    Did VZW flip a switch

    Since yesterday I have noticed that when running a speed test my average download speeds are between 2.4-2.6mbps. In the past I was lucky to break 1.0mbps. So I am curious as to whether or not anyone else has noticed this speed increase. I am running .230 on the Storm

    What does the same mean, in terms of actual speed?

    I agree. I'm on vzw in PHX, and my browser seems much quicker. I'm also running .230. Don't know what they did, but I like it.

    That's pretty much impossible, Verizon's new 4G (LTE) is on the 700Mhz bandwidth which is completely different from CDMA, the CDMA radio wouldn't even see it.
