Hi does anyone tested your 3G speed by speedtest?

my result are:ping:143ms, download:1813kbps, upload:356kbps

I feel the speed is pretty slow.

How about yours?

ping time on mobile data always sucks

I was getting between 5 and 6 Mbs down on an iPhone 4S. I can't tell you want the upload was as it never finished the test. The app apparently doesn't like the proxy.

Using a mobile speedtest...with small data I get 1.4 down. With 2 MB file I get 5-8mbps.

similar speed with my 4s, ping time is still triple digit but that can be related to how many people is around.

Like any mobile network from any of the carrier, there is heavy traffic times and light times. The other important part is the phone generation and what CPU it has. I been with Speakout UMB for 4 years and went through 4 different phones. The upload test is wonky since we are limited through the proxy so the result is not very accurate.

The iPhone 2G can't be compared since it could only connect to Edge.

The iPhone 3G is no better than the 2G even though it is connected on the 3G network. The Speedtest.net test result in sub 2MB/s download never go beyond that.

The next phone is the Samsung Galaxy Captivate i897 from Rogers. This phone I thought was fast gave sub 4MB/s download. I never really see it faster than 4MB/s. This phone has a single core A8 running 1GHz.

Now my recent phone is an LG Optimus LTE. Though I can't connect to Rogers LTE network, I am able to get as fast as 8MB/s on the 3G network. This phone has a Qualcomm 1.5GHz CPU.

I also had a friend run a test on an iPhone 4. The speed correspond to the same as the Captivate, single core CPU.

I definitely see a trend in speed with newer generation phone with faster processor. So if you want to see faster network speed (not accounting for traffic), go get a newer phone. I would not say a quad core will then double the network speed but there will be an increase.

Ping 117ms, Download 737kB/s (5.8Mbps), Upload not measurable (ie blocked) on iPhone 5 in Downtown Toronto.

Btw: Given that my cable gives me only 10-12Mbps I am very impressed!
