    T-mobile smartphone speeds fastest; VZW slowest

    4G Wireless Speed Tests: Which Is Really the Fastest? - PCWorld

    I guess most of us like VZW because of its breadth of 3G coverage, I like to listen to internet radio and access the web when driving in remote areas, and being able to call while driving in remote areas, but wow T-Mobile's 3G speeds are twice as fast... ugh

    Interesting that the article insinuates that Verizon is letting their 3G network lag to concentrate on 4G.

    Try to keep in mind that Verizons first 4G phone doesn't even come out until the 17th.

    Yeah, but twice as fast where? Did they speedtest where T-Mobile's 3.5G coverage is lacking or next to a tower?

    The article clearly states when the tests were done. If VZW didn't have a 4G phone it was VZW's problem not the magazine's.

    I don't understand why you allege a conspiracy. In the same article VZW's modems' were clearly the winners. I doubt they would be having an agenda against VZW or that they were somehow sponsored. I don't understand why people get so defensive about such a result of phone speeds.

    Like you can see I've had VZW since 11/09 and while I have not been particularly happy with their speeds, I will likely join their LTE phones as long as their tiered plans don't get too crazy.

    Too late for that...i think 80 dollars for 10 GB at LTE speed is a joke of a plan. Count me out, I'll stick with their long in the tooth 3G

    Seriously? That is outrageous. What a joke. Like 30 bucks isn't enough already?

    4G phone plans have not been released.

    $80/10GB is for the mobile broadband services. I really wish people would quit saying that those are the phone plans.

    Additonally, if you read what the Panda posts, they actually pulled people off of 4G development to improve 3G for the iPhone.

    For the most part, I've stopped correcting people. Those mobile broadband plans are the SAME PRICE as they were for 3G.

    AT&T just said the other day they are going to cap home broadband at 180gigs. Just block torrents (it's illegal anyway) and I don't see how anyone can reasonably hit over 100 gigs.
