Verizon's 4G LTE network is a rocket-fast boredom killer (video)

We at PhoneArena often put our devices to endless rigorous testing, but we would have never thought about this one! Now, knowing the real transfer speeds on your phone makes sense. Putting Verizon's 4G LTE network to hardcore testing makes sense. But what about measuring just what you can download in the time it takes a rocket to reach its destination?

Luckily, in the video below the rocket wasn't aimed at the testers, but the whole concept is just plain fishy. Well, but if that wasn't enough, Verizon suggests you another earth scenario – downloading a movie and a game in the few seconds of intimacy you have have with your phone aboard a plane just before it takes off. Those tests should tell you something, but if you want some old style megabit per second scores, you can always visit our in-depth look here. With a handful of 4G-capable phones coming up on Verizon in the very near future, keep your rockets ready for some testing!

If only Verizon would release their 4G LTE phones as fast as they claim their network is. Alas we can only dream. I believe I am bored waiting on the 4G LTE phone released from Verizon. Wake me up when we have at least three models released in the mix and stop with the drum pounding until then.

Agreed. If they keep pushing the Bionic back anymore I may have to shift my sight back to the iPhone. But as long as it's taking them I hope they're making sure all the bugs are out before the release.

You hear that HTC? Bugs, like battery and call quality...needs fixin'

bugs being worked out... Hmm you mean like the fact that the boinic NEEDS the dual core just to keep the UI working properly? lol, do your research and you'll see that the Bionic is nothing special. Another fail from Moto.

Agreed. Anyone who is waiting on a Motorola phone when an HTC is already available is pretty ass backwards to me.

I'm sorry were you not around for the..
Droid2 global
Droid pro

Not one of those has held up to the incredibles stabity and UI.

If you disagree ask anyone with a Motorola how their email is working for em.

Absolutely fantastic. I just came from the OG Droid to the HTC Thunderbolt. Great phone, the thunderbolt. Email, and everything else, worked great for me. I also think that the function keys had the best layout as well. But I know each does have their own opinion.

Oh, I do mean to state the OG droid was awesome.
