It's just under my isp's connection of 1.2Mbps (up from .5Mbps of 4 months). Rural life. Either I get used to demanding less or I spend my life angry.

You can stream very nice sounding radio at 1 mb/s. YouTube sometimes requires that you let the cache fill before watching. Most web pages open quickly enough. Beats dialup.
My ex in Texas uses a 3g dongle. 10 miles from the high tech capital of America and no cable, no DSL.

How much browsing requires +1 Mbps on a cellphone ?

I had Nextel BB 7100i with Opera Mini and it was slow - but that was ~60kbps.
By comparison 1x is fast.
I have a Sprint Treo 800w, and its relatively fast - as long as I have a connection. Many times I get a connection issue attempting to connect to data.
Voice isn't bad.

I'd rate it as a service similar to AT&T here in SoCal, with faster service on AT&T.
Latency is a little better on Sprint (using pockey PuTTy SSH client on Treo 800w vs iSSH client on iPhone 3GS). Both are very reliable - Pocket PuTTy client loses connection (as does Windows LCS) during a call or incoming SMS which can be a pain (work related).

Or you can stop voting in politicians who hate you.
