700p EVDO Speed USB vs BT

Just got Bluetooth tethering working with USBModem, pretty decent speed:

Bluetooth:

  • Download Speed: 319 kbps (39.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
  • Upload Speed: 49 kbps (6.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

USB:

  • Download Speed: 594 kbps (74.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
  • Upload Speed: 115 kbps (14.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

EVDO over Bluetooth is slower but still gives pretty good speed, but using USB also charges the phone, my PowerBook is pretty big so carrying the extra USB cable isn’t a big deal. Now at least I can get online during my Caltrain rides… 😉
