In Series of 1,000 Speed Tests, Verizon LTE Topples Sprint WiMAX for 4G Supremacy

Sprint’s crown as the king of 4G has just been snatched. According to research by BTIG, the WiMAX network of Sprint is no longer the nation’s fastest, as Verizon’s freshly launched LTE network has come out on top during a recent battery of 1,000 speed tests taking place in New York City. Speeds were compared using the HTC EVO 4G for Sprint and the HTC Thunderbolt for Verizon and mobile hotspot functionality to pipe bandwidth to both an iPad 2 and Toshiba laptop.

Verizon’s LTE recorded average speeds of 9Mbps down and 5Mbps up. The WiMAX of Sprint saw an average of 1Mbps for both downlink and uplink speeds Verizon peaked at a speedy 19Mbps down and 10Mbps up. Analyst Walter Piecyk also noted Verizon’s 4G as more reliable and had nicer things overall to say about the HTC Thunderbolt when compared to the EVO 4G. See the chart below for the full results.

    I would say this test is slightly unfair due to the fat there is way more people on Sprints 4G Wimax network at the moment than Verizon’s 4G LTE Network. But obviously LTE would still be faster, but by how much is the question??

      No it is not. Just like when Sprint JUST launched their WiMax and were touting 6mb down and so forth and claiming to be the king of data speeds, their network was not saturated as well. Nowadays i’m lucky if i see past 2mb down. Months ago, i could actually get 4 – 6mbps, no more.

      I think there’s a correlation with Clear’s 4g speeds as well. On the USB stick i have i barely get past 3mb down.

        So you proved my point exactly. when sprint wimax came out you had faster speeds than u see now? why because there is more people than their was. this example is not a true example but just a comparison. imagine thee is some type of interent sending out 100 mb if there is ten people using it and all equally they will get 10mb each. Then if you have 100 people using the same data now u all get 1 mb. i am sure they sending out a lot more then that but just an example. Aztec

          I didn’t prove or disprove anything. I don’t remember the Sprint fanbois defending WiMax then as being unsaturated. LTE IS faster than Sprint’s WiMax. When nobody was on Sprint’s 4G they were touting it’s 3 – 6mb typical download (10mb bursts). LTE is getting 12 – 15 conservatively right now. Even when the hoards start cramming it, it’s still going to be faster than WiMax is right now.

            i dont like sprint that much honestly. gsm for and att is too expensive. but now i might be a part of it. but same will happen to verizon as it happened to all network providers, speeds will slow down, and i agree with the first comment. sprint should have play ball right and not play catch up.

            The big difference is that verizon will (and has) the money to dump into infrastructure where sprint is relying only on apthe sinking company known as clear. They have very little say and even they know they are in trouble as they will be way behind (like usual) the competition (especially verizon) nice they have to start over and use LTE as it is the much better tech. I think sprint always knew that and threw up a huge hail marry by partnering with clear to be the first to market. It worked tempoarilly but will come back to bite them hard as they will have a bunch of people on wimax phones thatwill not be compatible with their newwrr and better LTE network. The evo 3d is nice but I wouldnt sign a two year contract or even buy it outright when sprint has pretty much stated that LTE is in the near future and clear is only being supported by sprint and will more than likely not be a company in the next year following sprints migration to LTE. Millions of people will have phones like the 3d, nexus s 4g, evo, epic, Xoom tablet, samsung, etc etc etc. It will be a huge network fragmentation and most won’t get why their 6 month old phone they purchased on a two year contract wont work on sprints 4g network (well LTE network that will be supported) this jump to wimax will be sprints fall. They should have just waited and launched LTE along with att later this year. They are scrambling and it will take more than the evo 3d ti get them out of this huge mess they have gotten themselves into. When you take all this into consideration there is no doubt the thunderbolt is a much better buy than the evo 3d and most will see LTE as more valuable and faster than a dual core processor and gimicky 3d tech.

      It’s as fair as it’s ever going to be. If WiMax, on Sprint/Clearwire, is slow, it just means they neglected to keep pace with growth.

      If any company is going to sell a service, they need to make sure they have the product/service available. If Sprint chooses to keep selling beyond capacity, it’s their own fault for the bad publicity about their 4G service being garbage.

      Hate to tell ya, and this is coming from someone on Sprint, Sprint’s data services sux! My 3G service is averaging 200kb down and my 4G … well, let’s just say, when I can use it, it’s only around 1mb down.

      Sprint should call their 4G service 4G minus 1.

      As for he misconception that LTE will begin to have latency and reduced speeds over time…you COULDN’T be more wrong. LTE is already a fairly old technology in most of Asia (in reference to how fast it changes) there is already companies like huwaei and China mobile hat have upgraded LTE networks identical to that of VZW to nearly 100 mhz yes 100…there will be no 5g anytime in even he distant future LTE is it. One day you will see speeds nearly 5-!0X faster tban VZW current offering on a system very similar to what they use now…don’t believe me? It was proved this.past year in Vegas

LTE is already a fairly old technology in most of Asia (in reference to how fast it changes) there is already companies like huwaei and China mobile hat have upgraded LTE networks identical to that of VZW to nearly 100 mhz yes 100…there will be no 5g anytime in even he distant future LTE is it. One day you will see speeds nearly 5-!0X faster tban VZW current offering on a system very similar to what they use now…don’t believe me? It was proved this.past year in Vegas

    I would say this test is slightly unfair due to the fat there is way more people on Sprints 4G Wimax network at the moment than Verizon’s 4G LTE Network. But obviously LTE would still be faster, but by how much is the question??

    Those are not true number’s. I know for sure. I know Sprint needs to work on the coverage part. Even at it slowest WiMax can churn out 2 Mbps. I have seen as high as 7.79 Mbps. It just depends on where you are at.

          It has no where new the building penetration that LTE has. Your the one with too much love for a carrier that gives two shits about you and only wants your money. Just wait when you have your shiny new evo 3d and sprint switches to LTE and your phone won’t work with the much better “real” 4G. If they cared for you they wouldn’t be in this huge problem they will have. They have partnered with clear who is two steps away from bankruptsy and now is stumbling to stay caught up with the competition. Why do you think they are contesting the tmo and att merger so much they knoe that they will’never compete with industry giants like verizon and now att. You need to get a life your evo what outspeced and outgunned a month after it was released and you spent months trying to get people to agree with you that your phonewas the best by saying things that specs don’t matter now the 3d gets announced and that’s all you do. It isn’t the most important thing in the world to have the best as you won’t have it long. The sooner you realize that sprint doesn’t care about you the better. You sit in here trolling all day saying how verizon (the nations largest network) sucks when i can guarentee you have never used it and then when your network comes up you say well we can roam on Verizon’s network. Go to sprints website they don’t advertise their network as their coverage they advertise Verizon’s. Sprint has been throwing up hail marrys and you praise them for that when you will be the one left out in the cold with a two year contract and an extremely outdated phone that runs on wimax that will no longer be supported by your precious carrier and worse than the yourphone won’t have the real 4G LTE radio to take advantage of their new network. Get a life man you sound desperate.

    PC Mag published an article that showed T-Mobile was actually the 4G king in the US. Of course LTE will beat that *right now* because their LTE network is largely unsaturated. Let’s talk in 6 months to a year when a favorable percentage of their customers have migrated to LTE devices…

        I have to say I agree I read an article that stated that LTE will not get any worse in latency and speed as the market gets satuarated. LTE is capable at this Gen to run near 80 down and 40 up and they throttle and still get 12 up and 5 down. It won’t make a difference like wimax will. Sprint knows it too and is now making the switch to LTE and I have to believe that was their plan all along. Wimax was a desperate attempt. Why would sprint be changing after less than a year of wimax if it was the better tech. This whole article is filled with little butthurt evo and sprint fans. Its pathetic.

          you’ve obviously never ever compared any of Sprint’s plans with similar Verizon plans. numbers dont lie, sprint is cheaper — be it with shittier coverage. sprint does not throttle, sprint does not cap, sprint has unlimited calling to ANY cell/landline, sprint does not ass rape you when you want to return your phone after only 5 days.

            Yeah I did sprint actually doesn’t show its coverage map on their site they show verizons because it roams in verizon network areas. You have to push a button to show the actual network sprint is a joke and so is yarrelray and his BS. Verizon is unlimted 4G with no cap (that’s what unlimted is). Not only that but verizon doesn’t charge a 10 4G premium. The only way sprint is cheaper than verizon is if you need unlimted talk which no one does anymore. Otherwise verixon is comparible, unlimoted, and or cheaper than compatible plans on sprint.

    I have to admit Verizon’s 4G speeds are amazingly fast when they’re working. Plus, that 4G coverage from NY stretches all the way out to Central Jersey, so for me — it’s even better than I thought it was going to be.

    I don’t know if it’s just me but it seems to just “stop” every once in a while. Basically, it’ll lock up for a second or two and I have to hit refresh a couple times for it to come back. It seems to have gotten better in the past week or so and I don’t even think it’s happened in the last couple days, but it’s a little annoying when it does happen.

    I’m not surprised by these test results, but it is cool to see them.

    You do realize how un-scientific this is, right? First of all, no one is disputing LTE being faster than WiMAX. But Sprint doesn’t average sub-1 Mbps speeds. This couldn’t have been in a normal coverage area. Users consistently see much faster speeds than that.

      I have tried sprint was going to have that instead of T-mobile but took the EVO back I was averaging around 2 Mbps seen 6 as the highest their 4G coverage in my area is bad I guess where t-mobiles average was in the 4 Mbps guess I will go to Verizon once this merge happens.

      Have you read any of the posts on this? Many evo fans are disputing that LTE is better than wimax. They wouldn’t see the truth if it smacked them in the face. There is a reason that sprint is scrapping their wimax plans and going LTE.

    In the Portland metro area I was generally seeing 3-4Mbps down and 1 up. Perhaps NY is different, but these numbers seem much lower than my experience.

    Until 4g anything is available in all major markets, then there can be no contests. I have had my Evo since day one and have not seen any 4g in Arizona. And they have deployed towers in my area the last six months. Verizon said it was available but when in their store there was no 4g available just .5 mile down the road from their tower.

      You didn’t read the article at all did you? They tethered wimax and LTE and checked speeds only this was completely non bias everyone knows LTE is by far the better technology even ask sprint cause they obviously think so as well cause they plan to leave all their “fans” behind with phones that wont work on their real 4G network that will be way behind verizon and even att later this year. Sprint is in trouble and they knew it the evo and clears wimax was a hail marry just like the pre was the difference is the evo actually sold well but they are far from out of the red. Verizon is way ahead of the competition in network and especially 4g technology. Sprint will never catch up the only thing they had was “4G” before people realized what real 4G is supposed to be.

Sprint is in trouble and they knew it the evo and clears wimax was a hail marry just like the pre was the difference is the evo actually sold well but they are far from out of the red. Verizon is way ahead of the competition in network and especially 4g technology. Sprint will never catch up the only thing they had was “4G” before people realized what real 4G is supposed to be.

    For #$%& sake did they not take into account that verizon just started releasing their lte.devices and Sprint’s wimax has been chuggin since last Summer? Just give it a few months when more people are using the network, you will see a significant decrease in speed.

    I own an Evo “3g”. Sprints 4g is a joke. All the other providers “always on” 4g service is fast, reliable and useful, its really nice. Having to turn on 4g let alone praying that I even have the 4g service signal is absolutely outrageous. I don’t even bother “turning on” the laughable service… Spring has no real 4g solution to offer for the next couple of years. Sprint is gona lose a lot of customers this year including me.

  • Mateja

    I bought evo 4g the first day that it came out and i am still using it. both wimax and lte coverage is spotty so it all depends where you do you “research”. I wouldn’t be surprised that verizon funded this “research”. In my experience most of the time is about 6-9 mbps download , and 1 mbps upload with sprint’s wimax. I’ve seen it as low as 3-4 mbps (10 % of the time), and as well as high as 10-11.5 mbps (20 % of the time). Of course if you have 0 bars on your 4g indicator you can see ridiculously low speeds like in the test above.
    Anybody can find a spot where one carrier has low coverage, and other one is at its peak, and perform “research” there. That is not a true research. You can measure speeds at that spot a 1 000 000 times in a row, and get same results.
    Where Sprint’s 4g has HUGE advantage over verizon’s lte is in data cap. Sprint offers true unlimited 4g speeds with NO cap. For me that is huge. I use my Evo 4g for tethering, I watch netflix movies over it all the time. With verizon lte they are gonna cap 4g speeds at 5gb, and reduce dramatically (i heard to 500 kbps). So what is the point of having even 100 mbps speeds if they are unusable??? watch 2 netflix movies and you are down to edge speeds! So what am i gonna use LtE for, check facebook on my phone at 20 mpbs? Sent an email at unbelievable speed? 4G speeds are useless on smartphones if you cap them. T mobile does the same thing. Sprint is the only carrier that gives you true unlimited, uncapped 4G speeds at cheapest price. You cant beat that.

        i don’t care whether they are using wimax or lte. i just don’t see any point in 4g speeds if they are capped and/or throttled. plus i don’t appreciate all the misrepresentation that takes place by tmobile and verizon using wording like “unlimited data” … on the top of all that verizon doesn’t even allow you to tether internet for free by using apps like pdanet etc. with sprint you can tether internet at no charge with this apps…

          Actually, if you have the $29.99 data plan from VZW, you do have unlimited data. You don’t even get charged for Data Roaming. I had to use this feature while working at Ft Polk in March. My oldest son is on our plan and he uses about 30 GB of data a month with no cap in speeds. As for tethering, I’ve been using PDANet and Easy Tether for months now without any issues on VZW.

            Incorrect, I’ve was using Verizon for about 3 years before i finally got fed up with throttling. After I would hit about 5 GB of data my speed went from an average of 1 Mbps to a paltry 70-100 Kbps without fail for months and the only way I was able to circumvent that was to break some functionality in my ROM by removing the data throttle governor. To add to this argument, Verizon is supposedly switching to tiered data plans just like AT&T later this year. One of Sprints selling points is the fact that they do not cap your bandwidth and they will even allow you to roam (as long as you don’t roam excessively, in which case the company will notify you). I’ve already used about 7 GB for this billing cycle on Sprint and my speeds on WiMAX are still running at an average of around 5 Mbps at home (where the signal is weak) and 7-9 Mbps at work (where the signal is strong)

          I would love to see when this “capped 4G LTE” plan is. No where has verizon ever said that it will cap its 4G. Get a life sprint is horrible and you are mad that your evo is not even close to the king. I have unlimited 4G from verizon for my thunderbolt and it is 29.99 not 29.99 plus 10 dollars like your evo. I pay less for my plan on verizon then I would on sprint and verizon is 10 times better than sprint. You cry about how these speeds are not fair give me a break if sprint works for you then who cares about some tests you evo fans are worse than iphone fans. All I ever hear is bitching and moaning about how you think your phone is the best. Get an evo 3D that is sure to be a nice phone but your evo has king since been dethroned. You buy a phone and 3 months later a new one is out with much better specs get over it. All I hear is how the thunderbolt is just an evo when that is not even close. Everything about the bolt is better especially in processor speed and ram. The screen is fifty times better, comes with sense 2.0, and best of all LTE is what wimax wishes it was. Your whole post was nothing more whining trying to get everyone to think that your evo is still the best and you use ridiculous logic that isn’t even true. Verizon is offering unlimited 4G on the thunderbolt for 10 dollars less than sprint does and every test shoes LTE as much better than wimac both in speed (upload and download is on average more than 2x faster than wimax) and best of all building penetration. There is a reason sprint will be choosing LTE in the future and abandoning wimax and the only people that will lose out is your sprint customers that buy up these phones that will not work on sprints future LTE network. You guys are all too busy worshiping sprint to realize that you ate getting screwed. Go enjoy your phone it is still a nice phone and better than 60% of the phones out there and stop whining because you don’t have the best as you never will with android for more than a couple months,

Everything about the bolt is better especially in processor speed and ram. The screen is fifty times better, comes with sense 2.0, and best of all LTE is what wimax wishes it was. Your whole post was nothing more whining trying to get everyone to think that your evo is still the best and you use ridiculous logic that isn’t even true. Verizon is offering unlimited 4G on the thunderbolt for 10 dollars less than sprint does and every test shoes LTE as much better than wimac both in speed (upload and download is on average more than 2x faster than wimax) and best of all building penetration. There is a reason sprint will be choosing LTE in the future and abandoning wimax and the only people that will lose out is your sprint customers that buy up these phones that will not work on sprints future LTE network. You guys are all too busy worshiping sprint to realize that you ate getting screwed. Go enjoy your phone it is still a nice phone and better than 60% of the phones out there and stop whining because you don’t have the best as you never will with android for more than a couple months,

          I would love to see when this “capped 4G LTE” plan is. No where has verizon ever said that it will cap its 4G. Get a life sprint is horrible and you are mad that your evo is not even close to the king. I have unlimited 4G from verizon for my thunderbolt and it is 29.99 not 29.99 plus 10 dollars like your evo. I pay less for my plan on verizon then I would on sprint and verizon is 10 times better than sprint. You cry about how these speeds are not fair give me a break if sprint works for you then who cares about some tests you evo fans are worse than iphone fans.

            Uhhh I’m paying 79 a month for my Evo 4g with unlimited everything. And I know your paying at least a hundred plus for your thunderbolt. Sooooo what is that about Sprint costing more? Don’t get me wrong I’m extremely impressed with LTE, but they released the thunderbolt with previous gen specs and to put it bluntly, your an idiot if you bought it. LTE may be what Wimax wishes it was, but the Evo 3d is what the thunderbolt wishes it was. We’re in the age of dual cores and a single core was state of the art about a year ago. Moore’s law is undeniable.

            I’m the idiot because I bought the best phone on the market right now? Last time I checked there was only one dual core phone on the market right now. Yeah that is what we will see this year but honestly until android (icecream?) Is optimized for dual core threads then you won’t see much if any real world usage. I have the Xoom and it is optimized for dual core processor in fact it is built for it and I know I don’t have much to compare it too and it is pushing more pixels it doesn’t run as smooth as the bolt. The evo 3d is a nice phone and I would love to have that chip in the bolt but honestly I would trade the dual core for lte anyday and I am willing to bet a lot of people feel the same way espcially since you won’t see a massiv jump in real life usage. LTE is light years ahead of wimax and it is unlimited (not capped like you sprint whiners like to worship) plus if you haven’t checked sprint charges a 10 dollar premium for data which in my count is unlimited wimax on sprint for 40/month or you can get unlimited LTE on verizon for 30/month. That is what I was saying is cheaper. I have the 450 plan and pay 59.99 get unlimted text, and unlimited data for 89.99 so no I don’t pay anywhere near what you mentioned. I dont need anywhere near unlimited min and most don’t now a days. Sprint is not much cheaper unless you go unlimited everything. I have unlimited text and LTE data and spend 89.99 that’s a get deal plus I am on the 10 dollar off too which makes my plan 79.99 that is no when near 100 plus like you stated you knew I was paying. Do some homeowork before calling someone’stupd for making a purchase. To me it came down to getting the bolt now or waiting for the bionic and I dont want motorola so i got the bolt. I am far from an idiot for purchasing a phone preoackaged with a 32gb card, the worlds only 4.3″ SLCD screen which kills the evo by the way, and is the only phone in america running LTe which as you can see in this article and most places on the web is miles ahead of wimax.

            except for the fact you have only 450 minutes… that’s the exact same price it costs on Verizon for “unlimited” everything… except Verizon customers don’t have to worry about unlimited any mobile… because everyone has Verizon.

            Uhhh I’m paying 79 a month for my Evo 4g with unlimited everything. And I know your paying at least a hundred plus for your thunderbolt. Sooooo what is that about Sprint costing more? Don’t get me wrong I’m extremely impressed with LTE, but they released the thunderbolt with previous gen specs and to put it bluntly, your an idiot if you bought it. LTE may be what Wimax wishes it was, but the Evo 3d is what the thunderbolt wishes it was. We’re in the age of dual cores and a single core was state of the art about a year ago.

            FYI, to compare pricing plans, EVO on Sprint 79.99 with all the goodies. Just checked on verizon to get the features, (regardless of whether u want them or not) 59.99 monthly for 450 mins voice n text. Add 29.99 for data (BTW the corporate plan is 45, which is included in sprint), 2.99 for Visual Voicemail, 9.99 for VZ navigator totals to 102.96/month. even if you drop the last 2, ur still at 89.99 while evo is 79.99 and u get unlimited mobile to mobile. Conclusion: Sprint is less expensive then verizon

            I’m a person that is obsessed with having the best. and I’ll admit that LTE is superior to Wimax in a lot of ways. But I bought my EVO on the first day. And at the time, it was the best android phone on the market and you know that. And to have an android phone that was up to par for 8 months is pretty damn good. But I’m not going to buy a single core phone when Tegra 2 phones are already making it to the market and Tegra 3 Quad Cores have already been announced. As well as the fact that it’s a 480×800 screen when everyone’s making the jump to 640×960 resolution. And lastly the Adreno 205 is nothing compared to the Adreno 220 GPU. If I get a phone I want to be able to say it’s the best for as long as possible. Sure the thunderbolt is a great phone but the specs are just not up to par and it’s going to be looking very dated very quickly.

        Sprint will eventually change to LTE probably within the NEXT 2YEARS meanwhile wimax is what it is.. THIS SO CALLED COMPARISON IS FULL OF LIES I SMELL A VERIZON FAST ONE… WONDER HOW MUCH MONEY BTIG GOT PAID FROM VERIZON??? This matters NONE it means so much for VERIZON to be better than SPRINT but what’s so funny is they are ALMOST 1YEAR LATE WITH EVERYTHING… There LTE service and there 4g devices VERY LATE TO THE PARTY… Question is WHO IS BTIG???? NEVER HEARD OF THEM if this was Cnet or Wall Street Journal then that would be CREDIBLE.. This means NOTHING TO NOBODY EVERY EVO 4G OWNER KNOWS THIS IS A TOTAL LIE SO WE MOVE FORWARD. What they need to be talking about is ALL THE PROBLEMS WITH THERE PRECIOUS THUNDERDUD and how VERIZON KEEPS OVERCHARGING FOR EVERYTHING… 300$ for a Droid Charge give me A BREAK.. People on verzion can keep there useless Thunderdud on there useless CAPPED NETWORK.. On Sprint we know what we have on the best UNCAPPED NETWORK IN THE USA… Let them keep that crappy thunderdud it DEFINITELY ISN’T NO EVO 4G OR NO EVO 3D

          How is their LTE late when they have LTE deployed and sprint does? Oh wait thats right sprint is on wimax and will take years to go to LTE so they are behind verizon. You are an idiot. The sad thing is the EVO 3d when launched will be like the 5th best phone compared to LG and Samsung offerings.

The sad thing is the EVO 3d when launched will be like the 5th best phone compared to LG and Samsung offerings. But you wont admit that because you wont admit you are wrong and only say what you do because ypu have nothing better to do than praise sprint and make stupid videos while you are working. smh

            The EVO 3D out benchmarks the all Tegra 2 devices on the market with a 1.2Ghz dual core qualcomm chipset and an adreno 220 GPU. By FAR the best specced cell phone announced yet. So can you name those four phones that are supposedly better than the EVO 3D?

            It will be outspeced by the end of summer the main reason it benches more than tegra is because it is clocked higher but still in real’life usage I wouldbe really surprised if it way outperformed the single core bolt and inspire as andoid is not optimized for dual core threads yet. You sprint fans make no sense you sit and say that LTE is not all that much better than wimax especially cause sprint is cheaper (which isn’t the case) and then think that dual core is going to be a huge step up from single core when android and most apps womt be coded to take advantage of dual core for another year or so (hopefully icecream). I am willing to bet most are more willing to trade the dual core in the 3d for Verizon’s much better network coverage and much better 4g with actual building penetration and much better ping times.

          Once again you blindless old bat you show me where verizon is capped. That’s right it isnt. Get over it sprint acted out of desoeratiin as they knew it would take years to get their 4G plans off the ground. What they offer is from clear not sprint. All of these “4G” phones on sprint WONT WORK ON SPRINTS FUTURE LTE NETWORK! Now if wimax was really better than LTE and verizon is “paying companies for these testts” like you claim then why is sprint switching to LTE abandoning all their loyal customers in the process? You just like your boyfriend up above make no sense at all. LTE is by far the better technology and you call verizon late? I would say they are early they didnt make a move out of desperation like sprint. WIMAX IS NOT EVEN SPRINTS NETWORK IT IS CLEAR’S like I said above you evo owners are worse that iphone fans and refuse to see the truth when it hits you in the face. Get over it its just a phone and we all should be rooting for android phones in general cause lets face it we are way behind apple in developer support and need great phones like the thunderbolt. YOUR EVO WAS YESTERDAYS NEWS MONTHS AGO. Your mindless dribble that you post everyday about verizon makes me laugh get a life you make no sense. AND ONE MORE TIME SO YOU KNOW VERIZON IS OFFERING UNLIMITED 4G FOR 29.99 NOT CAPPED THEY HAVE NEVER SAID THAT IT WOULD BE CAPPED THAT WAS ALL SPECUATION. YOU NEED TO PULL OUT YOUR BILL CAUSE YOUR WORTHLESS WIMAX COSTS YOU 29.99 PLUS A 10.00 PREMIUM AND THAT MY FRIEND IS MORE THAN VERIXON FOR THE SAME UNLIMITED USAGE. pick up a laptop or any other internet connected device and look into some thing before you post cause unlimited 4G on verizon is all they have ever offered since LTE launched on phones and no where has said that will change anytime soon.

            Uhhh…..We don’t pay an extra thirty for data plans, it’s all included. The 69.99 includes unlimited data and text messages. So how much extra do you pay for your text message and data packages?

          • angermeans

            I just told you I pay 59.99 for 450 min and unl text msgs then i pay 29.99 for unlimited 3G/4g plus I get a $10 smartphines talk free promo that is no longer offered that means all in all I pay 79.99 plus tax for unl text, 3G/4G, and 450 anytime min. That would mean I pay 10 more for a much better network with much better coverage and a 4G network miles ahead of what sprint will ever have. This whole sprint is cheaper crap you evo fans keeping bitching about is a non factor if you dont need unlimited talk like 90 % of people don’t need.

THIS SO CALLED COMPARISON IS FULL OF LIES I SMELL A VERIZON FAST ONE… WONDER HOW MUCH MONEY BTIG GOT PAID FROM VERIZON??? This matters NONE it means so much for VERIZON to be better than SPRINT but what’s so funny is they are ALMOST 1YEAR LATE WITH EVERYTHING… There LTE service and there 4g devices VERY LATE TO THE PARTY… Question is WHO IS BTIG???? NEVER HEARD OF THEM if this was Cnet or Wall Street Journal then that would be CREDIBLE.. This means NOTHING TO NOBODY EVERY EVO 4G OWNER KNOWS THIS IS A TOTAL LIE SO WE MOVE FORWARD. What they need to be talking about is ALL THE PROBLEMS WITH THERE PRECIOUS THUNDERDUD and how VERIZON KEEPS OVERCHARGING FOR EVERYTHING… 300$ for a Droid Charge give me A BREAK.. People on verzion can keep there useless Thunderdud on there useless CAPPED NETWORK.. On Sprint we know what we have on the best UNCAPPED NETWORK IN THE USA… Let them keep that crappy thunderdud it DEFINITELY ISN’T NO EVO 4G OR NO EVO 3D

    I just went to verizon web site and chated with one of their sales people. I have fun doing that, because most of the time they don’t know what they are talking about. Very often they misinform you, so you would just sign up with them. I was asking about verizon 4g caps, and here is the what response i got:

    Please hold for a Verizon Wireless sales representative to assist you with your order. Thank you for your patience.
    You are now chatting with ‘Shanderika’
    You: hello
    You: are you there
    Shanderika: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    You: yeah i am considering buying htc thunderbolt 4g
    Shanderika: I will be happy to assist you with the Thunderbolt.
    You: it says that the data package is unlimited. is that right?
    Shanderika: Yes that is correct the data package has to be unlimited.
    You: is that for 4g speeds
    You: ?
    Shanderika: Yes it is with 4G speeds.
    You: is there any cap to 4g speeds
    Shanderika: No we do not cap our customers usage.
    You: i know that you don’t cap, but in a contract it says this:
    You: Verizon Wireless strives to provide customers the best experience when using our network, a shared resource among tens of millions of customers. To help achieve this, if you use an extraordinary amount of data and fall within the top 5% of Verizon Wireless data users we may reduce your data throughput speeds periodically for the remainder of your then current and immediately following billing cycle to ensure high quality network performance for other users at locations and times of peak demand. Our proactive management of the Verizon Wireless network is designed to ensure that the remaining 95% of data customers aren’t negatively affected by the inordinate data consumption of just a few users.
    You: so you do cap 4g speeds, right
    You: ?
    Shanderika: One moment.
    You: are you still there?
    Shanderika: Yes I am here. I am checking on that for you,
    Shanderika: Can you tell me where you got that information?
    You: from your web site
    Shanderika: Okay. I am trying to get some information regarding that so that I will not tell you one thing and something else happens.
    You: its says it in customer agreement under additional disclousures
    Shanderika: Okay.
    You: why is taking you so long? this is very important information about date contract
    Shanderika: Well according to the wording there it would appear that we have started to cap usage to some degree.
    Shanderika: It would appear with the 4g implementation that this may indeed be the case. I certainly cannot argue what we have on the website.
    You: to which degree? i need to know that before signing a contract with you
    You: do you cap it after 1 gb, 5 gb, 100 gb?
    You: it makes a big difference when you start caping 4g speeds?
    Shanderika: I do understand. What you will have to do is contact customer care to get more information on Capping Data. Would you like there number?
    You: can’t you tell me that?
    Shanderika: Honestly I do not have enough information regarding it. That is the reason I am referring you to them so that I will not give you inaccurate information

    Shanderika: Well according to the wording there it would appear that we have started to cap usage to some degree.
    Shanderika: It would appear with the 4g implementation that this may indeed be the case. I certainly cannot argue what we have on the website.
    You: to which degree? i need to know that before signing a contract with you
    You: do you cap it after 1 gb, 5 gb, 100 gb?
    You: it makes a big difference when you start caping 4g speeds?
    Shanderika: I do understand. What you will have to do is contact customer care to get more information on Capping Data. Would you like there number?
    You: can’t you tell me that?
    Shanderika: Honestly I do not have enough information regarding it. That is the reason I am referring you to them so that I will not give you inaccurate information

    I just went to verizon web site and chated with one of their sales people. I have fun doing that, because most of the time they don’t know what they are talking about. Very often they misinform you, so you would just sign up with them. I was asking about verizon 4g caps, and here is the what response i got:

    Please hold for a Verizon Wireless sales representative to assist you with your order. Thank you for your patience.
    You are now chatting with ‘Shanderika’
    You: hello
    You: are you there
    Shanderika: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    You: yeah i am considering buying htc thunderbolt 4g
    Shanderika: I will be happy to assist you with the Thunderbolt.
    You: it says that the data package is unlimited. is that right?
    Shanderika: Yes that is correct the data package has to be unlimited.
    You: is that for 4g speeds
    You: ?
    Shanderika: Yes it is with 4G speeds.
    You: is there any cap to 4g speeds
    Shanderika: No we do not cap our customers usage.
    You: i know that you don’t cap, but in a contract it says this:
    You: Verizon Wireless strives to provide customers the best experience when using our network, a shared resource among tens of millions of customers. To help achieve this, if you use an extraordinary amount of data and fall within the top 5% of Verizon Wireless data users we may reduce your data throughput speeds periodically for the remainder of your then current and immediately following billing cycle to ensure high quality network performance for other users at locations and times of peak demand. Our proactive management of the Verizon Wireless network is designed to ensure that the remaining 95% of data customers aren’t negatively affected by the inordinate data consumption of just a few users.
    You: so you do cap 4g speeds, right
    You: ?
    Shanderika: One moment.
    You: are you still there?
    Shanderika: Yes I am here. I am checking on that for you,
    Shanderika: Can you tell me where you got that information?
    You: from your web site
    Shanderika: Okay. I am trying to get some information regarding that so that I will not tell you one thing and something else happens.
    You: its says it in customer agreement under additional disclousures
    Shanderika: Okay.
    You: why is taking you so long? this is very important information about date contract
    Shanderika: Well according to the wording there it would appear that we have started to cap usage to some degree.
    Shanderika: It would appear with the 4g implementation that this may indeed be the case. I certainly cannot argue what we have on the website.

        i don’t see it that way. i really think that she learned something, so she can be of better assistance. it is very important to know that you are giving proper info to people who are signing up for 2 year contracts. Verizon is very deceiving with the whole “unlimited data” thing, and most of the people believe it. People rarely read fine print…

          Did you get burned by Verizon at some point? Did you have a horrible customer service experience or something? You come here and run your mouth constantly and frankly it makes me want to reach through the monitor and clock you upside the head. I’ve been with Verizon for 7 years. We have been treated great and CS has always taken care of us whenever we’ve needed it. If you don’t like them, FINE, say “I don’t like Verizon, I had a bad experience with them.” If you have had no experience with them, you’re just blowing hot air and fanboyism.

    Wasn’t this already covered at CES? They compared all of the 4G that’s were available at that time with tmobile beating out sprint too. A buddy at work has an evo and even says his extra 10 a month for 4G is a wasted bs expense. I can’t talk though being an atrix owner with my awesome crippled 4G…

      Those number are not accurate, which is why your 3g is closer to those speeds. Bad/rigged information.

    I could care less, I live a little over an hour from NYC and Philadelphia, VZW nor Sprint offer 4g service. I do much better with both AT&T and TMO. I can understand VZW, they just went live a few months back, but Sprint? Its been years, they’re more apt to toss Wimax in like North Fecesville, Arkansas then fill in large metro areas.

    ha what the hell, is this an april fools joke?? Where the f**k were they performing these tests? I consistently get 6-8Mbps download speeds in my Atlanta suburb. Lowest I have ever seen is 3ish, maybe in the 2s on rare occasions. I will admit though, that if this is true, it shows how unreliable some areas are. I was just in Orlando this past March staying on International Drive, and I could not get above 1.5Mbps for download speeds.

      TMobile is far from king they are running hspa+ which once saturated will be just like 3g LTE is the much better tech you just have read into marketing too much. Don’t you think if it was thebetter option then verizon, att, and now sprint would have spent much less money and just updated their 3g markets. Theoretically right now 3g is at its max and LTE is at ots lowest so it might be compatible now bit once the market is saturated and LTE gets its upgrades in the next few years there is absolutely no comparison. Tmo’s ceiling is Verizon’s floor when it comes to 4G. People need to realize that. Tmo can’t afford to get LTE that is the only reason they don’t and the only reason they went up for sale cause they can’t come close to competing with the big boys they can’t even compete with sprint.

    They are testing in ny. So your speeds in dallas or la are irrelevant. Good job at being retarded.

    Yeah um what rock have you been living under i have had 2.2 on my galaxy s for 2 months now plus since i am on sprint my epic gets 4g unlike your shitty one on verizon.

    I just did the same test here in Kaysville, UT. ( I know, I know, Where is Kaysville, Ut?)

    Anyhow, here are my results

    EVO 4G averaged 6.2 mbps
    Thunderbolt averaged 0.0 mbps.

    DISCLAIMER: There is no LTE in Kaysville, UT which is exactly my point. It all matters on where you do your test. If the 4G service sucks or is non-existent then you are going to get horrible speeds

    Just for fun I checked my Epic 4g in my apartment in Chicago. 1 bar of signal (4g signal) and i got 4.2 Mbps down, 1.4 Mbps up. Judging by the other comments, nobody gets the speeds from the article on Sprint. And crap like this just spreads too much false information, judging by the other comments by people that don’t have a Sprint 4G phone. And are people really going to flame about carriers now? Sprint is quite cheaper, but Verizon tends to have more solid coverage OUTSIDE of major cities, but you pay a premium for that.

    So let’s test one network and generalize the results to compare the efficiency of 2 nationwide technologies. That makes sense…

  • SIGINT

    Your mileage will vary depending on where you live. In some markets sprint will be faster, and in other markets Verizon will be faster. There is no right answer. If a carrier doesn’t work for you in your area, find one that does. Just don’t whine like a little bitch.

    There is no way those speeds for the EVO on WiMax can be right. I regularly get those speeds just using 3G. In fact, right now I ran a speed test with my laptop tethered to my EVO on the 3G network and got a download speed of 1.49mbps.

    http://www.speedtest.net/result/1232327212.png (EVO on 3G)

    When using WiMax, I regularly get 4-7mbps down. Now I’m not disputing that LTE is faster, just that the WiMax tests don’t seem to match up with reality.

    6.03mbps down just now with EVO on 4G tethered to my laptop.

    @Dave T mobile shove it where? On my G1 in Tacoma Washington i just got a speed test of 3.04Mb/sec down and .29Mb/sec up. My Brother just got 10Mb/sec down and 3Mb/sec up on his MT4G. That still seems pretty good. One of my co workers has an Evo 4G and averages 4 down and 1 up in Tacoma Wa as well

  • Dave

    @Nathan- The article discusses that the two fastest are Verizon then Sprint. I find it funny when EVERY carrier claims they’re the best at “something” via commercials when the tests actually prove otherwise. Basically I’m pointing out that T-Mobile is falsely advertising.

    I have no idea how they do this test. On my EVO, I get and average of 6 to 7mb down, with my fastest test having been 12mb down.
    I have screenshots to backup this claim.

    All this shows is how unreliable and spotty Sprint’s 4G WiMax is. Sometimes at my house I get 4G and download speeds of about 3-6mpbs. Other times there is no 4G and speeds are .5-1.5 mpbs, which the test shows.

    So in other words, Verizon’s LTE looks a lot better and I wouldnt mind Sprint switching to LightSquared and using a better technology.

    So in other words, Verizon’s LTE looks a lot better and I wouldnt mind Sprint switching to LightSquared and using a better technology.

    @Dave I am aware of who the test is between. I am more pointing out your love for CDMA. Its old technology for new phones. I am not trying to back up GSM either but just saying that on my 3g G1 i am getting better speeds than an Evo 4G in my area.

    No one is arguing that the LTE network of verizon isn’t superior. It is faster and thus better. Verizon also has the bigger network, as they are the bigger company with more money to buy the government bandwidth sales. At any rate, in regards to hardware of phones, which is what determines what network people will end up on, verizon is behind the times hardcore. The HTC EVO 4g was released 10months ago. The recently new Thunderbolt is a sorry attempt @ verizon to play the catch up game, not to give their customers newer technology. Sprint innovates, verizon catches up a year later. Spec wise, the thunderbolt has 768MBs of ram, compared to the evo’s 512, and 8gigs of internal memory, compared to the evo’s 1 gig. Other then that the device is completely the same. Except Sprint had it out 10months ago. Sorry excuse for a catchup game. It is old technology to be released in febuary of 2011 is just a joke. Dual cores are coming followed by quadcores, and as always sprint is leading the way, as no phone touches the new evo3d. So if you like getting buttfucked by verizons usual shenanigans, along with terrible hardware, but prefer to have that extra LTE speed, go verizon. If you enjoy a company who isn’t a corporate giant that doesn’t buttfuck you everywhich way, and has the better hardware consistantly, you go sprint. + Sprint doesn’t cap, where as verizon does. To any of the verizon retards that say it isn’t capped you are just that, a retard. They throttle your speed to poop after you have reached a certain point. Thats a cap, believe it or not. You are capping your full potential. Because verizon is a big corporate giant that surprises buttsecks.

      The thunderbolt has the much better processor, sense 2.0, better hardware, slcd, better camera, and even better kickstand. The thunderbolt is a muvh better phone than the evo especially since it runs lte. Its funny how you sprint fans only tell part of the truth. The thunderbolt is a bigger jump from the evo than the evo 3d is from the thunderbolt. The evo was no better than the incredible especially when you take in the fact that the incredible ran on a much better network. You are very wrong if you think that people chase phones rather than the network. If that was the case and verizon is so far behind in phones then why are they the number one network? I woukd like to see the sales of the evo vs droid x as I am willing to bet that more droid x was sold than evobecause it ran on the much better network. The evo was the last phones sold during that generation with the much slower first Gen snapdrshon. Every phone that came out shortly after the evo had much better processors and light years better gpus. The evo was a good phone but was not as great as you sprint fans think. Verizon has launched better android phones than sprint every month while sprint has launched the evo and epic in a year and you say verizon is playing catch up? I doubt it.

    So in reality, Sprint is only 10 bucks cheaper than Verizon. 10 dollar saving, EVO 4G or any current 4G Wimax phone being obsolete in the very near future < faster, more reliable, better coverage.

    Yes sprint has more free feature than VZW but not many will use it. I definitely don't think about those free features as my Thunderbolt already provides all that via apps.

    Data on both sprint and vzw are NOT CAPPED. You only get throttled if you're part of the 5% of the heavy data users on VZW, which is not any of us here … so this cap and throttle issue is a non issue.

    VZW win. Simple as that.

    Side note: some time ago Sprint had a price comparison with Verizon on the home page about Sprint costing 69.99 plan is cheaper than Verizon's 89.99 plan. But Sprint failed to state the comparison was between sprint's 450min talk + text plan and Verizon's unlimited talk+text plan. Talking about lies …… Sprint epic fail.

      Thanks for doig that as sprimt fans refuse to recognize that they aren’t that much cheaper 10 dollars for me is well worth the much better service and worlds ahead 4G. Its pretty funny that all these sprint fanbo are calling foul and saying well we are cheaper and then you show they aren’t and no one comments. They praise a company that will leave them in the cold once their brand new LTE netwrik roles out with phones that are stuck on the obsolete wimax netwrok. Believe me people will be upset once they realize they are being shafted. It is irresponsible of sprint to release all these fake 4G phones and tabletes (evo 3d, nexus s 4g, Xoom wimax, etc) and not tell their customers that they plan on ditching wimax in favor of LTE and their phones which came with two year contracts won’t work with LTE as they don’t have the hardware to do so. Now you tell me when looking at that which is the better buy? The thunderbolt (or droid bionic) which is out now (or by the time the 3d is out) or waiting for a phone that will be phased out in favor of a better network months after release? Not to mention I (and more than likely others) would happily trade a dual core processor for Verizon’s much better LTE (unlimited for 29.99) network. I am willing to bet most would trade the lower Res higher contract slcd screen for the little higher Res (and more than likely pentile matrix) qhd screen. I would much rather have a 32gb card than 3d as well. The thunderbolt is the much better buy all around and I am willing to bet real life usage will be very compatible as android isn’t optimized (yet) for dual cores. The evo 3d is sprints last effort to capitalize on wimax before going to the much better LTE network. It will come back to bite them in the ass hard. Network fragmentation and sprint is the only company dumb enough and desperate enough to get them in the situation they are in. What kills me is they have people worshiping them for it.

        Yeah these Sprint fan boys are worse than the Apple fanbois.

        Like I said many times before ….

        Great phone on a shitty network = shitty phone ( EVO on Sprint)
        Great phone on a great network = best phone, to quote jerremy Carson from top gears, “in the wooorrrlld” ( thunderbolt on VZW )

    had Sprint in rollout WiMax city (Charlotte) never saw above 3mbs (or whatever MbpS), now with Thunderbolt&LTE i average 12Down and about 5Up.

    for me, LTE>WiMax.

    this is exactly the reason i switched to Verizon.

  • Xamot722

    Wow. These comments are amazing. Angermeans, you need to get a life.

    The Verizon LTE I’ve tested in Nashville is faster than Sprint 4G, but it’s all pretty blazing fast. My point for commenting is that the poll is irrelevant except for in NYC, which is terrible for Sprint coverage. I’ve used 4G on my EVO in Nashville, Portland, Houston, and couple others – and New York. It was so bad in NYC that I was looking for wifi spots. I mean, it sucked! I love the EVO, but I would ditch Sprint if I lived in “the” city. So – while I think the LTE technology is faster, the poll is useless for anything other than a single locality. Repeat it across the country and then publish something.

    And damn! All you guys bitching about who’s got the baddest phone sound like little bitches. Who the hell cares?
