Post Your Verizon XLTE Speed Test!

With Verizon XLTE now official in over 200 markets across the US, we thought we would do something that hasn’t been done around these parts in quite some time. A speed test post! Verizon XLTE is doubling bandwidth in heavily trafficked areas, but should also give us greater peak data speeds. In other words, you may be able to show off impressive data speeds once again on Verizon’s network!Β 

So let’s do this – download the Speedtest.net app, run it, and then post the a screenshot of your results to the comments. That’s it! This is really just a, “Hey, look how awesome (or not awesome) my speeds are! Praise me!” type of post.

To make this open to everyone, we will ask for speed tests from all readers, but try to note in your post if you are in an XLTE cityΒ or not. And be aware that even if you are in an XLTE city, you may not be in a part that’s covered all of the time. Take for example my speed test above. I’m in Portland, OR, yet I’m also in a terrible area for Verizon service just south of downtown and am likely not covered by AWS. We really just want to see how Verizon’s network is holding up these days.

Here is a list of Verizon XLTE cities. Here is a list of Verizon XLTE devices.

Show us what you got!

    I don’t even think Jacksonviile , FL was on the launch list. This what I got just today!

  • Stella Tyler

    I think we will request rate tests from all book fans, however attempt to note in your post on the off chance that you are in a XLTE city or not. Furthermore be mindful that regardless of the possibility that you are in a XLTE city, you may not be in a part that is secured constantly.
    Test Your Internet Speed

    Samsung S5 at 14:37PM PST in Redding California 3 bars
    3 test average
    Download – 18.73Mb
    Upload – 6.22

  • pman5k

    This is during peak usage hours with three bars… used to only get 25-30 mbps. May not be double at thos time but at 2AM with full signal I can get 95.6 down and over double up stream

  • pman5k

    I’m getting 95.6 down and 24.7 up in jeff city mo which is XLTE market. Thank god I still have unlimited…. this was with GS4

  • Djembeman

    Wow! Some of your speeds are insane. Colorado Springs, CO. 30-45 Mbps down. Samsung GS4. My wife’s HTC One M7 isn’t getting XLTE. I hope they can eventually connect to XLTE!

    • Djembeman

      It’s killing my wifi connection apparently. On the same 5Ghz wifi network my computer can hit 50 Mbps down on a good day, but today is only getting 25/11. XLTE is killing my wifi home network. Glad I’m still on Unlimited data!

  • colemanjj616

    Chicago, been seeing these speeds for the last two months though.

  • eddie7

    44/17 here in Phoenix.

    I must say that is amazing the speed you guys are getting.

    It makes me a little jealous…

  • PatrickD35

    Here is Dover DE speed

  • Bigsike

    Had it out with a Verizon rep via twitter yesterday. I think you can remove Cleveland from that list as no one here is picking it up and according to the rep “we’re not positive it will be available in your area”. So yea..

  • Tod Cox

    Reno, NV. Moto X. 1-3Mb down and 1 or less. FML.

  • Rodeojones000

    Rural Wisconsin. 30 miles from the closest XLTE city (Eau Claire). First one inside my house, second while standing on my front porch.

    And this is why I stick with Verizon. Show me another carrier with this kind of coverage in rural areas and I’ll switch (prior to XLTE speed was decent as well).

  • doczenith1

    This is from back in December 2013. Might have been one of test AWS cities. 78/41 for me on vzw in Lansing, MI.

    Anyone in the Denver area? I’m here and not seeing any change.

    • Djembeman

      Could have something to do with your device. I just upgraded to a SAMSUNG GS4 and my speeds went from about 12 Mbps down to around 40 Mbps down. Colorado Springs, CO.

  • pat kerby

    How is it that the Samsung 4 and the HTC one max, and the moto line up get the new broadband spectrum, yet my HTC One M7 came out before those and I can’t get it?

    • needa

      your phone is older than the other phones and you want to know why you cannot get it?
      i would imagine either it does not have the hardware to support it, or the software has not been updated yet if it does have the hardware. seeing that the phone has been updated to 4.4 and it still is not supported… i would bet that you do not have the hardware.

  • Eric

    Here in Santa Monica not to great

  • Jonathan Hartman

    I am right between Cincinnati and Dayton, and my speeds are too embrassing to post here.

    Anyone in the San Francisco Bay Area have a speed test?

    • JY20

      I’m not in SF, but I live in Menlo/EPA and work in Menlo. Speed is
      about 47-50mbps in Menlo/EPA border and Menlo is still at regular LTE of
      about 13-17mbps.

      • Guest

        I’m getting horrible speeds in San Jose at work.

      • derbo904

        Thanks man. I live near Ocean Beach in SF and I got close to 26mbps in certain areas of my house..down to 4 in other areas.. I wonder if it is activated in SF already.

    • Guest

      I got terrible coverage in San Jose at work.

  • Masterdizz

    This was taken back in feb over in Lilburn, Ga. All AWS speed according to the tower tech for verizon who services out area.

  • BC

    33 down 1.5 up
    Not bad down… Video and picture upload not good. Still rockin unlimited bandwidth plan as well. (typically only use 4-6 gb though lots of WiFi)

    Bakersfield still not getting good stuff

  • Helen Read

    At my office, Burlington, VT (not an XLTE city). But unlike my house, at least there is service. (I have to use a Network Extender at home.)

  • Shane McKeever

    I was changing servers, none of which were in Pueblo. All still faster than my Wifi, ha ha.

    I’ll try another test in downtown Pueblo.

      Maybe now?

  • Andrew Merewitz

    Is there anyway to tell if you’re using XLTE?

  • Tres Waters

    Will you have to receive a software update to take advantage of XLTE (Specifically, for the S5) or will it just work out the gate?

  • brenman

    So, there are only certain devices that can get the “XLTE” speeds? Droid RAZR MAXX 13 Mbps down, in Colorado Springs, an area that can get XLTE. Special 4G receivers in the phone eh? Sounds fishy.

  • Toledo, OH…

  • Justin H

  • Robert Manser

    Love seeing all you guys with great speed, but I might not have 60 down but I have 20 down with unlimited data and unlimited Hotspot through Verizon so I’m good on the 60Mbps. And only pay $24 for unlimited hotspot.

    • Zee Masai

      Daaaaaamn. I thought I was doing big with roughly 80 -100GB on unlimited. I bow down to you sir. lol

    Had to try this out quickly from work (yes, I made sure to turn off Wi-Fi). Got 71.67 down and 20.55 up. I had about 3/5 bars on my Moto X (my office has no windows). I used to see around 25 down/12 up when I had a full signal at home. I’m near north central Tampa, FL.

  • Nate595

    Damn I guess I won’t be able to brag about my T-mobile speeds being the fastest anymore, Looks like people are getting outrageous speeds with this XLTE

  • Rob

    Back on February 20th of this year I hit 52 up and 14.55 down. Since then besides a 20.4/4 and 26.6/3.4 most of the downlink speeds have been 8-13 mbps. WTF?

    My city is on the XLTE list, I’m using an LG G2, yet today I have been pulling 8.68 to 13.39 down and 1.46 to 3.72 up. Grrrrr….

  • Detonation

    From a couple weeks ago…not even in an XLTE City! (Milwaukee)

    • VT

      30 Mbit upload is Band 4 AWS.

      • Detonation

        Well then my town (a suburb about 25 miles outside of Milwaukee) got it weeks ago and isn’t on the list.

  • jer85008

    I hope this helps their coverage in San Diego, so many dead spots here. Now that I’m on T-Mo, I actually have much less of an issue with it. AT&T flat out smokes everyone here with coverage though, you can go 50 miles out into the middle of nowhere and get LTE with them. Good luck Verizoners!

      If you’re getting 35Mbps down on 2 bars, it sounds like you’re on AWS/band 4.

    So the top 2 pics were the only real improvements but how long did it take those crazy numbers from Vz 4g LTE to drop like rocks? I am perfectly happy getting 30+ DL and 15+ upload all day on my Tmobile, yes I know not everyone has great service buy I do and no reason to ditch my nexus 5 for any of the phone that have those speeds. Also with tthose crazy download speeds how come the upload is so slow?

  • pyro74boy .

    WOW some people are getting LTE advanced speeds. But XLTE is still not true 4G by definition right? because Verizon is not calling this the LTE advanced network it’s just Verizon taking advantage of the AWS spectrum.

    • besweeet

      With the odd marketing mumbo jumbo that carriers are getting away with, they could call it 6G and people will think it’s amazing.

    Moto X

    • Mark Faustino

      Whereabouts in San Jose is that? I tried with my Moto X at my work (across EBay) and I’m getting anywhere between 40-50 Mbps down

      • droidrazredge

        wow you’re getting those speeds in San Jose with your Moto X ? I’m not that far from your location and I’m getting 14 Mbps download. I wonder what’s going on with my phone.

      • Warwick

        I did this test in the Piedmont Hills south bay. Also getting similar speeds in Hayward.

        • droidrazredge

          How are all you guys with Moto X getting those speeds in San Jose πŸ™ ?

          • Mark Faustino

            Not sure if it makes a difference, but maybe try restarting your phone? Also, try changing the servers. The two that show up on my Speedtest app are Internode and SoftLayer, both in San Jose

  • Aj Bastedo

    Little falls NY…not xlte…20 miles from Utica….which is xlte

  • Kevin Dahlstrom

    Um…so…uh…no improvement here…San Ramon, CA (East of San Francisco)…E.T. says, “ouch”.

  • Marvin

    Pretty good

  • T_Dizzle

    They must still be working on the network in Lansing, MI because off a restart I got 5 mbs down and then two minutes later 37.7mbs.

  • Eric Soriano

    In Tampa/St. Pete and the speed isn’t bad but it’s not double. I’ve been testing since this morning and speed has inched up but I’d love to see close to triple digit download speeds!

    I’m in N.O. and I thought mine were good. I haven’t tested in a while and I just got a new phone, so I don’t know what my speeds were before.

    I’m in N.O. and I thought mine was good. I haven’t tested in a while,so I don’t remember what my speeds were before.

  • jb

    In Sarasota, FL. Should be covered by xlte. This is faster than my home wifi which came in at 25/6. Although the ping is faster at home (50 ms). Haven’t run speedtest in a LONG time so I have no idea if this is faster or not.

    • R3VO

      I am in Minneapolis as well and haven’t seen any increase in speeds at all near the campus. I talked to verizon and they said it was only in certain parts of the city and only would kick on if there was too much traffic for the normal towers.

  • Morris

    Edison NJ not really New York but close

  • Skrewee Lewee

    After seeing some of the others… I guess it’s not so bad. Live 15 miles north of Sacramento, but grab from a server 18 miles north of me?! I don’t get it.

    • David Moylan

      your test is on Wifi not through verizon

      • Tom Luley

        Currently in downtown Rome, not on the list but when they released LTE, Rome wasnt on the list, Utica was, but I was getting LTE. Assuming Rome is included…But have a buddy who works in Utica and he isnt getting XLTE speeds either.

      I just tried mine and I get half of that. What part of SJ are you in ?

      • Acyive

        I’m in sj too and only get a third of that…

        • droidrazredge

          What phone are you using ? I wonder if we have to do a phone reset to get our phones to switch ?

          • Acyive

            Using a moto x. Restarted the phone, reset my 4g and still no change πŸ™

          • Edson Sanchez

            I’m using my moto X. I am in San Jose by Union and foxworthy. Near Campbell

          • droidrazredge

            I don’t get what’s going on because a couple people below whom have Moto X are getting insane speeds. There is a guy in LA getting about 75 Mbps download and 21 Mbps upload. LA is a lot more dense than San Jose and has a lot more people. Then there is a guy in Columbus Ohio getting about 95-98 Mbps download and 23 Mbps upload.

          • Acyive

            Maybe it takes a while for everyone to get it? This is my speed currently

          • Acyive

          • Acyive

            Looks like it’s just dependent on where you are. Went to a different area and my speeds are great!

      • Edson Sanchez

        Near Campbell CA I’m using my motoX

        • droidrazredge

          Let me reset my phone. I’m not that far from you so we should be pulling from the same towers. Did you see the people getting speeds from 75 Mbps – 98 Mbps in areas like LA and Ohio with their Moto X ? I wonder why San Jose is so low.

  • cgalyon

    Somehow getting about 1Mbps. Guess I’ll have to try elsewhere to see what’s really going on

      • droidrazredge

        Yeah I’m having the same issues too. I see people in my same area get really good speeds with the same phone as mine, yet I’m getting pretty crappy speeds like I’ve always gotten.

        • Zac S

          I’m wondering if its because I’m on unlimited data

    • Jose

      Where in L.A? At the moment I am in North LA not too far from Dodger Stadium and I’m getting 8-14Mbps DL. I will be in the Wilshire District a bit later, so I will see if I’ll be getting better speeds there.

      • Roy Aguilera

        Burbank California

    • Qwerty

      Wow! I’m in east LA and I saw close to 30mbps down and I believe it was 11mbps up on my Moto X. An improvement for sure, but I’d love to be getting those speeds.

    I have an HTC One (M7), which is NOT XLTE capable, however, I still just got about 20 down and 15 up in Vancouver, WA (Kellen’s neighbor across the Columbia River).

  • djab

    Indianapolis, IN

    • That’s what I got on their original deployments of LTE back when I was on VZW (TBolt and later GNex). Sad. πŸ™

  • Shane Redman

    Not seeing awesome increase, but a slight increase in DC.

    • rbuilta

      Shane – where in DC?

      • Shane Redman

        I’m currently in NW right now.

        • rbuilta

          Hrm… I’m by the Verizon center and still getting 25 mbps down.

          • Shane Redman

            Maybe today will be better?

    • bobbymay1

      WHAT?! I’m on campus and only getting 15/1 πŸ™ I’m also inside though.

      • moew

        You should try outside!

    • besweeet

      Which device? If it’s a Cat3 LTE phone, that’s the fastest you’ll see.

      • KingSpeedy

        It’s a MotoX (so limited to 100/50), and it definitely feels like it’s hitting a wall at the high 90s. I’ve got a few tests clustered at 95-98, but most of them hit in the mid-to-upper 80s.

    • James Heyneman

      I used to get about 9Mbps in Dublin/Powell area and now I’m getting 16Mbps down so that’s at least an improvement.

      • EdubE24

        I’m still getting 7’s and 8’s!!

      • EdubE24

        Never mind it must have kicked in!!

    • MagicMiguel

      And now he’s at his data cap.

      • KingSpeedy

        Thankfully I’m still holding onto my unlimited data plan, but it’s pretty hilarious to think of someone running through their 2GB plan in 160 seconds.

        • brenman

          Nice! I was wondering if this was going to be a way to force unlimited data folks over to the family shared plans. I’m thinking of buying an HTC m8 for full retail or off eBay to keep my unlimited.

          • Cliff Keene

            Dude buy off contract I did with my note 3 and have not looked back! Foxfi plus unlimited verizon data =bye bye time Warner cable “high speed internet” lol

          • Trent Wood

            That’s exactly what I bought to keep my Unlimited data! Note 3 is awesome! As for the pic, my city has a population of 35,000. After chatting up a Verizon tech in the store, I found out my little city was a testing site before XLTE was official.

    • Joseph Ferguson

      Im north of campus and getting 45/3, maybe they are not done with Columbus

      Mine are just downright pathetic also, MaumelleLittle Rock area.

    • Joe

      Note 3 – Casper, WY. We will be the last ones to get AWS

    • moew

      What side of town? Someone said that Maumelle wasn’t seeing the new speeds, but Maumelle wasn’t on the list.

      Downtown proper, I get much better signal than you do. Two bars is arbitrary, but usually considered poor reception with poor speeds.

      Just tested after a reboot (update prls’), and I’m getting 18M+ at my house, which is in a “hole” for reception with all carriers… where it’s usually 5M+ only. I have two bars most of the time, sometimes 1.

      Biggest advantage, the ping times went from around 60-70ms like you show, but the test I just did is 17ms… OH YEAH!

      • Jeff Creemer

        I’m on the west side of town, near 430/630.

        • moew

          If you are much west of 430 at all, might not be seeing it as you are not LR proper. I’m in an old neighborhood around cantrell/miss.

          I don’t know where they are rolling out but if it’s like the original LTE rollout…. yeah I got near 78M down when it first rolled out.

          Just wanted to say that LR means downtown LR and any off cities are off the bets…. conway likes to think it’s LR proper, lol.

          • Jeff Creemer

            πŸ™‚ That’s true. I’m near the Butcher Shop, so that’s pretty close to 430. I know it’s often slower during the day here, guessing because of all the people at work. I just tested again and got 64ms ping, 5.96Mbps down and .82Mbps up. I’ll test again when I get home to Sherwood. It’s usually quite a bit faster there.

          • moew

            Right up the hill, to the south, is a new VZW repeater. You are probably on it and it’s the bane of VZW. I’m on that when I’m here, and since they installed that repeater… what 4+ months ago, I hate VZW when I’m in that area.

            Not just slow, but if you need a constant connection for your app, you find it disconnecting all the time… ugh. Come on Alltel… ermph VZW. This can’t be the VZW of the future for us, we might as well switch to Tmob right now… we know that tmob doesn’t work around these parts.

          • Jeff Creemer

            That explains why I don’t get good signal there. I ran a speed test from Sherwood and got 16.96Mbps down and 6.46Mbps up. I often get around 27/17 at home.
            I would LOVE it if T-Mobile had better coverage here!

  • besweeet

    Let’s not use all of that limited data at once, now! I kid… You unlimited users are still fortunate.

      • boisvert00

        Is it a guarantee that it’s using the cell network and not WIFI? I see the up and down lighted up.

        • Bob

          Definitely cell, Speedtest shows a different icon under the “type” column if you’re on wifi.

          • Djembeman

            I see what Boisevert is talking about there. In the status bar you can see that person is currently on wifi, but you have to realize that when you are in your speed test history the screen shot is not necessarily taken at the time of the test. The person took the screen shot a few hours after performing the tests.
