    I get various speeds throughout the day depending on network traffic, sometimes it gets bogged down but usually always useable. I'm in Ashland, KY.

    I drove to south Atlanta. The speed was much better. I went from 1 mbps to 10 mbps. Anything above 5mbps it’s ok to me

    I can't imagine them getting much slower, most places I run speed tests get 5Mbps or less. Of course we only have band 25 and 26 if you're lucky.

    Sometimes during the early morning on B41 I can get into the 20-30 Mbps range but usually anywhere from 5-12 during the day. I am usually on B25 in my area but occasionally in some spots I get band 41.

    Yeah, they're ranking last by a far margin in Ookla data. They're slow and not getting better everyday.

    Galaxy S7 - Carrier Aggregation Band 30 10 MHz PCC + Band 4 10 MHz SCC1 + Band 12 10 MHz SCC2
    iPhone 7 - Carrier Aggregation Band 4 10 MHz PCC + Band 2 10 MHz SCC1 + Band 12 5 MHz SCC2

    -

    Intel iPhone 7 Plus- AT&T Unlimited Plus

    OMG, first world problems. Life goes on without wireless internet.
    If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

    Probably getting faster overall (sorry for those in problem areas or with old phones lacking new bands though).

    Speeds have been particularly slower for customers of Verizon and AT&T, Ookla said, although it’s unclear whether those decreases are due to congestion or to carrier policies that deliberately tap the brakes on data transmissions.

    “Our data shows that in the case of Verizon and AT&T, the percentage of test results with the loest-end download speeds (those under 5 Mbps) shot up compared to the period before these unlimited data plans were widely available. For comparison, both T-Mobile and Sprint are seeing the opposite effect in the same time period where fewer results are below 5 Mbps in Q2 2017 than they were in Q4 2016,” Ookla wrote.

    Speeds are fine and improved in fact for me in Raleigh.

    All I can attribute to this is the people that I know with sprint, their speeds are almost always awful (less than 5 Mb/s) and drop calls A LOT!
