O2, Vodafone and 3 offered faster average download speeds than T-Mobile and Orange .. The research, conducted between September and December 2010 in partnership with broadband monitoring specialists Epitiro .. involved over 4.2 million tests and measured average speeds as well as the performance of the five mobile operators in areas of good 3G network coverage" (see chart).
