    Download speeds

    What is the download speed connected to a hotspot supposed to be? I'm trying to download a 672MB file and my download speed is, at the moment, 25.6Kbps/sec. This is slower than even my DSL ever was. The thing is the speed started at only 43Kbps and dropped off. It has even dropped lower at this point. I'm sure this isn't normal, but what can I do?

    BUMPITY-BUMP! Please guys and gals, this is a serious question. I was trying to download a
    Microsoft Office (paid for) upgrade and I just didn't have the speed to complete it. Is there anything I can do? This upgrade is on a DVD-less notebook computer and at the moment I van buy a little DVD USB machine, but if really like up upgrade it.

    See here's where I'm kinda confused about these smartphones. Do I really have to tether if I have a hotspot? I mean I just turn on the hotspot on the 'phone and the wireless on the notebook and away I go. Is this the same as tethering? I don't know why it's so slow downloading this particular app when downloads from the Market do it at totally respectable speeds. They're not 650MB, but still.

    yeah, hotspot can be considered wireless tethering, do you use the stock verizon 3g hotspot app?

    Yes I do. Is there something better than the stock 3g? I've seen the 3g apps on the Marketplace but I wasn't sure if they were something that I could use or not.
