I am currently running the Liberty Gingerbread rom. I've noticed for the past week or two my 3g has been horribly slow. Im talking maybe .5 mbs. I seem to notice it alot when I'm driving since I listen to Sirius through my phone. It will cut out to buffer, etc. I have a 45 min commute so its not like I'm in one single town with crappy reception. The other thing I thought since I'm using about 3-4 GB a month in data download mostly due to listening to sirius is that VZ is limiting me. Does the Liberty rom have the data throttling hack in it that removes verizons throttling? Dont know if its just me or if anyone else noticed this recently.

Well I updated to .591 yesterday. Sirius wont even connect. I am maybe getting .3 mbs download. Upload is about .9 mbs. Compared it to another droid x on froyo. Sitting right next to each other. Mine downloaded at .3 mbs. The froyo droid downloaded well over 1 mbs. Dont know wheter to try a different rom or go back to froyo. Really no one else is having an issue like this?

Mine has slowed a bit, but then again Im over 3gigs this month. It could be Verizon slowing things down, other than that no real big issues with data.

Deodex Ginger Man is ready for action.....

I am having the same problem as well when I am at work. However on occasion it will work just as good as it did with froyo (about 2mbps).

I went to droidforums.net and found all kinds of threads about data problems on .591. I went back to .588 and its much better. Sirius now works and my download speeds are 1.5 to 2 mbs. .591 was too buggy for me anyway
