    SPEED TEST verizon vs cingular

    Advertisement



    head to head. i was with a freind of mine. he has an 8703e i have the 8800. both had full survice and i was bored so i did some speed tests.
    i sent an email simultaniously to both devices from a pc. result- the 8800 got the email in 4 minutes the verizon less then a minute. tried it 3 times same result each time.
    heres the interesting one. they say evdo faster then edge. i tried loading 3 diff web sites from each device simultaniously. cnet,nytimes,myspace. each time the 8800 uploaded it about 5-10 seconds faster. and on cnet. the 8703 device timed out.
    let me know what you think of this. and if you switched from verizon to cing. which was faster to you?

    Speed on a handheld is a function of many variables. The primary one is the connection, next the processor and then memory. Email is a function the poll process, the network, the connection and the servers you route via and to.

    Too many variables plus they are were not the same BB.

    All things being equal, the Verizon EVDO is significantly faster than Cingular's EDGE. Now, when Cingular completes their roll out of their 3G service, that will be a different story.

    Interesting test, but I think that it all has to do with where you are located.

    There is a site...I think www.pcpitstop.com that you can go to to test your devices true speed.

    Connection speed comparison between EVDO and EDGE SHOULD be like comparing night and day!..

    EV-DO advertised as up to 1.2 Mbps, average in the 700 kbps range. EDGE fastest speed is 235 Kbps with the average between 50-70 kbps.

    As I've said over and over and over to those griping about the lack of 3G on a BB -- it's a moot point. Page rendering is the current bottleneck so your network speed is pretty much irrelevant unless you're tethering and bypassing the processor on the BB.

    EVDO Rev A will bring speed to about 800kbps which is not a great difference but upload near 400kbps
    EVDO Rev B which Telus should release at the end of the year is suppose to be around 4mbps

    I agree wholeheartedly. No sense waiting for speed on any handheld in my opinion. It ain't gonna happen soon.
