Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

Today i got interested how fast my sprint evdo connection really is(i am using wunderradio daily on commute and pocket live tv about once a week).

After searching this forum i could not find much info on it so i searched google for bandwidth test meter. My favorite sites for testing home are
1) http://www.speedtest.net/
2) http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

unfotunatly both of them require flash 8 and neither opera nor PIE does not seem to support it for me. I found this that worked:

www.dslreports.com/mspeed - i got dissapointing 412kbit/sec (on 1mb test file), after connecting to home WIFI i cannot test with that site since it tells me "unstable/too fast a result-choose larger file" but biggest file is 1mb

I am using rstg_Raph_Rho_v2.R1c.02 ROM (.-.. RSTG Roms - Rhodium v2.0 v23017.R1d.09 FuzeBerry II WM6.5 8/30/09).

Are there any tweaks/tricks to speed this up, the phone at the time of testing was showing EV (not 1x)

Found this fix - Improve Wi-Fi Speed! but it seems thats its for WIFI only.

What are your results? Dont forget to post the ROM you using.
Anyone have different websites/ways to test the speed on t pro?

Re: Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

found another site: http://reviews.cnet.com/internet-speed-test/ on that one i get 1020Kbps while on WIFI and 272Kbps on EVDO

After applying tweak(Improve Wi-Fi Speed!) and softreset i get 370.9 Kbps(EVDO) and 2040 Kbps(fix really works!)

Or you can add the internet tethering cab and connect it to a laptop and test the speed using the laptop. That's what I did, you can see my speeds in my signature below. Another route is www.mobilespeedtest.com.

Re: Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

Using PIE6 i got the results in my sig (Sprint results, not the Optonline one). There seems to be a huge amount of latency on that test, which may be related to using the newest (and possibly buggy) version of Pocket Internet Explorer.

Re: Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

I un the test on dslreprts.com and i get a bunch of jeberish.... I run it under mobilespeedtest.net, I get a please wait, transferring 512KB, but it just stays on that screen. None of these are working.

Running mightyROM 4.16 and Sprint 1.11 radio. I have seen huge difference in speed, want to see it on a test though...

I have used this for years you have to use the Simple Moble Speed Test and sometimes if you speed is to fast it will ask you to use a larger file and will give you a choose of files http://www.dslreports.com/mspeed?jisok=1

Re: Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

Question, the cab for tweaking wi-fi connection, is that gonna make my EVDO speed faster aswell?

Re: Bandwidth speed test with sprint EVDO(post yours). Internet speed

Here's a site i use for mobile speed tests. What's nice about this one, is that is lets you test your upload speed also. http://performance.toast.net/ I've used it with both pie, iris 1.16, and opera 8.65 on my Touch Pro. Lots of options, like being able to choose the file to upload, and which server you'd like to use, etc..
