    I used to get 1000 or lower on the speedtest.net app. Has anyone tested theirs lately?

    Well, please excuse me while I go slash my wrists. I just installed that app and got 750/240. Ran it again and got 470/193.

    I'll try it later outside.

    I'm also near Atlanta (about 30 miles east, near Athens), and I've noticed a dramatic increase in 3G speed over the past month. It's gone from being consistently around 700kbps to now consistently over 2100kbps. It's almost as fast as my work and home wifi!

    Long Island, NY (I'm ~40 east of NYC) and I noticed about a month ago, my 3G speeds when testing went from a range of 750-900 to a range of 1250-1500.

    Just pulled in 1.11Mbps in Arlington. Fastest I've ever seen on my phone since I got it.

    Ignore the Edge symbol, for some reason it went into Edge right after I did the speed test.

    I've hit as high as 1800 in Boston, but since yesterday I'm not even breaking 500 in my office. :-/

    screw the 7.2 deployment - I'm quite happy with 1/4 that if it actually works reliably.

    In the Philly burbs (20 Mins from Center City) my best DL today was 368 and best UL was 116. Hard to believe the closest sever is Columbus, OH...

    It's pitiful in the Houston area this morning. And they have a post on my login to AT&T wireless. They must be slowing the network down to allow for MMS.
