Anyone else noticing HORRIBLE 3g speed?
Please list your state and rate your speed.
This shouldn't be a shock
It has been discussed repeatedly here on MR and all over the 'net
Haha, have fun on VZW. I'll be enjoying my HSPA+ here in Boston
It. Is. The. Same. Crap. Speeds. On. All. Verizon. Smart. Phones.
Why do people think that it's a per device thing?
Can you download the speedtest.net app and take a screen shot and show us how bad? Thanks
When you have lived for almost 4 years with EDGE speed on an iPhone, "crappy" Verizon 3G speed will be a blessing.
Why do verizon customers think the power of the big red will overcome all the flaws and drawbacks they KNOW ABOUT BEFORE PURCHASING
people complain about the antenna issue...known issue MONTHS before you purchased!
now they complain about the 3G speed...something there has been data on forever. Verizon has slow 3G. They always have. The iPhone is a great phone, but it isn't magical. It can't fix that.
CDMA- Better for voice
GSM- Better for Data.
This is to be expected. I bet you wont drop a call!
Total noob here.. can you tell me how to do that and how to UL it?
I can tell you what I got though and you can take my word for it.
.46 mbits ul
I don't know where you live in Jersey, but where I am (North Jersey), my family/friends' Verizon smartphones are consistently faster than any AT&T smartphone I've had, including the iPhone. At home I'm lucky to get 1mbps, whereas everyone I know on VZW gets at least 2mbps.
At work, AT&T is totally out of the question, especially since Verizon recently installed a cell tower 50 feet from the building. I'll be glad to finally be able to use my cell phone at work, as will the many people switching from AT&T to Verizon (as the vast majority of people here have iPhones).
Ok - so your data speed is not 8Mb Down and 4Mb up -- but can you make a phone call on your I-Phone?
No you won't (at least not on the iPhone). The iPhone 4 doesn't support HSPA+ lol.
We live in south jersey and have AT&T iPhones.
Marginally better than mine here in DC and I'm on AT&T
Yeah some of us can, in fact I never drop calls excpet on the beach, here in LA! I get great service, and fast data speeds. Don't hate.
My download speed, on average, at work is .02 mbps and my upload is .1 mbps. Since that's where I spend most of my time on the weekdays, as BryanLyle said, anything is an upgrade, with no dropped calls as a huge bonus.
my verizon speed was actually almost the same download and faster upload as my att iphone right next to each other and testing at the same time. in about 10 miles from BWI airport and downtown baltimore, so not in a rural area.
i posted the actual numbers in the vz vs att thread.
ATT in Indiana
Interesting cause I'm in LA and always dropped calls on my AT&T iPhones. Ever go to Silverlake with AT&T? A total joke! And our house up in Big Bear? Nada! Nothing! AT ALL! I'll be much happier on Verizon.
im running on my home network wi-fi
20.15 Mbps down
3.58 Mbps up
0.06 Mbps down
0.06 Mbps up
The less congested an area you live in the faster at&t's 3G speeds are. In Colorado at&t's 3G is easily faster than 1.5mbps DSL. Verizon is much slower. When I travel back to my hometown in Northern VA I'm appalled at the speed. It takes me twice as long to do anything that requires data. Best decision I ever made was moving away from the hell hole.
You're comparing Wifi to 3G? Really!? *facepalm*
good thing I am using this phone for phone calls and not large amounts of data..lol
OMG that's awful! Where are you located?
my droid x on verizon consistently gets slower 3G speeds compared to my iphone 4 on AT&T.
im getting about 4.0Mb/s down and 2.0 Mb/s up on AT&T
while verizon is getting about 1.5 Mb/s down and .7 Mb/s up
The ping times seem to be better on verizon though.
The speed tests were done via tethering to my MBA
AT&T Minneapolis, MN
1.9 down, 1.34 up. 260ms ping.
I think I'll wait for an LTE iPhone before I switch to Verizon. Coverage sucks badly in some areas, but it's pretty fast in places where it works (which, honestly is most places)
LTE on Verizon will mean fast speeds and good coverage (for me), so I'll wait.
