    PCWorld 3G Wireless performance Test

    From: AT&T Roars Back in PCWorld?s Second 3G Wireless Performance Test - PCWorld



    It's a large article, but there's some decent info there. ATT wins most of the tests. As expected, TMobile results vary largly based on location, but a slow upload speed was generally noticed.
    Rooted Nexus One

    This Portland number matches my previous results. But in the last week or so, I'm seeing dl speeds in the 1700-1900 range around town. Ul speeds are in the 300-500 range.

    I never got that high speed in Chicago with AT&T. I was lucky to get 800 with iPhone 3G... 1500 result they got is almost double up!

    Probably deadline kept them from getting the NYC new numbers.

    I've not read the report, but Philadelphia was a beta site since at least Sept 2009. Not sure why they didn't try Philadelphia.

    Didn't Portland get the new backbone upgrade recently?
