Noted, but I've yet to understand why data speeds matter so, especially on a tiny handset, in the context of the forum poster (not you) who rails against usage-based charges for data, and in this case, volume charges that even I might consider on the high side at $21-30/marginal GB. If you're tethering, there are better ways to handle both itinerant, intermittent, and volume use.
