Tuscaloosa Speed Test

Don't you wish you lived in Tuscaloosa?   Tonight's AT&T LTE4G speed test.   Notice the upload speed is greater than the download and both are slower than my old acoustic couple! Why would anyone pay for this if they had a choice.

I can't get Verizon at the Cottage or I would be gone.

I'll run a second test as soon as I post this one.

Sir,
1) Not to insult your intelligence, but you do have your phone's wi-fi turned OFF? (so you're actually measuring the connection you think you're measuring)
2) Does your phone indicate an LTE connection? If so, how many bars? (just curious)
3) I know nothing about the speed test app you're using... try a real one like http://goo.gl/gnbxz and let's compare results.
4)Since you showed me yours, I'll show you mine (LTE,4 bars in Pelham, AL, just a few minutes ago): http://goo.gl/RnoyXL
5) BTW, speed test results with same phone/same app/same night... but using wi-fi (at&t's supposedly 6 Mbps DSL): http://goo.gl/0IOdjJ
6)I can't explain the discrepancy, but speed test results using antique PC/Win XP looks more like one would expect with DSL: http://goo.gl/u4Gv2h

73/Gud luck in the contest,
