Indirectly they have. In the 4S keynote they had a few slides that showed the 4S' downlink speed to be 14.4Mbps. This is the slowest HSPA+ speed there is. There's also 14.0Mbps, this is not HSPA+.

Correct, Apple never technically listed it as HSPA+. They just said HSPA 14.4.

Fast indeed, though I got 18.07mbps down and 2.25mbs upload on T-Mobile. I was going to switch to EE but already seems pretty damn fast already

Time & time again, I have repeatedly emphasize that 3G/HSPA+ speeds are more than enough for daily usage on a mobile device, this thread further supports this claim.

Here's a post by forumer GoodBoy a while back.
Quote:
"Faster is always better" claim is only appropriate when talking about home internet lan configurations since people are doing a lot more and a much more heavy internet usage on personal computers than smartphones. 3G network is already enough for everything you can do on a smarptphone and 90% of data speed are internet browsing, appstore, and itunes. You really do not need 40mbits/s to browse internet or buy apps from appstore. The only huge deal about LTE is the hot spot possibility to provide fast internet on the go to your computer. And as you said speeds vary depending on locations. I've seen iPhone 5s LTE speedtest results even worse than some good iPhone 4S 3G like mine. Given that said, LTE is not that huge deal, it's not widespread yet, it's not really neccesary, thus it is not a dealbreaker like some of you guys making it. It's a nice feature, but it's not like you're gonna actually feel significant improvement on a daily basis of use. iPhone 4S was already blazingly fast not lagging at all regarding most common internet use on iPhone that are appstore, internet browsing and itunes.

As for HSPA+ 21.....I don't think AT&T specifies, but I believe in general when they upgrade a market, they are doing HSPA+ 21.....whereas I think T-Mobile is doing HSPA+ 42.

That's why I'm saying for those AT&T iPhone customers, the chip will now support the higher HSPA+ 21 speeds so even if you don't get LTE....you "may" still get faster 3G (or 4G) speeds.

T-Mobile does it in the US

I cant see my internet going any faster, pages load more or less instantly on 3G and I have no problem streaming video using my 36 conneciton. Maybe vodafone has some good networking, or maybe its just 4G is overrated? Who knows.
