Device : Vodem
Download : 1450kbps
Upload : 340kbps
Time : 6:30am
Location : Wellington, about 300m east of the site at the Strathmore pub.

Whilst the reliability of my connection leaves a bit to be desired, I have always been very happy with its performance.

To truely compare latency times and speeds it would also be handy to see the APN you're using as well.

Ping showing here is wake up from dormancy and also with the example from Alasta

Speedtest.net is not the best for showing pings

I would use CMD Prompt and run a ping to a NZ server

What is the maximum speed your Bluetooth dongle supports? One of the big limitations with using Bluetooth is that many devices (and dongles) still impose a UART speed restriction of 115.2k

Bluetooth 2.0 built in on both so no issues (max 2.1 Mbit/s?).

U'd think right in princes wharf you'd be able to hit the W880's peak of around 384kb/s
