    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.

    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...

    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!

    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.
