Crazy Fast 3G Speeds

I don't know if ATT updated their towers or what, but today I ran speedtest and got speeds than can make the EVO 4G guys jealous. It seems that they also fixed the upload speed cap. This is the fasted 3G I've ever seen, its faster than my home internet.

4465 Download and 1517 Upload.

Re: Crazy Fast 3G Speeds

That certainly sounds like good news. Where are you in Michigan? I'm in Lansing and AT&T's 3g coverage is great here.

They updated their towers and network like last year. Read about in a mag. Think it was PCWorld or something similar.

Re: Crazy Fast 3G Speeds

My experience is the speeds have not been as good as Sprint. Perhaps it Safari? I tried Opera Mini but was displeased with the choppiness.

Were I live, Sprint is terrible, I only get like 800k download and 150 uploads. I guess it all depends on where you live what how many towers are near by. So far I had the best luck out of ATT.

Re: Crazy Fast 3G Speeds

I was getting upload speeds like that for a while when I first got the iPhone, now (as engadget has reported) I'm in one of the areas that is having upload issues. Download is up at 1-2mbps, but I'm uploading at around 50kbps. But before this issue I was getting insane upload results with the iPhone 4.

Re: Crazy Fast 3G Speeds

Where I'm at, the big three all work great. I was on Sprint until I got the iPhone. I have not had any loss of signal or speed. People I know on verizon get great coverage and speed here as well. Maybe it has something to do with the Capitol being here. Could just be lots of towers.
