    Over in the wealthy side of Oakville On I hit 5288/750 but we can't all live with the rich and famous. But I had to check if they had the faster speed, they do. Canadian cell providers are the pits but at least we get decent speed depending on location.

    You guys are lucky. Just tested mine.

    Location = Berwick, PA
    DL = 297 kbps (Test 2 = 790 kbps)
    UL = 423 kbps (Test 2 = 883 kbps)
    Server = Washington, DC

    Both tests were from the same spot at my desk. Weird...

    It thought I was in Kansas for some reason, so I could not test on a server within 1000 miles of my location. Depending on which server I tried, I got anywhere between 250kbps and 1100kbps download speeds. Not very useful unfortunately, but the interface is nice. Hopefully they'll update it so we have access to more test servers, or at least give the option to override the location if it's incorrect.

    I'm not confident that the test is very accurate. It really doesn't seem accurate over WiFI. I get slow speeds according to the test but for sure I'm faster than on 3G. We seem to have a fast network up here compared to the speeds I see so far down south but it can go all over the place. Stand next to a ritzy condo around here and the speeds vary between 5M and unusable especially at night.

    One thing is to hit the select server option if it doesn't pick one nearby.

    QR Code reading is not implemented in Shop Savvy. The creators wanted it to just be Shopping and product related so no QR code support.

    I've seen faster down on 3g, but I think the cell towers are trying to blow away tonight.
