    I'm getting SO much better reception and speed with the update. Been on 2.2 since Friday.

    The best I have gotten was around 5 mbps I think. Haven't tested 4G since the 2.2 update.

    I've been getting up to 10MB down and 1MB up in Hotlanta, GA, ever since Clear (owned by Sprint) started service last year. On my EVO, I can get top speeds of 10MB in my apt, which is within spitting distance of a tower.

    The 3G/4G speeds are definitely affected by time of day and distance to towers, obviously.

    For those outside of 4G areas... I feel bad for y'all!

    How far is the range? Reason why I ask is that I live on the fringe of the northern suburbs and I have not been able to access 4g. :(

    I wish they would hurry up and expand the 4g signal over the Atlantic City, NJ area!

    I haven't noticed any speed changes in 4G since Froyo, and I'm not sure that HTC/Google even did anything that would even affect 4G in this update.

    The 4G radio was indeed updated. I was getting 5 mb before and now I get 10 mb as seen in my OP.

    I think they did some major tweaking. My 3g speeds has always sucked in and around my house, but now I am getting 2-3mbps down and 1ish up. Signal strength has also improved when I'm inside. I rarely drop below 3 bars unless I'm in the basement.

    I did some tests tonight (upstairs by the window, because I can't get 4G anywhere else in my house) and got some downloads around 7.5 mbps, by far the best I have ever got.

    Pulling 1.5 to 2.2 in the Monroe, WA area... About 10 miles from the 4G towers in Snohomish, WA... Pretty solid 1.0 up, but down is just depressing... Course, I am only pulling 700k down on 3G...
