This turns out to be quite a surprise on my end. As a few of you may know (mainly because I hardly ever spoke about this) but when at the Samsung Continuum launch event, I had the chance to meet quite a few prominent bloggers, get some contacts, and meet my Samsung agents. After at least a month, I’ll be returning the Epic 4G review unit they loaned me, but not without using 4G a bit more. We agreed, and now it’s my turn to return the device (next week).
But here’s the interesting part: Sprint 4G is due in Miami sometimes this year, but I just was using it for the last 30 minutes, seen above as the first two tests, reaching speeds of 6MBps and up downloads. This I definitely didn’t expect, and Sprint hasn’t been talking about 4G in Miami anytime soon this week, but “later this year”.
While I did run 2 tests (which are seen above), the “4G” offered by WiMAX is extremely spotty, with connections appearing a few feet from each other, but when connected, are extremely fast. I’ve contacted Sprint to ask them if they’re about to roll the 4G outwards right now, since it’s completely operational on my end. One more photo of Sprint 4G running in Miami on an Epic 4G is after the break.
