Apple iPhone 4G vs 3G: Are you bothered?

As you probably already know the iPhone 4G is one of the most highly anticipated devices which seems set for a launch in 2010, however many people are overlooking the fact that some carriers are struggling to offer 3G connectivity in areas, let alone 4G.

Currently if you are in a good area for 3G connectivity you can receive up to 14.0 Mbit/s on the downlink and 5.8 Mbit/s on the uplink, whereas when 4G is rolled out it has a theoretical speed of 100 Mbit/s in the downlink and 50 Mbit/s in the uplink .

Personally if carriers offered a solid 3G connection even half of their maximum speeds this would be more than sufficient to many, therefore what is the point of offering 4G connectivity if decent coverage is unlikely.

Therefore I thought I would ask customers what they would prefer, would your prefer patchy 4G connectivity or consistent stable 3G connectivity?
