Speed Tests AllTel Vs Sprint

I had the opportunity tonight to test Alltel's EVDO vs Sprint's EVDO (actually both are 1x here).

I used a Franklin Wireless CDU 550 from Alltel, my trusty Samsung m500 from Sprint, and hijacked my neighbor's wireless (AT&T FastAccess DSL) for a control. I didn't move the laptop or anything else during the testing. The results show an average of three tests to the same Speakeasy site.



Carrier:DownUp
Alltel:13452
Sprint:13067
Nicked Wireless:807 115


Conclusion? If you want bandwidth, steal your neighbor's wireless.
