Are these caps a joke?

5 Mbps downstream, 1 Mbps upstream with a 10 GB monthly usage cap for $40 a month (plus equipment fees).

Cell phone providers do better than this on 3G speeds...

Theoretical limit for EVDO 3G is 3.1mbps and some of that is reserved by the tower.....

You'll never see 5mbps on CDMA/EVDO 3g!

Re: Are these caps a joke?

i did say EVDO 3G (cdma)........AT&T is a GSM network (edge, 3g, hspa, hspa+, lte)

Regardless, speedtest.net results are always inflated and inaccurate.

Well, I was going to, but it looks like I just got saved the trouble. For the record, I consistently did ~5-6 Mb/s down and ~1-2 Mb/s up with an average of 20-40ms of latency (to Google Public DNS) with a Motorola Cliq (and that phone was terrible) on T-Mobile with 3G; and that's average data transfer speeds.

Tmobile is a GSM carrier as well.

I love how AT&T used to call HSPA+ 4G.... (the public called it FAKE 4G). Now with 4G LTE, they can really advertise 4G.

Verizon and Sprints CDMA EVDO 3G still never achieves more than 3.1mpbs
