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.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
