I get similar speeds on Verizon, but a ping that has dropped as low as 66ms (making the web feel snappier than it would otherwise).

I don't fare much better with AT&T. A little over 1 Mbps. It's a New York thing. We are too congested here.

The crush of all the new iPhones on the Sprint network. I really wonder if the network will be able to handle all the new iPhone customers.

All depends on location, I get between 2-4Mbps consistently...sometimes more. But a lot of that is living in DFW where AT&T wireless has a huge corporate operation and great cell tower coverage....

I must say though that despite the slow speed test speeds......my pages do load rather quickly and it's quite snappy. Definitely faster than my Evo

I'm pretty sure I save more than $5 a month. Especially getting 25% off my bill

Its overloaded from all the new iPhone 4Ses. Have some patience and wait a few days before you use 3G internet again. You can survive for a while on Wifi can't you?

Gizmodo, for what it's worth, said that in their testing the Sprint iPhone was the best. It really does all depend on location. And when a lot of these tests were done it was during peak hours. Now that its later I'm going to see what I get.

I'm getting as high as 5.84Mbps down, 1.19Mbps up, 125ms ping on AT&T. Love the HSPA+ upgrade so far. I get fine service in CT though... Never any dropped calls or anything. I know there are definitely areas of the country which don't have good AT&T service.

I don't think it's overloaded because I did multiple speed tests on 3g with my old EVO on Sprint *before* iPhone day and got around 40-60kbps on avg. So similar to the OPs post. I would peak at maybe 1+mbps during odd hours like 5am or so. Which is one of the reasons I jumped to AT&T (the main one being I wasn't up for renewal and my ETF was only $70 haha)

edit: Oh forgot to mention that I'm in LA...where all the towers are saturated as is

I think the networks are just congest from one million people receiving an iPhone on the same day... I was getting slower speeds on Sprint earlier but now i'm getting 1-2mbps down.

Your problem is that you're in New York. That is the way cell phones work.... even if the tower has bandwith, the more people there are with cell phones then the harder the phones and the towers have to work to maintain communication.

Its like being in a crowded room where everyone is talking. You might be able to listen to what your friend was saying if there wasn't so much extra noise for you to concentrate on ignoring.
