    I managed to achieve 100 Mbps on three different tests.

    Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE running CM10

    I included a screenshot in my GS4 review:

    96.25Mbps though I've seen it go higher then that.

    Great Sales Pitch Born Salesman. Tell them about calls going to voice mail. One step forward and two back in Technology.



    Considering few other posted Home Ip speeds I ran a test. Hows That for a Free Up to 28Mbps/1000Kps Unlimited non Rogers cable connection.
    Powering up Fido Razr now 46.73Mbps D 26.75Mbps 73ms Ping using Oakville server Opps! There goes my Data plan for the month! Powering down Fido

    Telus server always gives me worst speeds even sitting by the lake base of Yonge street.

    Hi!

    I thought we can get 100 mbps only on 2600Mhz spectrum.
    And my understanding is that Galaxy S2 LTE does not have 2600Mhz.

    Am I right?

    That is correct. The speed tests in which Howard and I got 100 Mbps were made on a Galaxy S4 forced onto 2600 MHz.

    Finally, yesterday, I switched from Bell to Rogers and I bought the Samsung Galaxy S4.

    Now, I get between 75 mbps and 100 mbps in Lévis near Québec town.

    Wow!!!!

    Merci beaucoup for your very interesting information.

    Hi!

    As you wrote, it is possible to "force" Galaxy S4 onto 2600 MHz.

    Is it a parameter to set?
    What is this parameter?

    Thanks a lot!

    As I noted in my review for the S4:

    To force the S4 onto Band 7 you start the dialer and type *#2263#. This displays the ServiceMode menu, from which you touch on option 4 (LTE Band Preference). From the resulting menu you select option 5 (LTE B7). Now, as long as you have Band 7 where you are, the phone will lock (and stayed locked) on a 2600 MHz LTE signal.

    However, please note that while in this mode you are on LTE only, thus you cannot make or receive phone calls, though everything else will work fine including text messaging. To return to standard mode, follow the above instructions, but instead of choosing LTE Band Preference, just choose option 1 (automatic).

    Wow! Very interesting!
    I tried it and it works very well.

    I've just read your review for the S4.
    It is a very interesting review.

    I switched from Bell to Rogers because LTE coverage of 2600 MHZ for Bell is only in Ontario for now.
    LTE coverage of 2600 MHZ for Rogers is almost everywhere it has LTE coverage.

    I'm in Lévis Québec and only Rogers has LTE coverage of 2600 MHz.

    Now, with my Galaxy S4, I get between 75 mbps and 100 mbps.
    Quite often, I do not have to force it onto 2600 MHz.
    I'm 2 KM from Rogers tower.

    Merci beaucoup for your great help.
    I appreciate a lot.

    Hi!

    In the previous message, distance to Rogers tower was 2 KM.

    In this actual message, distance to Rogers tower is 30 meters.

    Très impressionnant!

    Have a nice day!

    Thumbs up Rogers LTE Max Glory...

    Folks,

    I was having lunch with fellow HC and WorldIRC yesterday. The Rogers' full site is just less than a kilometer from us and a Samsung Galaxy S 4 SGH-I337M was in front of me. The top 3 rounds in the LTE Band 7 (2600) with 20MHz bandwidth...

    --

    I am NOT "the" HC, we are TWO different individuals!

    This graph shows LTE performance drops precipitously, as you move more than 0.5 km from the tower.

    Have you experienced similarly, out in the field?

    Also, some carriers (I found Bell, so far) are deploying LTE towers with 20MHz channel bandwidth, the maximum possible. (We have a filter LTE Max to show such towers.)

    Do you find, all other things equal, 20MHz offer faster performance than 10MHz or 5MHz?

    As of this morning, the Loxcel cell tower map has Bell's 139 LTE Max towers. I hope to have Rogers BRS data in 2 - 3 weeks, and will load it on the map, as soon thereafter.


    Looking ahead a few years, there's something called LTE Advanced, which aggregates multiple channels for ever faster speed. Amazing, the channels don't even have to be contiguous. Gigabit performance is possible, if you're standing really close to the tower.
