    Just wondering if anyone has done this yet and what speeds they've clocked?

    here is a pic when using PDAnet. the help.bm/whatever hack showed comparable speeds.

    Here's the speed on the Fido/Rogers wireless network in Canada using the iPhone 3GS' built-in tethering.

    Why does it show your server location as being in Springfield, MO when your location says you're in Miami?

    no idea. I always figured it was an ATT thing. speedtest.net thru the iPhone sometimes gave me a chicago server!


    usually its a georgia server lol

    First time I've ever tried tethering with my iPhone.

    That's faster than I managed to get connected to WiFi at work! Shows how crap our ISP is!

    Here's mine for O2 in England:

    I'm not sure if O2 has 7.2Mbps HSDPA, but Fido/Rogers here in Canada have already implemented 7.2Mbps HSDPA.
