I've had my AT&T Captivate for over a month now and I have NEVER received anything close to an 8mbps HSPA+ data connection. And I'm sitting in my office in the middle of downtown Houston, TX. Not exactly the middle of nowhere. A vast majority of the time I'm on the EDGE network or my phone says 3G but data-related tasks crawl or stall out.

The Captivate does not support HSPA+ currently. Despite the fact the phone is capable, it has been disabled by AT&T.
You could make an arguement that the phone isn't 3G capable at all and I'd believe you. Freakin' thing sits on 2G EDGE all day in the middle of the 4th largest city in the US!
