Mark Guim from The Nokia Blog just came back from Amsterdam after attending the 2009 Maemo Summit. Everyone who attended got a Nokia (NYSE: NOK) N900, which has 1700 MHz 3G support by the way; the weird band that only T-Mobile (NYSE: DT) USA is using at the moment.
How fast does that sucker go?
2.26 Mb/s download, 0.34 Mb/s upload, ping time of 174 ms. That’s fast, almost double the speed of current fastest operator in America according to numbers published by The Boy Genius Report. I’m not surprised really, he must have been the only one using that cell tower’s 3G capability. Almost nothing runs on the 1700 MHz frequency.
