That's so awesome, I'm glad AT&T's faster!  Yay for poor coverage and dropped calls!

Yes, but how fast is the speed when you're out of coverage? Zero Kbps.

I will take coverage and access over speed any day

However, the AT&T iPhone sometimes could not complete tests because it did not have a connection, whereas the Verizon iPhone successfully completed every test. In short, I found the Verizon iPhone to be slower with network transfers but more reliable with coverage. Reviewers at other publications had the same results.

Accidently double-posted.

If you can't use the speed because you don't have coverage, what good is it?

Faster with a lot less 3G coverage, or slower with a lot more 3G coverage...WGARA?  It's still an Apple product, and that alone is reason enough for me not to care.

I'm with Bender on this one.

Actually what made this story interesting to me is that when I saw the name Ookla I wanted to watch some Thundar the Barbarian cartoons.

Lol. Me too! Now I gotta run off and see if I can find it to download. As for the story itself, tell us something we didn't already know. CDMA has been slower than GSM since Moses parted the sea.

Everyone knew this, but I don't think anyone cares.
