New iPad Wifi Performance

Andy Patrizio of Tablet PC Review decided to test his iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S, iPad (1st-gen) and iPad (3rd-gen) to compare the Wi-Fi reception quality with the SpeedTest iOS app. The iPhone 4S was the clear winner of this test, would have been interesting with an iPhone 4 along with a death grip.

Internet connection speed to the servers is certainly not consistent, especially if you are subject to throttling. There is definitely a better way to test WiFi signal strength, but this method does show predictable deviations in overall data speed to the servers in Texas and California.

iPhone 4S upload speeds seem much higher, maybe the neighbors torrent uploads were turned off while testing.
