I live in Columbus and just ran a test... 54.45/13.77!! Damn! Posted via the Android Central App
When I got home I ran the test again (after turning wifi off) and got 20.51/6.27 with only 2 bars.... BOOM!
Oh and I'm on unlimited... Can you VZW/AT&T/Un-Carrier apologists claim those speeds and unlimited?
0.83mbs upload That's what I get for $96 per month for 2 lines on their Framily Plan with a Galaxy S4 and Evo 4G LTE. We've been waiting 3 years.
"Fast EVDO speeds" - sh!t
"Super fast WiMax" - sh!t
"Lightning fast LTE - sh!t
"Ultra Fast Spark" - ?? (probably sh!t, why change now?) I was finally tired of putting up with all of their sh!t and I left for TMO. Saved from the lies and abuse of the worst mobile company ever, I can now say: TMO 2G (1-2Mbps) - Faster than Sprint LTE
TMO 4G (5-12Mbps) - 10x faster than Sprint LTE
TMO 4G LTE (15-40Mbps) - 30x faster than Sprint LTE So yeah, if I was betting ON Sh!t-I mean Sprint, I'd go ALL IN on "sh!t" and would win the hand, cause betting on "good" or anything better is a sure loss. And now for my customary.. F&@# YOU Sprint!! Dan Hessucks I'll see you in hell! >:( Posted via the Android Central App
