    I was comparing phone specs for a friend the other day, and noticed that the spec for the iPhone4's GSM transceiver is 7.2mbps.

    Fat-fingered send button to soon...

    Anyway... I reliably hit 3/1mbps, but yesterday I scored a 5/1mbps near my home. Is that pretty much max it can practically do?

    Then it also leaves me wondering... 3-5mbps... Who needs 4g, were at fracking broadband speed already!

    The fastest AT&T's network can currently get is 7.2Mbps down and 2.2Mbps up. In the future or in other countries where it is giving better services, the iPhone 4 can reach its maximum speeds. But remember, you'll never see a radio device preform at the number on the paper. Only in labs and highly control environments will it ever get to those speeds.

    I was pretty sure I read it has a 14.4 downlink speed. Maybe I was wrong...

    You are definitely mistaken. iPhone 4 is capable of a maximum of 7.2 Mbps down, and 5.76 Mbps up.
