AirVoice Wireless Test

In my previous post I talked about getting a SIM for AirVoice Wireless, which is an AT&T MVNO. Here’s some screen shots from some data speed tests up by my mountain cabin, which only has 3G service.

Now compare those to my Verizon iPhone 4:

I used to get much faster data – around 3-4 Mbps speeds – when I used to have AT&T with my old iPhone 3G at this same location. It seems to me that even though AirVoice is using the AT&T network, speeds may be throttled. On the other hand, my current Verizon iPhone 4 isn’t doing so well either. So I think when I upgrade to the iPhone 5, I’ll get the AT&T version, as its 3G may be faster than Verizon’s 3G in my non-4G area at the mountain cabin.
