    Slow Mail in 3G

    When I'm on 3G my mail is so slow, downloading and uploading. I don't have that problem on the WiFi. Is it just the 3G service? today I wanted to forward a simple email to someone and it took forever.

    3G service at any country is much much much slower then a WiFi Connection.
    2.5M is considered to be an excellent speed.

    Ha! I wish I got 2.5m on wifi! DSL really sucks. I get .8mbps if I am lucky!

    I just did a speedtest with the speedtest.net app and I have 2.65Mbps download and 0.25 Upload. So I guess its the upload speed that's killing me.

    I never thought about running the speedtest on the 3G I've ran it many times on my wifi at home. No wonder my sent emails are slow, 0.25 is terrible. AT&T ought to be ashamed.

    Slow 3G is the reason I didnt buy a 3G iPad. It would be painful to use. My phone doesn't even get 3G all the time and is slow.
