Hey, just have about a week into my new Phone that gets the 5G signals.

Been running some speed tests. Never mind the one off our work network this morning, but check out the fast 5G speeds around me. FYI carrier is AT&T. Just switched back, got some great Vet discounts, Verizon had absolutely shitty service plus their voicemail never was available and cost me lots of return calls. Even when cleared, it was full. Check out some of these network speeds! Feels like a new 800 hp car or something at my disposal.

LOL. Take the readings from the first line.
Then move the decimal point to the left two spots. That's what I get at home.😢😂💩

I'm a Slowpoke wannabe, just smaller retention ability... Two days ago I got the 12 Promax (5G) but 256gb...it is "Pacific Blue" too. I use the camera a lot and the phone upgraded from a 1 eye monster to a 3 eye monster. The OLED screen is wildly clear and images are outstanding.

Got sweet trade in $$$ for an I Phone 8 and not looking back. Apple has a nasty habit of not continuing software updates for older models.

Also gotta love the marketing...bigger/bigger/bigger....wait...back to offering smaller screens as the "Mini".

I'm on Verizon. They work well here in PA. When I did frequent business travel to Chicago prior to COVID the reception was shieeet.

AT&T labels their service as 5G but it really isn't. I have an iPhone 12 (also blue coincidentally) and it says 5G even though they don't actually have 5G service where I am yet. You're probably noticing the faster processor in the phone.

I have a new s21 ultra coming direct from Samsung, unlocked with all the goodies...will let you know what I find down here for speeds when I get her up and running...I also use the AT&T towers, better service than anything else I have tried.

My too! Old Century Link on copper is all we are allowed in our City because the dumb bastards allowed ONE bullshit cable company entry years ago. I won’t pay them what they want. Century Link gives me 40k mps on a good day at home. These numbers in the hundreds are goofy looking to me. I got most of that in Burnsville, MN but also one over in Chanhassen the other evening in the “downtown” area. That is far faster than I need anyway. The Forum stuff burns thru real fast while eating lunches.

I have an S21 Ultra on T-Mobile/Sprint. 5G in the parking lot at work (SE Michigan) is pretty fast (about 200mbps) but it doesn't penetrate the building very well. At home/around town (NW Ohio) it works great but it's much slower (about 50mbps).

Haven't tested speeds on the wife's new iPhone 12 yet (and it's also blue!).

The phone is graphite, but splurged for the blue cover. I can’t believe everyone with a Hellcat even gets the same phone colors!
