Tester Stephen Crews testing at El Capitan State Beach. How was that beach broadband? Verizon had the highest upload at 4 Mbps and T-Mobile the highest download at 9 Mbps, but neither provider deliverd served speeds of 1.5 up and 6 down. AT&T and Sprint were both well under served speeds. At this location, it may be more satisfying to surf the waves than surf the internet.
