    I've been running speedtest.net on my phone this morning. Granted its early still (7A) but...

    The first time I run the speed test its average speeds down (800-1000kbps) then the phone must use its tuning algorithm because the upsteam speeds are faster (1500kbps). From there, the downstream tests are blazing fast - 2000-3500kbps. Yes, I made sure I'm not on wifi (I'm at work now - there is no wifi).

    The most recent test I ran got 2406/1645. I've closed the app, waited a few minutes, and tried again. I've tried this both at home and at work and the speeds were fast in both cases.

    In all tests the phone was lying on a flat surface not being touched by me.

    Anyone else seeing faster speeds on AT&T?

    Edit: I'm in Las Vegas FWIW

    Here is the list of my most recent speed tests http://tweetphoto.com/28868573

    Some of the ones towards the bottom was me testing the lower-left antenna issue. So you can ignore those...

    Well, it does support the 7.2Mbps speed. That is, if you can get reception with the damn thing :D

    I would say it's more likely because of the better hardware of the phone, definitely NOT att's network
