Juat a bit ago, I did a test on this site you keep mentioning. I pulled a supposed 675k. I stood in the same place less than 10 seconds later and did a speedtest with the app from the android market, and it says I was pulling almost 2 mbps. I just don't trust that site for good results.

@austin420 there's no ookla app yet (don't know what's taking them) but I also use an app called bandwidth and the results I get are nearly identical, i also use a dslreports test and it comes out near the same as well.

Re: Why should I stay with Sprint?

that's what I mean, they do match up, pretty well too. The ookla app on the android port and using mobilespeed test in WM

I can post screenshots if you'd like but it would have to be later since I'm sleeping soon :S

My screenshots above show a huuuggge diff. And they were taken 2 min apart sitting at my desk. 100Kbps to 1.8Mbps is an 1800 percent diffrence.
Using a browser speedtests when there are quality apps available is like going back to the beating rocks together like a caveman.

Re: Why should I stay with Sprint?

guess I'm up a bit late tonight lol but here's my speeds

The mobilespeedtest was in WM using IE browser, the other one is ookla's app on android port

here's the pictures of them just now, you can see the time in both are about 10 minutes apart (the time it took to boot into android and all.

and yes i did scratch out my gps location to be safe lol, anyways the speeds match the speed I got from earlier this month that I have in my sig

edit: my post from earlier about them matching wasn't meant to be to your post I didnt see a second page when I posted that lol

u have to do at least the 2mb test to get an accurate reading. That's why it shows that difference. And as far as wp7 not having any appeal u must be deeply blind because even USA Today and time magazine have now recognized WP.
