    Is anyone else's 3G in DC down?

    All morning I have been getting Edge from all around the city

    Been 2 hours now. Reset phone, turned on/off the network settings, etc....

    Just curious

    I find that 3G rarely works here in the Fairfax/Centreville areas...When its working I get 200-500 kbps down....it is embarrassing...I hate AT&T here. I drop lots of calls; 38% infact. It isn't the phone, because when I am in Pittsburgh, everything is just fine, no dropped calls and 3G speeds of 1400-2100 kbps.

    On that note, my phone is showing 3G right now

    Nope, been normal for me all day from Springfield to Bethesda.

    (And yes I use the word "normal" instead of "great" on purpose. Point is, I am getting 3G this morning.)

    No problem for me in the downtown DC area around L'Enfant plaza. 3G is always slow though, but that's nothing new.

    I don't know about the 3G speed there in the area, but I know the 3G coverage area in DC is monstrous. I live in the Shenandoah Valley and had to go to the Apple Store in Alexandria because my iPhone broke. On the way back on 66, I noticed I had 5 bars and 3G almost all the way out to Front Royal. Unreal.
