Hi everyone, I have conducted a repeat speed test for Dunedin locations using an iPhone 3G after hearing of changes made to the backhaul of Vodafone 3G which should improve speeds.

The results of the test suggest that regardless of any improvement in speeds (it was hard to compare because of inaccurate data from the first test last August), XT is still clearly ahead when it comes to raw speed.

There may be any number of reasons for this (including an undisclosed number of XT users shifting to Vodafone for their voice and data), and I would welcome your thoughts and any corrections in my data or conclusions.

Check out my blog post below which summarises the results and links to the full report:

iPhone 3G is STILL faster in more Dunedin places on Telecom XT
