Thread: 3G speed?

  1. #1
    Default 3G speed?
    I was just wondering what sort of speeds people were getting on their 3G networks?
    Using the speedtest app (free from the app store) I get
    This is on T-Mobile in the UK.

    What does everyone else get?

    "Confucius say" () my speed test is crappy at my house because I am literally half a mile from the 3g cutoff line so I did the wifi test

    Interesting - I easily get over 7Mb down (I have 20Mb cable but never got more than 9 on the iPhone) but upload speeds here in the UK are cr*p - limited to 768kbs - you seem to have far better upload speeds in the US.

    Would love to have seen you trying to use your phone at that speed

    my 3g speeds at work ranged between 40-160kb/s and my upload ranged between 0-150kb/s(yah thats a zero it timed out a couple times).

    man, that is not what I was hoping for at all....

    I have full bars at my desk too, I will have to try this again from home.

    hmm did it again and it was 634down 234up how inconsistent.
    make it a great day!

    The reason I asked was because I was hoping to find out what sort of speeds people were finding throughout the world and in particular on O2 in the UK.

    My T-Mob contract ends soon so I am thinking of going to O2 on PAYG and have today tried it - no 3G at home wher I have poor 3G on T-mobile so only get about 600kbs - on o2 i GET 20 - 60 KBS.

    Not impressed - think I'm going to have to stay with T.
