The Ookla Net Metrics released the results for nearly 57,000 tests initiated by iPhone users in the United States. These showed that AT&T users were getting a slightly better speed as compared to those with Verizon.
The free network speed test offered at speedtest.net has become so prevalent that the federal government has acknowledged it as a reliable tool for testing speed on various networks.

When Ookla Net Metrics published the data in which iPhone was pitted against iPhone, it grabbed the attention of people. But it has been known by networking experts that HSPA is faster than the EV-DO rev.
But Doug Suttles, Ookla co-founder, released a more comprehensive data later and the world come to know where to look for the fastest iPhone in the world.
