Singtel Ione Super + Mobile BroadBand Premium = 10+ mbps DL/2+ mbps UL at Changi Airport T3 tt's quite amazing feat... will visit there when i go to Sitex to do speedtest again since i lost all my screenshots

anyone who has the new iphone plan must visit T3 to do speedtest
that's blazing fast. I'm on smart surf 100 only. lowest speed i get is 1.5mbps which is an improvement from my p1000.

wah kao...white! if only hv loong-ed for 5 days...
thats the problem of samsung sg. They refuse to reveal when white is coming.
Btw, the package only comes with 1 charger with detachable usb cable. S2 has a spare additional usb cable but note doesn't have extra.

Yes, for true bragging rights must go Changi do Speedtest....that is very fun!
haha yeah... especially when i live at the other end

then again, whats with all these high speed when its still just as bad in moving trains. miss those days in glasgow when their prepaid comes with eat-all-you-can data and is so amazing reliable at all places even though the advertised speed is a half or lesser than wad they advertise here.

Can hit doesn't mean it's practical lor. What's the use if I can get 8mbps in 1 specific location but 99% of the time it's less than 1mbps? Unless you work for that telco wanna do so for bragging rights lah. So sad.....

And that must be the worst posting of a picture EVER. Your eyes must be as tiny as the picture posted.

Ya...I go US also simply stunned by the data speeds, even though their coverage is supposed to be crappy due to their large size.

Over here, it's tiny area needed to cover, and slow. The only advantage we have is that it's not that expensive.

aiya.. our local telco will tell you that connection speed will depend on the number of user in that area also..

so.. can't really blame them la, no matter how good they can improve their hardwares.. SG still same small size.. but the USER DENSITY keeps rising, must faster than gahmen can fill the sea. What to do?

Yah....come to think of it, it's true.

iirc, Singapore is 2nd or 3rd in population density worldwide....I think they need cell towers on every HDB flat to give proper results...

Congrats! Good to know there's people out there with a chronic need to do Speedtests constantly...

Going to Changi to test out more often?

No choice lah....previous image only 125x200 pixels.....maybe only Smurfs can see clearly. Thanks for the big big one.

guys,

I never buy from Android market before. Is there a surcharge over the Market price charged by singapore credit cards??

I just bought tasker, beautiful widgit, some games. The charges are not reflected in my online bill yet.
