My bad

Here's the correct reading using 3G from the same location that I used on my first try. I noticed I get faster download speeds with 3G and faster uploads with wi fi.

I wish I could take part, but there doesn't appear to be 3G around here. Or EDGE. I'm in London.

Traveling around the U.S. I've seen most 3G speeds to be about 1,000 - 1,200 kbps.

The best I ever saw was in the Outer Banks in North Carolina where I hit 1,700.
The worse was Manhatten in New York. I pretty much got EDGE-like speeds of 150 - 200 the whole time I was there.

I don't know how accurate these tests are, but I can at least judge which places are better or worse. Generally, rural areas that have just gotten 3G tend to be the best. Cities have better coverage, but even with 5 bars the speeds tend to not be as fast. More users, I guess.

since the results of the various speed testing apps/sites vary so much, i think we should all use the same one to have any meaningful comparisons. and since we started with the xtreme labs one, we should continue with that.
