Yep, am on it right now. I can get up to about 6Mbps on it.

I do. But I live in a city.

However, I have noticed on long train journeys that reception on my iPhones (3GS and 4) has been about 95 percent reliable.

tbf though, I live in a city too.  Went riding in Afan forest and Brechfa this weekend, and on my 02 iPhone 4 I had no reception for pretty much the whole weekend.  My friend on his Voda iPhone 4 had reception and at least 2g data access the whole time.
