    I'm in the Chicago area with full signal strength. The best I got from speedtest.net app so far is 41mbps down and 10mbps up from Indianapolis, IN. It's amazing to my how this is over twice as fast down and 5 times faster up compared to my cable internet connection. What speeds is everyone else getting with 4G?

    The speed is awesome... problem is I cannot get the speedtest app to work.
    It loads up fine, I can change servers and all other settings.. but I cannot press the "Begin test" button *shrugs*

    Ignore that last post, speedtest app is now working.
    Best result was from a Chicago server... 26MB down, 8MB up.

    Thats just crazy.

    I'll have to try some of the other servers and see what I get

    Nice. So far, the fastest I've had so far is 17mbps on the edge of our 3G/4G area. When I go to work on Monday where I'll get full 4G signal, that'll be the true test.

    Wow, in Spokane, WA the best I've been able to get was 5.5mbps, which still is way better than the .75 to 1.5mbps i was getting on 3g, but kind of disappointing at the same time. Oh, and up speed has been about the same as my down speed.

    I always ask for free overnight... if you're nice most of the reps have no problem doing it.
    If they dont I just say something like "well, dont place the order yet.. I'm going to think about it some more"
    that usually gets them to pony up the free overnight ;)

    I really need to remember that anytime I order any electronics. Unfortunately I have class on Mondays, so I won't even get to play with it until 9 pm!

    That's about what I get from the Chicago server too. Try the Indianapolis one and see what you get.
