    I wanted to check and see if anyone else has any inconsistent speeds on LTE in other parts of the country. I live in the Detroit area. Most mornings, I get upwards of 40 Mbps download...in the evening, I get as low as 1 Mbps. Upload is consistently around 4 Mbps. Any ideas? Could it be network load? Just a bit frustrating.

    Absolutely. I did five LTE speedtests in Vegas yesterday. The range was 1.5 to 48 Mbps. This was in the afternoon within a 30 minute period.

    WOW. Glad to know it's not just me. But then again...wish it was more consistent! :)

    Wow...my home WiFi connection sucks. However it's fast enough for surfing message boards... and then some. :D

    I don't have the screen shots but LTE does fluctuate a lot. One I have got 53 down... :eek:

    Nice catch! Didn't notice that. Dearborn is a bit closer than Lansing...

    When I tap on About on the Speedtest app, I get this notice. Could this have anything to do with it?
