I pulled out my pre-paid mtn sim card today and decided to compare speed.
I am using a sony ericsson T610 4+1, so theoretical speed should be 48 kb/s
With vodacom I get 32 kb/s tops and with MTN i get 43 kb/s.
reception strength is the same.
just interesting thing is that there are only about 10 people in the area who even know how to use GPRS (the place is a small village where every one knows every one else) so the vodacom tower is not overloaded
tower id N***wana-2
I know that speed does not matter for me but why such a big difference in speed ?
I live about 2 km from the tower so poor reception is not an issue
