4G coverage in your area
I should be getting my evo in the mail this week. Can't wait. I'm hoping to have some 4g coverage in my area in NJ and Philly (in aug).
I thought it might be a good idea to have everyone post their locations and how good, bad, amazing their 4g coverage is. I'll update this first post as people repsond to make it easy for people to use as reference.
Houston, TX - See Post #2 - So-So, But Useable
Pasadena, Tx - Very Good
San Antonio, TX - #3 - Disappointing
Austin, TX: good
San Marcos, TX: surprisingly good
Washington DC - Here - Disappointing
Atlanta, GA - Here - Good
Chicago, IL - Here - Very Good
Morris, IL - No 4G
Falls Church, VA - Here - Good
Las Vegas, NV - Here - Disappointing
Syracuse, NY - Here - Good
Orange Park, FL - Here - Good
Ft. Lauderdal, FL - Here - None
Rochester, NY - Here - Decent
Orlando, FL - Here - None
Santa Clara, CA - Here - Good
Sunnyvale, CA - Here - Good
Baltimore, MD (first 4G city ever): Very dissapointing
Nashville, TN - Here - Good
Kansas City, KC -#9 - Great

4G in Houston
4G in Houston
Signal comes and goes. Just while typing this post it has lost 4G and got it back. I have 3-4 bars out of 5.
Was able to do a speedtest at mobilespeedtest.com downloaded 1 MB in 6.29 seconds while on 4G. (1272 kbps). Crazy fast!

I'm in San Antonio and it's pretty disappointing, and Clear has been here for about a year. I get no signal at home or at work, both in heavily populated areas. Driving around with 4G on the when I get full bars the best I can get is 2Mbps down /1Mbps up.
It's not why I bought the phone, so I'm not too upset, it's just not worth leaving the 4G radio on right now.

I'd categorize it as very disappointing to absolute non-existent signal. Given that Houston is a major city in the country with huge market stakes of all business types...I'd expect Houston to be very good. However, the flip side of that coin I guess could be more congestion on the 4G network due to population. If the latter is the case and the 4G network isn't improved/strengthened with more folks jumping on, I'm afraid things won't look so good for the time being.
I was in the Pasadena area and while visiting a cousin, I noticed the 4G signal was very strong. I was able to average around 3.5mbs down and 2mbs up.
I live in Houston and my home doesn't receive any 4G. Working in Downtown Houston and inside the building, once again, the 4G signal was non-existent.

I'm in NW Houston and it's just okay. Mine doesn't come and go, but it fluctuates between 1 and 2 bars (over the 4g icon), but Houston is a huge city. It would take me an hour to get to Pasadena so I imagine not all areas of Houston are created equally.
I just tested it and I got 1.63 down and 1.02 up.
