    I haven't been getting even close to 10Mbps lately. I was thinking it was just my phone but when I was at the Verizon store today speeds were that slow on all their devices. Tried it on Razr, Bionic and GNex. All were slow. What happened to 20+Mbps?

    There are probably more people on the towers in your area (or you could have had a tower go down in an adjacent area, thus increasing your traffic). The 10-30Mbps speeds probably won't be typical; it's more like 5-7Mbps in my area since we don't have many towers so there's congestion. Still a lot better than 3G, though.

    It's just you....actually more like just where you are at a certain time where there is either a heavy load or system problems.

    When I tried at home it was the same speed as when I tried it at the Verizon store at the mall of america, 2 hours from my normal area.

    I haven't seen a decrease in speed here in the bay area.

    My average speeds results here at home:

    I'm consistently getting between 10-12+ mbps in fairly rural NW Arkansas which is on par with my home WIFI. I'll be heading to Michigan to visit family in a couple weeks and was planning to speed test my phone in Springfield, MO, St. Louis, MO, Springfield, Ill., Chicago, Ill., and Grand Rapids, MI... as well as some of the more rural areas where I can get 4G. I can report what my results are if anyone is interested.
