    Higuys. I have been running v2.2 for a couple of weeks now. Everything has been smooth with no problems but i noticed data and downloading seemed slow. Especially when hotspotting to bridgerouter.

    Pulled out the old speedtest.

    Eclipse:
    100+ ms ping
    900kbps down
    1.5mbps up

    Switched back to. 902 stocker:
    60ms ping
    10+mbps down
    3+mbps up

    Am i doing something wrong? Is eclipse throttling the throughput?

    Eclipse v2.2, 5.9.902, 2-3 bars 4g. Just ran these tests via SpeedTest app:

    74ms / 19.1 Mbps down / 12.0 Mbps up
    80ms / 18.4 Mbps down / 11.8 Mbps up
    86ms / 17.7 Mbps down / 13.4 Mbps up

    It sounds like you might be on 3g at the moment. Another thought, Verizon might have throttled you for some reason.

    Verizon does not throttle 4G speeds only 3G.

    Which server you connect to makes more difference in speed results than any other factor. Change the server and see what happens. Because of this I don't put much stock into speedtest.

    I'm not sure about Verizon throttling data, really not for 4g, the network is set up for heavy data usage. And it's more efficient at handling it. I just started using eclipse 2.2 so far, yet to notice any 4g issues will post again if I see a difference.

    Update: so far ROM is solid. The only thing I notice is when I'm at work it switched to 3g more often then usual. And I have an extended battery that looks like it's draining super fast. But I think that's a false reading. from what I read they say to let the battery drain completely then recharge it and out should fix that issue

    thats not true i get throttled alot using my 4G connection during 3pm to about 11pm EST i notice a huge diff when downloading things (torrents) my speeds greatly increase at night than during those times stated. and ive noticed thats its not always doing it but it happens usually about 3-4 times a week.

    keep in mind im tethering and i leave my phone in the exact same place everyday and ive used speed test daily over a months time to see if it was my phone or verizon and its definitely verizon throttling my connection

    have you tried resetting battery stats?
