    Visiting downtown here in Orlando (from Phoenix) and getting FAST 3G! 2400 Kbps. Is this normal in this area? It's almost like wifi.

    I live in Orlando about 2 miles from downtown. At home I rock wifi, but turned it off and got 2400 download. However around the central Florida area I have also pulled as low as 574. As with anywhere, conditions vary.

    Haven't been home since I've gotten iPhone 4, but 3G speeds in Polk County (Southwest of Orange County / East of Hillsborough County) were always blazing fast on my iPhone 3G.

    Florida's awesome.

    Yeah in general Orlando has very fast 3G AT&T speeds. I live in Lake Mary FL, a surburb of Orlando and speeds are consistently fast in this area. Really no complaints about AT&T here although there was a data outrage in this area last week for just the night.

    During busy tourist season, after the Christmas holidays AT&T speeds can slow to a crawl around the popular tourist destinations.

    But overall really no complaints about AT&T in Central Florida (Orlando area)

    I do travel a lot for business and have experienced very slow 3G speeds in areas like LA, SF, Miami, DC etc.

    Memphis has extremely fast 3G consistent speeds.

    Notice a trend here? In big Metro areas, AT&T networks can get jammed pretty quickly but in "mid level" areas 3G speeds are very fast.

    I consider Orlando a "mid level" city although there are a couple of million people living in the four county metro area.

    Ahaha, that place must be a zoo. It's definitely too many phones trying to connect. Here in Gainesville on game days, my iPhone is pretty much useless for a few hours.

    I work in downtown Orlando, and the signal is great, although sometimes it gets sketchy in my office, which is on the 12th floor.

    Aw man...I spent March in Orlando for spring training and 3G speeds were excellent. But even better was downtown Kissimmee. I didn't bother doing an actual speed test but it looked close to the wifi speed where I was staying. Now I'm back home and 3G speed sucks. I miss Kissimmee and Orlando. :(

    Yeah I live in downtown Orlando, the speed in that area is great. At the airport tho, AT&T signal SUCKS! So not all of Orlando gets great signals.
