Blogging at 256kbs

I’m sitting in my car waiting for my sons soccer tournament to begin. While waiting I decided to play around with my iPhone.

I was curious to see how well the 3g network worked in the middle of Orefield, Pa. I was a bit disappointed.

According to the Speed Test iPhone app I’m only getting 256kbps here. I guess I should be glad that I’m getting any signal. What it is telling me though is that 5 bars of service doesn’t equate to fast 3G.

I kind of feel bad for the person who left their lights on.
