misleading... how?

I completely fail to understand how the conclusions are "false" or "misleading". Our conclusion wasn't "T-Mobile beats Sprint". Our conclusion was that they're both fast.

If you removed location F, WiMAX would come out a bit faster on the average, on download speed, but I would still reach the same conclusion that HSPA+ is roughly comparable in speed and T-Mobile's claim of "4G speeds" is valid. That was the main point of the article.

The upload and latency numbers were quite consistent. That wasn't an "outlier". I highly doubt that more testing in more locations would have changed the solid conclusion that HSPA+ is faster in those regards.
