    Thanks for posting these. Off topic but I wonder why Texas is so dense with LTE. Even Sprint is starting the majority of its LTE there. Looser regulation, denser populations, maybe more crazies willing to climb towers.. Dont mess with Texas LTE edition
    Keep in mind Texas is AT&T's home state. On that note this was taken in The Woodlands, Texas. Not the best I've gotten but still pretty impressive!

    The only problem is your test was done with the new iPad, and not a Galaxy S3, similar but not the same.

    Seeing some impressive speeds here. To bad Chicago got the short end of the straw. Hopefully that'll change in time and they'll add more spectrum here.

    He was not refering to the size or footprint of VZW's LTE network but the "fallback" when the LTE signal is lost. Just because your area has LTE that doesn't mean you'll get it all the time. Sometimes the signal will fallback to a lower speed. AT&Ts fallback is more layered than Verizon's with HSPA+ -> HSPA -> EDGE. With Verizon its either LTE or EVDO. AT&T's fallback is faster than VZW.
    You completely missed the point. The point was that Verizon is soon not gonna need layers since almost the entire footprint will be LTE. That's their goal by the end of 2013. If they keep their current pace, they're about to exceed it.

    I agree 100% ! Sprint in Philly on 3G was terrible: like 87 Kbps (even in the sprint store down town). Interestingly, their 4g had gotten much better very recently so I don't know if they were reallocating bandwidth. However, WiMAX on Evo kills the battery so quickly, it's not feasible to use it.

    Switching to AT&T was the best decision ever!

    If always getting between 2 and 5 MEG'S download speed !!!!!

    Cal quality on s3 and AT&T is awesome!

    This is what I get here in Jacksonville FL on AT&T. Keep in mind that LTE isn't Officially launched here yet.

    I'm lucky to live/work in the Boston, MA area, so shortly after I got my new GS3, I was in Methuen, and got nearly 58Mbps down and 14Mbps up...consistantly in the 50's...then as I was driving North, away from the LTE coverage area, into Salem NH, it got slower, until I lost LTE and dropped down to HSPA+ which wasn't so bad at all at 7.2Mbps down and 1Mbps up.

    The next day, I got to test it around Boston and Cambridge where I get high 20's, low 30's down and around 10Mbps up. I'm a happy camper!

    See attached screenshot (BTW, I love the palm-swipe screenshot feature of the GS3)

    Cheers!
    I'm amazed at the speed you are getting in the Boston / Cambridge area. My office is in Chelsea, but I spend more time in Cambridge.

    I have had my phone about 3 weeks and I find the LTE service very hit or miss. I've never seen speeds beyond 3-6 Mb/s down / 1 Mb/s up. I either have service or I have nothing. At my office in Chelsea, service is awful. One to two bars at most. The LTE fades in and out continually. I haven't been that impressed with AT&T's service.

    Where in Boston do you spend most time? I'm usually driving around in Cambridge.

    Eh alright speeds. But much better coverage area that I had on Verizon 4G LTE in my area it was spotty. With at&t I have it like ALL around south Florida

    I live an hour and a half north of Atlanta GA. I get hspa+15. I get 5-7 mb down at my house, but when I move into town I usually get 2-5. I get around 1mb up everywhere.

    I typically test over 30 megabits here in NYC/NJ. But seeing some of your speeds holy shiz!! Does anyone else find it completely off kilter that most of our 4G LTE smart phones have faster connection speeds than our home Cable connections?? I am paying for *boost* service... an extra $10 or so a month for up to 30 megabits and I usually get around 25 megabits.

    *OK, well I just tested now and I'm finally seeing 31.54 megabits down and 5.13 up on my home connection. Doing it again though on 4G LTE through the same Speedtest server gave me 26.67mbps down and 12.33mbps up - well the up beat the heck out of my home Optimum Cable service connection. Gotta wonder why I'm paying so much a month!


    Rev.
    Yep. I remember over the past few years where more and more people started looking at the price & performance of their cell phones, and started making the decision to drop home phone landlines alltogether. I'm beginning to wonder if we're starting to hit the next tipping point, where it may make sense to start looking at what you're paying for home internet (50mb boosted cable @ $99/mo for me!) and look at whether a data card on your cellular contract may be equal performance and cost less than continuing to have both services. Interesting times, for sure!
