Getting 200-300kbps. Normal, or problem?

    I live in downtown Chicago, and we're completely covered in 3G apparently, but the speeds I get, while faster than my original iPhone, do not even come close to approaching the speeds advertised by Apple and AT&T. Is there a chance there's something wrong with my phone, is it Chicago? AT&T... anyone else in a similar situation?

    I'm sorry to bump this, but I really would like to gain some insight into whether or not I have a faulty phone. Can anyone confirm if these speeds appear problematic, or if you're all experiencing the same thing? Thanks!

    So is it reasonable to assume then that if you're not getting the kind of speeds we see in the new iPhone commercial, or the speeds that others have reported that I could take my phone back to the Apple store and request a new one?

    I think it's AT&T. I get anywhere for 100 Kbp/s to 1+ Mbp/s here in Houston even with full bars.
