    I've noticed a big drop in speed during my 2 months with my Incredible. At first I thought maybe I downloaded some bad apps that were stealing data or putting viruses on my phone but I guess it's everyone who's noticing the lack of speed. By the way today the Internet has not been working regularly on my Incredible, games and other apps work just sometimes the Internet won't do anything.

    Same in northern NJ

    Up until a couple months ago, I routinely got around 1000 kb/sec (according to speedtest). It's gotten steadily slower over the past couple months. I ran a test last night at 3AM, and was getting around 50kb/sec, and in the middle of the day it's often slower.

    Clearly, Verizon has done nothing to scale their infrastructure to keep up with their inflated customer base, and with the huge demand for the Droid X, this will likely only get worse.

    I wonder if there are any regulations whatsoever to enforce whether or not wireless companies actually deliver the services that you sign entirely one-sided contracts to get the "privilege" to pay through the teeth for. Doesn't seem like it...

    Just tried it. Now I'm getting even slower DL speeds (24 kbps). Upload speeds are just fine (almost 700 kbps), so it's not a tower reception issue. There's just no downstream bandwidth to be had...

    anyone else notice 3g getting slower and slower?

    I've had my Droid 1 for about 6 months now. when I first hgot it I would see a lot of speed tests above 2meg down and almost never any less than 1meg. but pta dropped off a lot. now I can hardly get .5 as good and as I type this my last few tests are less than .1. been like that all day. even thou I have 2 to 3 bars and 3g. these look worse that tmobile edge numbers I used to get.


    seems to me that the greatest network is falling on its face here in Tampa.

    I've tried different base bands over the time and never noticed much difference. as well as #228 update roaming.

    any chance this is just my phone?
