    Question 3G/browser speeds on DX are terrible?

    I just downloaded that Speedtest.net application and did several tests from different areas:

    D/L U/L
    1.92mbps 0.68mbps
    1.66 0.53
    0.99 0.39
    1.53 0.70

    I had 4 bars when I did these tests and I was outside trying to get the best reception...Are these normal 3G speeds or am I on the low end? Isn't there a throttle hack or something out there can help me, I forget what it's called. Even my browser experience on my DX is going extremely slow. I'm still on 2.2.1, rooted but not on a ROM. I constantly update my roaming capabilities by doing that *228 stuff. Can anyone recommend something for me to do? Or am I just s*it out of luck?

    Thanks guys.

    In all honesty I get 3 bars of 3G on average in my area and my tests are worse than yours, I get around ~0.6 down.. Can't remember the U/L number off the top of my head but it was low. As far as I know the theoeretical max speed of Verizon's EVDO Rev. A data is about 3.1 mbps down... and you're unlikely to get those speeds with the network as congested as it is so as far as I know your speeds are pretty average...

    Tests using speedtest can (and do) vary greatly. While I usually get 2.2 to 2.4 down and .9 to 1.0 up, I've also had extremely low numbers at times

    I think the only thing that matters here is Verizon's LTE broadband spanks the ever-loving holy HELL out of ever other carrier in existence, and then some. The future, baby.

    So 3G on Verizon is around 3.1 mbps down? Thats the max you could "possibly" get? Thats what they advertise Im guessing?

    I also took some speedtests using my android browser and they seem to be in the same boat as the speedtest.net app I tried. Im trying to find out what Verizon says there 3G speeds are, like what they have advertised? When Google on my phone takes some time to load up theres a problem somewhere. Something is wrong on my phone, hardware, I dont know.
