I was using speedtest.net on my phone and it seems to get a 117mbps download speed, is this normal? I haven't seen it that high before but it could just be me (it's normally around 50 but at midnight it went down to 10 so they might have upgraded the transmitter).

If it is accurate this is quite an advancement for data networks (I only pay about $15 for unlimited everything).

It's always been fairly accurate for me, but cross reference it against another speed test site for accuracy. I like fast.com.

Speed test is quiet accurate. What country do you leave and compare it the average internet speed available on the internet base on geographical location. The amount you doesn't affect your internet speed as long as your Internet service provider didn't state a speed limit on your Internet plan. But based on your post, You used speedtest by the time people are usually asleep so you basically get most of the internet data transfer speed. Nothing unsual unless you are on a 3rd world country.

Yeah @coin I'm getting 50-70mbps now, back to slow Internet (and it's a first world fairly major city). Couldn't find averages but they'd probably have everything in their and not just mobile networks? Most people round here have gigabit WiFi so it's still slow on those standards.

@leo yeah thanks fast is giving aboit the same (and ahhhh that's netflix's analyser).

Where do you live, if I may ask? $15 for unlimited 5G sounds like a blast, and it’s far cheaper than any internet chip I ever used in Brazil (where I live) and in some countries in Europe I traveled to. For example, I’m using a 8gb 4g sim chip which I paid €15 for, and I couldn’t easily find anything better than this. Sad

Well it was £10 for 5gb but they made it unlimited for customers with them for quite a while afaik.

I live in Cardiff, I think it's the only major city that enjoys this speed since a lot of others have businesses that take a lot of bandwidth (with card readers and stuff).

What does the "5G" in your subject line mean?

It's an arbitrary schematic.

1G - phone calls
2G - with texts
3G - with 2mbps data (afaik)
4G - with 20mbps data
5G - up to around 8 gbps of data afaik... None of the masts are yet configured to that speed afaik, most will probably be gigabit though at least the receiving transmissions will be.

It's for mobile network utility definitions (I can't grammar).

They're now charging extra for 5G devices but I bought my phone before it was a huge thing. Kinda surprised they didn't block it as part of a sales technique to buy a new phone (like they're doing now with them).

Wow, is 5G really a gamechanger compared to 4G? Feel that 4G is pretty quick enough with pages loading in just a few seconds.

Wel everyone wants smart tech and doesn't care of the repocussions so probably.

Hearing gen z whine into their alexa for a timer has become the new norm... (I wouldn't go anywhere near one).

Why not just Google 5G speeds to know what type of speed 5G gets?

And how would that work? It can be anywhere from 20mbps to 8gbps? They won't list their coverage (I doubt) as it'd probably hinder sales...

Same, I don't really fancy speaking to those things since they're listening to you like 24/7.

Had one (non-Alexa) which could mention phrases and respond to your sentences besides requests for songs. Kinda unsettling IMHO 😅

I was using speedtest.net on my phone and it seems to get a 117mbps download speed, is this normal?
It's not a good idea to use speedtest.net and other extremely popular resources for benchmarking, because some operators are prioritizing traffic to speedtest.net. This results with unreally good rates being shown by speedtest.net, while actual bandwith is a subject for shaping. Just an example, speedtest.net may show you 60 Mbps while you're not even able to watch youtube video because your actual bandwith is less than 64k. I've seen this few times with at least three mobile operators in two countries...

Try something different, e.g. https://fast.com/.

I believe it's something like this.

Yeah both are getting the same speeds. Fast and speedtest.

Well then you're lucky enough. Maybe you've got a connection to base station which is located nearby. I've been enjoying ~110-120 MBps few years ago, because my operator installed a base station on the roof of our office building. Some of my colleagues were protesting it due to fears of leukemia and other bs...  Grin Every significant development faces an opposition by fools and it's inevitable.

P.S. Unfortunately, my new office isn't so good in that term.

If it is accurate this is quite an advancement for data networks (I only pay about $15 for unlimited everything).

More and more mobile network people use ovh.net for speedtest.
Try giving it a whirl.

Also, 5G bandwith doesn't just depend on connectity/phone, but rather to the bandwith the MO gives you.

Nahh. That one is a scam designed to make you feel better about your connection.
