    Hi guys, I was wondering what are the speedtest.net results you are getting with EDGE on Att?

    I have Att currently and like them alot but I know that Verizon has more 3g coverage than Att.

    Since I will probably be on Edge more often than if I was with Verizon I was wondering what speeds I could expect across the board in case I travel. If Att Edge speeds are too slow then I might lock in unlimited data with Verizon before it goes away.

    Thanks for posting your results. If you can put Ping, Download, & Upload speeds in mbps I would appreciate it :)

    Edit: also for anyone wanting to know you can force Edge by going to settings -> general -> network -> and turn off enable 3g

    And as a side note, I always have 3G coverage where I live. So for me, switching to Verizon is never really a thought, but I would if I didn't have 3G coverage after looking at the difference that I got between Edge and 3G.

    During off-peak hours I get 30+ with ComCast. However the speed does taper off after a few mins.

    ATT iPhone 4 (3G):

    Ping: 247 ms
    Download: 2.13 MBps
    Upload: .74 Mbps

    and just for a comparison:

    Verizon iPad (3G):

    Ping: 207 ms
    Download: 1.17 Mbps
    Upload: .09 Mbps

    Both were in same location, and tests were done at the same time.

    oops - top ones are 3G

    At&t iPhone Edge:

    Ping: 499 ms
    Download: .14 Mbps
    Upload: .09 Mbps

    and interestingly, i found out today that you can not make an iPad turn off 3G (use only edge). How odd.

    It could just be your location, your plan, or a bad router. Actually, all users are throttled technically.

    Where are you planning to travel that it's EDGE only? Most cities have 3G :).
