So I saw my first "H" whilst browsing on the phone the other day (in Chiswick).

Drove around the North Circular today and device changed from "3G" to "H" whenever data was being transferred. Emails and web were blisteringly quick.

Drove home to Richmond and... No "h" grrrr!

I'm north of Chiswick near Hanger Lane and it's 3G there also. Man that's a small HSDPA area!

They are rolling out across "london" and the other four "biggest cities" this year. I got "H" today from near Brent Cross to Hangar Lane. The other day it was down in Chiswick but by the river - so it appears they are upgrading cells all over... thank goodness!

Remember H only appears when actually transferring data - rest of the time it shows 3g....

Which ROM do you need to see the "H"... just the standard Orange ROM or some other one?

Thanks,
Pete

Moved hotels nearer to where the HSDPA signal was received. have used HTweakC on WM6 "black" edition on my SPV M3100.

I am getting fast enough speeds to say "Hey I got broadband on my mobile..." Its just a shame i live in Birmingham and HSDPA has not been rolled out there yet...

heres a screengrab of my downloading off usenet using my hsdpa connection opposite tesco in the purley cross area of croydon. CR0/CR2 postcode.
