Atrix 2 Data Rates Compared to Other devices
Well I figured I'd post a finding that seems to hold true all over my area..
The Atrix 2 is the fastest phone in terms of data rates i've used with 1 exception.
Here are my test results and signal levels.
Atrix 2, Site ID 3a7d (1900Mhz), -87dBm
Speed Test.net Site: Auburn CA

3a7e 850Mhz -62dBm:
Max Down: 3.35 Mbit
Max Up: 1.02Mbit
Avg Down 2.9Mbit
Avg Up: 1.04Mbit
Heres an interesting score:
iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3.5)
3a7d 1900mhz -85dBm
Max Download: 8.76Mbit
Max Upload: 1.39Mbit
avg Download: 7.91Mbit, avg Upload: 1.22Mbit
3a7e 850Mhz -63dBm
Max Down: 6.9Mbit
Max Up: 1.08
Avg Down: 6.3Mbit
Avg Up: 1.01Mbit
I find it interesting the iPhone 4 PRIOR to the IOS 5 upgrade was actually faster than the Atrix 2.
The tests where done with all devices sitting on the same spot on the table, in doors with the latest version of speediest.net app.
Also of an interesting note, the iPhone 4 was the *same* iPhone 4 for both iPhone tests, only difference being the iOS versions.
Not that any one cares about the apple crap, but I figured since it was surprising to me that a *non 4G device* (at least as far as marketing jargon goes) was faster until seemingly crippled.
The Same SIM was used in all of the testing. (iPhone 4 sim is a pain in the ass)
At any rate, it would seem the Atrix 2 is one of ATT's faster devices.. Any one else notice a severe increase VS other devices you've used? Any one found it to be slower?
