Is this normal for 3G? i have never tethered this phone before (using wifi tether for root users, no other app works probably because they don't use root priviledge) so i know i never hit any invisible cap, but my phone speeds while doing so according to speedtest.net and speakeasy's speed test site both report back a lousy .20-25mbps down and less than .10 up. this translates to 200-250kbps down and 100 or less kbps up. i thought 3G had the ability to go well upwards of 1mbps down at least? i have tried looking over every setting, changed the wifi channel, DNS, etc, and no improvement. is this the app's way of masking the fact i'm tethering to fool the carrier? on another phone running Cyanogenmod it was worse, i barely got 10kbps down! currently i am perusing the idea of using a wireless cellular hotspot to replace my failing internet (the WISP i use has constant problems with disconnects in cold weather or random speed drops 6 months out of the year and i am sick of it, they refuse to fix the problem after numerous complaints) but if all i am going to get is a lousy 256bkps down i might as well go back to dial-up!
