    To those who went from the 4 to 4S on AT&T, compare the download speeds. Are you seeing any better download speeds with the new HSPA+ 14.4??

    I just got 5Mbps with three bars. I'm pretty happy. :)

    Yes, and that's no higher than the 4 can do :)

    Wow, I have AT&T and I have NEVER seen higher than 2.4Mps.

    Impressive number which is still lower than the 7.2 max the iphone 4 theoretically supports

    I am getting great numbers on my iP4 with IOS5 already.

    71ms/DL10.62/UL1.44

    Of course, I'm Still waiting on UPS for my 4S to arrive.

    Are you sure that's correct? iPhone 4 maxes out at a theoretical 7.2Mbps. 10.62Mbps download is impossible.

    When you make a reply, you can click "manage attachments" to upload a pic. This button is below the reply box.

    Regardless, it's an error because the iphone 4 isn't capable of anything over 7.2Mbps. It's not uncommon for speedtests to be incorrect under certain conditions.

    You positive you weren't connected to WIFI by chance?

    Yeah, definitely still good numbers. I get about 6.15Mbps down on my iPhone 4 in Toronto, so I'm hoping for an improvement on that.

    Here is my speed test in Dallas TX for the 4S


    I like the speed increase considering I was only getting around 1.5 - 2MB a sec on the iPhone 4. Not only that but youtube and other apps that lagged out run really smooth now. Cosmetically there isn't a difference in the phonse but power and speed wise makes the iPhone 4S a great pickup for me (plus needing the extra space very badly)

    I did a very informal side by side with my girlfriends iP4 early this evening.

    iP4S Speedtest was ~5 down and 1 up
    iP4 Speedtest was ~4.5 down and 1 up (I don't remember the exact numbers)

    Even though the downlink speeds were similar, full size webpages loaded quite a bit faster (5-10 seconds faster) on the 4S.

    How do you know your on hspa+ vs regular 3G because my understanding was AT&T never completed the rollout.

    I guess you really don't know but if you speed is higher or you check there coverage map. That is probably why att wants the 4g icon or at least the H+.

    So far it's the same. I could often get 5Mbps down on my 4, though. I'll be curious if I can get faster when I'm downtown.

    Did you have a 3G at one point? if so did you get those type of numbers with it? I have never seen these sort of speeds except wifi.

    Now that it's 6:30am and everybody else who might be using the network is asleep, I just got a download speed of 9.39 Mbps on my 4s :eek::eek:

    the HSPA+ 14.4 setup should allow for higher average speeds over the 4.
