    Cool Post your 4G speeds

    Post your 4G speeds on your Sensation!!! This is the fastest I've ever gotten.



    I also want to clarify that I have the Preferred Android Web plan with 5GB of data and its not 4G however I am perfectly able to take advantage of high speeds. YOU DO NOT NEED A 4G WEB PLAN TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HIGH SPEEDS.

    I wonder why tmo keeps calling it 4g AFAIK it's just enhanced 3g verizon has true 4gLTE and Sprint's WiMax is kinda weird in the middle of 3g/4g ......FWIW if you look at your sensation signal status, it will go from 4g to 2g...NEVER 3g....just a thought....



    oh and I'm using an Even More Plus plan with unlimited data (read: throttled at some point don't remember when though) and txt and 750 minutes....


    one last thing, how did you post your Sensation speed test on here? thanks!

    The fastest I have gotten was Download 8085 kbps and Upload 1651 kbps, Ping 75ms, Hsdpa, Boston Server, in Providence on 6/20/11.

    I can't do one now because I'm throttled until the 27th. Actually, let me run one for the hell of it... wow.. I got Download 6133 kbps and Upload 1581 kbps , ping 102ms. Not bad. I thought I was throttled since I received the text from T-mobile.

    How did you get the link to post your test results here? I can only e-mail mine to myself. But I can't find an embed link in the Speedtest app.

    I did it via tethering. I plugged my phone in and then ran a speedtest via my computer browser and then it gave me the option to share it. Its the same thing since the connection is coming from your phone. I then got the same results running the speedtest on my phone. Numbers were exact but pretty damn close. E.g 9.60mbps PC, 9.43mbps phone

    Which means absolutely nothing. The lack of a 3G signal indicator is a non-starter argument. HSPA+, especially in its higher ranges (which T-mobile is currently deploying) is JUST as fast as Verizon's LTE implementation. I've seen speeds on T-mobile's HSPA+ that were BETTER than anything I saw on LTE.

    Oh, and FYI: Verizon's LTE doesn't qualify as 4G either. LTE-Advanced does, but that isn't finalized yet.

    Really? I'm pushing 40 mbps DL on my Charge and 7ish up. I haven't seen near that on either sensation i've tried.
    Trying to decide if i wanna make the switch. Sensation is an amazing device. Absolutely love it. But not sure I can give up verizon LTE

    Live in a suburb of Boston getting on average between 6.5 - 12MB download and pretty consistent 1.6 up. My download speeds are a very strong 7 - 8.5 MB during the day and after 5:30 pm my download speeds climb. How can you not be happy with those numbers??? Just as good and sometimes better then Verizon's LTE network. Damn I will miss what I think is the best Carrier in the country. Damn you AT&T. Just when T-Mobile gets their HSPA+ Network where it should be they decide to pack it in.

    You kinda repeated what I said, lte is 4g, and right it is still infantile. But I wasn't trying to argue a point about anything, I was just lol'ing about it being '4g' but when its in hsdpa it still shows up as 4g no 3g signal symbol on the notification screen

    I agree. the sensation looks wonderful.. but I get on average around 20mbs down and 4mbs up on vzw's 4g LTE with my Tbolt. I just dont think I could give up the speed.

    I tested around 8Mb/s last week on my Evo 4G/Sprint, but that is not an area where I live. Today I got the Evo 3D (yay!!!) Have no 4G where I live.... yet.... still.... (no carrier does).

    Except LTE isn't 4G. LTE Advanced is. They're two different things.HSPA+ and LTE are comparable right now, and not too much different.

    You don't notice a difference on the handset. You would with tethering, but not on the actual phone.

    Did you edit the wikipedia page so you can make yourself feel better? Just kiddn! Open-mindly I have to say though Verizon does have the fastest and closest to real 4G. If you look at the maps VZW has the best 4G coverage and the fastest speed.

    These are pretty slow speeds. Almost nearly every time i get 18.485-19.5 down and anywhere's from 9-12 up. With a 75 ping. In Parkland, FL. Its near coral springs.

    Completely not. I get 18 down and 12 up...75 ping. You guys get below 10 it seems mostly so yah big difference when your streaming movies, etc.

    I wasn't talking about speeds on the sensation, I was talking hspa+ speeds in general. At the upper end it and lte are almost identical.

    I've seen 18 down on a galaxy s 4g. I've also gotten the ceiling of the sensation of 14 down. Also, my pings haven't gone higher than 60. (Usually right around 52)

    I have to ask... what exactly are you people downloading on your phones that require anything over 21mbps??? YouTube videos stream fine over 1mbps. I mean if your downloading huge files then I can understand but this is actually why carriers are eliminating unlimited data plans. Honestly, 5mbps is plenty for me. I can't see paying $110/mo for an individual line with Verizon.

    LTE can get too 300mbs, theoretically. HSPA+ can do about 100mb. Not the same peak.
