I'm getting much lower throughput numbers on my Droid X than my notebook computer.

    Hey everyone,

    I was just wondering something.. I ran the Speedtest.Net app that is available for free in the AppStore to see what throughput I was getting on my Droid X. I have a 15Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload Internet connection. Although I get approximately these numbers when I do a speedtest on my computer, I get around 2.5 to 2.9 Mbps (instead of 15 Mbps) download speeds on my phone and only between 89 and 207 Kbps (instead of 3Mbps) upload speeds from my phone. If I switch to 3G I get better upload speeds than I do through my cable modem connection. (3G upload speeds are coming in about 240 Kbps.) Anyone know why I'm not getting better numbers when doing speedtests from my Droix X?

    Thanks.
