    Since installing the "Show UMTS and HSDAP (sic?) icon instead of 3G" patch, I've seen the network indicator switch from "U" to "H" several times. Unfortunately, the download speeds (as indicated by speedtest.net) don't seem to vary much. Still, my initial interest for starting this thread was just to verify that I was indeed getting on Bell's HSPA+ network. Depending on the reliability of the patch, I guess the answer is yes.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Sorry if I hijacked your thread for other questions. I figured since you had our fellow Canadian users attention...



    Did some testing today between APNs. pda.bell.ca seems slower (2-4m) than pda2.bell.ca (4-6m). Not sure why that makes a difference.

    Could simply be a matter of congestion on the server (is everyone by default using pda.bell.ca?), or congestion between the server and wherever you are running speedtest against.
