    I got my iPhone 5 on sept 26. I ran several speed tests from the moment I got it and I never seem to be able to go over 7-8 Mbps dl and 7 upload. I was really looking forward to some double digits number but I guess that's not happening. Anyone else from Cleveland that can chime in? I'm really interested to see what numbers are other people getting..

    I live in Canton, Ohio and I was anticipating the same.

    I'm sure it will only get better in time..

    To be honest, my work and home get decent speeds, but about 15 min from our home it's pretty good.

    Sigh. Verizon is rocking everywhere else so it seems and I can't even get close to 10 Mbps dl... I hope it gets better, however I'm still burning through my data plan with or without double digits:) :/

    I'm around Canton, OH and when I was trying out a Galaxy Nexus a few months ago I hit 22 down and 15 up.

    My friend has a s3 on Verizon as well, he is getting 25 Mbps dl. So what's the deal here? We both have LTE phones on the same network(Verizon) and he is averaging triple my speeds. Really weird. I hate LTE mysteries

    Yup, but Cleveland LTE is nothing special so far. Samsungs on LTE score higher speeds, I just re confirmed that. I wish I knew why was that...
