Was visiting relatives about an hour outside San Francisco and twice got crazy fast 3g speeds while using wifi tether 3.1-pre111. Mind you, this is not a 4g area. Both times it happened it lasted about 15-20 minutes. Once was Saturday night, the other Sunday afternoon. Here's a screenshot of Sunday's speed.
This is about 5-6 times faster than my usual 3g tether speeds... Christmas present from big red?
Side note - this happened the first time just after I downloaded 3.1-pre111. Maybe there's some goodies inside? (Pure speculation, of course)
