    I would like to know this as well. It always seems that 3g is bit faster than my wifi at home.

    WiFi should be 2 or 3 times faster than 3G... What kind of signal are you getting from both WiFi and 3G?

    Having wifi issues as well. Feels like I'm on dialup on 802.11b/g, but the 3G is fast. Usually get "page could not be displayed" errors when on wifi.

    I just use the 3G for web anyhow, all is well.

    well i figured it would be fun and interesting to run a web based "speed test" from the motodroid browser, but they are all flash based.

    i have not tested wifi yet so cant comment on that speed, but yeah it should be faster.

    Hmmm that is odd, I use the WiFi at home and work and it is quite fast...fast IMO than the 3G.

    With that said, I am sorry I just have to hand it to whoever was in charge of the browser speeds on this phone cause it is about 4 times quicker than my Storm when browsing the internet using 3G.

    I get better speed from wifi for sure but 3g is better than I thought it would be.

    Those of you who have slow wifi speeds, what kind of connection are you getting? If you move closer to your router is it better?

    Reception is pretty important speed-wise

    There is an app in the market called Speedtest. It's made for the Droid.
