    I work in an office. It has a window, but it isn't
    In a house, near some mountains.
    So, I have noticed much better download speeds since updating to the most recent 2.2 leak (same as the OTA) even though i dont have the new radio. i rarely (if ever) got above 1Mbps. now i've been hovering anywhere between 1.8 and 2.0. i'm very happy about this. before, i was around 600-800k.
    Where is everyone else? I'm curious about how speeds are in different parts of the country, and if you have before/after results.

    Since 2.2 OTA, stock since launch, nothing special app-wise, I get:

    5 plus DL and 3 plus upload.

    Both much higher. These speeds are consistent. That was not the case before OTA.

    Happy camper here.

    I'm getting only about 700-800 kbps dl and 500-600 kbps ul. I'm showing 3G and have the OTA 2.2. What gives?

    I believe your 3G strength is equivalent to your voice signal strength. If you are not getting 4 bars your signal could be inferior.

    I've noticed no difference in speeds since the OTA update.

    My speeds are a little faster depending on where I am. I also see more of a constant 3G connection, and less of 1X. I rarely drop 3G anymore.

    800K down here. Nothing to write home about, but still tolerable when tethered for some quick, last-minute work.
