N4UPD: If i'm not mistaken if you have an unlimited plan on your smartphone you can swap the sim to the Lg VL600 and use your unlimited plan on that or any Verizon 4g device per FCC Rules on the 700mhz 4g lte band. Check into it.
pcwleung: It's Mega bits per second (Mbps) not Mega Bytes per second (MBps).
Rickster480: im sorry but this seems useless...why pay $80 for 10gb of 11Mbs when you can pay $20 and get 100Mbs and unlimited use...sorry but comcast is better
point6000x: Megabits not megabytes!!!
CamaroWarrior: on my thunderbolt i got 40Mbps down and up i got 7Mbps with the speed test app.
algierssolja: Megabytes is data size....megabits per second refers to bandwidth "speed".
@Ifeeplhat wimax and lte are the only 4g technologies hspa+ is an upgraded 3g network. 4g networks are MANs 3g networks are WANs. HSPA+ is a fast wan.
Shaik Mozam: he looks like a peek.
GoodFightSir: wow i live in indonesia...... i get 2mbps....... its terrible....
Nicholas Roeder: Bits not bytes.
Struggle: what do you mean 5gigs? can you get unlimited access to it?
Miike Hunt: @Ifeelphat
Technically, LTE and WiMax according to the ITU, are 3G technologies (3.9G) to be exact, HSPA+ is 3.75G.
Miike Hunt: It's not 4G, it's 3G.
You Americans are retarded, you even have T-Mobile labelling HSPA+ as 4G...
entouchgraphics: @xXMaxEvansXx That is correct, IMT Standards states that 4G must be able to transmit at 100Mbit/s While Moving and 1Gbit/s While standing still.
entouchgraphics: @daisylovesmoy Thunderbolt is a Direct Connection Protocol Similar to that of USB... What he is testing is the speed of the internet provided by a USB Device by Verizon.
In NO way is Thunderbolt and LTE comparable, they do completely different things
entouchgraphics: @MrDamirD LTE is a wireless protocol, this device is using the LTE (Long Term Evolution) Protocol.
International Mobile Telecommunications Advanced Standard for 4G is 100Mbit/s while moving and 1Gbit/s while not moving.
Now, while LTE as a Protocol may have the ability to exceed the 4G standard (100Mbit/s - 1Gbit/s) the Network Provider, In this case Verizon, must also have the APN's, Servers, Hard Lines, Fiber Connections and Main Infistructor to Supply that Network Speed to the LTE Towers :)
entouchgraphics: @MrDamirD It is NOT HSPA!!!! It is using LTE!!!! Again, not 4G by definition. But not HSPA either
Innsomnimaniac: @Worfox1 I see you removed your comment. Maybe because you're wrong. The IMT Advanced requirements for 4G is 1Gbit, not 100Mbit. LTE only goes up to 150Mbit. But for 4G, it requires 1Gbps.. which is a hell of a lot faster. Of course, real world speeds will vary depending on the distance from the tower and the network stability. But, still. I have done the research, I know what is and is not 4G. And what is out now is not.
Innsomnimaniac: @Worfox1 Now that we've learned LTE isn't 4G, what is 4G then? Well, LTE is the first release. LTE Advanced, which has yet to be deployed, but DOES meet IMT Advanced requirements for the 4G standard, is the actual candidate for the 4G standard. LTE Advanced and WirelessMan Advanced both are. WirelessMan Advanced is Sprint's 4G for WiMax, which is marketed as 4G, just like LTE, misguidedly.
