Web & App Development

The fastest internet speeds I've ever seen - even Time Warner's best internet package available in my area didn't compare to Google Fi on the Nexus 6.  I don't know if it's the area I'm in (Joshua Tree) or what, but I clocked my speed today at 57MB/second.  Blazin fast!  That's actually one of the surprising parts... I was not supposed to be eligible for Google Fi because I had just re-located to Joshua Tree.  So I put my old San Diego address in the sign up form so that I could get my new phone & service.

I can't say which one of their carriers it was coming from... maybe it has the ability to combine Sprint and T-Mobile's speed.  I don't know, but I'm happy with it... especially since I clocked that pretty much in the middle of the desert (Joshua Tree, California).  If I wasn't charged by the GB, I would get rid of cable and just use my phone for internet.  But, using 50-100 GB/month would cost a small fortune in terms of a phone bill.

I was a little concerned that Google Fi would choose the cellular network since it was almost twice the speed of my wi-fi (35MPS) and use my data.  But, after a call to Google Fi, they said that won't happen.  It will still choose the slower wifi signal - which is good news.

Other than that, everything else on the Nexus 6 seems perfect.  Except for the camera sometimes.  It seems that I have to take 3 or 4 pictures to get a clear one.  With Optical Image Stabilization, I wouldn't expect that.  But, one good thing about Android and Google is that they can always fix something with an update.  So I'll just hope for that.  Connection has bee unreal... As of about a month, I've not heard the slightest glitch in audio or had a single dropped call.  About as perfect as reception can be in a phone.

Little Update... I've since clocked it at nearly 100MB/sec.

UPDATE: I have since clocked my speed at 98MB/sec on Google Fi.
