    I was just downloading the latest Java update from Sun over AT&T
    Wireless HSDPA with my V3xx, and the sustained download speed as
    measured by Firefox was 133 KBytes/sec*, which compares pretty well to
    wired consumer broadband. See <>
    What's not to like? :)

    * Over 1 Mbps net transfer speed, or nearly 1.3 Mbps raw speed

    For comparison purposes:

    The original EV-DO service had asymmetric data rates, with much
    faster download (for fast delivery to the handset) than upload, with
    quoted average download speeds of around 400 to 700 kbps, with burst
    rates of 2 Mbps, and 10X slower average upload speeds of 40 to 60

    EV-DO Rev. A (Revision A) service steps up the upload rates to near
    parity, with average upload speeds at 300 to 400 kbps and average
    download speeds of 450 to 800 kbps. In the Philadelphia region,
    Verizon quotes typical download speeds of 600 kbps to 1.4 mbps (burst
    up to 3.1 mbps) and typical upload speeds of 500 to 800 kbps (burst
    up to 1.8 mbps).

    That AT&T has been playing catch up with Sprint.
