    This sounds like what I'm getting on 3G too -- Generally 500k down 400-500k up. I check a lot with the Speednet app, actually. (I'm kinda surprised the upload speed is comparable to download.. usually there's a huge gap on home broadband speeds).

    I've been a bit disappointed (to be honest) I heard all about T-Mobile HSPDA launch at the beginning of the year and was expecting at least 1mb downloads in city areas. Maybe I was foolish. The speed is good, especially compared to some of my friends At&t speeds, and they pay almost twice what I do for service. I'm wondering when we'll see real hspda speeds though. It's a shame mobile companies play these shell games with customers.
