I can't help with respect to France but it so happens that yesterday 
while in a room inside of the Washington DC convention center I ran the 
DSLreports Internet Speed test and I was clocking ~126kbps on a Verizon 
Wireless EVDO connection to an N800 running the stock OS2007. The two

The second one tests in both directions but is not specific to mobile
