Did anyone see this today? Kinda discouraging:

Lifehacker, tips and downloads for getting things done

It places Verizon as the slowest LTE provider, on phones (fastest for modems). What does that mean exactly? FWIW these speeds look about the same or even less than what many of us get on 3G. I was hoping to see something significant gains here...

That chart is laughable. It's not even close to being accurate! There are plenty of CES speedtests floating around on YouTube showing greatly higher #'s than that.

Interesting since the TB is the first 4G smartphone on VZW. I'd love to know how they did their testing.

Like what? The speedtests were all for the 4G modems, weren't they?

Although that does make me wonder why a modem has one speed and phone has a different speed on the same network.

If you read the link within the link, they state they used a Droid 2 in this comparison of apples and oranges. So, yeah, I'd say T-Mobile's G2 is quicker than a D2.

Well that's ridiculous. It's not even a 4G phone!

A few things, a couple already said.
A phone, even a thunderbolt, atrix, etc., do not have the processing power of a laptop.
I've tested 3 LTE modems now and their speeds smoked that chart.
And...as said, they tested a 3G phone and called it a 4G test.

It's pretty sad how nearly all these sites used to have cutting edge news and information.
Now all they do is regurgitate other news, claim it there own....and with mostly false information.

In that case, it's ridiculous that even the D2 beat WiMax... lol no wonder sprint's rumored to be rethinking that :icon_eek:
