Wireless 3G services finally reach their potential?

Sprint has recently annouced rollout of their ‘EV-DO’ 3G service with data speeds averaging 400-700kbps and peak speeds of 2Mbps.

So what was the 3G service advertised about 3 years ago when I eagerly raced out to buy one of the new phones for 250 bucks? I think Sprint (and others) jumped the gun somewhat, as that service (later known as 2.5G) only reached averages of around 120kbps.

Nice to know though that wireless broadband is finally a reality.
