Default Bold 3G Speed

Please Login to Remove!

I've been trying to see how fast the 3G network is on my Bold. Side by side with a friends 8820, I don't notice much of a difference getting to web pages. I searched BBF but didn't find anything.

Reading on the net, it seems the browser based speed tests aren't accurate because the BB uses a proxy and strips away some data. Got that from a couple different sites.

So I downloaded a program from made for the BB but the speeds I'm seeing are 250-300k much less than expected. The only other thing I came up with is to tether the Bold and use the PC to do a speed test.

Just wanted to know what others are doing to track speed.
