  • Iphone 5 is going to be the only decent 4G phone :p

    Wow, you get pretty awesome speeds already... I rarely get above 3mbit in Oxford.

    If I have all 5 bars on 3G I get:

    But If I have 2-3 the usual while I am at home then I get about 4.22

    Complete bullshit. Almost noone needs 10mbit+ on a mobile.

    That's some pretty nice results. I'm pushing 6Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up on 3G lately at my day job. It's funny because the internet is a T1 line (complicated). I pay for a consumer product that runs 6x the speed. That's the best 4G result I've seen, but I haven't exactly been looking around at them. Usually AT&T's "4G" speeds here in the US run identical to my 3G speeds.

    Dont they call HSPA+ 4g in america? or is that just t-mobile who call it that.

  • I believe one or two carriers in US calls DC-HSPA as 4G, isn't it? At least, in the case of Atrix 4G...

    Selling multiple 2000-user GApps :) Shoot me a message to make an offer.

    Whatever their LTE trash is. I've seen it run half a mbit over 3G at best, in real life tests with me on the iPhone 4 and Ryan on the 4S, anywhere from WV to Dallas to Austin. Need a roommate? I want 12mbit mobile...

    Sadly every provider here has caps from 500mb (10€/month) to 5gb (25€/month) :/

    Mine too. It's $10 per 1GB over. I'm working on 7GB this month. I refuse to use this T1...

    Same here with most operators. but most don't charge you if you go over they just slow the connection down to stupid speeds and in t-mobiles case they block everything that isnt basic http browsing. Like flash streaming etc.

    Latency is improved a lot as well with LTE, so that's a big plus you can actually feel.

  • @Kairus said: Latency is improved a lot as well with LTE, so that's a big plus you can actually feel.

    Compared to hspa+ not much by the looks of things. maybe 10-20MS max

    I used to easily be able to get 15Mbps over HSPA+, but for some reason now I struggle to get 0.01Mbps, causing SpeedTest to outright fail.

    image

    Might be a coincidence that in my area DSL has massively slowed down now as well, in the mornings I might be able to get 6Mbps, in the evenings I am lucky to get 2Mbps.

    The UK government does not care about the rural areas, my internet is slower then 95% of the country now. Doing online task is becoming an struggle. Feel lucky you can upload an image, I can't.

    Last month I only used 1GB, since I left my phone literally always at home.

  • Some of my friend can get up to 20mbps with dc hspa+ 42mbps here in Malaysia. Still waiting LTE rolling early next year though.

  • @gsrdgrdghd said: Complete bullshit. Almost noone needs 10mbit+ on a mobile.

    LTE itself isn't 'complete bullshit' as it helps to improve broadband coverage in rural areas. And mobile devices are going the same way as computers in terms of 'connectivity', so we're always on the hunt for more bandwidth.

    Still, how LTE is being released in the UK is a bit of a shambles as it means EE has (at least) a years head-start compared to the rest of the networks (who have to wait to the spectrum auction later next year).

    Thats good. Gives them time to update there crappy networks. For example u ever done a speed test on vodafone? 100ms+ ping

    EE are being forced to give some 1800Mhz to Three last time I heard, so Three should be able to roll out a 4G network quick if they are given approval. Although I'd hope they wait till 800Mhz for better coverage.

    Turns out my slow HSPA+ was due to the ROM I was using with errors in its radio binarys, switched back to stock and massive improvement.

    Give it an hour or two. will be slow again :)

    btw what apn u using?

  • @DanielM said: btw what apn u using?

    three.co.uk, I tried 3internet and theres no difference. Also Three's auto-sign on does not work under 3internet

  • @MrLabradoodle said: three.co.uk, I tried 3internet and theres no difference. Also Three's auto-sign on does not work under 3internet

    three.co.uk is natted, proxied, and god knows what else.

  • @DanielM said: three.co.uk is natted, proxied, and god knows what else.

    Yeh, but I have not noticed any reduction in speed using it.

    The Original Daniel.

  • @DanielM said: 100ms+ ping

    I get 200ms+ ping on 3G.

    This signature is brought to you by the NSA. Spying on the entire world since 1952!

  • So it seems 4G will be coming to Sheffield; knowing my luck it will stop just before Doncaster (where I live, not far out of Sheffield). Lucky to get a decent EDGE signal here sigh

  • MrAndroidMrAndroid Member

    I probably won't get 4G till the 800Mhz auction. But I am going to stick with Stock ROM for my phone so I can get the decent HSPA speeds.

    The Original Daniel.

  • @TheHackBox said: I get 200ms+ ping on 3G.

    Exactly. I can get less than 40ms during the night on t-mobile. voda need to upgrade there 3G before they consider 4G

  • @DanielM said: Exactly. I can get less than 40ms during the night on t-mobile. voda need to upgrade there 3G before they consider 4G

    Voda should pay their massive tax bill before Ofcom do anything for them.

  • @MrLabradoodle said: Voda should pay their massive tax bill before Ofcom do anything for them.

    Voda have come out regarding that saying that the UK allows it through loopholes. They pay more tax with there foreign companies. And this disgrace of a government doesnt appear to be doing much about it.

  • @DanielM said: Voda have come out regarding that saying that the UK allows it through loopholes. They pay more tax with there foreign companies. And this disgrace of a government doesnt appear to be doing much about it.

    I think it was found out Vodafone was doing it via illegal methods, but they made a deal with HMRC to only pay like 10%.

    You can disable the NAT and proxy in the webcontrol panel (at least both here in Austria, Hongkong and Israel - so i bet in the UK also)

    Three UK don't have nearly enough IPs to provide everyone their own IP, and they are still growing big, although still far away from Orange & T-Mobile.

  • Well they have 479K ip Addresses allocated to them.

    and nearly 10 million customers.

    Although hopefully they roll out IPv6, although they have no plans todo so. Although with IPv6 you can still enable a NAT-like firewall.
