What is it with these awful upload speeds? I typically get speeds like 0.02, 0.04 Mbps. It's like that all times of the day and night although I live near a tower. I see many others do too. Is this by design and so will not be fixed? Is this some kind of bug they are trying to fix?
I am using a Nexus S. Things were fine and fast (at least usable) but now they're just horrendous. I can't even get the Speedtest app to complete -- it's THAT slow.
Yesterday at richmond hill 9:55 a.m. 8024 download 379 upload.

So at least for me it has actually improved.

I did a small mall tour today in Toronto (shopping... sigh).
First stop was Yorkdale, and speeds were awful: ping 578ms, DL 0.13Mbps and UL of 0.08Mbps, and this was outside the Wind store. Total garbage.
As reported, Eaton Centre has some kind of strange repeater system that's great. Finally I was getting ping 127ms, DL 1.8Mbps and UL 1.21Mbps.
Then up to Dufferin mall and then back to terrible again with a ping of 568, DL 0.10MBps and UL of 0.14Mbps.
All this on a Nexus S.
Below is my mediocre speed result, this is taken at work in Dundas & Yonge at 12PM.
While my screenshot shows full bars, I constantly lose signal in the GTA. In Mississauga, I move from my living room to my bedroom and lose signal for five minutes. Even at work, my office is by the window and I lose signal couple of times a day. Worse I had to purchase a gps unit because I had to pull to the side of the road a few times to wait for signal to get back for google maps to find a restaurant in Etobicoke. Streaming youtube or music? forget it either the stream doesnt start or stops half way and never resumes, even opening pics in facebook app takes a few minutes to load.
$40 plan might have been the "best" plan when I was still a student but after a year of frustrations I am switching back to the big 3 (shudder) just for signal and speed stability.
