    Given we've got a few threads about 3G/HSPA+ on the Veer, I figured I'd test my Veer against some other 3G devices I've got floating around. I'm in the south-western suburbs of Sydney, Australia using the Telstra network (HSPA+ DC capable).

    The following devices were tested using my Linux based laptop:
    Sierra AirCard 312U (HSPA+ DC, 850/2100MHz)
    Sierra AirCard USB 308 (HSPA+ 21 megabit, 850/2100MHz)
    HP Veer (850/2100MHz)
    Palm Pre 2 (850MHz)

    Average of 5 test results, Melbourne (Micron21) speed test server:
    AirCard 312U: 60ms ping, 7.896mbps down, 2.244mbps up
    AirCard USB308: 85ms ping, 6.714mbps down, 1.922mbps up
    Pre 2: 207ms ping, 1.948mbps down, 0.212mbps up
    Veer: 161ms ping, 4.356mbps down, 0.726mbps up.

    The Veer was highly erratic though, ranging from 2.07 to 7.07mbps down... all without showing me a HSPA+ symbol. This could be because my Veer is a dud (yes Twitterers, it was mine that ended up in the Qualcomm upload mode!) or any number of reasons, so I'll keep testing and see what I come up with.

    7mbps throughput on a 7.2 device wouldn't happen in real world conditions though, so I'm pretty sure the lack of a HSPA+ symbol is merely cosmetic.

    Edit: Also, a screenshot of an on-device test, from the Sydney (Optus) mirror:

    But then my real question is, what is the underlying logic to trigger the H+ symbol? I've seen it on AT&T unboxing videos.

    But point is moot, 7.2Mbps (or 14.4Mbps) is barely HSPA+. HSPA+ is release 7 and beyond, i.e. At least 21Mbps.
