3G Data Speed Test in Singapore

2009 December 25

We love telco wars, don’t we? Now 50% of my new media team have switched to iPhone 3GS and the most interesting thing is the 3 of us are with the 3 different telcos!

Yesterday, we did a speed test with our iPhone 3GS at Health Promotion Board. We used the iPhone app to perform this test. At a count of 3, we pressed “Begin Test” simultaneously on our respective iPhone 3GS. performs three key measurements used to determine the overall quality and performance of the Internet connection.

  • Download Speed – The speed at which data is sent from the Internet to your computer
  • Upload Speed – The speed at which data is sent from your computer to the Internet
  • Ping (Latency) – The time it takes in milliseconds for a small piece of data to be sent from your computer to the Internet and back

Results? *Drumroll*


We had a confusion earlier as the settings for the results for my iPhone was set to mbps, while the others are using kbps.

Starhub is clearly the fastest like it’s mascot Sparky, followed by SingTel the Red Brolly, and of course, M1 the scorching hot sun.

    Is the Singtel 1 on the iPhone’s 12gb data or the BBOM plan? Cause I know some people subscribe to the BBOM which is only 1Mbps where else the iPhone data plan is giving 7.2Mbps.
