Shocking Vodafone speed test

Found 8th Jan 2015
Just bought a Samsung Galaxy S5 from Vodafone and done a speed test on my phone using mobile data and got shocking results.

Ping - 625ms
Download - 0.04Mbps
Upload - 0.02Mbps

Is there any way to improve these speeds?

Yes.
01. Don't panic.
02. Move to an area with a stronger signal and try again.

I'm not joking, that is better than my home broadband with BT!

WOW. that's not even usable, you should leave if your speeds are that low.

yeah, isn't 0.04mbps the same as 40kb, which is slower than dial up? or maybe my math is out the window

besides, thats the beauty of PAYG phones. Unlock and put in the SIM you want

But how may people are using the same cell tower? That's the factor that has the most impact...

Try EE, 3 bar signal and get 60meg, only ever had full signal once and that was at the hospital got 130mbps

My mistake, i was thinking of 0.40mbps and 0.20mbps

I get 5mb on Three at home but in the local town centre I get 15mb but using the free EE sim card posted with 100gb of 4g data I get 16mb at home. Goes to show!
