I live in Birmingham, Alabama and just upgraded to the Bold from the 8700c. The 3G signal at home is generally stronger than EDGE, but it still gets weak sometimes and the phone drops to EDGE. So, to answer your question, 3G may be "stronger", but still unreliable.
I even had GPRS on the screen the other night. AT&T's network is simply unstable. Hopefully, 3G will get better as they convert towers to 850MHz.
