Thread: The Best APN

  1. #1
    Arrow The Best APN
    Hi Guy,

    Many people have been searching around in the forum to find the best APN from Tmobile, so I create this Thread for people post their best speed from Tmobile Edge network.

    Please test you speed at lease 3 time before post under this category.

    Here is Example:

    I live around Bay Area

    Test on 17-Oct-2008
    APN: epc.tmobile.com
    1. 273 kbps
    2. 198 kbps
    3. 211 kbps

    Mine everything working except App Store, iTunes and Youtube but I could use MxTube to substitute Youtube.

    Ok here's mine:

    Would help if you put what plan you are on too. Full Internet plan here.

    Using iNetwork Test app

    DC / Virginia in my apartment

    internet2.voicestream.com
    62.78
    106.35
    153.28

    Youtube works. ITunes works as far as loading and previewing music, but if I try to purchase it says I need a wifi connection. App store also works.

    I usually average 150 to 200 outside my apartment. Usually 80 to 110 in my apartment the 153.28 is rare for inside the apartment.


    Now for the next apn: Still at my apartment.

    epc.tmobile.com

    170.52
    79.19
    137.78

    App store works. Itunes gives me the must be connected to wifi right away. You tube works

    Now it seems epc apn wins. What I have noticed, which is weird is that it is only faster in my apartment. Usually outside the apartment and other areas of DC the speed is about the same. Even at times it seems that the internet2 apn is faster with the exception of inside my apartment building.

    I use the internet2 apn since it seems more stable than the epc apn and I also travel a lot and I have heard different people saying that the epc no longer works in their area. Also, I don't worry because I have the full internet plan.

    Now before all you tzones freaks start flaming on me for paying full price, in my defense I need it because of the hotspots coverage. I use tmobile hotspots extensively with my travel not only with my iphone but with my laptop, so for me it pays off and I can actually afford a few extra bucks. Plus using the 300 minute myfavs plan I call unlimited and recieve calls unlimited to anywhere. So I save where most of you pay more on minutes.

    App Store and YouTube should work fine. Make sure you don't have the hack installed and reset your network settings. Restart the phone and then re-input the epc.tmobile.com APN.

    iTunes should give you a Wi-Fi error, which was normal in 1.1.3/4

    That's weird that you're able to connect to iTunes without Wi-Fi.

    I was using wap.voicestream.com for months, on the 5.99 plan, switched over 2 days ago epctmobile.com, much faster with all apps working except utube.
    West of Minneapolis, MN

    Using iNetwork Test apps at my office:

    90-150 kbps on various tests.

    Tested it last night in my neighborhood that has WIFI internet signal on the the telephone poles, (not using WIFI) but epctmobile.com I was getting avg speeds of 350 to 450 kbps!

    I am pumped. Great speeds for streaming music while I am out on my boat on the lake! Sweet!
