Just thought you guys might like this:
Download Speed: 12300 kbps (1537.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 962 kbps (120.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
My latest 4G speed results from http://speakeasy.net/speedtest above are nice

You're probably right. I am however a little disappointed that they are taking their time getting 4G out. I knew it would be awhile to get it where I live, but I didn't expect a year. I thought they would had the major cities ready to go by the time the evo was released. As we all know that wasn't the case.

Dont feel bad I just (since the evo was released) got into all this stuff learning about the different phone networks and technologies. I read about this stuff all the time because i was wondering the same thing about sprint chosing wimax over lte and i read up on it and found out they really didnt have a choice at the time because it was the only technology that was ready at the time that clear was building their next gen network. i dont think that its the wimax technology but the frequency that it is deployed on. i also read that 2.5ghz paired with a lower frequency like the 800mhz that sprint can perform alot better than the 700mhz spectrum that verizon uses for its lte network.

Hmm... my upload speed has increased (from approximately about 0.95 to an average of 1.33 Mbps), but my download speed has drastically dropped!!!
I used to get download speeds of over 4 Mbps, but now it's a maximum of 2.2 Mbps, frequently dipping under the measured upload speed...
Oh well, I hope it's a temporary issue?

The biggest differences, like you pointed out, are how they are deployed. The physics between 2500mhz and 700 mhz is huge. Simply stated, higher frequency gives you higher capacity but shorter distances (and poor building penetration). Higher frequency gives good distance and good penetration, but does not have the capacity of higher frequencies.
I too knew nothing about the mobile industry before last year. I have become quite the dork doing a lot of research. This whole 4G thing is very intriguing to me. Now I subscribe to virtually every news board out there. My co-workers now regret accidentally saying anything in my presence about 4G, because I go into Super Dork mode.
