Rural England disagrees with you. 5MB/s? We don't even get anywhere near that in home broadband speeds where I live (Somerset, near Bath). I certainly never get 3G in my village home. Even in Plymouth where I go to uni, there's not universal 3G coverage - patchy at best. Nope, I will have to say from my own experience that the UK's 3G coverage is currently lacking - even in cities!

5Mbps is hardly slow at all (what I can get from Three with good signal). And granted, most of the time I don't get that, but usually I get at least 2Mbps. More than enough to stream video and download stuff.
I watch stuff on iPlayer, TVcatchup or Sky Go all the time over 3G).
1 - Only a few areas in the US have 4G.
2 - Most of the UK does have 3G.
Probably should mention I'm on the O2 network. Maybe the others are better.
