    Throttling hacks are up to much speculation...

    The speed of your 3G depends on a LOT of things.
    Signal strength (even if the phone shows 4 bars it may not be a fully strong signal)
    Amount of cell towers in the area
    Amount of people using the towers at any given time
    Age of the tower, and it's efficiency in broadcasting/recieving.

    What a throttle hack does do, is prevent Verizon from limiting your speed during, say, a very large download or sustained activity (like torrenting or tethering to a laptop or multiple devices for x amoint of days)
