First tests on an unloaded network. Looks like it is rate limited.
Big advantage over UMTS. Approx 3.1 times faster on download and 2 times faster on upload.
Big improvement on the ping test to Geekzone.
Minimum=138ms, Maximum=186ms, Average=155ms
Approx 100ms better than UMTS.
Waking out or dormancy takes 4000ms which is the same as UMTS.

Hmm, funny, I saw lower pings when I looked at HSDPA in Auckland. It'd be better if you pinged the nearest hop on the network instead of Geekzone...

...they will if they use VOIP.

We're not average users though... it's just easier to compare latency if you only have a small bit of network to take into account. :)

Latency is the most important thing for me!
