Wireless can be affected by many things. I think thats an acceptable speed test too.

Other days you might get significantly higher, or even your location, weather, number of users on the tower, interference and lots of other factors can influence a speed test.

Hi chakkaradeep

You sent me a PM advising 684k down and 234k up is slow speed!

I have to ask what speed are you expecting?

Thanks John

Yes correct there is nothing wrong with that! There is only so much cell capacity/back haul to go round.

Use GPRS for a few days and see how far cellular data has come in a few years

The maximum speed for 3G is 384 Kbps down. HSDPA with vodem can be anywhere between this and 3.6 Mbps. As Tony says, lots of things can influence.

However the speedtest is to a server in Auckland with plenty of capacity. But where is this download coming from?

Are you sure the server where this download is coming from does not limit traffic? Are you sure it's not overloaded? Have you investigated this before blaming the network?

Thanks for the reply Mauricio :)

I was downloading Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Management Studio Express Edition from Microsoft. This is the download link.

I checked in my University Connection and I was downloading @ 175kbps

Universities have different connections to the Internet.

Just before a month, it wasnt like this. I was getting 150kbps download.I am not complaining, but asking, because many time here in Geekzone we have discussed about Vodem speed.

Cellular data speeds vary a lot, even on the same day.
