3G (HSDPA) Test

Recommended Posts

Soo....I got my new Motorola v3xx cellphone and tried to test it (in what's supposed to be a 3G area). Using dslreports.com I only get about 300Kbps, certainly not the > 1Mbit I was expecting. I tested it using testmy.net and continually get > 1Mbit.

Can anyone explain why there should be such a large difference? I am using the phone's built in micro-browser to run both tests.

I'm suspecting the poor results are issues with the micro browser.

300KBPS is pretty good for a cell phone. EVDO isnt much faster. Don't expect 1MBPS

is they actually advertise as HSDPA you should be getting 3.6Mbps some your connection should be :

HSDPA:

around 3600Kbps                                            this is in bites

which is 360kB/s                                              this is in Bytes

meaning a 3.6Mbps connection

this is if you get good reception of course and the network traffic

So if you are getting 300kB/s that is like a 3Mbps connection is not bad for a mobile phone
