    1.29 Mbps. That's what I got when I tested my 3g speed. 3g is faster than my wifi. That's sad LOL.

    That looks pretty good to me. I usually get 1.2-1.3 Mbps at home but top out at around 0.9-1.0 Mbps when I'm out.

    [EDIT] I am in the Seattle, WA, area.

    That seems to be the target. I have only measured as high as 1203kbps.

    Might be a good idea to post your locations (city, state, country) ;)

    I first ordered my iPhone yesterday but will post my findings when I receive it.

    Wow 2.2 Mbps on 3g!? I did not know that was even possible. I thought 3G topped out at 1.8 Mbps. I have seen 1.7 briefly but on average I get 1.0 - 1.2

    I believe the theoretical maximum speed of W-CDMA (or at least HSDPA, which I believe AT&T uses) is 7.2 Mbps.

    My speeds seem to vary depending on what test i use. testmyiphone.com consistently gives me 1.25 Mbps and iphonespeedtest.com yields .50 Mbps.

    1.4 Mbps in new york.

    Do people from Columbus have to constantly talk about the Buckeyes because there is nothing else to do there but watch college football and watch the grass grow? Seems to make sense to me ;)

    That sounds about right.

    I usually get around that on 3G, and about 4.x Mbps on WiFi.
