try this site for your actual speed
I have had T-Mobile's Unlimited, Data-Only Plan for a few months now. I have nothing but positive things to say about it. I am connected to my laptop via a PCMCIA adapter I am using w/ my CF Modem I got from: http://www.convergentech.com
An AWESOME device to say the least!
I have been connected now for, 21 hours, 7 mins and 8 seconds now with NO interuptions in service! Amazing...at least to me
My question is this... EVERY time I have connected to the T-Mobile Network, it tells me that it connects at 115.2 Kbps.
I was looking at a conversion chart and it looks like 115.2 Kbps is FASTER then a 56k line. Is that true? The speed is VERY impressive to me. I know the speeds depend on Voice over Data, but I ALWAYS connect at 115.2 Kbps.
What have others experienced, connection spees wise?
I wasn't sure if 115.2 Kbps was s STANDARD speed that the service either always DISPLAYED or connected with.
115.2 is most likely what it is configured to connect at in your settings. It doesn't mean you will acheive this speed. You can compare your speed with other people by going to http://www.dslreports.com/stest
After your test is complete, it will compare you to other people in your area.
The 115K speed you are seeing is the speed at which the modem is talking to the computer, not the speed at which the modem is talking to the network.
GPRS systems are limited to 48Kbps speeds, and 30 to 40Kbps speeds are the most typical. I was able today to pull email down at about 38Kbps, so the figures I was given seem to be reasonable.
