Impossible to go over 384 kbps. Some towers have been upgraded to allow up to 300. The average is still 50-125. I would believe 200 - 300 kbps but not 400.
Some recent reports:
New York City: 184kb/s
Queens, NY: 186kb/s-230kb/s
Chicago suburbs: 160kb/s
S. Florida: 176kb/s-204kb/s
Washington DC: 196kb/s-207kb/s
Marion, Indiana: 186kb/s-196kb/s
North Seattle: 190kb/s
West of East Orange, New Jersey: 365kb/s (doubtful)
Also keep in mind there is no real accurate cell phone speed test. DSLreports is sometimes way off, especially if the website is accessed with a proxy server.
