    Your speed should be quicker then what you have.
    Get the Tweakker app from the market and create a new apn see if that works.
    You can use wifi teather from the market it works great with our phone.

    Pdanet from the market works very well, and it is free for awhile. Note that it is against the straight talk and net10 Eula to tether to any other device. So if they suspect your tethering don't be surprised if they ban you from the network.

    Pdanet offers some advanced features to hide the fact that you are tethering but it's not fool proof. So be careful, I don't know how long you have had ST but also note that if you use what they term excessive data, which there is no solid definition for they will at least throttle you speed significantly, and possibly ban you if you persist in doing so.

    I use Wi-Fi tether also. You must be rooted for this app. Before I rooted I used easy tether. It worked but not as well as Wi-Fi tether.

    All good advice above. I just wanted to put my 2 cents in also.

    The bandwith that you can pass through your phone also has to do with the phones internal hardware and since this is not exactly a high-end model, dont expect broadband speeds.

    This is also a very useful thread...

    EDIT - The last step in the thread is to wipe the dalvik cache, for those of you who have not done much exploring, you do this by rebooting into recovery and going to advanced>wipe dalvik cache
    What the thread does not tell you is that you should also repeat these steps for the following files, as they are also used to keep an eye on your personal activities;

    Wow, the hidden ui features of this app are very interesting could really get in deep if I play with the wrong system app haha!

    Also the app corrected what seemed to be a permissions error with my busybox and sql in system/bin changed it from 0:0 to 0:2000 755 which might explain why an update.zip stayboogy and I were toying with didn't work properly.... Hmmmm I love it when the answer sometimes just jumps up in your face haha.
