But it's never happened to me (but I'm not a big phone talker). Now I do drop to one bar quite frequently, but that's enough to make a call or do data transfer, no problem.

I went ahead and installed SpeedTest just now to answer your question a little more directly. It says I'm getting 1.89Mbps down and 1.59Mbps up, with a 192ms ping. I'm actually in Dublin at the moment, a suburb about 20 miles NW of downtown; and I'm showing 4 bars.

What's funny is that I get three times better upload speed on 3G than I do on Wi-Fi! My Time Warner Road Runner connection is pathetic for uploads, I'm only showing 0.47Mbps up on Wi-Fi! 10.07Mbps down and 63ms ping, which is more important...but it's still funny.

What is nice is that you have higher upload speed then download. Usually download is 4x bigger than upload.

Whoops...I entered that wrong, it's fixed. Down is faster than up...but not by much.

ISP companies typically maximize download bandwidth while restricting upload bandwidth due to customers caring more about how fast they get something as opposed to sending something. It is usually very unusual to find upload speeds higher than download speeds unless you are running some sort of online file server or FTP server.

I also think that a reason is the fact that most users download a lot more than they upload. Actually, to most users the upload consist only in sending requests or plain text chats and emails.

Actually I have an EVO and I haven't used any Apple products since my Apple II. You probably wouldn't know what that is though because you are 13.
