    I know T-Mobile plans to increase the new HSPA+ speeds but it would be interesting to see what everyone is getting and where? Download the speedmeter app through the Android Market.

    In Chicago Heights, IL a suburb of Chicago I got 5MB download and 1MB upload. This is the fastest I've gotten so far.

    In Highland, IN at the Highland Grove Shopping Center I got 3MB download.

    At my house in Schererville, IN I get crappy EDGE data speeds around 750kb. ):

    in Volo, IL on UMTS, I usually get 3 Mbps down

    in Woodstock, IL I hit 6.4 Mbps down on HSDPA

    in Libertyville, IL I've hit 4 Mbps down on unknown network.

    in Palatine, IL I've average 4 Mbps down on unknown network.

    I hardly do speedtests anymore, but when I'm in a decent HSPA+ area I get above 5mbps.

    Generally 7.5 to 8.0. I've seen 10 though it's rare and in the middle of the night and during peak hours it's more like 5 or 6 for forward channel. Twitpic - Share photos on Twitter

    Reverse channel is very rare to be over 1 mbps and often 200-400 kbps.

    Seems the average results on TMobile 4G are decent and in-line with Sprint's 4G (which I have clocked at 7Mb/s down 1Mb/s up on an Evo in VA).

    In Schaumburg, IL. I received 7.8 mbps but only recrive .68 mbps for upload... To be honest I was very shocked so I ran the test numerous times and got 8.1 and 6.6, I also went head to head with my co-worker who had an Evo, needless to say, it took him 5 minutes to hook up to WiMax and by the time he finally obtained a stable connection he was only able to achieve 4.3 mbps and his second test he got 5.7 mbps so even if they consider Hspa + advanced 3G network, then shame on Sprint for marketing WiMax as a faster network...

    I have clear at home and use a rover puck (which is also just rebranded clear/sprint 4G) mobile - generally I get somewhat better performance from tmobile's HSPA+ vs Sprint 4G, but there are some exceptions.

    In theory, you'd sort of expect Verizon LTE > Sprint/Clear 4G > HSPA+ given that Verizon gets 10 MHz in each direction, Sprint gets 10 MHz to share between both directions, and t-mobile gets 5 MHz in each direction, and verizon and sprint use higher order modulation than tmobile uses (in it's handsets, the rocket stick supports the same 64qam).

    Also in theory you'd sort of expect that in the end if a given tower had to support the same number of users for all the systems (say you had a Vzn tower, a sprint/clear tower and a tmobile tower) each covering 1000 users, the clear towers will be better off as they're devoting more spectrum per user (eg 30 Mhz per geographical sector per tower) compared to tmobile and verizon.

    It will be interesting seeing how next year unfolds.

    OH!!! Here's a link for those of you who need little convincing on Hspa+ potential...

    Also look at the distance from the Cell Tower, that is a key factor since the strength of the signal weakens the further you travel...

    Getting on average 5.5 on DL and a very steady 1.4 UL. These speeds are during peek ours during the day. At Night I can get up to 8-9 DL but my upload still stays at steady 1.4. I am very happy with T-Mobile.
    Still have My Nexus One and getting on average 4.5 on DL and steady 1.4 UL.
    The best part of t-Mobile's Network is they are not charging an extra 10 bucks a month for the HSPA+.

    THANK YOU T-MOBILE.

    You must be in way out NWI. I get 3G UMTS here. I'm also in NWI. I'm in the less remote area of NWI.

    Schererville, Merrilville, St. John, and Crown Point all have very spotty 3G coverage but mostly EDGE. T-Mobile's coverage map is somewhat difficult to read. It claims that Fast Mobile Web is 3G when I'm getting EDGE in those areas like 97% of the time. Where are you located in NWI?

    Thanks for adding a sticky to my thread.

    I'm in Valpo mostly. Also in Portage, Hobart, sometimes Crown Point and Cedar Lake. The only time I really see Edge is driving on route 6 between Valpo and Portage. A few occasions other than that I see it but 97% of the time for me it's UMTS (or HSPA if I'm close to Griffith).

    Inconsistent speeds in Chicago near O'Hare Airport.

    I ran these back to back about a mile away from the airport. (notice the time in the top right corner)

    Ok I take back all of NWI not having 3G coverage. I'm in Highland, In getting download speeds of 5mb. I'd post a screenshot of speedtest but I don't know how lol.

    I am in the Portland, OR area: I get about 3.4m to 6m down, typical is about 5 or 6 though. Up is pretty consistent at .65m. The only time I got 1.5m up was when I was in Seattle for a weekend (and I got an 8m down once there too).

    Practical use though... things load and download pretty darn fast so I'm not complaining. I switched to a new SIM about a month or so into my phone to see if that speeds things up.. it didn't.

    The easiest way is to use shootme to take the screen shot and photobucket to upload them to the website then login here to link them.

    I tried many different ways and this is the easiest. Photobucket is free and the app works great.
