    Low Thunderbolt 4G Speeds

    Has anyone else noticed this? Yesterday I went into the Verizon store and ran a speedtest using a Bionic, Charge, Droid 4, Nexus, RAZR, RAZR MAXX, and all of them were getting 25-30Mbps download, however I ran it on my Thunderbolt several times and I was getting around 6-10Mbps. I'm curious if it's all Thunderbolt's or just mine, as I'm rooted running a custom ROM and kernel.

    When I first got my Thunderbolt and went down to Boston where they had 4G, I was getting 30Mbps+, but I recall that being an issue with the speedtest app.

    have you updated to the newest radio? It might be just me but even though I love custom roms, I seem to get the best overall experience with the stock, rooted roms.

    I do have the latest radio, but I have experienced the same thing you have. I was running a CM7-based ROM for a while and my speeds were around 2-6Mbps, but with a Sense 2.1 ROM I was able to get the 6-12Mbps speeds.

    I was in a 4G area last week, and speed test.net reported no more than 5 mbps down, meanwhile last June I was pulling upwards of 29 mbps

    Highest I've ever gotten on my RAZR was 16 download. That was in Little Rock, Arkansas. Usually I'm around 8-10 in Arkansas and Texas where I've tested. This is really low compared to y'all...
