    From facebook:

    I'm in the middle of nowhere with no service on AT&T so I connected to my friends Droid via wifi and it's running faster than if I had full 3g. What's wrong with this picture

    AT&T claims they have the fastest 3G, and while it may be true on paper, the 3G on my Droid seems infinitely faster than my old iPhone.

    ATT: fastest 3G network*

    *in a very small area that you probably aren't in.


    If you go to att.com try to find the national 3g coverage map. Either they removed it completely or at least made it very hard to find.

    AT&T Coverage Viewer <<< Coverage viewer for AT&T ... to see real 3G coverage, you have to put in a zip code and zoom all the way out...

    I have a Droid and my roommate has an iPhone 3GS. We've tested our 3G bandwidth using the Speedtest.net app in a bunch of different places around San Diego and mine is always faster - sometimes up to 10x as fast.

    At home I get 1.8mbps down, 600kbps up. He gets 350kbps down and about 60kbps up.

    The first time we compared speeds at home they were about the same - 1.5mbps down. Turns out he was using Wifi. My Wifi speed from his room was 7mbps.
