Yeah it's a feature phone, rather than a smartphone really with it's own OS. I don't think you'll get much in the way of speed test aps etc.
I realise that, I just thought that there may be a speed tester site with a mobile variant (m.xxxxxxxx.com) out there. Its only me being nosy so no major issues lol.

I managed to achieve 55.52 Mbps (Down) and 26.22 (Up) with a Ping time of 78ms in Derby today.

Fastest I've seen it yet (personally.)

Same thing (yes I am aware LTE is technically 3.9G rather than 4G).
Still, pretty amazing.
Though I'm more than happy the times I get 6Mbps on my iPhone 4 (which is 7.2Mbps HSDPA).

o2's speed tests are never accurate due to the compression proxy they use.

Can I ask how you got all that info regarding your provider , as on my very of speedtest, from the Apple app store, my version does not show that info.

Looks to me like a screen grab from a pc/mac web browser version.

Just the standard app. Click on your result within the app and hit the email icon it will then give you all the information as well as a URL. If you copy this into your browser it will display as per mine.

If you go into the results of previous speed tests, then click on the speed test in question, then click the email icon. In the email preview there should be a link to an image like above.

EDIT i was a bit slow

Having been with EE 4G for around a week here is just one of my speed tests taken when in London Farringdon

area.http://www.speedtest.net/iphone/487408758.png

Find it great, not sure i would pay the full price, Got the double data 10gb deal and friends and family discount on top so its still cheaper than my full monty package.

So according to that article there is chuff all difference between all of the networks.

I have been testing different sims in preparation of switching in May. The best I have seen in my house is 3 and Tmobile, both were giving 15meg down. As much as I want to go with 3 I think Tmobile will win because of the reception at work.

In my shed. DC-HSPA Enabled phone, assuming I'm in the area too. Virgin Mobile (Still, porting out to Orange this week, shouldn't see much difference)
