Speed tests in the Boston area
I would like to know what speeds everyone is getting in the downtown Boston area. I'm getting 4-6mpbs dl on the netgear 6100d while connected to LTE.

A lot of things can affect your speed test and honestly I don't trust them anyways.
First there is signal strength and then there is congestion. Find the best place in your home for the 6100 and try it at 4 am.
This is a link to Sensorly for Boston. You can see user reports of signal strength and speed reports for any carrier, any band.
This is the Boston thread on S4GRU. They discuss Sprint 4G/LTE coverage, speeds, etc.
I know here that if you could get it out to a good tower you could easily see high 20's to mid 30's during the day. Mid 50's at night. Adding a real antenna makes a huge difference too.
