The past few days our inbox has been flooded with emails from you, our readers, letting us know that you've experienced significant increases in AT&T 3G data speeds. And this makes perfect sense if you consider that all of the reported claims have come from the 6 cities that AT&T recently flipped the HSPA 7.2 switch on.

Located in Chicago I've personally witnessed a slight increase in data speed but I am still no where close to the 7.2 that AT&T has promised. Drop us a line in the comments and let us know what speeds you are pulling from AT&T.
[Thank to everyone who sent in their speeds!]
