    Mine has been doing the same thing for a while now. It'll show full reception after a restart and then quickly goes to one. My speeds aren't compromised, so I think it's just a visual error.

    Have you tried to upgrade your router firmware or even better get a brand new router ? This might be a router issue as well

    Yeah. I'm not having any issue with speed and I'm not having the issue with any other devices. It's just the iPhone 5 showing the one bar. I've concluded it just has to be a software issue since performance isn't being affected. Seeing someone else say the same thing made me wonder. I've just gotten used to the one bar. It's been that way since I got the 5.

    How sure are you that your speed is not being compromised ? Maybe it is. Its hard to believe that only one bar offers the same speed as full 3 bars which i have now

    Yeah, I'm sure. I get between 6 and 7 Mbps on all my devices and the iPhone is no exception. Slow DSL, I know. I'm curious if anyone else is having the same experience and getting normal speeds?

    Yeah. I would love cable, but DSL is all I get where I live. I get awesome 4G speeds. 30-40 Mbps on LTE.

    Are you saying that 4g is faster than cable ? 😮😳

    It all depends on where you are. I get 15-20 some places and 30-40 some places on 4G. Here's a shot I took a few days ago on 4G.

    Be careful when referencing "4G" speeds...the speeds that are being discussed here are LTE speeds, not simply 4G.

    4G and LTE are supposed to be the same thing. The only problem is AT&T's bastardization of the term. 4G was ruined when AT&T decided to call their 3G network 4G. HSPA+ is 3G!

    Actually Tmobile did it first, AT&T didn't want their HSPA+ network to be viewed as one less "G" than the competition.

    True. But no one noticed till AT&T did it. I don't see why we can't sort it out and standardize it. I know that regulatory groups are working on it, but this can't come soon enough.

    There are standards. T-Mob & AT&T ignored the standards, and let their marketing people run the show.

    I'm headed to court to file the suit. I also made an appointment to see a therapist. I keep having this nightmare that these threads keep coming without an end in sight.
