Me -- I prefer GPS over WiFi. The reception is so good around here, and WiFi isn't going to speed things up. If I need WiFi, I'll use my laptop for that instead. Although WiFi may save on Canadian data, I'm already on the $100 data plan which, while expensive, does give me enough download to surf to my heart's content now...

Try Opera Mini 4 -- I find it a little faster than BlackBerry Browser. Its user interface is unfamiliar, but as long as I avoid the scrollwheel (and use the 2/4/6/8 keys to scroll around, and 5 to zoom in/out ala Wii/iPhone style), I also find it loads webpages faster than BlackBerry browser does, if image compression is turned to a high level.
Also, for web browsing from a laptop, try Propel (Internet Accelerator, Internet Accelerator Download, Web Accelerator, Dial-Up Accelerators
) which is a good brand of a dialup accelerator boosts the web browsing speed about 4 or 5 times when surfing on a laptop tethered to a BlackBerry. It's also good for saving data when on Canadian plans like me. (make sure to turn off progressive download)
