    So I went through the process of downgrading my phone, updating the radio, and rooting / loading the 2.2 leak (08/1). I must say that while my actual signal strength hasn't improved (-88 to -104 at my house), call quality and network speeds have vastly improved. Before the 2.05 radio I saw download speeds around 200-400k and uploads around 600-800kbps. Really strange numbers, but I do live in the sticks.
    After the 2.05 radio I have much better speeds and fewer dropped calls out here. So how do I know it's 1337? Here you go!
    EDIT: I've always been on EVDO rev A for those who wonder.

    I upgraded to 2.2 and with 1 to 2 bars I'm getting 2000kb+. I'm a happy camper.

    those are some really high numbers...

    my average around 700 for both download and upload... with 2.2 and latest radio update..
