The essential guide to IT transformation

And the others? Well, O2's performance was lacklustre to say the least with not a sniff of true HSDPA speeds, while the results from T-Mobile and Virgin Mobile were also very disappointing. In all three cases, the gap between expectation and reality was large. If I had actually paid for any of them I'd have been back for a refund in pretty short order.

Perhaps the real story here though is the gap between even the best results I got and the claimed network maximums of 7.2Mb/s download and 5.76Mb/s upload. I never saw anything even remotely close to those numbers.
