So I was playing around with my phone connections and accidentally turned on 4G...and the icon with signal bars appeared! I wasn't expecting it, so checked in the settings and it has Network Provider: Sprint, Signal Strength: Good, and obtains and IP address.
Speedtest is is giving a variety of speeds, anywhere from 1.98-6.85Mbps down/ .95Mbps up, with 300 ping. One odd thing though, is that when going into the speedtest app, it says that I'm in NJ, listing the servers from there 4-45 miles away..instead of a few hundred.
Wow! I tested, on several occasions, only a couple kilobits away from 9 megabits and on only one bar in my house!
PS. I'm south of the city, in Baldwin/Whitehall on one of the hills above streets run road.
Anyone tested the 4G throughput since the latest EVO update? I'm getting 3 full bars of 4G in Oakland, but the throughput has gone WAY down, so far that I'm getting worse than 3G speeds. I rooted my phone with Unrevoked 3.21, but as far as I know this shouldn't have any effect, being that I still have the stock 4G radio file.
