    "The up side to being the first kid on your block with an HSPA+ device? You get stupidly mad speeds on the T-Mobile G2. This comes not from our boy Jeremy Sikora's G2, but from an anonymous tipster (geographically unknown as well as anonymous in name), so you can argue the validity all you want. And, no, it's not like the browser's going to be processing pages at that speed. But downloads, well, that's another story. Have at it, folks. Thanks, anonymous!"

    mobilespeedtest.com is not reliable especially you use 3M or higher. I even got 103Mbps using 7M file.

    MobileSpeedTest.com seems to measure their speeds in kilobits per second instead of kilobytes.

    The original picture in this thread is only going at 1.8 Mb/s (I get those speeds on my Nexus One) when compared to celtusaz's picture above.

    :(

    Dude, nobody measures bandwidth in bytes. Dunno why, I think it's a little misleading; case in point, you were mislead to believe you get 1.8 MB/s on an N1. If you really think that, go try downloading a 100 MB file. It's going to take you a lot longer than 56 seconds. Around eight times longer, I'd wager.

    I believe you misread what I wrote. I wrote 1.8 Mb/s, not MB/s.

    I agree, big difference there. lol.

    21Mb/s = T-Mobile's HSPA+ Network (Theoretical max)
    8.21Mb/s = Cletusaz (or someone else's) G2 speed.
    1.8Mb/s = My Nexus One speed.

    For the record, the 8.21Mb/s is someone else's. I average right around 2Mb/s in a non HSPA+ market on a mytouch slide. Fact is, tmobiles network is pretty much blazing fast right now, even when downloading music and movies, and im enjoying the shit out of it :).

    I suspect that the g2 shows "H" even when connected to the standard HSPA (as opposed to HSPA+) network. That would explain the slow test results and seems pretty likely to me.

    Have any of you g2 owners ever seen your phone display "3g"?

    Cieling fan, grats on your speeds! Nearly 7MB in less than 6 seconds is very impressive! Mind if I ask you what city you live in?

    My G2 has been connected to H, G, and E. I didn't think to run a speed test when I had H, but it was crazy fast. Almost like Wifi.

    Maybe the H speed drops with distance to the tower or something?

    I think it says right in the start guide it comes with that the phone will show H for 3g, HSPA and HSPA+.

    I think this might be leading to some confusion with users believing they are attached to the HSPA+ network when in fact they are connected to 3g (HSPA).

    It turns out my market is now HSPA plus, it was just announced today. Here is a test i ran on my mytouch slide after reading the announcement. [​IMG]
    Wish i had a g2 to test lol.

    yeah H is HSPA and HSPA+
    E obviously is EDGE
    G is GPRS (idiots in tech support tried telling me G was "3G, not sure why they dropped the 3" he said)

    Just a small warning, most test sees you are on a mobile phone and give you a very small file to download for the test. A 10Kb file, will not give you a full picture. If you really want to test your connection, use a 30mb file, and see how long it takes to download. Oh, with hspa+ no testing it at 2am, that is not fair.
