Default Finally got to use 3G on my iPhone...

I am visiting relatives in Madison, WI. Since I don't have 3G where I live I figured I would test it here. These are the results:

Test Date: Dec 19, 2009 8:16:10 PM
Connection Type: Cellular

Download: 1484 kbps
Upload: 201 kbps
Ping: 2699 ms

A detailed image for this result can be found here:



It seems decent except for the latency...

The 3G service out in Portland, OR was incredibly fast. I miss it already. We moved back here to IA and it's garbage in comparison. Portland and Seattle's 3G is the fastest I have seen in the entire country so far with all the traveling I did.

On ATT one should ping with a larger than standard size and more than once to get a good measure. You should see ~100ms pings. ATT network seems to want to make sure you really want/need a fast data channel before they give you one.

When tethered on 3g I get pings under 100. I've played a few online games with it, nothing too intense, DOTA and League of legends.

2300 ping is awful, must be the phone (ducks)

your upload is higher than your download, not that either of them are of any use to you at those speeds though

^^^That looks like it's edge though, not 3G?

That's pretty crazy to get 3Mbps down on a cell. I wish I had that.

i still dont get that on dsl or cable for a reasonable price, 1-2mb down is the norm here, 3g has been growing extremely fast since it got introduced with the iphone but coverage is not great and speeds are around the same as the dsl speeds, with caps at around 1 to 2gb depending on carrier, one carrier will automatically charge you if you reach the cap the other one will cap your speed at 128k for the rest of the month

Yeah sadly it is E (edge or as my wife says Excruciatingly-slow Network).. like I said, a bit ironic given that we live in AT&T's former HQ and are adjacent to the new HQ and we can't get 3G service. I hear from a LOT of people here in the loop area that 3G service just outright sucks. With the whole brooha over 4% of iphone users supposedly using 80% of network bandwidth, I'm hoping AT&T goes to a tiered plan, seeing as we are locked in for 2 years, I don't believe they can change any past contract (just new ones), so either we get grandfathered in, they change plan which results most likely in several lawsuits, or they'll allow people to end the contracts w/o penalty <== what I'm hoping for personally.

This may be a stupid question, but do you have 3G enabled on your iPhone?

not a silly question but yes 3G is enabled.. if I walk 3 blocks to the AT&T store I get 3G service.. 3G service downtown is horrible as far as AT&T is concerned.
