    Everyone says how much faster other networks r "so" much faster. I'd like to test that theory.
    I hav tmobile. I downloaded a full web of Treonauts.com using Blazer. All pics loaded everything.
    I did 3 tests.
    1. 2 min 50 second
    2. 2 min 55 seconds
    3. 2 min 40 seconds

    I'd like to hear what other networks speed are.

    I'm with Sprint. My results are as follows:

    1. 1 minute and 53 seconds

    2. 1 minute and 47 seconds

    3. 1 minute and 54 seconds

    I think CDMA networks are faster, but they don't have the ability to handle voice and data at the same time like GSM networks do.
    Why are ringtones always such a big issue? Don't people realize that they're obnoxious!? And why the Nintendo 'Wii'? What th-!?

    I got Verizon (EV-DO on a 700w; so it's not exactly what your looking for.)

    1. 0min 57seconds [Full signal strength]

    2. UNKNOWN [Treo browser stalled completely.]

    3. 1min 28seconds [2bars, inside the hosue]

    Now let me point out one thing, youd get a better idea of download speed if you had us download a file. The time it takes the webpage to complete also depends on how fast the machine can render it. If you tether the treo to your computer, you'd surely get better results than 2min 40sec. That homepage is rather large (for a pda at least) so the lack of power on a handheld starts to become a bottleneck in this test.

    Cingular, 2:15s.
    I've never owned a "regular" phone, and never will.

    Handspring Visorphone, Handspring Treo 180, Handspring Treo 600, PalmOne Treo 650....

    If you disable Javascript in Blazer, you can save anywhere from 10-40% on load time. I think this is what we are seeing here.

    not to mention the contents of a webpage can change, making the test cases different depending on time of download.

    this may be a more accurate test, and it times it for you.
