iPhone 5,Galaxy S3, Evo4G LTE users, please post a snapshot of your speed in Mbps.

I already have an s3, I was thinking of switching to Verizon, I live in Washington, D.C. I don't know how long I can wait for lte. I get 0.1-0.7 Mbps. This is depressing specially the fact that we pay an extra $10 for "premium data". Yeah  right

I want to see how the lte speeds are with you guys. Before I make a move to Verizon

hop over to the network and coverage forums and you'll have a better chance of seeing what people are posting with their LTE speeds.

From an S3 in San Antonio, TX. Faster than my road runner at home.

The $10 is for unlimited data not speed...

I cant give you a screenshot now but LTE service in Fort Worth, Tx is a joke.

Sure my Galaxy S3 gets 4g LTE signal now but the speeds are laughable at best.

I have never gotten over 2 Mbps and typically the speed is around 800 Kbps.

My 2.5 year old Evo on WiMax gets 2-3x the speed my GS3 does on LTE.

At least you have something the service is not 100% up yet they say it will get better.

You also have to consider that you may be on the edge of the tower output. If that is the case you could be getting a weak connection therefore weak throughput speeds.

worse case scenario he can run something like opensignal and see which tower he/she is connecting too when they spot the LTE...then drive closer and see if it changes for them or not.

Just to be clear I have tested my 4G LTE in multiple locations all over Fort Worth, Keller, Grapevine, Southlake.

The closest to a tower I have run a test would be about 200 feet.

Only once have I ever gotten over 10Mbps and I immediately retested to see it again (I was in shock) and the speeds were down below 2Mbps the next time.

I dont know what is going on.  Why were Verizon and ATT able to deploy and have great speeds from the get go but Sprint cannot??? Why is everything so difficult for Sprint?

Why because Sprint went with WiMax instead of LTE that's why bad move.Just like Sony with Betamax and VHS you guess wrong and you are behind everyone else.If they had gave up on it sooner more of the network would be done.

probably because sprint is trying to pull of this upgrade in just over 2 years...it took roughly 4 for V and ATT..
