Oooohhhh big whoomp 1.5 upload
I'll still be using my D Charge though.
On Verizon LTE I get 3-7mbps upload speeds, sometimes even a little higher
1. Clear WiMAX operates in 10 MHz of spectrum; VZW LTE operates in 20 MHz of spectrum. On a per MHz basis...
Bottom line is it's easy to provide quick speeds when no one is using the network.
It's Clearwire, not Sprint.
BTW, may Clearwire increase the outgoing to 3Mbps?
