    The iPhone 5s supports more LTE bands in more places than last year's iPhone 5s, so while we're busy running it through our tests, we'd love to know what kind of results you're getting.

    1. Download the *free* SpeedTest.net app from the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/speedtest.net-mobile-speed/id300704847?mt=8)
    2. Make sure you're not on Wi-Fi but on LTE (or DC-HSPA or whatever is fastest in your area)
    3. Run your speed test
    4. Post a screenshot of your results here!

    Mine are looking pretty good. I can max out at ~60mbps, but with all the new LTE devices on the market ~30 is more common these days. I'm averaging between 30 and 35 right now (same as iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s, which makes sense since they're all on the same network in the same place.) (Sadly, they won't give me my own private tower, the nerve!)

    What results are you seeing and where?

    Sprint in Aurora, IL. May not be as fast as those on VZW And AT&T, but it's SO much better than the 3G I was dealing with on my 4S. iPhone 5s data speed tests: Post your results here!-imageuploadedbyimore-forums1379774365.375429.jpg

    I feel pretty stupid right now cause I can't figure out how to upload my screenshot via the mobile version of this website. I'm using iPhone 5S (Safari). As a work around, I also downloaded the iMore Forums app - but when I click around in the forums the app keeps crashing on me. So I can't get far enough in my clicks to see if I even have the ability to upload via the app. Not sure if it's an issue with the app? Or iOS 7 itself.

    So I'm forced to typing out my results! :-)

    Interesting - I tried to post this from my phone. I could select the picture by using the image selection tool, but then the entire comment would disappear. So now I'm posting from my Macbook. Anyway, this is indoors. Sprint LTE speeds here are way lower than the ATT speeds above, but still so much better than 3g.

    Verizon speeds are hardly better than yours on Sprint. 18-20-ish down, 1-2 up. Seriously slow on the upload. This is on my iP5. Download speeds have improved, but upload speeds on VZW around here SUCK. On wi-fi, more like 20 (down) 14 (up).

    Looks like the 5s may be more of a speed boost on ATT than on Verizon. Feeling good about my 5 looking at these!
