I am not sure but you seem to be using different test servers at different locations when you are running the two phones simultaneously. Different paths give different results. Also Speedtest.net is notorious for giving bad download speed data. Try using ispgeeks »www.ispgeeks.com/wild/ or testmy »testmy.net/. They give me consistently more accurate results. Speedtest once told me my AT&T 6.0 DSL was giving 90 Mbps download.

@comcast.net

I told you that you ARE being throttled bro, for using 2GB.

You need to dump Verizon all ready join me on AT&T.

david: I have tested myself over and over with no speed test over 700kbs. I have seen him get 200kbs on there "4g" LTE before. I used 4 speed tester's + the Verizon speed tester and they all say the same thing. I told him to wait for AT&T's 4g LTE, but he wanted Verizon cool's vile and now he is living in it. I tried to help, but this network of Verizon blows. I know a lot about this kind of thing, because I work for AT&T.

All the speed tester's I used alot:

1) »www.speedtest.net/

2)»www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

3) »reviews.cnet.com/internet-speed-test/ (for downloads)

4) »www.att.com/speedtest/

I've been pretty happy at 11 up/down but the last couple of days they suck!

yep they cannot throttle you look it up under fcc verizon rules stipulations sounds like the tower your on is going in and out i personally just went through this number 1 if you have another 4g verizon phone speedtest it that will eliminate the thought of bieng throttled by law through the fcc verizon cannot throttle you second thing go to your nearest tower if you dont know where it is look on antenna search and you can find it third if it is the tower dont even bother with tech 2 because those c##k s#ckers dont no anything ask for network department took me 4 weeks of calling but i got mine fixed i had 1mb down 50kbs up 550 to 775 ms with 5 bars of 4g be persistent you will get it fixed good luck and i dont think your being throttled

I owe VZW an apology. Whacked half a tree from in front of my house that was in the line of sight to the tower 7 - 10 miles away:

Yeah, its a really thick Mulberry that's only about 15 feet in front of my house and the yagi antenna on top. Note I only whacked about half of it (before some other joker flames me like the one on the Verizon 4G-LTE community forum). So during the winter/early spring I wouldn't see a problem. I mainly post this because I've read that LTE is much less sensitive to trees than EVDO but at point of reception at least, that doesn't appear to be the case.

Very interesting... I thought that the frequency that lte was on was supposed to be more tree resistant as well.. Hmm, Thanks for mentioning this
