o2 speeds on phone


[link to this post]
 
Hi i currently have a HTC HD7 with HSDPA 7.2 HSUPA 2 Mbps speeds i get on average about 3.2 meg some times 4 more aless always full 2 up when ever i use my phones network.

Im getting a Samsung galaxy S 2 either the end of the week or next week this phone supports HSDPA, 21 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.76 Mbps.

My question is, is mobile broadband a bit like ADSL vs ADSL2+ in the sense that because the phone supports the higher speeds will it go faster. Or is it basically even though the phone supports is your still stuck with the speeds.

I know on three that people have been experiencing a lot better speeds on the phones/dongles that support the faster speed but i dont know about o2.

Thanks for any help

Ash

Throughput will probably be the same. Capacity is key.
