Hi

I am wondering why the XT upload speeds are seem slow on 3G.  When I am uploading e-mail attachments it seems quite slow, downloading is fine.  I have also done a few speed tests and the upload is always below 100kb/s.  My friend is on vodafone and his upload speeds are 200kb/s - 250kb/s.

What sort of device are you using? Does it support HSUPA?

Both of us using iPhones, so no. I thought normal 3g upload speeds should be more than 90kbits/s

Upload on release 99 should average around 200 - 300k under good radio conditions

The iPhone doesn't do HSUPA. If you need faster speeds a HSUPA capable device will easily give you 1Mbps + speeds on Vodafone and XT, lots of my testing has given pretty constant speeds in the ~1.5Mbps vicinity.
