The Sixth Round of Mobile Testing will begin at the end of September

The sixth round of the CPUC's mobile testing program will start at the end of September and will continue over the next six weeks, finishing before Thanksgiving and winter snow. Like rounds four and five, the project will test 1,990 points up and down the state, rather than the 1,200 points which were tested in the first three rounds of testing. Like the previous rounds, the sixth round will test speed and latency for four providers; T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon and AT&T. We will test each provider by both netbook and phone. It is good thing that Sprint dropped its bid to purchase T-Mobile, then we would only have three providers to test. The first five rounds have shown marked improvement by all the providers. Will the sixth round continue this trend? We shall see.
