Sydney Network Speeds. And The Winner is…
Screen shot 2009-09-25 at 12.18.33 PMOver at The ByteBlog, Seamus Byrne and Co have been busy hauling a bunch of iPhones around the greater Sydney area using speedtest to chart their results, which are not too surprising, though there’s some devil in the detail.

They put four iPhones to work testing the big four: Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and Three, running 150 individual speed tests in locations from Manly to Homebush, Annandale to North Sydney, and points in between.

The outcome?

Telstra blows away the competition with speeds almost double the next best network, while the best value data network Three delivered the slowest results. Indeed, Three’s best single result was slower than Telstra’s average.

Whether you’re just curious or need to confirm what you may already know about your chosen carrier, you can read the full report and download an Excel spreadsheet detailing the speedtest results here: The ByteBlog.

If you’ve conducted your own testing and it confirms or conflicts with those obtained by Seamus and his team, we’d love to hear about it in the comments.
