4G Networks Tested: WiMAX vs. HSPA+
table of data:
Also of note:
Sprint's 3G Network is about 1/3rd of the speed of AT&T's. My average on Sprint is 700kbps, my average on AT&T is 2058 kbps. Very rarely do I even break 900kbps on Sprint.
Sprint's WiMax Network isn't significantly faster than T-Mobile and AT&T's 3G Network. - Right now with decent signal from AT&T on the slower 3.2mbps network I beat 4 of the WiMax scores on Sprint's network.
WiMax coverage isn't nearly as solid as HSDPA - Just because an area is "covered" doesn't mean you get a usable signal...
Very insightful Rich
lol--WiMax! WiMax! WiMax...
Gotta love a nice plate of crow.
The big 4
But I think it fail to note whats the possibilities of 4G...
If I'm not mistaken 4G is cheaper to build upon to make faster, so for every X amount of money you put in to infrastructure with 4G, you will get X amount increase in speed. The 4G is cheaper to build upon to make faster then 3G or something like that.
But also how come Phone Scoop didn't have AT&T on there?
3G started out with technology like WCDMA that only achieved 384 kbps, then it evolved through various upgrades ...
real world experience in NYC with T-Mobile
3.75G: up to 9Mbps
latency is around 100-150ms (3.75 is lower).
Are you using a rocketstick or a phone to test this?
