I've been hesitant about ever switching to a newer phone on the GSM network since I had heard the coverage and speeds weren't that good. Well, I guess in my area they have pretty d@mned good coverage!

I did a couple of speed tests using www.testmy.net
6700 Tethered via USB:
Download: 476 kbps
Upload: 120 kbps

Cingular Air Card:
Download: 4.2 Mbps
Upload: 450 kbps

Obviously the tests are a little skewed because the upper limit of HSDPA is supposed to be around 3.6 Mbps. Still, that is some good stats for my area (hour NW of Detroit).
