Talk iPhone 4S data speeds here
Not sure if it just me but my iPhone 4S on Verizon takes FOREVER to load on 3G, like 2-3 minutes per page. On Wi-Fi it's blazing fast.....I live in NY area so my connection should be good and I had a Droid X before hand and it was fine on 3G. I called Verizon but they just said it will take some time for everything to work. It's now 6 hours later and it's still slow. Any suggestions to fix?

What kind of speeds are you guys getting? My WiFi speed is faster than the speed of my MacBook Pro!
I'm on Verizon:
On WiFi - 10.92mbps down, 1.44mbps up
On 3G - 1.53mbps down, .68mbps up
In my house I only have 3 bars... so I'm thinking 1.53 isn't too bad, but I'm usually on wifi at home anyway.

Speed test aren't always the best way to quantify how fast download speeds are. I've owned both Verizon and AT&T iP4 (at the same time for a bit) and while the AT&T always had a higher download speed per the app, real life was much closer than the results read.

My speed tests are so inconsistent I don't know what to think, both on 4 and 4S. The best I got today on 4S was 4.5/1, but sometimes it was under 1. Last week I actually got one test of 8.5/6! But I usually have only 2 or 3 bars at home.

MIne is FAST. When I switched to Verizon I got a used OG Droid and noticed speeds seemed to be slower than on the EVO I forced to roam on Verizon to test the network, and it was. I am getting speeds that are double or better in weak areas with the 4S than the Droid. Reception is fantastic!

Wifi is definitely fast. I'm accustomed to Sprint's 3G Speed, which Gizmodo tested against Verizon and AT&T. While Sprint has the slowest of the three network speeds, we don't have HSPA+, so that's probably why. It doesn't matter to me because we have unlimited and they don't. 3G is plenty good for me.If you listen to metal, come and check out my tunes:

So I just took it outside my home earlier today for a test and I was surprised. It was MUCH quicker outside my home on 3G, I never did a SpeedTest but at home I'm getting .27 Mbps download and .02 upload which is SLOOOOOW. It's not a major problem I guess since I can always use Wi-Fi in my house but its just weird as my old Droid never had this problem........
Edit: Just ran on Wi-Fi...20.27 Download and 8.03 upload so its not the phone

Yeah my data speeds haven't been extremely faster, but they are relatively double of what I used to have with the iPhone 4. They're nowhere near the theoretical maximum, but at least I know the potential is there. Moreover, the reception has definitely been improved a great deal.
