The Fastest Networks
would like to see what the 3G speeds where on verizon and sprint..
Also thank you for taking the time to do these tests and post the results for those of us who want to know but are unable to perform these kinds of tests ourselves.
So Sprint #1, Verizon #2, then who cares after that..
Sprint has the 2nd fastest data speeds.
Obviously the largest footprint nationwide.
Defininately the most devices...
*Multiple aircards etc.
*2 4G Phones (EVO & EPIC)
& The best Value w/ (inc. unlimited 4G data).
Doing a MiFi 2200 (portable WiFi-to-3G gateway) the CHEAP way
Great article phonescoop, Bravo... Bravo!
AD discussions continues below...
No VZW LTE or Sprint WiMAX here... AT&T or T-Mo
Variable in different cities
So out of t...
New Tech Speeds for your Cell Phone
You'll also want to consider devices... There are currently 2 on Verizon, while Sprint has 13+ devices including Cellphones! The last claim made by Verizon was phones comming the second half of 2011 (chalk up another year).
And lets not forget spectrum, I don't know about you, but when I'm driving my car down the highway during rush hour I would rather have Sprints 8 lane highway than Verzion's 2 lane highway any day.
Denver is a bit different...
T-Mobile has by far the lowest latency out of anyone, with 45-70ms to locations local to Denver. They also "feel" faster than the other providers in terms of page load speed and general mobile broadband experience, though in a few locations they'll fall back to EDGE or just stall out. That said, uploads top out around 650 kbps (though I know TMo can do 1.5 Mbps or so...saw it in Austin). Downloads OTOH vary from 1.5 Mbps (backhaul-constrained) to 11 Mbps, depending on where you are. No real average; it just depends on the tower you're on.
