Do a search for "sprint" and "evdo" or just browse through the forums. You'll get alot of peoples responses about their speed tests. Also note, you have to understand that EVDO is not offered everywhere yet, as sprint has yet to upgrade their sites to fully give you EVDO, so if you're in a large metro market, you should check to see if they have EVDO coverage for you.
I have the Sprint 7250, before evdo , and after i upgraded it to 1xEV, and i noticed a big difference in surfing speeds. An example would be google local (or google maps) doing a search on the 1xRTT network was a bit time consuming, and now with my 4.1 and EV upgrade, it was very fast.
Browsing will depend on what content you're viewing, but in general it is faster than the 1xRTT.
But like everyone else says , if your'e a DC user, then the 7520 is the way to go . My opinion, the 7520 is a brick. It does the job, but compared to the regular 7250, it is larger.
