Rogers 3G Network Speedtest: iPhone 3G vs iPhone 3GS

The iPhone 3GS has some extra horsepower under the hood compared to the iPhone 3G. This was revealed in yesterday’s iPhone 3G vs 3GS boot up speed comparison. Another reason why people want the iPhone 3GS is the increased network speed over 3G.

Today’s video will primarily focus on Rogers 3G network speeds. It will feature another iPhone 3G vs iPhone 3GS showdown. The video will also show the launch speed of default iPhone apps (ie Weather, Stocks, Camera, Settings, etc) and a 3D application. Also the following question will be answered: Should I buy/upgrade to the iPhone 3GS?

Watch the video below to find out!

The Rogers Network is the Limitation for All iPhone 3GS Owners

As an iPhone 3GS owner, it irritates me that I can only get a max speed of about 2.2-2.5Mbps down. What gives? Rogers clearly advertises 7.2Mbps but this is actually impossible to achieve. Let’s quote the Rogers website:

Rogers has built more than the backbone of a network. We’ve created the fastest mobile network in the country. And we’re excited to announce that Canada’s fastest network‡ just got even faster, with the Rogers 3.5G Network. We’ve increased our network download speed from 3.6 Mbps to up to 7.2 Mbps from coast to coast, so you can browse, open/edit attachments, and access files faster than ever before. Even 2X faster than with the competition.

Err…network download speed of 3.6-7.2Mbps?! That is ridiculous because our test above showed that we barely were able to achieve 2.5Mbps on the iPhone 3GS. I would love to find out how we can get at least 3.6 or higher on my iPhone 3GS. Do I need to drive out into the countryside where the networks aren’t overcrowded?

My Open Letter to Rogers: Your GSM Days Will Soon Be Numbered

Dear Rogers, I implore you to increase the capacity to your network to allow the iPhone 3GS (aka the “fastest” iPhone yet–but not on Rogers) to perform to its peak. I strongly urge you to do so because when Telus/Bell rolls out their GSM network, you will be left in the dust. Here’s a sneak peak of things to come if you don’t believe me:

    The iPhone is more CPU limited than network limited. This can be proven with tethering. When tethered to my laptop here in Saskatoon I can get 5Mbps down consistently using http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest The iPhone has to burn a lot of cycles to process the data or website it is downloading. When tethered this is passed directly to the laptop for processing. I have also found that Xtremelabs test to be very inaccuate.

    Here’s a better explanation about what 3.6 and 7.2 Mbps networks mean:
    http://gizmodo.com/5295789/giz-explains-what-atts-72mbps-network-really-means

    I’m no fan of Rogers, but do a little research before freaking out. Every network has overhead, even wired ones. I routinely get 2.5Mbps on Fido in Toronto, and have seen over 3Mbps several times. Not bad considering my (non-Rogers) cable modem connection is 6Mbps.

    I think 7.2 is the quoted maximum. Also, I think you’re reading the statement wrong. They didn’t upgrade so that the speeds will now be 3.6-7.2Mbps, they went from a max speed of 3.6Mbps (3g) to a max speed of 7.2Mbps.

    I just upgraded my 3GS yesterday and was asking when the 7.2 network would be rolled out and the rep said that they are still working on it. He seemed as dissappointed as I was (he is a 3GS owner as well) but it’s good to know it’s actually coming!

    every time I see anything new that mentions Telus or Bell setting up to do battle
    I get the little Homer Simpson “eeeeee” giddy laugh in my head.

    now I’m just wondering knowing the penalties for canceling out a contract on a 3G – what is the difference should you end a 3GS contract early?

    LAWL! @GARY You don’t have to keep saying “3GS wins.. 3GS is in the lead.. etc” I think we can all agree that the 3GS is supposed to be faster than the 3G. Is that your subtle way to justify buying the 3GS???

    I still ain’t buying it. Yes because I can’t at the moment because of the 3yr contract and also because I refuse to pay $700 for it..

    I agree. I am sticking to my 3G and 2 years left on my contract. My 3G is jailbroken, unlocked, and also does skype over 3G. These are things that the 3GS cannot do until it is jailbroken. I can talk all over North America for 2 bucks a month on my 6GB plan using skype over 3G. This is unlimited calling and does not take any minutes from my ‘voice’ bucket.

    Saving 2 seconds here and 12 seconds plus a couple of hundred dollars ot more there does not equal my unlimited calling over 3G and being able to use any sim card I please.

    Highest I’ve pulled is about 2.3 in London while tethering, if I ran it on the phone it only got 1.2 . That was at 4am at work with 5 bars as well. Perhaps downtown might have better speeds.

    Make sure you check what server you are connecting to, my phone loaded a server in spokane by default, but when i connected to the vancouver server my speeds were significantly higher.

    That being said, my results were all over the place, download was anywhere from 500kbps to 2400kbps…upload was consistently bad at aroudn 300-500 kbpd

    I get 2-2.5 Mbps download on 3GS on Fido. Question – does Fido and Rogers offer the same 3G coverage? Bestbuy and Fido says yes – but Rogers says they are better! Who is telling the truth?

    I'm in Victoria, BC and did a speed test and got just over 1.2 Mbps. Then my friend who just got his iPhone 3GS at Bell did the sane test and got nearly 7 Mbps. I've decided that if Rogers doesn't step it up by the time the new iPhone is released in June 2010 I'm switching to either Telus or Bell. I'm not a contract because I purchased my 3GS out of contract last year so I don't care to stay with a company which lies and cheats us of our hard earned money.

    Fuck you Rogers!

    This comment has nothing to do with the speed as I haven't done the test. I live in Edmonton I have two iphones in our house, both of which drop calls on a regular basis. Rogers says it is the phones not the network and their customer service in regards to this issue has been deplorable. Unfortunately I am locked in a contract, but am willing to pay the cost to get out. I have been told by other carriers I would need to unlock my phones. Does anyone know how or where I can get this done (online link) and whether it would affect the warrantee of the phones.

    I agree with Jeremy's comment to Rogers
