Where in Auckland are you based? From what I have seen those figures are quite average. XT can definitely go up higher in download and upload.

Over on the North Shore at the Moment.

It's a huge jump from Vodafone which is what i used to be on. Would hardly ever break 300k with them.

That download speed is ~2.5x the highest I've had here in Whakatane. I suspect that the issue is not XT, but Bluetooth limitations (as copying photos from the phone to PC doesn't seem to be any faster).

I can get 3.6Mbps very reliably on XT all over the North Shore and CBD.

I have a phone capable of 7.2Mbps, sure a lot of you guys do too. Has anyone ever broken into the 4, 5 or even 7 Mbps with XT?

Got to be pleased with that. Didnt't even know it could go that fast so suspected a glitch.

Maybe a bit more realistic...

And the final one.

Not bad all round really. Using a tethered Sony Ericsson C510a in Avonside CHCH

(apologies if I have cocked up the images - never done it before)
