How many megabits/second up and down does 4G run on?
I'm used to comparing Internet speeds by the number of megabits up and down the connection allows. By this measurement, how fast is 4G?

on Overdrive Pro 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot
I used to have a Clear overdrive pro so it is the same device as well as actually the same exact service ( Clear provides the 4G WiMax for Sprint and actually if I'm not mistaken Sprint is heavily invested in Clear and as such either owns them or pretty much does .....at least a large part of them ) .....but anyway I used to have a Clear Overdrive Pro and in the nearby city where there was 4G .....I have actually clocked up to 17 Meg's before.......usually it is about 5 Meg's down and about 1 and a half up though.

Virgin Mobile answered your question in the FAQs:
What are the data speeds of Virgin Mobile's Broadband2Go 3G/4G devices?
Operating on the Sprint 4G (WiMAX) Network, the Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go Overdrive ProTM 3G/4G Mobile Hotspot and the U600 3G/4G USB Sticks average speeds ranging between 3 - 6 mbps as compared to 600 kbps - 1.4 mbps on the 3G Nationwide Sprint Network - that's up to 10 times faster!* The Sprint 4G Network reaches over 70 markets in the US.
*Based on download speed comparison of Sprint 3G avg. speeds (600 kbps - 1.4 mbps) vs. Sprint 4G avg. speeds (3 - 6 mbps). Actual speeds may vary based upon plan or other factors. These Virgin Mobile's Broadband2Go devices operate on the Sprint 4G WiMAX Network.
