^ Mobile speed test, lemmi know if anyone gets it to work.

However besides that they list averages for each mobile network. At the bottom you should see links for 'fastest today" and "fastest" for all time averages.

tmodns.net avg is 70.7kbps, which sadly is next to last.

When I access this site it says it doesn't work with BBs. The best way is to tether it and go to speakeasy from your PC. I recollect that others were saying a good connection speed was 170 kbps.

You would think so, but if there would be a difference I think it would be very small

When connected to my laptop, like it is now, I usually get around 122kbps when I test it on Speakeasy - Speed Test

I can VPN into my corporate network and run PCAnywhere to my office PC with no problem.
