Poor / Jumpy Upload Speeds on EVO 4G LTE


Recommended Posts

I have had this phone for about 2 weeks now, and I've noticed the upload speeds using Speed Test have been very jumpy. I am wondering if this is your experience as well, and if so have you been able to fix it?


The Upload speed test results don't update continuously like the download speeds do (maybe once a second), which results in a jumpy histogram.


I have noticed this issue on both WiFi and Cellular data. I am unsure if this issue is only a problem with the test app or if it is indeed indicating a problem with the radio of the phone. Here's a screenshot showing what I mean.


Any ideas?

Yes, it's still an available option, I have it set to smooth graphics. The download graphics are smooth; the upload ones aren't. I'm unsure if this is showing a latency issue, a radio issue, or just a testing issue with this app.


I don't really notice any slowdowns, especially while using WiFi, and this "issue" (if it even is one) appears everywhere; I've tried it in a few towns here in NC, both on 3G and WiFi.

I think it's the app, I see it too with my EVO. But I don't have any problems with uploads jumping or stalling like it appears to when testing. I would suggested a different app. I use Cell Phone Coverage Map by Rootmetrics to verify anything the speedtest.net app shows.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
