    Default Network speeds.

    Hello fellow s3 friends on big red;im on at&t with an s3 of my own. And was wondering,since verizon has the largest lte network,what are other s3 owners on big red gettin'.? I switched over to At&t from sprint which was the best choice of my life lol. Currently,here in Knightdale, Nc im getting anywhere from 10-29Mbs on downlink,and 4-10 uploads. What about you guys on big red.? Specific cities and or states would be much appreciated.
    Thanks.!

    I am in LA and have seen speeds in excess of 60 mbps multiple times on my gs3, and see in the 40s almost every day. Of course, speed depends on a variety of factors. Typically, I see 8-15mbps during peak periods with so-so signal. In fringe areas, signal would be less.

    One thing with att is that they operate on 5x5 in some cities, 10x10 in others. Verizon operates 10x10 just about everywhere.

    I get about the same, after coming from sprint where I never could crack .3 mbs I am just amazed. I did realize that the speedtest uses a big chuck of data during the test so I am not a serial tester like I was with sprint.

    Northern Colorado, Denver, and Colorado Springs all average around 13-17Mbps down and 8-10Mbps up. Network saturation. I've never seen any faster out here.

    I get around 30-40 Mbps download, and between 8-15 Mbps upload. This is in the Lehigh Valley PA (Allentown/Bethlehem/Whitehall area). Even when I don't get LTE, I get exceptional 3G speeds in areas I could barely even get 2G with other carriers (I've been with all of the big 4).
