Connection Speeds and download transfer rates
Both the connection speed and download transfer rate of docomo 3G seems to vary from 1Mbps to 3.5Mbps [max] and download speed maximum of 500KBps. But for some areas, the network seemed to switch back and forth between EDGE and 3G network making it very unstable for smooth downloads.
