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.

    • Rolling out a new beta release now with some minor adjustments and additional logging. Please log out of the app (or remove your session(s) from the website if the app is not providing the log out option) and try to log in again. If you experience an issue, please submit a diagnostic report immediately after your attempt. Logs only capture a limited amount of information, and sometimes a delay causes the useful information to already be overwritten. I also sent an e-mail to the beta crew offering a faster way to receive beta updates, please let me know if you have any questions.
    • what differences? My son is thinking of going from the 21 ultra to the pixel pro... Yea, nay??
    • I just hope it doesnt make me reset my PW to log in every 5th time.. Sprints side has been wonky for a while. The 1 year I went to Tmo, I did like their online stuff 3-1 vs sprint Having a biz account might be making it troublesome, but I don't know why, everything in there is pretty straight forward. I heard it "might" be the financing issues on the sprint side.  I do know if I want to upgrade any of the lines, it still has to go through sprint, if I try on the Tmo side itll force me to pay off the few I have, vs it just bringing them over.
    • Just switched to the S22 Ultra from the Pixel 7 Pro. Love this beast!!
