8.31 Mbps... whaaa?

As described in my previous post I have been using my Nexus One on T-Mobile to connect my iPad to the internet when there's no hotspot available. I ran a speed test on it the other day at a cafe called Byrd's in downtown Houston at around 6pm and to my surprise I got speeds of 8.31 Mbps. Suck on that AT&T!

Update 5/18/10: It was pointed out to me that the specs of the phone only allow for up to 7.2 Mbps. I was definitely logged into the phone; I tested on several different speed test apps to verify, so I'm not sure how this speed was achieved.
