Can you guys turn off your wifi and run an EDGE speed test using the speed test app from the app store? The reason I'm asking is that I want to compare AT&T EDGE speed to Tmobile EDGE speed using a standardize test. When I run the EDGE test using testmyiphone.com, I tend to get inflated result. For example:
I get 281 kbps using testmyiphone.com
and 56 kbps using the speed test app.
I tend to favor the speed test app because it shows the same result whether I test it on my iphone or my desktop computer.

113.4 kbps with speed test and 42 kbps download/20 kbps upload with testmyiphone.com

That's strange that testmyiphone.com gave you a lower result. I expected higher edge speed from AT&T. It is very slow on T-Mobile.

Just did it again today after my test I posted in your other thread in T-Mobile and I got 130kbps down, 19kbps up, a big step up from yesterday.
I'm in southeast Michigan on AT&T with 5 bars...Respect your elders.

With 5 bars on TMobile, I generally get 50-56 kbps if I'm not moving. If I'm in the car, 20-35 kbps, slow.

Using speed test in San Bruno CA with 5 bars I get 23-32 kbps down and 28 kbps up. That really stinks!

I get anywhere between 1300 and 1700 down and 100-260 up.
On T-Mobile in the UKHe who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

It is on HSDPA.
3G has a Max of 384kbs down.
My contract with T-Mob expires tomorrow so I was going to go to O2 (the official carrier here in the UK) but was appalled by their speeds which fluctuated wildly between 0 and about 580kbs.
I've renewed my contract with t-mobile for another 18 months. Having decent speeds makes all the difference.
