So I use Mobilicity, and while I love the calling plans, the data speeds that I have been getting are pretty miserable!
I live and work in downtown toronto, and the best download speed I get is ~0.2MBps with 0.05MBps being common.
I did look at some of the speeds posted here, but I would like to know from users the wind speeds I can expect if I switch. Would really appreciate inputs from users, especially the downtown area (king, queen, university avenue).
Also, I use a Nexus S, do phones matter for data speeds?
Thanks in advance!

It depends when you use it... during weekdays Wind's network is very slow.
Wellington/York @ 11:55 AM:
Download Speed: 583 kbps (72.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 64 kbps (8 KB/sec transfer rate)
If you come in at 5 AM that will be like 14 down 2 up
I remember a few years ago I streamed almost every game of World Cup on my Nexus 1 over Rogers (they had applied an unlimited data promo for 6 months). The same thing would be impossible at these speeds with Wind.
Unlimited calling canada(free fongo app) + unlimited texting(1.99 fongo app) + 10gb lte data plan(Bell $50 + tax) + Voicemail/caller(free fongo app) = $56.99!!
Can you make that image bigger. I can't see it. Thanks.

I can't seem to break 1.3 Mbps in Durham. Can anyone else confirm? I'm using a nexus one.
I've always had lousy up speeds but down and ping speeds are showing a definite trend upwards. This test was carried out a few days ago in Mississauga, near Cawthra and QEW at around 2:00 in the afternoon while tethered to my laptop with a 9790. I have no idea why it connected to the Kitchener server instead of Oakville or Toronto but this is still pretty representative of the speeds I'm getting.
