    Verizon average speed: 944.42 kbps
    AT&T average speed: 546.16 kbps
    T-Mobile average speed: 885.7 kbps
    Alltel average speed: 840.94 kbps
    Metro PCS average speed: 548.52 kbps
    AT&T fastest? Really? Metro PCS beat them out.

    Metro PCS FFS.

    Also, from East Lansing, MI:


    Ran a few tests, and this was the highest. Others were between 675 and 975 kbps.

    So on what basis does AT& T do their advertisement bragging otherwise?
    Pure lies or what?

    According to that chart, they need to advertise they are the "slowest!"
    I guess they figure that with a pretty face like Luke Wilson in their commercials, their iPhone-toting herd of sheep will continue to "baa" pleasantly and believe everything they tell them.

    Problem is, they're right.

    Recalling another thread or two that I read (I can't recall which ones for the life of me -- Sorry!), it might be that their network has the capability to be the fastest. In a perfect world, their infrastructure at a certain point would allow them to be the fastest of the listed networks. Problem is, we don't live in a perfect world. Far from it, as we see with the real average speed listed for AT&T. So while they are unlikely to be in any legal trouble over false advertising, it's still unethical to claim they're the fastest, and Luke Wilson is still a douchebag.

    I remember in school if I made 3 100's and one zero because I didn't turn in my work.. I still only made a "C" with a score of 75.

    Maybe everytime AT&T's signal drops out, it kills what would have been a good score... or are they not even counting that either?

    Isn't that kinda like saying sex is good!.... if and when I can get it, but too many misfires and can't keep up the pace?
    Does AT&T have a pill for that?

    opps... just realized.. this is my 666th post!

    I'm laughing too hard to figure out how exactly to respond to this.

    I got 1322 Kbps on my 3G the other day when i tested it. I tested my speed at IP-Details.com and was pleased with that speed.

    Just remember your bottleneck is not the distance from the cell towers to the servers for "speedtest.net".... its the 3g correspondence with the tower is where your real worry is at.

    For those close to a server like myself, I see no real difference between accessing the closest server verses one several hundred miles away...... so don't sweat it.

    Every test you do will be variable from the previous anyway..... many more variables are involved that have more influence over your actual speed comes into the picture, the distance from the server once it hits cable is negligible.
