Am I right in thinking this is pretty damn fast?

I can't get that on fixed line speed, there again I can't even get 3G where I am now so I shouldn't be supprised. It is way fast for the southern hemisphere.

id say so its 27 times faster than my landline and 3-4 times faster than my 3g mifi dongle

Ping time is still atrocious though, that's what really matters.

It's wide that's for sure. Is it fast though? IME latency, jitter, packet loss etc are more important now for the vast majority of uses. 143ms ping is really slow, but then speedtest isn't made to test latency. Out of interest I'd tether my laptop and do a pingtest.net

It loads apps like the BBC news app really quick, but its a lot better hardware than my previous phone (HTC HD2 running Jellybean) as well so Im not sure which of the performance increases are down to a better spec phone and which is due to the speed of the network. Streaminig from youtube etc seems OK though.

I get a 330ms ping to edugeek and that is way faster than it used to be.

Mine's not even close to that PING: 68ms DOWNLOAD: 845.1 kB/s UPLOAD: 262.5 kB/s

Ping is amazingly important for webpage loading, having decent bandwidth is good but latency really kills all as a poorly configured webserver (apache users mostly... ) will cause very slow loading when trying to pull in images/page elements.
Norway has 4G that is so good people can play LoL (League of Legends) and fps games without issue along with a skype call and no noticeable ping issue at all so it is possible.

Interesting that Stephen Fry was tweeting yesterday how poor his 4G in central LA was! I'd be quite thankful for a decent 3G connection where I live!
