    3G's supposed to be faster. I don't have any details. Maybe an expert will jump in with some info.

    3.5G HSDPA (at&t) is the fastest, and will become atleast twice as fast when it gets bumped up to 3.75G.

    I dont know when you will have the upgrades there, but we have had them here for some time now, so you should have it within 1 years time.

    They consider EVDO 3G as well, its just not what you are thinking about. You are referring to GSM 3G. Which is now actually at 3.5G there, i am surprised that they advertise it as 3G everywhere still. For us they stopped advertising it as 3G when we got bumped up to 3.5G, and now 3.75G

    Heard and saw 3G being aslmost as fast as wifi. Its pretty sweet, but my EVDO 8830 does just as fast as my co-workers 3G PDA. (both phones in same spot with full bars)

    3G is pretty impressive when it comes to speeds, it is just a few seconds behind of wifi, with 4G going into play, the existing wifi will be solely used for network features. Still my EVDO (Latest Rev.) if still fairly fast comare to the older 8310 i had.

    They are the same technically. They are not the same in terms of speed when comparing CMDA to GSM. 3G on the GMS is supposedly faster than EVDO (that's debatable). So while EDVO is 3G on CDMA, it is not equal to 3G on GSM.

    The link below has a great chart under "Mobile telephone interfaces" listing the different speeds.

    agreed nice chart,people just dont get it att HAS the potential to put out those speeds with HDSPA but the cant do it unless they put all new towers up $$$ dont think they will do that so att will give their people UMTS which is faster the EDGE but not faster then EVDO-A, any way done with topic,most people dont know what they r talking about,wish they did the research before posting,anyway who cares BLACKBERRIES RULE with all carries

    Wipe Device with BIS

    EVDO is a 3G spec
    The question should be is EVDO or HDSPA faster

    And the answer is: It depends on what version of which you are speaking of
