    cant believe yours are that close. other threads on here show huge differences. ex: - my 2 wire - 1.00Mbps (got to love that) and dsl reports - 381 kbps

    First of all, many people reporting their speeds are not distinguishing if they are achieving their speeds using Blazer on the 700p, or via USB with a computer, or via BT. The highest score right now at dslreports.com/mspeed for Blazer on a 700p device is 398kbps, and that's on Verizon:

    Did you try to tether the 700p via USB to your computer to see what speeds you can get?

    There must be something really wrong with my setup.

    Could it be possible that I am on regular vision instead of power vision?

    I am just trying with the blazer browser right now. I get results in html mode on dslreports of about 50k to 90k, with about 2 seconds latency. It usally takes me several retrys in the browser before the test will run. It feels just like regular vision to me, or worse.

    I'm assuming that those of you using 2wire are using yours as a modem with a computer. I don't have a link for using 2wire with the PDA.

    I have used the web with my 650 in the same location I am right now with my 700, and it worked pretty well. This is not working nearly as well, and we all know how slow that is!

    hey curt,

    i don't know about you but anytime i use my laptop in a wireless scenario and i've only got 2 green bars...it's hit and miss on getting a solid connection to the web...yahoo will come up but more complex pages don't load...so yes, i'd say it has a lot to do with your signal strength, etc.....
    i believe i read about some "genuine" cell signal boosters for cars...maybe they make them for homes (these are electronically powered, not the stupid lameo stickers)

    hope this helps

    Are you using dslreports.com/mspeed? If so, I'm at a loss to explain why your results don't show up at all:

    None of these are your device, which should report as a Palm Blazer 4.5 device at 320x320.

    In fact, the Sprint 700p with the highest speed today is listed here at 162kbps:

    163 1.205s (200k) myvzw.com Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; PalmSource/Palm-D052; Blazer/4.5) 16;320x320

    Actually, this thread is complaining about Sprint's Powervision, and according to dslreports.com you have Verizon:

    182 0.484s (600k) myvzw.com Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; PalmSource/Palm-D052; Blazer/4.5) 16;320x320

    But did you try clearing your cache before the test, selecting 600k, then clicking the "click here" link as soon as it appears? If not, try it and let us know your results.....

    To update this thread, I was able to get better speeds, 200 to 300 k on my drive home. Also, at my home, I got pretty good speeds. However, this was all with nearly a max strength signal indication.

    I don't know about you guys, but I find in highly populated areas that the signal is rarely full strength.

    Once again, from my office this morning, getting less than 100 k.

    I just got 612.6, but that was from 2wire.com; there really is no way to know if that reading was accurate.

    Internet speed tests are wildly inaccurate; they're so dependent upon other factors. BroadbandReports has a lot of different testing sites (dslreports.com) but I get varying results from them as well.

    The bottom line, though, is that the 700p does great on the web, at least in my area. It's finally a useful web tool... I suspect video streaming is really going to take off on these devices.

    2 wire reports 800 to 1000 kbps here in the bay area (San Jose to San Francisco).

    I get around 120 to 250 on dslreports. just tried 2wire after this thread and got 650 then 750.... hmmm
  14. #34  
    Thats odd, on dsl reports i normally get 425+ kb/s in Miami, for some reason my results never show up. On 2wire i got around 1.2 mb/s, there is no reason to get under 100 kb/s on powervison unless something is serioulsy wrong.

    Yeah, I just got 1.04Mbps using the Speep Meter in 2wire, I think that's way too high. DSLReports Speed Test has always been pretty accurate, in my opinon.

    I'm on the PAM (Phone As Modem) plan with Sprint on my 700P and surfing right now via Bluetooth - no disappointment here! I'm very impressed. I keep my phone in my bag while I sit back and surf without having to pay for WiFi. I can finally break my Starbucks $10 a day WiFi habit! More money for lattes!
