Fastest Speeds Ever Seen on WiMax

I for one have recieved speeds of 16mbps by my home. Robert explained it as the tower that I was connected to probably had few people on it along with AAV backhaul. That was the highest ever. Before I got my new EVO though, on average I would get anywhere from 10 to 13 Mbps.

I pulled 12megs down at LaGuardia aiport about 2 years ago using my og evo at the time and right before I sold my evo 3d I pulled 12megs down right here in atlanta. For the most part though my experience with wimax was pretty decent. I averaged about 6 to 10 megs where ever I actually got a signal.

When I could find a signal in RI about 6-10 was the norm depending on time of day.

 

When I'm down in Hollywood FL the average is 3-4Mbps at the condo which isn't bad considering I get a decent signal inside the unit and it's one of those older 12" thick cement type structures.

I have seen 17 Mbps in Austin, via a home modem set up in a car on a tower that pretty much only served a section of 360. With perfect signal.

 

Normal speeds are half to two-thirds of that, but it's fun seeing WiMAX go faster than CricKet LTE.

No, the max speed limit here is 75 mph. Any higher would be unauthorized speeding, a violation of the Ts and Cs.

He didn't necessarily reach that speed in a car.

 

I know they took a Nexus S into space. Was it the 4g? dun dun dun.........

This would be a great article.

Signal Propagation: WiMAX vs. the wet-paper bag(pt. 1) :tu:

From my experience increasing wetness increases penetration.

When wimax was first released, I signed up for clear with an at home wimax modem. I had probably the best signal possible (-30dbm or so, if I recall correctly).

 

I tested the max stream (multiple connections) at 16mbit in Boston. I never saw anything higher.

 

Some people reported higher speeds elsewhere...

Whats AAV backhaul and how will i know if my area has clear AAV backhaul

Alternative access vendors (AAVs) such as cable MSOs, CLECs, pure-play backhaul providers and even utilities.

 

...or, as I like to think of it, AAV is (in my best Transylvanian accent) "Almost Anybody Vut" the Baby Bells.

Luckily I get a great WiMax signal at home even though my area is just a WiMax protection site. Even indoors I pull about 8-10 mbps which is great for a backup Internet source if my Comcast goes out like it frequently does.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
