Verizon 4G LTE ‘blows away’ Sprint’s WiMAX in 1,000 speed tests
Verizon 4G LTE ‘blows away’ Sprint’s WiMAX in 1,000 speed tests | BGR
Sprint is no longer the “4G king,” BTIG Research analyst Walter Piecyk proclaimed on Friday following a massive speed test that pitted Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G against Verizon Wireless’ HTC ThunderBolt. Piecyk and his team conducted more than 1,000 speed tests in New York City to determine which was faster: the ThunderBolt, running on Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network, or the EVO 4G, running on Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network.

I agree LTE is by far the better choice. But it also kind of seems that those tests must have been in terrible locations or something. An average speed of 1.17 down? That's 3G speeds & in some cases less than 3G speeds, horrible.
Can't wait for LTE, It will be in the city just down the road from me by the end of this year, probably take a little longer to reach me though.
