??? Tethered Via USB is the same as direct download to your PC - you are limited by USB speeds only... Not really a cell phone comparison...

USB 2.0 is more then fast enough (unlike Bluetooth) to handle much higher speeds then 3G.. So USB is NOT the limiting factor here.. it's the hardware/network.

Damn cellphone providers suck in Canada
Here is mine from Estonia to Hamilton



It costs $1.5 per day, no contract and no caps whatsoever. This month I used up 88gb, try that on Rogers.


And to the local server

^^^ These speed tests are over your cellphone (tethered???) or home internet?

Rogers is faster if you're using a faster device (new Iphone 3GS, or a Rocket Stick), much faster.

And Rogers home internet is the fastest in Ontario... and that's what counts. If people are still using torrents and complaining about speeds that's no ones fault but their own.

3gs is not any faster than regular 3g. Use PDAnet to share over wifi, bluetooth is too slow.

This is using a 3.5g USB modem(same as Rogers stick). The highest speed I've seen was 700KBps downloading Windows update.

Still, Rogers stick is $80 a month for 5gb + $0.03 for each additional MB plus $7 access fee. If I were to use Rogers stick in Canada as I'm using it here in Estonia it would cose me $80(for first 5gb) + $2340(additional 78gb I've used) + $7(bs system access fee) = $2427 while I'm paying $45 in a shitty eastern european country. Canada has a long way to go.

^^i couldn't believe the data prices in ukraine. I get 500mb of transfer here for 15/month.

I just bought a sim to use in ukraine, it was 90 UAH (roughly 11$) for 1gig transfer. On prepaid. That i can use anytime in the next 6 months. Also, incoming calls, even on prepaid, are ALWAYS free.

Go vlad, you've found a way in which eastern europe is better than north america!

3gs is 7.2Mbps, 3g is 3.6Mbps.
Now the question is, what are the real world numbers?
