    Well they tweeted them later in the day. They had like 4 or 5 tweets after the initial tweet.

    Yeah. I'd say they are probably doing some final testing before going live on Thursday.

    Are you using the new speedtest.net app or the old one? Just wondering because the up seems a little high but maybe not since your other ones seem to be right.

    EDIT: Saw where you clarified you have the new app, sorry.

    Well let me add that I did in fact install the new app but this morning I got an update on it and haven't had a chance to do another test since the app update.

    It's absolute CRAP that Columbia is getting it and we still don't have it here in Augusta.

    Ok, here's the SpeedTest.Net results since the app was updated. Keep in mind I'm in an area that has been going between 3G and 4G so it's not solid 4G reception:

    Ping---146ms
    Download---15593kbps
    Upload---3870kbps

    Just so you know, you can change the settings so it shows the results in Mbps instead of kbps.

    I'm running Radio Companion and decided to do a speed test and I still got...

    Ping: 128ms
    Dowload: 17.49Mbps
    Upload: 11.16Mbps

    That's pretty good for streaming audio at the same time.

    Ping: 133ms
    Download: 38.16Mbps
    Upload: 10.79Mbps

    The upload is a good sign. It still seems a little high, but it's consistent I don't think I've gotten over 20Mbps.

    No big deal. I also have mine set for best performance. The dial doesn't move as smoothly, but the results are a lot more consistent.

    I keep checking my phone with my fingers crossed and hoping I see that 4G LTE logo but no dice yet. May just have to take a trip to the parents this weekend to test it out in Wilmington if the switch doesn't get flipped in Raleigh.

    I hate the fact that Savannah isn't getting 4G anytime soon....but I have to go to a wedding in Columbia on Friday, and this will make it almost worth it.

    It seems to be best connection in the NorthEast area. I work on Fort Jackson and have been testing it and it has been switching a lot between 3and4G. However, at home last night when I started this I had straightup 4G and man is it fast.
