T-Mobile's mobile broadband network is the best in the UK, says independent UK test house P3 Solutions.
The operator was found to be "considerably" faster than competitors for web browsing, internet upload speeds, and sending and receiving emails.
For the number crunchers, the 2008 Q4 tests showed that users on T-Mobile had a web-browsing experience 35% faster than its nearest competitor, and uploading tasks like photos to Facebook or videos to YouTube was a rather impressive 59% faster than the next best operator.
Currently, T-Mobile users get free access to thousands of Wi-Fi hotspots. The operator is in the process of upgrading its HSDPA 3G network to 7.2Mbps within the M25, and other major UK cities, and expects to provide realistic speeds of up to 4.5Mbps, which is about twice as fast as current speeds.
