AT&T Nexus One Data
Planning on getting a Nexi. Want to here from people on AT&T using a nexi.
Do you have unlimited data plan?
What is the upload/download speeds like? Are you able to stream Last FM and Pandora?
I currently have a n95 on AT&T. I began using it 3 months ago. For the first month I had 3.5g at data speeds of almost 7 mb/s, but since almost 2 months now it shows 3g and data speeds very from 19 to 48 kb/s. Do any one of you have slower data speeds in the San Francisco Bay area?

Download speeds are going to vary dramatically based on location.
As far as your n95, have you called AT&T to make sure they have the correct IMEI? Do you have the unlimited smartphone plan? I have read about some cases where AT&T will throttle access if they don't have the correct IMEI and/or smartphone data plan attached to the device. It could also just be the network in your area is saturated in which case you'd be out of luck.
I don't stream any radio stuff, so I can't comment. I'm not in the Bay area, either, so my speed stats won't be much help (although I am pretty satisfied with them most of the time).--

i use the unlimited 15 dollar data plan with my nexus on ATT. same plan i used when i had both my n95's. just note though that ATT has moved most nexus users onto the 30 dollar smartphone plan, even with an unlocked nexus. only a few of us left like me have not been moved. it might be if you havent upgraded with ATT in a few years then they are not targetting you. seems to be a common factor in all the people who have not been hit.
data speeds will vary, but ci get 2.5Mbps download 1.5Mbps upload usually, sometimes higher. all depends on your area. i will say that the nexus CPU and RAM is much faster than the n95's, and my n95 cpu was the bottle next for my speed tests. for example at home i have verizon FIOS, and my n95 always capped at around 5-6Mbps, never got any higher even though the connection was wide open. the nexus gets up around 14Mbps typically, sometimes higher. also the nexus supports wireless N.
