    754kbps here using dslreports 1mb download. Only 2 bars showing on the meter. I'm happy.

    Getting between 950kbit/sec and over 1Mb using the 600k and 1MB tests on dslreports...

    However, I also have tweaks2k2...I wonder if that has something to do with it....

    I'm getting 443kbit/sec here in Sterling, VA.

    IF this is a treo 700wx specific problem, why did it work perfectly before and now it's the only device affected?
    Could it be that the 700wx carries a REV.A chip? And the speeds are fluctuating only on the 700wx because of all the upgrades? The plot thickens... hehehehe

    No, the 700wx doesn't have a Rev.A chip. It's been confirmed.

    actually, the closest thing I ever heard about a "confirmation" came from Bearxor (over at SU, pdaphonehome, ppcgeeks) who said he opened it up and saw it wasn't a MSM7500 chipset.

    as far as I know though, we don't know exactly what chipset it has (probably the msm6500) but I have yet to see photographic or "official" documentation saying what exactly is in there. anyone have more info?

    Hey, Im new here.
    But what HA Address you guys using?
    I had a treo 700p 20 days ago and I was getting 2 mbps. BTW, im from Puerto Rico.
    Then I switch to wx and the best ive done is like 770 kbps.

    it is IMPOSSIBLE on a Rev 0 device to get sustained speeds of 2mbps.

    not possible.

    technically it is possible to get a burst speed of that but that is hardly an accurate measurement of your speed. 800 kbps is pretty much the limit. all else is hogwash.

    ok here are my test so you can see what im talking about.




    By the way how do I know the rev of my device.

    Let's not confuse two things:

    There are Hardware Revisions. First one is always "A", then "B", etc. That's when the OEM changes things like type of keyboard, new screen, fix some wiring, etc.

    Currently all 700p, w's and wx's are Revision A.

    Then there is EvDO, the network. Currently Sprint and Verizion are Revision 0. Sprint is getting ready to launch Revsion A soon (though no devices are out yet besides data cards). There is also a Revision B in the works though Sprint might skip it and go for WiMAX.

    Re: your speeds. Did you happen to use Opera Mini on your 700p by chance?

    The fact is, despite what those numbers say it is not possible to get those speeds. It's like saying a VW Bug was clocked at doing 240mph.

    It just can't happen b/c EvDo is not capable of those speeds, regardless of your device.

    Thanks for the explanation.
    No I didnt use opera mini. I just use the blazer browser.
    I dont know how I got those speeds. But my evdo was really fast and it wasnt one time. I test multiple times, I was amazed. Download things, etc.

    I just wanted to ask someone who knows better than I do.

    NP. This stuff is certainly not a science as far as reliablity.

    Case in point, I too got 2mbps on EvDo on my 6700.



    But that's b/c 2wire uses a weird system for measuring speed. If I went and used DSLReports, it would have been around 600kbps.

    Here are some stats though to put in persepective:

    Sprint


    Download Performance
    Entries: 147
    Average: 622Kbps
    Median: 557Kbps
    Peak: 1553Kbps (Rev A tests omitted)
    >1Mbps: 17% of tests
    >600Kbps: 43%
    <400Kbps: 24%
    Std Deviation: 314Kbps
    Upld Avg: 72Kbps

    Nice
    I think I saw those stats on other forum.

    Does it matter what HA Addresses im using or not?
    Im from Puerto Rico and I think Im using the HA for Virginia.

    Also I changed the dns servers and notice a little bit more responsive.

    Excuse my bad english.

    That I don't know. I'm not aware of people in the WM5 community changing their HA addresses or experimenting with those types of mods.
