    It's all going to depend on a ton of things, such as signal strength, network traffic, location etc.

    When are you testing your speed? Testing in peak usage hours will add some variance to your speeds.

    Yeah saw that, lol

    I have noticed though that my speeds here in the phoenix area have become crappy over the last week. Of course we have been getting rain lately... Something we are not used to

    I lived in that area for 2 years (yuma) and i really got used to it ALWAYS being sunny. No need to check the forecast for a weekend outing becasue the weather will be great. Don't miss the summers though, thats for sure.

    3G slowing down?

    I have noticed this in a very small amount. My best guess is that they are updating and getting new phone put onto the market. Also DROID will get 2.1 shortly. (I hope)

    I wouldnt hold your breath
