    Could someone go to cnn.com on their blazer and tell me how fast you can download the page.
    I't taking me normally 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 minutes on average, with blazer set on highest color (slowest).

    This seems slow to me and i just want to compare with others to make sure this is normal.

    Please post it Thank You!

    It takes me only about 20-30 seconds... But are you sure you're downloading the mobile version of CNN?

    The non-mobile version takes absolutely forever as to be expected...

    Also, checkout this article regarding download speeds on your Treo 300. Bmeter is a nice utility that allows you the abilty to measure you data transfer speeds....

    I typed in URL cnn.com and the page took 3.5 minutes to download approx 110K of data. That's in bytes downloaded.
    That comes out to be 4.19 k bits/ sec. That's too slow.

    I was just using cnn.com, not the wirelesss cnn. This is kind of funny why it is so slow because i downloaded the free trial of the new PDAnet
    http://www.junefabrics.com/palmnet/
    and can pull in cnn.com on my PC from my treo in less than 1 minute i also did the cnet/msn modem speed test on it and it was running 85-90 k

    You would think that blazer could pull in the web pages faster than the Pdanet hook up to my pc.

    I wonder if i have something set wrong or if this is just the way it works. Something just doesn't make sense.

    If anyone has some suggestions or more cnn.com download speed test times that would be helpful.

    I did download Bmeter and i'm right in there with the average.

    The primary reasons that Blazer "downloads" the page so slowly are not related to the speed of the data connection -- but rather the facts that Blazer cannot render complex pages quickly, especially when using the pokey 33mHz processor in the Treo, and that the pages are coming through a proxy server that is not known for its blazing speed (no pun intended). As a consequence, pages will generally be displayed much more quickly on a PC using the Treo as a modem.

    Curtiscarmack is exactly right! The reason for the slow rendering of blazer is primarily due to the processor in the Treo itself, not the modem speed. That is one of the reasons why a faster OS 5.x based ARM proc in the next gen Treo is sooo important, among other factors...
