    Speed test on the BlackBerry

    Advertisement



    Has anyone found any bandwidth speed tests that can be run on the BlackBerry itself? Every website I find that works on a PC won't run on the blackberry.

    Yeah i just tried it and it works. I did a 1MB file and got 1917kbit/sec with .475s latency. I don't really understand how it can be that fast, so it may be inaccurate.

    Run the speed test in Opera. I get ~180kbps with T-Mobile.

    Re: Speed test on the BlackBerry

    I tired the test with the BB brower, it said it does not support it and when I went ahead anyways it said "too fast" like others above said.

    I also tried it with OperaMini 3 and tried all the file sizes as it kept saying "to fast and choose a larger file size" and it still kept saying "too fast choose larger". There were no more files larger so I could not test.

    So with both browers and all the file sizes I have no results.

    Is Opera set to use HTTP or Soket?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Mine is set to socket. That's the way the auto setup set it.
