Default What's your 3G Speed Test? Post Your Results here.

Hi. So before I got my MyTouch Slide, a T-mobile rep told me that the MyTouch Slide is actually a 3g HSPA+ phone. According to the rep only two phones in T-mobiles lineup are HSPA+. The MyTouch Slide and HTC HD2.

The rep said I could expect 7-12 mbps download in my area, and T-mobiles website says theoretically 21 mbps.
If you don't know what HSPA+ is... follow this link
HSPA+/3G Coverage | T-Mobile®
So this is supposedly faster than 4g.

I don't know if this is the proper way to check your download speed. But I went to Speakeasy - Speed Test in my phones internet browser and ran a download and upload test. Well i'm getting nowhere near 7 mbps. It's okay though, I use my internet on wifi mostly.

My results are below for my internet speeds, my phone is usually on E though, seems like I have little 3g reception. Post yours too, after running the test, thank you!!
ps...have wifi off when running the test, to make sure it is only picking up your 3g signal, and not actually testing your wifi signal(which is probably faster).


My Results:
Download: 0.50 Mbps
Upload: 0.10 Mbps

I live in a city that has HSPA+ already. Unfortunately, I get nowhere near the 7-12 mbps t-mobile said I would be getting.

Also my phone is 85 percent of the time running under Edge also.


not that great.... but it's still faster than Stupid sprint and the crappy evo

I downloaded the speedtest.net application and tested against the Houston server. I am in the Houston area, allegedly HSPA+ but my phone only shows connecting to HSDPA.

My speedtest came in at 4.06 Mbps down and 1.44 Mbps up. Ping at 73ms. Pretty amazing I'd say.

Default Speedtests

Ran the test from the browser (speakeasy.com) - and got 1.08 M down, .22 up.

Downloaded iNetwork (speedtest) app, and got 500K down...

Not very good in the big scheme of things - maybe due to browser, apps?

Don't worry the + system is only just rolling out and likely has few towers even in the areas that have it. Supposedly LA has it in some places, but in San Diego we won't for a while.

My 3G from both ATT (IPAD) and from TMobile on my Slide are pretty consistently in the 1 meg range which is very servicable. I travel a lot so that varies. In Turtle Bay (Hawaii N Shore) this weekend I only got Edge speeds from TMobile but was getting 3G speeds from ATT on the IPAD. So I left the phone alone. In Honolulu I get 3G from both ATT and Verizon and TMobile.

I have yet to get near a + tower, so don't have anything or place to report that yet but the folks that are reporting 4+ Mps speeds are making me look forward to that. Our processor will hold us back a bit, but I can't say the phone is very often my primary browser as I generally at least have my IPAD or Laptop (with Verizon MiFi 2200) close at hand.

The 1st result is Wifi the rest are HSPA


By the way there are no HSPA+ devices released for tmobile for the time being, however the HSPA+ network will improve speeds of HSPA devices, hence the 4-7Mbps speeds. not the 7-21Mbps speeds theoretically produced by HSPA+

Ya, after doing more recent research, seems like the MTS isn't an HSPA+ phone. I thought it was because 2 tmobile reps told me it was specifically HSPA+, along with the HTC HD2. Oh well.

SO how did you get those screen shots of your screen test, I wanna do that.

If you google "how to get screenshots of your android phone" there are some videos. Basically you have to install the android sdk, install the drivers for your phone have the java jdk installed then use ddms.bat, which is a debugger to take the screen shots.

I installed something called "ShootMe" from the market. You open it and it runs in background and then when you want to take a pic, you shake the phone. Says it requires root but works fine for mine.

Just so everyone knows those speeds are megabits not megabytes. I like to use the kB (kilobyte) setting not Mb (megabit) or kb (kilobit) when downloading content on a pc you usually see speed in kB or MB (megabyte) never in Mb or kb. So it may be a good idea to standardize our speeds. I vote that we use speeds in kB. But I've noticed some post in kb and some in Mb. kB is a more known measurement IMHO

I average 250 - 350 kB but can get as much as 600 - 700 kB (4.8 - 5.6 Mb). For anyone wondering there are 8 bits in a byte.

Last 2 tests (in kB)
237.8 dwn - 47.7 up (1.9 Mb dwn)
259.8 dwn - 52.6 up (2.1 Mb dwn)

Around 300 kB is pretty good it's like a full song dl in under half a min

Ya but t-mobile charges you by megabytes used. If you log into my t-mobile, and look at your data usuage its based on megabytes. No?

yes you are correct. tmo goes by MB (megabytes) for billing. That's kinda the point I'm making, with using bytes not bits! The speed test app dose not display MB, however. They display only Kb (kilobit), Mb (megabit), and KB (kilobyte), so the closest to MB is KB because all you need to do is divide the number of KB/s by a thousand and you will have the MB/s. I'm just saying folks should avoid using any "bit" measurements because it confuses less seasoned users that all. That's why some people see a reading of 3.5 Mb and run around saying the are getting 3.5 megs, which is true I guess but usually when you hear the term "meg" it is referring to megabytes and trust me no one here is getting 3.5 MB period!
