I was spoiled by using the 3G connection with the Nokia N900 in Europe that using Edge here in the US is unacceptable. T-mobile is the only provider in the US able to provide 3G data for this device, so I got a SIM card to show you how fast the network is in New York City.
T-mobile USA was consistent after several tries. Downloads are usually 2.25Mb/s and uploads around 0.35Mb/s. Run your own speed test with your provider and paste your results in the comments below.
