Hi - just got the AT&T iPad 3 today. Have had an iPad 2, iPad 1, iPhone 3g, iPhone 3gs and iPhone 4s. So, I am pretty familiar with what to expect in regard to connection speeds and performance. I do not have AT&T LTE in my area yet, and knew that going into this. I travel a lot, and expect it to be where I travel to. But, I have noticed that the number of AT&T bars is pretty consistently at 3 or even sometimes 2 on the iPad 3. On the iPad 2 it is almost always at 4 bars. On the iPhone 4 it is usually at 4 or 5. Has anyone else seen any changes in regard to signal strength? I will say that using the Speedtest.net app on both my iPhone 4s and iPad 3 both show fairly terrible ping rates and download speeds. I have used the AT&T 'Mark the Spot' app to send a report to AT&T. Maybe it is the influx of new iPads or who knows.
