    Verizon Vs. Xohm Bench Testing In Boston Commons

    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


    Xohm 3 tests in a row from using Speekeasy's andwidth test tool


    Talk about this post in our wimax forums.

    nation wide

    I live 90 miles outside of chicago, and travel in my car for work roughly 16 hours a week, are there plans for nation wide coverage, and if there is what is the time frame for this great tech!
    I mobile DJ on the weekends, will this be available if I plug it into my laptop for song downloads on the job? Or do I need to power this from an external souce? Even if I had to have my car there, I suppose I could save to a usb HD or memory card, but it would be great if I could plug and download right from the laptop.
    Great testing! Really really exciting new tech!

    Rob,

    Can you explain the uplink speed difference for the Xohm measurements that you posted earlier? They were almost 10X higher than what you experienced in this measurement.

    I have no idea why the upload speeds were so low. My guess is that they have some type of non-commercial asymmetrical link at the tower for testing purposes only.

    We have been very pleased with the upload tests in Baltimore so this must be a result of Boston being a test network.

    I will be up in Boston again over thanksgiving and will test it again then.

    I should try the network in Dallas

    Maybe I should try the network in Dallas. I'm in Austin (a little bit south of Dallas).

    Would you be kind and post your findings in Boston on our web site: WiMAXED.com?

    Thank you!
