I'm developing a mobile phone application and I'm looking for a table that roughly correlates current signal strength to available bandwidth, in order to determine compression levels for data transmission.

This is for either GPRS or UMTS/HSDPA - preferably both. Does such a table exist?

Many thanks.

I'm sure it does, they are mutually exclusive to one another. Where you would find that on the internet.?. I would start by looking up the frequency bands of GPRS or UMTS/HSDP to find their throughput.. To be honest, to be anywhere accurate, you're taking on a MASSIVE software project. You're going to need a to measures multiple wave spectrum and frequency ranges to calculate constructive, and destructive interference, signal degradation, cross talk, indeterminate variables such as electromagnetic interference, etc..

I'm sure a basic table with bandwidth/signal strength would work, but your application would be unreliable unless it could also calculate with some kind of accuracy real "throughput"

Good luck
