HTC Thunderbolt speedtest pushes the limits of Verizon’s LTE 4G network
No matter which way you looks at it, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint’s 4G networks simply don’t compare to the speed offered by Verizon;s LTE 4G network. We got our first taste of LTE while at CES last month and tweeted that the HTC Thunderbolt was able to download data at speeds of over 25 Mbps. Now, a little more than a month later, we’ve received our first in-the-wild reports of some pretty amazing speeds from the HTC Thunderbolt. The image below clearly shows that LTE is the new champion on the 4G battle front. T-Mobile’s HSPA+ and Sprint’s Wi-Max networks are still fast, but they certainly can not compete with 34 Mbps download and 37 Mbps upload speeds on Verizon’s LTE network. The 4G wars may just be heating up, but it looks like Verizon has taken an early lead over its competition. We’re just glad that HTC phones ave been the first devices on all four major U.S. networks to bring 4G to the masses.
Thanks to D. for the image.
