    PC Mag recently did a little research to find who truly has the fastest data connection in the nation, and it seems Verizon gets bragging rights for this one. The publication ran countless speed test in 21 cities saying “But you shouldn’t believe the hype: All “4G” is not the same. In a 21-city test across the United States, we found that Verizon’s new 4G LTE network is much faster than other mobile Web options, with speeds that often exceed home Internet connections.”

    The speed Verizon’s LTE network produced manhandled the other entire network by comparison. The closest competitor Verizon had was T-Mobile with their “4G” network, but the speed T-mobile produced in their max test results were well below half that of Verizon’s LTE network. Verizon knows speed, and this result is certainly proof that they aren’t just lying to themselves when they say they’re the most advanced network.

    Nice! I don't have a 4G phone, but good for VZ!
    Now they need to get more 4G phones on sale, with dual processors and the latest other specs.

    Right. Upgrading the entire network to this technology isn't free. If we want it then we have to pay for it. Verizon is not a charity, it is a business. Now if they just get LTE where I live next year. I'm eligible for a NE2 phone in a month. I don't know if I should wait for a 4G one or just get a D3 or X2.

    Vzw has the fastest 4g but the worst phones out of all the carriers. I so wish Sprint was better in my area, they really care about their relationship with andriod.

    I'd probably wait. Quad core phones are supposed to be here by year's end. They are supposed to be super battery efficient.

    Pretty sure that is total opinion.

    I usually pull anywhere from 5-13 down, but there is one area in town that I consistently pull 33+ down. This is while tethered, not just using the speed test from the phone.

    i found it online somewhere, dont remember where but that time frame has been stuck in my head ever since. everywhere around me has 4G (Ithaca, Cornell, Rochester, NYC) EXCEPT Binghamton, and im really kind of annoyed about it. we have like 3 colleges here, and its the crossroads on all of those cities...and were not getting it for another year. thats ass-backwards if you ask me.

    Does the number for download mean how many MBs a second it can, well, download?
    Because I am pretty sure 33 MB/s is impossible. It would download a full movie in like 15 seconds.

    It's showing 33 Mb/s, not 33 MB/s. The capitalized B would mean Bytes, but since it's lowercase, it's bits. So it's 33 Megabits per second.

    Still, just about 4.125 megabytes per second is blistering fast IMHO. 33 mbit/s, 4.125 mB/s, its all the same....hahaha

    Yep, its still amazing.
    That means it could download a 45 minute TV show in about 30 seconds.
    (Most TV shows of that time are about 120MB)

    As of now on 3G, it takes about 15 minutes. Even though I really don't mind the wait.
