    I've been searching for threads discussing EVDO speeds, and I can't find any info on increasing EVDO speeds. At my house, I'm getting anywhere from 324 to 579 kbps, and my friend's iPhone 3GS gets around 900 to 1000 kbps.

    Thanks for your help!

    You are running tests on two completely different cell carriers and towers. You simply may have less of a signal in that particular spot on Sprint and AT&T may have a closer tower for your friend. Try the same test with the situations reversed.

    I see...I suppose not all carriers have great coverage at all places.

    Thanks!

    I've noticed Sprint's service slowing down in the sf bay area where I live..

    I used to get ~700-900kbs consistentnly over my phone or via my sprint broadband card.. now it's closer to ~250-400

    With Sprint, I was getting 1.2mbps on speed tests. Download speeds while tethering easily averaged 150 KB/s

    While tethering, I used speedtest.net and dslreports.com

    Dslreports.com has a mobile speed test as well, so you can find out your speed using the Pre's browser
