October 2011 3G Speed Tests



Slow in 225

@sbcglobal.net
We've seen great improvements this month! It's only taken 16 months of non-stop calls, trouble tickets, upgrade projects... maybe they're finally doing some backhaul upgrades. I can actually get over 100 kbps some days in parts of town! I can actually use Pandora without force roaming to Verizon like the past year! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

This is more like it. Sitting in the same spot at almost the same time.

For the last week, speed has sucked. I can get .5Mb/s only in the evening, off-peak times. On-peak times are half that if I'm lucky. This is getting old.

Service has died, I might have to leave Millenicom because I just can't get an upload over 0.03Mbps in the day. Everything on my end if fine, nothing I can do.

Well it's a shame to say the least. Now I have to find my tower, which is not a Sprint owned tower, it's a tower that sprint uses. Send that number to Millenicom, maybe Sprint will upgrade it seeing as they are going to have to as the speeds are below advertised speeds.

Well last night I got UPLOADS like 0.83Mbps, 0.73Mbps and 0.60Mbps. Never seen speeds like that. So I am guessing they were false tests, but never had 5 test in a row show uploads that fast. Maybe they are working on the tower. Speculation again.

Airlink router is out performing anything seen on my MBR-1000.



In my 1.5 years with the MBR-1000 I have never hit a 0.52Mbps, I never got anything above 0.46Mbps. So in the first days with the Airlink router I got above that 0.46Mbps all the time. I was having so many issues with the MBR-1000:

- Client in DMZ not having an Open Nat
- UPnP function never worked
- Speed Fluctuation was all over the place
- Not very good Wifi range(even on N)
- Hangs with the DNS

The Airlink has fixed all of this. I can honestly say I have had the best 3G service ever since I stopped using the MBR-1000. I paid $180 for the MBR-1000 and $60 for the airlink. I was hesitant when thinking about getting rid of the MBR-1000 because of what I paid and all the features, but now I am so happy with my connection. I have not had any issues with what I have listed above. I recommend it!

Speakeasy:

Upload Speed: 576 kbps (72 KB/sec transfer rate)

I am exceeding 1.544Mbps. I wonder if I am picking up a different tower. Today I hit an upload speed of 0.79Mbps on my iPod. But mostly I am seeing single T-1 line speeds. Makes me wonder.

Not bad on my speeds, wish they would bring 4G to my area.

Wish they would bring 3G to mine. Or at least something that resembles it.
