New York 4G LTE Speed Test! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon]

Here’s a 4G LTE speed test of AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon in Manhattan, New York.

If you are thinking about switching carriers, here’s my recommendation and thoughts on the best network in New York City:

T-Mobile – Best overall speeds/value especially if you can get their unlimited plan. I am paying $100/month for 2 lines unlimited.

Best U.S. Carriers for International Travel Data and Voice!

As a person who have traveled to more than 6 different countries in the last 6 months, I can tell you which U.S. carriers are the best for getting data and voice overseas.

Before I begin, I have service on all 4 major U.S. networks including AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Sprint.  I also have an account with Google’s new Project Fi.  Why so many networks?  That’s what I do for a living, test all the networks and find the best for you guys and I am always “high” on Android.

How to Activate Moto X Pure on Sprint!

For those of you who haven’t heard, the latest Motorola Moto X Pure Android smartphone is an “all-carrier” phone that has GSM and CDMA radios to support all AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks.  Not only that, the Moto X Pure also has 4G LTE bands for all carriers, meaning you will be able to use it on any U.S. carrier.

How to Install Verizon ROM on Sprint Galaxy S5/S4/S3 and Note 3!

For those of you with a Sprint Galaxy phone like the Galaxy S5, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, or the Note 3, did you know you can also enjoy more custom ROMs by installing Verizon custom ROMs?

We’ve always thought this process took a bit of coding and porting from Verizon ROMs to Sprint ROMs but in my recent findings show that you can actually get Verizon ROMs working on Sprint Galaxy phones fairly easily by adding APN and using 3rd-party SMS app to get MMS send working.

AT&T vs. T-Mobile vs. Sprint vs. Verizon 4G LTE Speed Test!

Here’s another speed test update I did while I was over at my parent’s house in Pleasanton, California.

My current favorite networks:

#1 – T-Mobile – They have done the best of upgrading towers recently. I am getting full 4G LTE in most places in SF Bay Area.  I used to get Edge in my parent’s house, now I get both 4G LTE and HSPA+!

How to Get Free Wifi Tether on Rooted Android! [AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon]

America is probably one of the best places to live in my opinion (why I live here) but also worst place to get wifi tether working, especially on the four major carriers like AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

Most countries around the world other than the U.S. have free WiFi Tether included as part of your data plan, meaning you do not have to worry about locked WiFi Tether hotspot.

Los Angeles 4G LTE Speed Test! [AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint/Verizon]

Well, since I am here in Los Angeles for the week, I figure to do a 4G speed test on all U.S. major networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon.

Los Angeles gets pretty good 4G LTE coverage for all the four networks, it seems the biggest difference is with the download and upload speeds.

Which Carrier Has Best 4G Plan? AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, or T-Mobile?

In this video, we go in-depth which U.S. carrier has the best 4G plan.

4G LTE is without a doubt the fastest 4G network with best coverage but is it right for you?

With 2-3GB 4G LTE plan, you are going to run out of bandwidth very quickly if you watch 2-3 hours of Netflix or 5-6 hours of Pandora. After that, you do have the choice of paying $10 per extra gigabyte or even if you have unlimited, you will most likely be throttled by carriers.
