Wired.com's iPhone 3G survey reveals network weaknesses

Recently Wired.com asked iPhone 3G users all around the world to participate in a study, which involved testing their 3G speeds and entering their data on an interactive map. Go to Wired.com for the complete results -- and an interactive map.


However, here is part of the publication's summary: "In our view, this data is a strong indicator that performance of the mobile carrier's network is affecting the iPhone 3G more than the handset itself. Correlating with our study's findings, Teknik & Trender reported that iPhone 3G's reception performed roughly the same as other handsets when run through a test chamber. Altogether, this furthers our thesis that it's highly unlikely that Apple is going to wave a magic wand and say, '3G problems, be gone,' with a software update. Before Apple can make such a claim, it needs to wait for all of its carriers to optimize 3G network behavior -- in terms of number of towers, how they're positioned and how much bandwidth each tower can handle"
