    In light of the threads below that claim that perhaps Cingular has done the ol' bait and switch on us and is slowing down our data, I thought we should start our own Cingular thread for data speed.

    Put the browser and the City in your results (since Xiino results are skewed).

    I just did it in Los Angeles with Blazer on a 100kb test,

    41 kbit/sec
    3.132s latency
    41.312s d/l time
    1. HTC Touch Dual Neon 300, Stock Rom
    2. AT&T Tilt (Refurb) with DK.8 Rom (collecting dust)

    San Jose, CA
    18kbps, best out of 10 tests

    Update, 2:00pm Thurs 3/24:
    Back to 20kbps and below Thursday evening.

    This is nowhere near the 100kbps I was getting 2 weeks ago.
    Method: Blazer testing on
    PS. Doesn't this thread belong in US GSM where the other threads related to this topic are located?

    You should probably list the testing method to ensure that the statistics you get out are consistent across all the people reporting.

    Where are you doing the speed tests? What site?

    By the way, if you look at the "results today" link (, you can get all this information without asking people to post it here. It's all there - kbps, latency, test size, service provider (domain), and browser (user agent).

    Well, okay, it doesn't tell you the geographic market.

    You'll have to scroll down a bit to get the Cingular numbers, past all the artificially inflated Xiino numbers, and past the people who are using Verizon and have EVDO. It looks like today's GPRS/EDGE reigning champion is actually an ATT wireless customer who scored a 181 on the 600k test.

    When I first got my Treo 650 I was getting 140kbps-160kbps consistently on Cingular.

    I might add that T-Mobile users are also complaining about the exact same thing (US GSM category,) the data rates on GPRS have slowed to a crawl in California. If TMo and Cingular still share equipment in Cali then this could mean something.

    I know this is a Cingular thread, but just for the sake of comparison, here are my test results:
    Location: New Delhi, India
    Service Provider: Hutch
    Service: Edge/GPRS
    Time 4:30AM (Very little, if any load on network)

    100k test (w/ 4 Bars) Test done 10 times.

    The best:
    94 kbit/sec
    2.021s latency
    10.281s d/l time

    The worst:
    69 kbit/sec
    2.084s latency
    13.347s d/l time

    200k test (w/ 4 Bars) Test done 10 times.

    The best:
    120 kbit/sec
    1.791s latency
    15.038s d/l time

    The worst:
    74 kbit/sec
    1.797s latency
    23.212s d/l time

    600k test (w/ 4 Bars) Test done 5 times.

    The best:
    145 kbit/sec
    3.695s latency
    34.726s d/l time

    The worst:
    73 kbit/sec
    1.85s latency
    67.25s d/l time

    So are these results good or poor, specially considering the time the tests were done? To me personally Edge does not seem to be any faster than plain old GPRS. Atleast I cannot tell much difference between my Treo 600 and Treo 650 in real world usage at normal times during the day.

    39 kbit/s
    2.762s latency
    23.2s d/l time for 100k test, 4 bars of signal

    I'm using a GSM unlocked (FW 1.15) on Cingular's mediaworks plan. This is my second treo 650, both have never had higher than a 40kb/s score. Has anyone else in NY been able to do faster? I've called Cingular asking to reregister, but they claim that the slow speeds are a known issue they are working on...

    Forgive the stupid question but I've never seen 5 bars on my signal strength indicator ever (ATTWS). Are you sure the max is 5 bars and not 4?
