    Are you sure that's EDGE or Wi-Fi?

    Mine is 48Kbps which tells me its on GPRS right now. Will try again when i get to Central London.

    I'll call BS on this too.

    Much as I would love to think I was getting in the 400s, I thought the theoretical max was 385. Recent checks were 546(!!!) 427 282 367 and 457. Surely that's a bit OTT. (I tried to clear any cache by going through a dozen or so pages before testing again. Don't really know whether the phone caches any web sites.)

    Mind you I'm only 100m away from three o2 transmitters. 2 GSM and a UTMS.

    i think it's overoptimistic. as you say the maximum i supposed to be 384. makes me wonder what i'm really getting when it gives me 54!

    These results are almost entirely bogus. Look at the page, it loads of JPG image it must be using that to measure time of a known file size. However... O2 (and likely other networks) intercept and recode JPG files to make them load faster... making the file size smaller.

    Thanks for the link.

    Got a much more realistic 233 followed by 240.

    I tested on that new site and got 125kbps for a GPRS connection. Good if it's accurate, but I have my doubts.

    i just went tested mine on the i.dslr.net one when i was in an edge area and got 86. i don't think i'm getting EDGE because i'm on pay and go.
