    What is everyone using to test internet speeds? I'd like to compare between HSPA+ and LTE on my WP7 devices, and compare the results to my Android devices where I can test 3g, HSPA+ and LTE easily. I'm not aware of an app, and I've not found a good HTML5 test yet either.

    Obviously there is something as I see other people testing the speed so I'm just needing pointed the right direction lol! Thanks!

    I use an app called BandWidth that you can find here: http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ap...4-00237de2db9e

    It seems to work pretty well, and is the highest rated speed test app I could find.
