    Sprint's 3G here in Houston is pretty horrible too. Seems to vary greatly depending on the city you're in though.

    At my house I'm around 800 - 1.2, then yesterday at the ballpark I was getting 2.2 per speakeasy in San Francisco...

    Regularly it can dip as low as 500ish, but it's alright, not great but I can live with it, in fact when I first got it, it felt times faster than expected...

    EVDO is like a 5 year old technology. Don't expect much from it. What you report is what I get on average, perhaps higher. 4G, on the other hand, flies.

    Wow! Just tested my 3G speeds in my bedroom and it's at 1593 kbps d/l and 643 d/l. That's the fastest I've seen it go inside my room. Usually it would be around 700-1000 kbps. :)

    Do you have a closer server to use for the test? Are you noticing slow web performance? Frankly people get too caught up in Speed Tests.

    the problem isnt the speed its that app. i used that app and got the same results u guys do . but then i connected my pc to it and used easy tether and got download of 2.2mbps by 756kbps. the app is flawed

    lol im usually at 200-700kbps down and 40-600kbps up

    funny thing is i can do anything still fast at the lowest speeds :S

    ATT here in Charlotte is faster (on 3g) but if i drive out of here i have 0 signal on att..i switched cause i was sick of the iphone and cause having $40 more on my pocket sounded better ..traveling and having signal is a plus

    real test comes saturday ....will drive to Charleston SC where my iphone had 0 signal...lets see how it goes on the road with the evo

    How is he not on 3G? He said he tethered to his PC, using the Phone As Modem which uses 3G

    Not sure how those speeds are terrible. Speeds will vary greatly on location. Pretty much common sense.

    I get those kinds of results when I have 2 or 3 bars. When I'm in a good area I get really fast 3G I wish I could show you guys. What app will let me take a snap shot. I'm not rooted.

    Im getting 1.7m down and .7m up on average from my local server/tower. But trying out some others, much farther away, im getting 2.5 down and still only .7 up.

    My question is - is the phone connecting to the nearest one by default? If so, is it possible to set it to another server as default? Thanks!
