Default 527.4 kbps on EDGE?

Please Login to Remove!

This was tested through CNET's Bandwidth test. I was reading through the forums, and I was wondering if this was accurate for an 8700c on Cingular EDGE. I am in Russellville, Arkansas. If not, then where can I test to get an accurate result?

I just did 111 Mbps of my lowly 7250 on EVDO, not bad I would say. (2Wire)

I just did the mobile speed test on DSL Reports, and ended up with the following:

600kb Test
- 387 kbit/sec
- 13.503s latency
- 13.871s download time

Not too bad. I used the Internet Browser on my 8700c, and I am with Cingular BIS in Metro Atlanta.

What browser settings do I need for the Internet Browser for DSL Reports? I try, and it says, my 8700c doesn't support it.

which test are you using? I think you need to use the mobile version of the site on the BB. www.dslreports.com/mtest

Also, the speed test is not accurate if you are on a BES and using the MDS browser. This is because its reporting the speed of your BES's connection, not your BB's

I keep getting "unstable/too fast a result (1.62s) please choose a larger file" and that is with the largest file.

At least my 7250 does not support the java applets that dlsrequires to do the test that is why I use 2Wire.

Sorry but even with the standard EDGE Class 10 or Nokia's proprietory Class 11 devices (only 2); this is beyond EDGE live capabilty. UNLESS > you're the ABSOLUTE only one hogging ALL 8 Cells in One Site in a given geographical area. .. and sinces its public for everyone to use, not likely.

Try the regular DSL reports like you did and due a real test via USB connected 8700 to the desktop and run the same test .... you'll find that although the latency doesnt change too drastically, the throughput will drop.
This method is more accurate time & time trialed again.
