My HTC amaze 4G keeps switching between H and 3G. Why is that.
That's normal. Your phone displays H when it's actively using your data connection. It'll switch back to 3G to conserve battery when your data is idle.

wtf , so mobilicity is 4g now?
I got my htc amaze this summer and still i get the 3g bar light up?
what am i doing wrong here, guys?
Not 4G. It's HSPA+, which could also be called 3.5G.

Your phone will continue to show the 3G indicator.

same goes for Windy mobile. Say it's unlimited but it's actually 5GB and then after that they slow you down to 32kilobytes / sec. Meaning it's going to take literally a minute to load up an image intensive page or YEARS to download a gig.

How is it even unlimited if after the 5GB you can only use it at dial up speed?

But wind's speed is way faster than mobi. I live in Calgary and I used 25-2 BTS Plan with Mobi before. I was great but ever since their upgrade the speed and ping is horrible! Horrible means you won't be able to do anything on their network even if you want to open google.ca, it will take you 2 minutes to load sometime!

Also if you are going to reach the 5GB limit on your mobile phone, go and get a wired lane. Buy a cheap router on the boxing day. Unlimited doesn't mean abuse the network and slow down the whole network.

I think a lot of people don't understand that in order to get the HSPA+ speeds, you need an HSPA+ enabled phone. Here are some speed tests I did on my galaxy nexus on Mobilicity with the premium data add on. I streamed Gattaca from crackle as well without any buffering issues. These are from West Mississauga btw. I also tested from different servers, and it generally gave me 3 mb/s - 6.5 mb/s. It slowed down slightly from 5-7 pm down to around 2.5 mb/s to 4.5 mb/s.

Yes but your ping value is @#$!%$^#%^

Anyway, my max dn is 2.7MBPS. Never passed 3. I also checked my signal db, always ranging from -90 to -72. Right now I'm with Wind, the DN speed is 4.2MBPS and the ping is only 37ms. (Server in Edmonton.) Also signal level is ranging from -70 to -50 (I will get sightly better signal at home than at work.)

Mobilicity was so good! Right now it's a joke.

To be honest, if you are looking for faster data, go to Wind. I read on hofo that wind is bringing back their version of BTS starting tomorrow.
