Using my BB tethered to my laptop I get average 300 to 500k/s downloads so thats ok but surfing from the phone seems slower.
Any suggestions? tweaks? anything?
Also tried Opera not much faster on the 8703e, the Moto Q's browser is 2 to 3 seconds faster.
Given your average download speeds, I would guess it's the network (Sprint). I've benchmarked my VZW 8703e many times and get 930 - 1020Kb/s downstream speeds.
