Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
How Fast is Your GSM Network? G-NetSpeed for WM
Have you ever seen those sites for testing your broadband speed connection? Well, XDA member gyokov has just made an application for WM to test just that, but out of your device’s current data service. This one touch app is very easy to use and seems to be rather accurate. On top of that, the app will allow you to add multiple url addresses to perform these tests. Lastly, it will show you your CellID.
The app was recently released, so it may have a bug or two. Also, you may have some suggestions for the dev. If this is the case, feel free to let the dev know.
The application tests the UMTS/GSM network speed. It also shows the serving CELLID of the network. You can choose between several URL or input your own URL.
You can find more information in the application thread.
