Yes. I do not know the technical details, but from what I understand, because you are opening up the higher bandwidth for uploads, you also see higher download speeds. For example, when I was using Cognition back in December, I was getting download speeds around 600kbps and upload speeds around 250kbps. Since I went to the JK4 modem, which is a HSUPA-enabled modem, I have seen 5500kbps downloads and 1500kbps uploads. All ATT modems for the Captivate are not HSUPA-enabled, but the ones for the international Galaxy S I-9000 are.Motorola Droid > HTC Aria > Samsung Captivate (Serendipity 7) > Virgin Mobile Optimus V (CM7) > Motorola Atrix > HTC Flyer

Even the Inspire is capped for the high speed upload. Only the iPhone 4 is "allowed" to access this. Cognition puts the H in the bar, but HSUPA is NOT working... I think it just means it is available. If you are running pretty much any other custom ROM and see the H, you have the higher speed upload.
This does translate into faster web browsing, even though the download is more important for speed almost all the time. The reason for this is the chattiness of web browsing. We are constantly talking back to the site, telling it that YES WE HAVE RECEIVED, PLEASE SEND MORE. That happens faster, with reduced latency with HSUPA. This translates into an overall faster experience.
The latency is probably the item that helps the most.
