    What speed do you have using PDA Net with the ev-do box checked, on a 700p?
    Thanks

    sorry, that's general speed, I know it will change depending on how busy the network is, among other factors.

    you must be in a 1xrtt area, and not in an ev-do area. I was asking about the high speed areas.
    Thanks

    Nope..I'm in Chicago with full EV-DO access...in fact..i don't think i've ever seen green arrows indicating non-evDO...only blue

    i dont know what the problem is...when i use the dsl speed test..i only get around ~150k as well....people have reported speeds of up to 500kb/s...

    my guess is that there too much of a demand in Chicago due to its population and too many users trying to access EV-DO service slowing everyone down..perhaps like a cable modem? the more people in ure neighborhood who have it...the slower the connection

    Are you using DUN or Proxy mode? How are you determining your speed?

    I am using DUN mode. I am determining speed by accessing http://text.dsl.dslreports.com/mspeed and using the 1mb test as that is the most accurate long-term

    With PDAnet and USB cable, I use the CNET bandwidth meter and get 400 - 500 kbps consistently here in bay area.

    I'm in the SF Bay Area. I get 800K-1.5Mb when using USB and around 400K when using Bluetooth.

    I finally installed it. I get 2.4mbps. but when I go to desktop settings, and select ev-do speed, my 700p will not talk to the desktop software. that is using the dial up, or proxy settings. what gives with that?

    Here's my results (EVDO area). I tested proxy and DUN performance using 2wire.com and dslreports mobile test. I was surprised with the varying ranges of the tests. Also, I figured DUN would be faster than proxy but that wasn't the case.

    Proxy Hi Low Range = 276kbps - 750kbps, Average = 550kbps - 650kbps
    DUN Hi Low Range = 142kbps - 500kbps, Average = 250kbps - 400kbps

    *Note*
    Amazingly there wasn't much difference between the 2wire and dslreports results. This is why I didn't split the results out by test site.

    Speakeasy.net tests run at 4am on the Sprint EvDO network, full signal,
    with 700p PDANet attached by USB Cable:

    750kbps Down/125kbps Up

    Looks like Sprint has their local backbone in my area set to max out at 768kbps/128kbps per EvDO connection, kinda like the cheap DSL/Cable Modem plans.

    I just set this up for a friend... with EVDO checked, we were getting 530kbps down and 105kbps up. Pretty impressive for a Palm OS Treo tethered to a laptop! Bonus, the Treo charges whilst you use it this way. Minus, Verizon B**tards charge an extra $15/month for this. Still, quite fast!
