    Default Welcome to 4G NYC

    New York 8/18/10. For the first time I noticed that my EVO showed 4G. It was at 9:25 PM. I came to NYC via GWB, and proceeded North on Broadway, when I saw 4G on my EVO. Stopped the car and tested the speed. It registered 2.83 Mbps upload. I didn’t test download speed. Approx. 20 blocks further North, at my friend’s apartment, EVO switched to 3G.

    Ya NYC should be getting more and more coverage. I get 4G in Jersey City all the time. I'm assuming the coverage is from either Lower Manhattan or Brooklyn towers. Though I was in Harlem, 167th n Amsterdam I believe, and didn't get any coverage. I guess they're starting to turn the switch up there now. Awesome!

    Did they officially announce it? I've had 4G on and off in L.A. for 2 months but it's not consistent and hasn't been announced yet. They may just be testing it out.

    if you live in queens, I swear go to the LIRR station in Jamaica and you'll see unimaginable speeds...i got close to 8MBPS down and 1.1 upload. Also 4G works by Laguardia Community College in LIC but not very strong. In times square, i was able to get 3 mbps down and close to 1 upload. It's definately coming to NYC big time. The LIRR has been tested 3 times on 3 different days, I thought it was a fluke.

    brooklyn: coney island, church ave, red hook,
    manhattan: midtown
    queens: jamaica,flushing,corona

    as we are speaking i am in midtown recieving full 4g service all bars but it goes up and down and on and off

    i must say 4g at 1 bar goes up to 4mbps and 1 up speed
    pretty damn fast and great for tethering
