    Seams like my iPhone 4 is faster than my dad's iPhone 4S. Very surprising.

    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.
    I watched this video and felt that it was not a fair test. From the picture that I saw AT&T clearly didn't have very good coverage in that area. As far as I know AT&T is the only one of the 3 networks with the iPhone 4S that can take advantage of HSPA+ speeds.

    On At&t

    3G is getting 5.99 Download and 1.43 upload mbps
    This is about what I get consistently on mine. On a side note, I heard a rumor that AT&T is working with Apple on a carrier update which will have a symbol that shows when you are in an area that has HSPA+ coverage as seen on many of AT&T's 4G Android devices. I sure hope this rumor is true.

    yeah they are.. Problem is Apple might not do it since its not really true 4g.. If anything they just do like Android does, and make it be an H instead.

    Holy crap! 4S on AT&T:

    Ping: 322ms
    Download: 3.52 Mbps
    Upload: 1.08 Mbps

    Now, this is in a tiny farming town with a population of 3000 (Sunderland MA). We are right next to a town (Amherst MA) with 30,000 and the flagship campus of the University of Massachusetts with 20,000 students, but still. With my old 3GS I was getting .75-1.25Mbps down and around .25 up, and my brother's 4 didn't get much better than that, so this is a three- or four-fold speed increase! Holy crap. I can't wait to see how it does in Amherst, where I was getting 4 Mbps down before.

    I understand what the Iphone 4S is capable of and I'm a little jealous of some of you guys numbers. What I'm not happy about is Iphone 4 speeds and Iphone4S speeds in my area are not much different. My last Iphone4S speed using speedtest was 3.49 Mbps

    Here is a link to a browser based Speed test you guys can do with averages and what type of iphone

    Atlanta (just inside the perimeter at my precinct office which is shielded and yields about 2 bars AT BEST, even on this 4S):

    DL - 3.75Mbps
    UL - 1.24Mbps

    ...not too shabby. My old iPhone 4 wasn't able to do that consistently. I'll check my in town numbers later, they are usually pretty significantly higher.

    4S on AT&T 3G

    I tested again at outside of my apartment. Location is Millenium Park Chicago, IL.

    The best result I have is.....

    5.72mbps download
    0.81mbps upload
    77ms ping

    When I asked At&t, the agent told me that new tower next to my building is going to
    operate next month. I hope I get this much of speed from my apartment.

    On AT&T in the Washington, DC area, I'm getting around 2.5 to 3.5 download, but only around 1 up. I did a comparison between my husband's 4 and my 4S at the same location and time and the 4S was getting speeds 1.5 to 2 times better than the 4.

    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 i've been complaining about for months. i also live in ny
