    Btw, that info is based on a Nokia N95 8GB as I don't have a 3G iPhone, so I assume the iPhone 3G would also get the 3G coverage.

    This is freaking awesome cause here in Hawaii our DSL and Road Runner speeds tank our infrastructure on either blow royal donkey balls. DSL caps out at 11mbps if you qualify and you pay out the wazoo for it. And RR sucks cause where I live there's only 1 bandwidth pipe to go for two cities. So the bandwidth sharing sucks so I don't even bother with going cable. So having these awesome bandwidth opportunities via mobile is fantastic can't wait and I don't even care if it's going to cost me an extra $10 a month I'd even go another $20 a month if I had to.

    I second that motion! My parents have 3G and they're in the woods of Pennsylvania. I'm on one of the biggest college campuses in Virginia and I don't have 3G?!

    With these advances does anyone think that the actually 3g network will be increase in range and stability by default. Whats the point in having the new network capabilities if its only available 5-8% of the time? And what will it fall back to when its not available... Regular 3G? I'm just hoping this will be better all around. I plan on buying the new phone without question in June, but I'd like the service to match the product optimally.

    Keep in mind that your country is A LOT smaller than the US and updating the towers there doesn't take nearly as much time or money to do so.

    No Chris, England is better in EVERY way!!! Haven't you seen that attitude from dozens of UK MMI users?

    It makes me sick every time AT&T starts talking about improving 3g speeds. Their lack of coverage is pathetic. I can travel 25 miles either way & I'm in a major city & still no coverage.
    AT&T has around 317 cities/towns that have 3G. You will know how sad that is when you realize there are over 18,000 cities/towns in the US.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.

    and just as a side note, unless ATT does something about coverage, especially at my house where i have half a bar, i will switch to VZW even though i love my iphone, guess ill have to settle for crackberry or wait for an EV-DO iphone

    The U.S. is behind almost every country in any ranking system for internet speeds.

    You people keep complaining about AT&T's coverage, and I have no problem with them. They've got great service here (New Orleans) and that's all that matters to me. But if you can't get a signal with AT&T where you live, why the hell would you buy a phone that's locked to that network?

    I'm sick of people whining about not having 3G in their area. It's not like you bought the phone and had 3G in your city and then AT&T took it away. You CHOOSE to pay for service you don't get. That's all on you!

    No worries, dude. This is one of the few sites I've been to where people don't really seem to interact with each other much. Everyone seems to just post and move on instead of actually replying to questions and comments.

    You see people quoting other people's posts, but not to respond to that person, but merely elaborate on their post or disagree. Don't think there's many "friendships" going on at these forums. lol

    Full internet? At what speed? Until you have decent HSDPA speeds you have not experienced full internet on your phone. T-Mobile here in the UK have been upgrading their network to 7.2 Mb for a while, they are by far the best in the UK but this is a theoretical maximum - the most I've seen on my phone is 1.9Mb but it rarely dips below 1.1Mb


    The first Modem I used was 2400baud and cost 799 but I was already an old man back then (my son recently asked who was king when I was born....)

    Yeah.Ok. I travel a lot. So do my co-workers. They are always complaining about their service. I get a lot of requests from them to use my phone because their service is weak...T-Mo, Sprint, Verizon. I stick with AT&T because they have the map covered. The only place I lost signal once was in the panhandle of Oklahoma and they have since fixed that dead zone.

    It just pisses me off that I have to buy a new iphone just to get faster internet when my 3G is supposed to be at 14 MBPS but AT&T is restricting it! AT&T should unrestrict it's 3G services before going to a totally different technology.

    3G is 384Mbs
    HSDPA can be up tyo 14400 but that does involve very heavy investment in infrastructure.
