In a few weeks my contract with Vodafone is expiring. This coincides with the (suspected) release of the iPhone 4G.
My iPad is using Telstra Next-G for mobile coverage, so I used the SpeedTest iPhone application to check each carrier’s connectivity from my office.
Each test was run once, so the results might vary if I used actual science and statistics to even things out, but that doesn’t reflect my real-life usage, so I opted for the “one chance to impress me” approach.
|Telstra||1429 kbps||252 kbps|
|Vodafone||946 kbps||103 kbps|
As you can see, Telstra’s network was about 1.5x faster downloading, and 2.5x faster uploading. Certainly, they’re different devices, but I think it’s comparable.
I just wish Telstra wasn’t, well, Telstra.
