My fam just moved from a City with a population of about 75k to a town of about 7k. Our down speed went from being about 300-400k down to 100-200k. (My wifes Nexus S on Sprint with similar results.)
In the small town the upload is faster than the download, which makes a very clear statement saying it's the network. They either don't know what the hell they are doing, or are throttling it. Honestly neither would surprise me.
But frankly the phone does great for me and I wouldn't go back, it's a cell phone, and when you really want to get on the internet you use a computer with WiFi.
