Ok here we go - how can I get a good idea what speed my new "3" usb broadband modem is connecting at.
i have just taken one of these out for my Dad and this is what I have found
Installed and it says 3.6Mbps - so is this a 3.g meg connection?
According to the 3 shop we are in a Turbo enabled network.
If I run two laptops side by side and use the follwing sites I get the follwing resultshttp://www.cnet.co.uk/misc/speedtest/
ADSL - 1.7Mbps
3 USB - 69khttp://speedtest.net/
ADSL - 2.0 Mbps
3 USB - 296kbpshttp://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/
ADSL - 1.7 Mbps
3 USB - 219kbps
So are these sites reliable with mobile 3G broadband?
But if I download say winrar from download.com that is a 1.15MB file the times are similar
ADSL - 1.05 min
3 USB - 1.18 mins
but the 3 usb does feel much slower
am i barking up the wrong tree or am I missing something here or what
what other sites are good to test real downloads on?
