    Something is very wrong with Sal's video. Either AT&T sucks or the Bold 2 does or both. I just ran the same test using my Storm running 5.0
    and was able to download the same page in a full 1 minute and 15 seconds faster.

    Yeah I did check those videos that is why I decided to test my Storm against the 9700. So either the Bold renders like crap or AT&T or something is def wrong.

    Cuz I am getting under 40 seconds every time.

    Might be att, don't blame the bold J, 1:42 here on EDGE with cleared cache, less than 40 seconds over wifi + EDGE and less than 30 seconds on wifi only.

    T-Mobile here

    I tried it twice with cleared cache, Verizon 1XEV with signal near full strength on Storm 9530 running 4.7.0.151. Both times took 1:40 or so.
