    I may be wrong on this but it shouldn't be the Froyo causing the speed gains. The 4G radio must be updated in HTC update causing the speeds to hit frantic high. I hope Epic come with a better 4G radio firmware to begin with.

    You may or may not be right. The update came as a whole package (2.2 w/ upgrade 4G) Considering the 4G radio is likely the same all around (for Sprint 4G devices), since there is only 1 4G provider through Clear. I imagine the firmware is going to be the same for each device, or close to it. It may well have been an update through 2.2 with how the Android system utilizes the 4G radio, or just a general 4G firmware upgrade through 2.2. Have you noticed that all 4G mobile phones, up to this point, have been Android based only? hmmmmm..... (unless I am wrong, lol)

    Its quite possible that the alleged 4G radio upgrade requires 2.2 to work, so yes, froyo might be indirectly causing these speed boosts. Either way, Epic will have its froyo upgrade in couple of months and then we will be flying supersonic on 4G too.
