    Hi guys, I've been using these forums for a while and finally decided yo post. I forgot where but i saw someone post their 3g speed bashing ATT. They were so ecstatic that their hero reaches like 205kbps, while in their area ATT was much slower for them. So i decided to give it a shot on my hero and I just wanna say........I got 1081kbps...man thats freaking fast it must depend on where u live. I'm In philadelphia

    Got 1029 kbps on Orange in the UK. Pretty good, but I thought HSPDA was meant to be quicker than that?

    You can download the app speedtest.net from the market

    Never believe the "headline speeds" advertised. No account is made for "real life" i.e. packet overheads, retransmissions, reroutings and general interference from other radio sources.
