yeah i work in pheonix and live in gilbert, az. What ever they are doing in maricopa county to screw up the download speed needs to stop haha
I've seen suffering speeds lately, too. I live near Findlay, OH (Northwest part of Ohio) and we have a fairly decent size population in my area.
Normally I get around 1.5mb down and about 500kb up. I just ran a test (7:49pm) and got 567.2kb down and 199.4kb up. Pretty sucky... grr.
Whatever, though. I have Wi-Fi everywhere I go (work, school campus, and home) so I don't really care. I get about 4.5mb down and 800kb up with Wi-Fi at work and on campus and about 2.2mb down and 500kb up at home. 3G doesn't mean a whole lot to me as long as it's reliable and is moderately fast.
Edit: err, just re-ran the test and got 1.2mb down and 414kb up. Maybe it was a fluke. Connection seems much faster now, lol.
