    All we get is O2's ****** network thats always down and gives you an average of 500kbps...if you're lucky to get coverage

    Pics? According to Wikipedia (yes, I know, that Wiki is not 100% accurate, but it is correct in most cases), the fastest EDGE connection is Evolved EDGE and can go up to 1Mbps.

    He's not using EDGE, he's using 3G. 3G with HSDPA can go up to 7.2mbps download speed, I think.

    Crap that's what I get with my iPhone over wifi.
    3G is a feeble 0.55... *sigh*

    Mine's only a 3G, not S, but I think the network is the limiting factor.

    Reading is fundamental.
    He said 6550Mbps is 2x the speed he gets on EDGE. That would put his EDGE connection at ~3275Mbps. Not possible.

    That's only .175Mbps. That means your 3G speed is ~36 times the speed that your EDGE connection was on your N95.
    I get the same speed for EDGE here in the US (in NY). Your 3G connection, however, is 4x as fast as mine.

    Yeah I really need to move to Sweden now... Here are my results on 3G

    128kbps down, 193kbps up. (and this is 4 bars, 5 bars I generally never see)

    AWESOME!

    The networks in the UK love to bang on about their fast 3G HSPA networks, but as they don't spend the money rolling them out past the densest areas of population very few of us actually see the claimed speeds.

    It's nice to see someone getting the speeds these technologies are actually capable of. Maybe one day a business will come along that's less concerned with squeezing every penny of profit out of every penny of investment and a bit more committed to providing a decent service.
