Default LTE in NYC

To anyone getting better than 25 mbps in Manhattan: Please tell me if you made any modifications, e.g., radio. Thanks

modifications - stand directly under a mobile cell tower between 1-3am when no one is using it





don't think any carrier has 20+20 active in NYC yet, so max theoretical speed for 10+10 is 75mbps down

theoretical != practical.... i'd say you can hit maybe 60mbps in real life?

figure in interference, signal quality, other people using the cell tower, the speed of the backhaul, you might get 30-50mbps?

now, in real world, what do you need anything more than 20mbps burst? streaming HD Netflix?



// tmobile in NYC, LTE, get maybe 5-7 mbps indoors daytime, 10-20 outdoors daytime, 20-30 outdoors night

I hit 21 Mbps here in my hometown in Jackson Michigan. Figured new York would be like double my speed. I'm on straight talk which runs off AT&T towers

This is like asking "To anyone who can drive faster than 40 mph in Manhattan: Please tell me if you made any modifications, e.g., engine. Thanks

Traffic is never good for high speeds....
