Looks like speedtest.net comes preloaded. C-Net tried it 8 times. Barely reached 2mb download. Dont even ask about up. Check C-Nets review on YouTube.
ATT did say that theyve completed backhaul to %99 of the towers,right?

That does not sound good.  Smiley Sad

Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

No they said 100% HSPA+ enabled. But you don't get 4G speeds until advanced backhaul is completed. The only place that has backhaul done that I know is New York City.

It's not just a backhaul upgrade that is required. There is a software upgrade required too. Are you sure it has been fully implemented and AT&T has "flicked the switch" with this?

It says on the links provided that the HTC Inspire 4G is a limited time offer,and a two-year contract is required. Qualified costumers only! So as of now that I know of you cannot buy the phone at retail price. Few Google searches apparently Amazon has listed the Inspire G for $100 with a two-year and $500 retail. We must wait until Sunday 02/13/11 to see if the Inspire will sell for retail and how much! Ugh starting to hate atnt,better have phone for retail!

Don't get caught up in the terminology. Consider how well AT&T handled it's 3G upgrades. Initially, how well did 3G work in New York compared to other parts of the country?

The Inspire will cost $499. U can buyit on the 13th.
ATTs 3G was great till iphone traffic camealong. But how they fell behind in upgrading to 3G+ & LTE,Ill never know. Very frustrating when I hear all the T-mobilers raveing about the hispeeds theyre getting. And VZ getting LTE first shoulda never happened. ATT will have access to their recent $1.9 billion purchase of LTE bands they bought from Qualcomm?. Their FloTv service dies at the end of march. Then ATT can start bustinout some yummy 700MHz LTE gorgeousness.

How do you know the Inspire will run $500 for full price without a contract? Smiley Surprised

The motorola Atrix price w/o contract is $499, so i see no reason why a phone that is less powerfull with less specs should be more, i think $500 price is right.
