So today I thought I would do a test in the Washington D.C. area to compare two 3G phones. The new 3G Iphone and a HTC 8525. I went to www.dslreports.com/mspeed a well known testing site for things like this. I did the 1mb test and here is what I found. 3G Iphone - 255 kbps 8525 - 455 kbps Edge Iphone - 60 kbps As you can see for some reason the 3G Iphone has some serious connection issues to the 3G network, either the antenna in the Iphone isn't good enough to get the right reception even though the number of bars is the same basiclly on both phones, or the 3G iphone is detuned some how to not be as fast? I think this is a very serious problem, maybe AT&T didn't want their network flooded with new users using all their bandwidth, hence the reason you are limited to downloading only apps 10 megs and smaller while on 3G. I hope more people start doing tests like this and we get some kind of official response from AT&T and Apple as to why the 3G Iphone isn't so "3G" If anyone else has access to other 3G phones please post your comparison results if possible.
