Dslreports.com Speed Test for Mobile Devices

One of the interesting developments that came with the Apple iPhone launch was that AT&T Wireless bumped up the EDGE downstream speed just before the iPhone launched. If you want to find out what your smartphone downstream throughput is, try out DSLreports’ Mobile Speed Test found at:

The results below are from a Pocket PC Phone Edition on a 802.11b WiFi connection. My  T-Mobile EDGE speed test returned a respectable (for EDGE) 115Kbps. I suggest using one of the larger download payloads (200 or 600Kb) if you have an unlimited data plan. My Phone Edition’s browser locked up with the 1MB test payload.
