Speed Tests: What does 4G really mean?

Jacob S Paulsen

I believe that mobile technology is at the heart of freedom. I believe that your phone is a tool of production and that the key to unlocking a new age of productivity and effectiveness is leveraging correctly the tool you take everywhere.

    It depends, my Sprint 4G in my area is far faster than those you’ve posted, I average 7.5-8MBPs down on the EVO http://twitpic.com/2o1ar9 but I think region plays a big role.

    What is a Samsung axis? That’s not even a4g phone. Those speed tests don’t really apply the 4g tests. To do a real test. Get an Evo and the other 2 phone and download or upload the same huge file and you will see the difference. I uploaded a75 mb video to youtube on a1 bar 4g signal in less then 2 minutes. The same video took more then 20 min on a full bar of wifi. Just do real tests with real files, and not an app that probably doesn’t have a4g update built in.

      Sorry about the axis confusion. I typed the article on my phone and somehow the auto spell checker corrected me or I bumped something. It should have been Epic but I’ve corrected it above

    Just as a follow up I just did a speed test with my T-Mobile phone, a Droid on Verizon, and the Epic on Sprint here in Vegas. Sprint has the fastest download speed but the upload was awful. Verizon had amazing upload speed but the worst download. T-Mobile was is the middle on both counts.

    LA Doesn’t even officially have 4G yet and I’m pulling 5Mbps downloads around Hollywood and Culver City.
    WiMAX will probably get replaced with LTE, but right now, there’s NO faster wireless access in LA…
