Default Wind/Mobilicity Speed Tests

I know there are a number of speed test threads for the Nexus 4 but I want this one to be specifically for mobilicity and wind customers.

I have mobilicity's fake 4g premium data.. network type is set to lte/gsm/CDMA auto

Here are 7 test results with a peak of 10mbps down anyone on wind or Mobilicity will know that the speeds are unheard of.

These tests show an average speed of around 8 Mb but typical speeds are generally much closer to the 3.5 to 4 MB range.

Where in Mississauga did you take these speeds? I'm so thrilled.

Near heartland and about 1 km away from a newly erected tower (Terry fox and eglinton).
Keep in mind these were taken on a Saturday morning between 10-1130 (minimal congestion)

Damn, I feel sorry for you guys that live in Canada if you think those are good speeds...? The upload is horrid but the ping times are pretty good.
Current Devices:

HTC One (M8) on Verizon **S-Off on ACR rom w/ CodeCraft 2.8 OC kernel**

Wind doesn't have a great network, but when you pay $29 a month for unlimited everything you don't expect lightning quick download speeds. I was with them for awhile but I had to switch back to Rogers for reliability purposes. Still, those are good speeds for wind. Hopefully they continue to improve their network.

i dont know if they changed it, but when i had my galaxy nexus before nov 13, i was on basic data and i couldnt get more than 2 mbps, but i did get around 800kbps upload,
i wonder if got the fast speeds for basic data users too now, if not im going to switch to premium data
