    Does anyone else notice a speed difference when using wifi tethering over USB tethering with their iphone? I'm currently using PDANet and it seems like for me the wifi tethering is noticeably faster at starting to load pages than the USB tethering mode once they being loading they load at about the same rate but the wifi connection starts loading them faster. I don't know if this is because the USB or the program possibly take longer to get the data to the computer or what I was hoping some other people could share their PDANet or MyWi experiences.

    USB tethering seems faster to me too, using mywi, haven't tried PDA net. Plus there's the added bonus of keeping your phone charged. That's my favorite difference.
