    Just for fun I installed the Speed Test app. Here are my results:

    4g @ home: DL: 13954 bkps UL:14991 kbps
    WIFI @ home (Comcast cable internet): DL: 10336 kbps UL:4105 kpbs
    4g@work: DL: 20577 kbps UL: 5481 kbps

    Some surprising numbers there. That UL speed on 4G at home is sick. And that DL speed on 4G at work is even more sick.

    This is very impressive.

    One thing about the upload speeds we get. It let's us know how my much our home and work internet providers are screwing us.

    I was pretty happy. At home I got:

    Wifi - 11.165 mbps
    4g - 12.851 mbps

    I only have a 10 mbps plan for my home internet, so I'm happy with those numbers, but it is kind of crazy that 4G would actually be higher. It is even better when I have a better signal.

    I was blown away by the network performance in Las Vegas, I was getting something like 18Mbps down and 5 Mbps up pretty consistently. That's pretty much as fast as my cable internet at home- I blew through 800MB in a weekend just downloading audio books and watching Netflix haha...

    Thing is Comcast doesn't blink if I pull down 200GB in a month at home... my guess is Verizon would squawk if I passed the 10GB mark even though I have a grandfathered-in "Unlimited" plan.

    I think we should all plan a data fest pick a week, and everyone all at the same time start on a Monday and use as much data as possible and meet back on a Sunday night to report data usage ...no wifi, extra tethering, downloads, YouTube etc winner gets a TBH moto programming cable or something we can use that's not real expensive ...get enough people we can stress test vzws network as well...yeah im babbling ..tired :)

    Comcast caps data usage also. You are only allowed 250GB per month. Once you hit your allowed amount they suspend your internet service until the start of your next billing cycle. They do give you a warning the first time you exceed your 250 and allow you to keep service. I got my warning about 2 years ago when they started there cap. At the time I averaged 300-500GB per month.

    As far as verizon goes there are plenty of people on here using 20-30GB per month with no action against them. I am well over 10GB a month now.

    It would be interesting to see how much data some people could suck up in your test week.

    wow!! Your not being data throttled?

    My speed

    Home Comcast: 25 mbps down / 6 mbps up

    Home 4g: (constant 3 bars signal strength) 12 mbps down / 6 mbps up

    Work 4g: (5 bars signal strength) 25 to 30 mbps down most of the time when I checked. I have gotten 34 mbps down multiple times / 13 mbps up I have gotten 18 mbps up a few times when I checked from a different area.

    Really. I was thinking somethings wrong for me to get the high upload speeds on 4G. Seems the price I pay for home internet....all I'm paying for is download speeds.

    50-60Mbps down, 10Mbps up. If 4G can give me almost the same upload speeds as my download.....I should be getting at least 30-40Mbps up from Comcast...

    I was shocked to find this out recently. I do not remember seeing that before.

    Yes I do ..........But I am rooted. I was told I could get it for 30$ unlimited because I am grandfathered in on unlimited. I also use a wireless tether apk.

    Edit .......I am not paying for the hotspot.

    I'm routinely seeing speeds of around 24-32Mbps in Minneapolis.

    Unfortunately my comcast connection doesn't compare. I pay for the 16mbps cable and usually only see around 4-6Mbps down and 3 up. Now, if I do that same test around 4 AM I get close to 16 down on comcast.

    Needless to say, I don't even bother connecting my RAZR to my wifi anymore.

    If they even dare say anything, you tell them I was streaming Netflix on my TV all day and night! Netflix app is part of the droid market, used on a phone, approved by Verizon, that has an hdmi output. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!! ;)

    If I wasn't such a big xbox live gamer I would get rid of my home Internet and just tether this phone to my laptop. But being that I am an online gamer, there's nothing like the reliability of a hardwired Ethernet cable.
