  • Just listened to this and it was very interesting. Question though, is it better to stay on a gsm network or does it really matter? I'm considering going back to Sprint since their network has greatly improved in my area. Posted via Android Central App
  • This was more of a discussion about the history of wireless and less about the actual testing of network speeds.

  • Fastest & most reliable certainly won't be Verizon... Unfortunately for Verizon, my 4G issue thread on their support forums is not unique. Seems like their 4G rollout is far from complete in "saturated" 4G urban areas.
