my Uk Vodafone is blisteringly quick 7.2mb/s everywhere i go. Even when i went mountain climbing last week I foursquared from the peak and uploaded it to google then phones the missus to tell her i hadnt died.
If you think ours is bad you need to travel more half of america only gets 2g. its because were are densely populated and have lots of cash we are the perfect customer base for upgraded mobile coms,.. only japan is better
look at that map. only 30% of the USA has 3g coverage! we have 390% in the UK i.e. in 99% we can get 4 different 3g networks

I am sure Verizon has more than 30% 3g coverage, but they are not GSM based.
I am from earth and a contributor to the trade press for UK telecoms. As such I get to visit and talk to all sorts of people within the industry. Prior to that I was on the transmission side from 1993 to 2007 conducting field tests.
I have not reported anything that has not been a subject of in-depth articles and discussions within the UK.
I've never been to the USA but their situation is totally different in the way things were set up in the first place and they have suffered for it.
I have travelled extensively in Europe and some countries impress me greatly whilst others not so.
But Britain does have the problem of a lot of people packed into small areas requiring access. Look at the money O2 have just thrown into getting capacity up in London and people are still complaining there are times of the day when their phones are all but useless. Serving these whilst trying to expand 3G coverage into smaller places in the likes of Wales and Scotland is a challenge, hence network share schemes.
Well, it's all turned out better for me in the end.
I'm now with T-Mobile, £2.50 less per month for more minutes and a 3GB data limit.
T-Mobile do two "flexible boosters" for internet. The "normal" one has a limit of 1GB, and then there's an Android one that normally costs £5 more, but has a 3GB limit.
They waived the extra £5 in an attempt to harpoon me... and it worked
Should note though - they don't seem to offer the Android version online. I had to phone up to get it.
