One and a half years ago, I was very impressed with download speeds of 5.76 MBit/s as measured by a German computer magazine in life networks. These days I have upgraded by equipment a bit and now have a stick that outpaces this value by far. At home, without any special setup, no external antenna, just the plain basic setup, I now get downlink speeds in excess of 11 MBit/s over HSPA. Have a look at the picture on the left where the speed shown as 1.4 MByte/s (around 11 MBit/s). Also interesting how stable the curve is with only small variations, i.e. no wild oscillations, etc. Very impressive and surely not the end point in the race for every faster and better wireless networks.
