Data speeds significantly down SNJ, DE, Philly

Has any one in the Philly, South NJ, and North Delaware noticed that data speeds are almost none existent? I was out last night in North Delaware, I could not load any webpages. I reset my phone(Galaxy s3) and it did not make a different. My wife runs with an original HTC Evo 4G, and she had the same problem. Today I drove up to Cherry Hill, Nj and back. Data speeds were also down there, and in Philly on my way home. Any one have any input into this?

I don't think that was in the plan.

It still sucks here. Wimax is clearwire LTE is a completely different deployment. The biggest issue here is that the the Oakies do not even have 4G in their town and are completely worthless. I spent over 2 hours on the phone with them today. I get about 1mb down and 1.2 to 1.5 up but what is interesting is that when I get 1.7 down I only get about .5 up the total is always about the same. Throttling??????

I was smoking for a year and a half then it died Aug 1 had my device replaced and never got the same results since. It was fair to marginal a couple weeks back but after a rain storm it started sucking again. I think it is now more stable but the bandwidth is lame. Maybe they are just broke after spending $15.5B for the iphone and are waiting for the FCC to approve the $8B softbank deal.
