4G Network Speeds Compared

Not surprised to see all of the 4G false advertising commercials marketing to convince consumers that they have the fastest network. Also, 4G network pricing compared reveals that pricing is all over the map ranges from $25 to $80 per month and some 4G networks don't work on cell phones.  Sprint is currently the only network with working 4G capabilities using their 4G WiMAX standard. T-Mobile HSPA+ 4G & AT&T HSPA+ 4G have upgraded their 3G network to support HSPA+ speeds which are capable of 4G network speeds around 21 Mbps. Phone Scoop created this chart comparing the upload and download speeds. The speed tests were performed at 6 different locations in Philadelphia, PA. In summary, T-Mobile came out the faster network hands down.

Our theory has always been its best to be a customer on a network where there are the fewest people. So if AT&T and Verizon each have 80M+ customers its probably a good idea to look at one of the smaller carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint / Clearwire, Tracfone, MetroPCS or one of the hundreds of regional or rural carriers. As always we would appreciate any commentary and feedback from users.  Right now T-Mobile is #1 and has the best 4G coverage on their network.
