    Hey all,

    Before with my HTC One X I consistently got around 25meg down and 12meg up with Speedtest app at work. With my Lumina i'm maxing out at around 7 meg down and 7 up. Since there is no Speedtest app winthin the Win8 app store, I downloaded the 'my Speed Test' app instead. I conducted these tests in the same identical location so its not a cell tower distance issue. Either the "my Speed Test" app is not accurate or the Lumia itself is limiting it's speed somehow.

    Anyone else noticing this? Or is there a better speed test app to use?

    Try this app. You need to use the link as it is not listed in the store.

    another one to try is Quick Bandwidth test. I do not have a link for that. I know I had some very different speeds between apps.

    nice. the one i was using wasn't very useful so i was looking for an alternative.

    now, for some reason, this "bandwidth" app doesn't show up when i search on the 920. anybody else?

    Thanks, this app is much better. JConn_Lefty that's why pvcleave said to use the link, the app is meant for Win7.5 devices which is why its not listed for our 920s.

    Wait. It doesn't matter if YOU are in the same spot. What matters if you are connecting to the same connection point for the test.
    For instance, if you're in NY, and for one, it connects to a NY server, and another, a server in Canada, you cannot directly compare the two.

    My LTE speeds are higher with my L920 from my experience.
