Three MiFi versus O2 iPhone 4 Hotspot


[link to this post]
 
I must be hardcore to think about using Three again after the last experience but I decided to give them another go. After a boring 45 minutes in the Three store going through their dreadful sign up process here are the results, in Covent Garden WC2H.

So why do I keep doing it?!? 5GB data allowance and uncompressed images is just too tempting, but not at those speeds. wink

I've just taken this test using my iPhone tethered. (From inside my house)

I know it says Sky Broadband but it's defiantly Three.

It seems the more you use the 3G connection the more the speed drops.

Out of four speedtest.net results stored on my PC results page the best is this: http://speedtest.net/result/1383509292.png

The rest of the tests are all under 1Mbps on the download.

What do you think makes it say Sky BB out of interest?
