  3. Boston Xohm Wimax vs. Verizon Comparison. The Ultimate Bench Test

    by , 10-10-2008 at 10:03 AM


    Why is this the ultimate bench test? I got to sit outside with 70 degree fall weather in the Boston Commons – On a bench; Ahhhh.

    For those of you who are regular readers of our blog, I promise we will get back to more car computing content soon. We are one of the few people in the country who have active wimax hardware so there is almost a sense of duty that has set in.
    Verizon - 3 tests in a row from using Speekeasy's andwidth test tool

  4. Xohm Boston Wimax In car testing - It works at 65mph!

    by , 10-09-2008 at 09:58 AM


    As promised we tested Xohm in Boston on Wednesday.

    A hex on the skeptics!

    Wimax’s black magic is prevalent and resilient in more places than just Baltimore even at 65mph! With a name like Mp3car, we have to test this stuff in our cars...
    Below are the results of an in car “driving” test from Boston Logan airport to Weymouth. Keep in mind that Xohm is not officially active in Boston and the network is still in test mode.
    Xohm did not work on the runway or inside the airport because they probably don’t have any towers there yet or they are down for upgrades. Xohm DID work at high speeds on the Runway at Baltimore’s BWI so it was not a structure or plane interference issue.

    We started driving south away from the BOS airport and before we hit the toll I was getting 2.5 MBPS on my speed test results. The testing didn’t quite finish before we went in the tunnel. So I kept testing all the way to Weymouth. Coverage was patchy, but when it worked, it really worked. Bandwidth speed tests were impressive despite driving at 50-65 mph.
    On the maps below you can see a little white man. These men were automatically rendered on my Google map by Xohm’s Location detection feature. They were generally accurate within about 1000ft.

    I will write more tomorrow and throughout the weekend on Xohm’s Location Based Services (LBS) and features. For you Boston locals I plan to do speed tests in 3-4 other areas of the city while I am here.

    Talk about this in our Wimax Forums.
    UPDATE:
    Boston College High School. 2.221 MBPS down 604kbs Up 3.47 PM Thursday, OCT 9
