36

    4G: down 5.45, up .86

    My speeds aren't bad, the only issue is signal strength after I got my second ns4g. One issue I have noticed though is that 4g has issues communicating with Tapatalk

    Looks like tomorrow for 4G, we'll all have 1.5Mbps caps. ****, I love Sprint.

    Just pulled down 9Mbps+ on 4G while Speedtest.net app said 3.5 .. hmm ..
