    This looks really bad, but it doesn't feel that slow. Test done in downtown S.F. on a Mac with almost full 3G bars. I wrote this thread while tethering via Bluetooth. It works in the background too. :)

    That's weird, I thought it was supposed to be faster on USB, not bluetooth.

    You're limited by the USB speeds.

    Yeah but the limit on USB is nowhere near .19Mbps...

    I'm kind of curious what you get on the phone itself in that same area. There's a speedtest.net app (free) if you don't have it already.
