INDIA'S first of it's kind SPEED TEST -TATADOCOMO,BSNL wins!

I Think this is INDIA'S first of it's kind speed test i'm posting on this blog!

Yes, generally speed tests are conducted By using the site  mobilespeedtest.com to test the speeds on a mobile.
But the tests conducted and performed by using  mobilespeedtest.com are just a seconds work with the testing process!
Then whats the truth in the speed result when a network is able to give a speed of 130Kbps for just a second and again drop back to a lower speed limits?
Imagine a network with a constant speed of 60Kbps through out data connection time which lags behind a network in speed test when that network gave a speed of 130Kbps for that moment the test is conducted and again drop to 30Kbps ?
Then is that the fault with the operator or testing process?

I worked for some time to bring a resolution for such tests and finally came up with an excellent idea!

This is a technical test and an easy way to conclude the
1)Network's speed
2)Network's response with the device(Networks incoming and outgoing data)

TEST EXPLANATION:
In this test i took My N900 and played the live internet radio using different network's INTERNET connections(Those networks which are EDGE enabled ie, 2.5 in the area i tested) for about 2Min App to note the continuity!
I recorded the streamed Audio for every session with the help of software installed on my device N900 (RECORDER) and just reconstructed it into a wave form so that the gaps or the buffering time is clearly visible in the form of gaps between the waves with the help of Audacity(A free audio editing software for windows).
Then by seeing the test results even a small kid can conclude which is the best Responsive/speed network.

The test is conducted only for
1)TATA DOCOMO
2)IDEA
3)AIRCEL
4)BSNL(cellone)(2.5G EDGE only not on 3G)
All the other remaining operators are left without the test conducted on them because they are not Edge enabled in the area i took this test.Will try to perform the tests on the remaining operators soon.

1)TATADOCOMO RESULT:

In Tata DoCoMo's test Result we can clearly see that in the 2.15Min test time there is no gap or any buffering time required to stream the audio.
It's picture perfect!

2)IDEA RESULT:
WAVE FORM OF RECORDED AUDIO & SCREENSHOT OF THE LIVE STATION PLAYER.
Idea network disconnected many times during the test and the audio streaming is not upto the mark.
To be fair and truth ,It's so uncomfortable that i am posting the test result of three sessions of  tested wave forms.
Test1
Test2

Test3

3)AIRCEL:
It's okay while performing with this operator! Not too good or bad when compared!

4)BSNL(cellone)(2.5G EDGE only not on 3G)
As every body know Bsnl started it's 3G services , this test is conducted using an ordinary 2.5G Edge enabled SIM card only.(3G is not activated on the number from which test is performed)

WAVE FORM OF RECORDED AUDIO & SCREENSHOT OF THE LIVE STATION PLAYER
Test1

BSNL gave same result as of TataDoCoMo, except a slight 2second buffering time which can be negotiated.
The time is shown in the marking above, all the other portion of the waveform remains perfect!

The Tests performed clearly show that 
1)TATADOCOMO wins the test followed by
2)BSNL(Judged including the 2 sec buffering time) 
3)AIRCEL
4)IDEA

Now it's time for you people to Judge which is the best!
NOTE:The Test is performed on a high end device like N900 and we cann't promise the same results when done with any other device or same.As per my knowledge the tests performed are true and accurate to 90% as this is not a per second test as of Mobilespeedtest.com  but a continuous 2min test depending upon the activity and response of the network.

The test is conducted at Vijayawada,Andhra Pradesh.
