using speedtest.net with a full 4G signal I'm getting 111ms ping, 2.34mbps down, and 2.25mbps up. Turning off 4G and using 3G i get a 151ms ping, 1.26mbps down, and .99 mbps up. While the 4G is faster, I guess I was just expecting a little more...what is everyone else seeing, are my speeds "normal"? For reference I'm in a suburb of St. Louis, MO.

Rooted- running Das BAMF Sense 3.0 RC5 with the new rooted version of the OTA radio and Imoseyon's lean kernel 2.3.6 oc to 1.41

Yeah, a lot depends on the network (some get 3, some get 30) while a lot also depends on signal. And unfortunately, you can't just go by the signal strength. You can have a strong signal but it still be bad. For example, go stand inside a tin barn. You'll have a string signal but because of the way it bounces around in there, you'll have a lot of corrupted data that needs to be retransmitted. So just strength will not always tell you the full picture.

Is that what your usage is like on a day to day basis? How long have you had the phone?

Yeah it's been pretty consistent using the speedtest.net app. I've had the TB for about three weeks now (convert from the original droid -->Droid X)

Speedtest.net App does not work for any Gingerbread ROM currently on the Thunderbolt.

And by not work I mean that it will show much slower speeds than you are actually getting.
This is true for most speedtest apps, even on the web as most are throttled due to excessive bandwidth consumption if there are left open.
