    I've been all over the place. I noticed out yesterday that I had 4 bars so I ran it and got my best number yet. The pathetic numbers on here are from the weekend when I was having some strange issue connecting to LTE.

    My speeds in the Minneapolis, MN area are terrible (<2 mbps down, <1.5 up), which is surprising because my Thunderbolt was darn nice (typically 15-25 down, at least 5 up). Anyone else in the Twins Cities have better results with their S3?

    Finally got a decent test result; 32MBps down / 10MBps up.
    That being said, I was driving on interstate, and could literally see the Verizon logo on the tower while testing. I'm guessing that's about as fast as I'm going to get!

    I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure this particular thread is discussing 4g speeds, not the galaxy s3. If I thought the discussion was specifically galaxy s3 related I'd shut up.

    Check the thread title, "anyone test their 4g speeds on the s3." Seems specific to the s3 to me.

    Also, this is the Verizon gs3 section of the forums.

    How about this, from my S3: 71mbps down, 26 up, ping of 50!

    Display your result in mbps instead of kbps. Your result is actually 68mbps.
    Still not bad.

    Quick question. What does your phone have to do with 4G speeds?

    Because if I was interested in your LG, I would have posted topic in an LG forum (or a more generic category)..... Sorry not trying to be ugly. Just answering the question.

    Well since my phone isn't available in the US or any English speaking country, under your principle I'm not allowed to post anywhere. Maybe I shouldn't be allowed to register.

    Don't tell me my phone will be soon available in the US. It won't. My phone has 2GB of ram, not one, like the rumored US version.

    At work I'm hitting 25Mbps download and 11.38Mbps upload but at home i'm only getting 1.80Mbps to 8.07Mbps download and 0.43Mbps to 2.35Mbps upload. Home doesn't get that good of a signal and I'm with Verizon.

    This thread is specifically to see what the S3's LTE radio is pulling.

    From a bystander's perspective, it's puzzling why you're even in this section of the forum, let alone talking about the speed of wi-fi in South Korea.

    I just popped my SIM car back into my nexus and tested the speeds. I got like 3 mbps down 1 up. On my S3 I got around 10 mbps down 11 up.

    Let me rephrase my previous response. I'm here because I don't want to talk to myself in some dark forgotten part of the forum because I'm cursed with an awesome international phone the US will never see. Sorry for bothering you. I'll go back to the hole I crawled out of.

    There's no problem with you posting in other forums if you have something constructive to contribute to the threads in that forum. The problem is that you're coming off as a d!@%. It's perfectly fine for you to post your 4g speeds, but adding that your phone is better than the US version, or that Korea has the fastest internet in the world, helps no one here in this thread. We just got our GS3s, that have 2GB of RAM, so it does not matter if the US version of your phone only has 1GB. We probably wouldnt buy it anyway. Have a great day

    I had my tb for some time and could NEVER break the 30mbps barrier, and i had 3 or 4 tb, so I know that it was not a defect in my phone. Both my rez and s3 were able to break the 60mbps barrier. This is with many tests throughout multiple days at the same location. There are other phones that get good speeds, others not as good. These are generalizations of course, based on the testament of those who have had multiple phones as well.

    Sure, you can post your opinion, it's a free country (well, at least the US is, which is where the Verizon gs3 is sold, and this being a Verizon gs3 forum and all). But please, keep it related to the Verizon gs3. if you wish to discuss rumored phones, then there is a forum for that.

    Why do you people continue to test speeds using wifi? Forget that, it means nothing

    What you should be testing is how 4 G compares to your 3G speeds on a daily basis using sites like CNN or anything with lots of text and graphics. I can tell you for a fact that in real world day to day web browsing, my Verizon iPhone 4s spanks the galaxy loading up full sites. And when using the reader option, by the time I read from the iPhone reader, the galaxy reader barely finishes its format. Pathetic.

    I tried to compare the 4s with my rezound over mobile data. Rezound was faster most of the time. Of course, we are comparing a 4g vs 3g phone. With regards to your gs3, make sure that it is in iPhone mode(some browsers have this option) , and disable flash.
