AT&T 3G Network Sucks



I was curious to see what my extra 10 dollars a month was getting me in terms of speed so I went to www.testmyiphone.com on my lunch break and had a look. In a word: depressing. In several words: AT&T 3G is a rip-off! 1.38X EDGE speed? Weak! Sprint's network is something like 5 times faster then this. Update: I tested it again at home and the performance was considerably better, at least I got 253 kB/s this time, but I have the feeling it's running faster because it's Saturday morning now. I'll run the tests as I traverse the greater Chicagoland area.
