    I had been very impressed with AT&T, I live in the Treasure Coast area of FL, and I happily watched as my 3G speeds went from adequate, to great. For a good month or 2 I was downloading pretty steadily anywhere from 2500 to 4500k, upload is a rock steady 1250k.

    Then about a month ago I started seeing a lot of fluctuation, I'm now back to barely adequate, averaging 1500k, but with many dips to 500k, and the speeds are all over the place. One thing is certain, in my area at least, for over a month, AT&T has either intentionally or unintentionally screwed up DL speeds. The odd thing is, the upload speed has stayed rock steady at 1250. It's now common to get upload speeds twice as fast as my DL.

    Anybody else in the treasure coast or Orlando area having similar issues?

    It seems my once very impressive speeds have been cut in half, and with a lot of fluctuation.

    It may be that more users have started to use the 3G network in your area.
