    Has anybody living in North California experienced this??

    I have full bars and DSL reports claims my speed to be 6 kbit/sec WTF???

    Al - I think Sprint gave me your bandwidth since I'm experiencing about 50% better speed than I have in the past week here in the office in downtown SF.

    165kbps via DSLreports in the past week v. 200kbps today.

    I'm in Modesto and I don't get EVDO, but in SF you are supposed to get Power Vision at speeds way higher that what you are reporting. Let's say about 300 or more.

    I work in Fremont and I'm getting between 90-160kpps inside. But Getting about 250kbps outside. Yesterday it was definitely faster at about 250 inside and 300+ outside.

    I can't even connect here in Texas. Sprint support says there's a nationwide problem.

    I'm in southeast Texas- so I'm still on the old 1rt system. How do you like your EV-DO?

    EVDO makes the whole upgrade (from the 650) worthwhile.

    That test seems to be MUCH more accurate. I don't say this because I got a 1.2Mb connection and I want to think more of it, I say this because when I USB DUN to my notebook I can download from giganews.com at about 125KBps consistently. That site however is TERRIBLE for measuring really fast connections. My 9Mb home line only clocked in 5.67, whereas I consistently get just under 10Mb downloads from giganews.com.

    Wow. It's reporting much faster speeds.

    1st pass: 745kbps
    2nd pass: 983kbps
    3rd pass: 995kbps

    What I've noticed about 2wire is that they download only a 500KB file vs. the 1MB in my previous attempts on dslreport. Nevertheless, I just ran the 600KB (500KB is not an option) one on DSLreports.com/mspeed, and it reported a paltry 182kbps as well.

    Not sure which to believe.

    Someone probably figured out how to stream porn over EVDO.

    Anyone else in North Cali getting over 300kbps on DSLreports?

    i tried cnet's bandwith tester and got 584.5 kb/s which is closer to dsl reports, i think 2wire results are a little skewed.

    Must have been some issues. I'm in SF and I kept getting "Network is not responding now" messages when I would try to send an SMS.

    Dslreports.com is not reliable on my Treo since Blazer hangs for 5-10 seconds after downloading a 1MB file before displaying 'click now'. I'll try out 2wire, but that site appears to err on the high side from some of the results posted.
