Well here in Jacksonville Florida (riverside) the 3G has since gone away and hasn't come back for a good while.
In fact, I haven't had ANY data for the past week. I just updated my RL and now I have 1x. Dunno wtf is going on. The no-data thing is pissing me off.
Comcast just pissed me off so I canceled them, was hoping I could tether 3G to my computer. Guess not though with the 1x.
