Has anyone tried using the network with a 4G LTE phone? Are you stuck with 3G speeds? Thanks in advance.

I don't know what is good but using speedtest with z220 indicating 4G I get 10Mbps down and 2.75 Mbps up.

I have an S4 but I can't get any speeds above 0.05mbps. I spoke with speak out tech support and they gave me apn settings and reset my device, but still not improving. Before I called tech support I tried every setting in the trouble shooting thread, but no luck.

These are the settings that I was given by speak out tech support, one big difference I noticed was the "*" for APN Type. Here's what I have that's giving me 0.05mbps on the edge network.

APN: rogers-core-appl1.apn
Port: 80
MMSC: http://mms.gprs.rogers.com
MMS Proxy: 10.128.1.69
MCC: 302
MNC: 720
APN Type: *
APN Protocol: Ipv4/ipv6
APN Proxy: Ipv4

Well lately I noticed edge only and now my speed went way down to .18mbps and .09 up. Now it is a joke. Don't know what Rogers did but they screwed Speakout by the look of it.

Correction!!! I guess these android updates change settings on their own. My data setting became 2G only after an update. Changing it to auto brought back 4G speeds!!!

The edge speed definitely prevents me from going over my data limit, and I find that BBM and WhatsApp seem to work fine on the Edge network, so for me I think its worth the $10/mo. Instead of texting for $0.15ea, I essentially have unlimited texting by using BBM, of course it only works if the people you're talking to have BBM too.
