    I'm in Hyde Park, Chicago, and just got the iPhone 4 today. Before, on the 3GS, top down/upload speeds were about 200/30 KB/s. Testing out the iPhone 4, even when I only had about 2-3 bars of 3G, I consistently got over 300 KB/s download and over 120 KB/s upload speeds.


    Great thing I'm grandfathered into the old "unlimited" data plan!

    Would be awesome if the iphone 3 microsim works in the iPad 3G.

    His speeds are in kiloBYTEs per second. Yours are in kiloBITs per second. Divide your speed by 8 to do an honest comparison.

    These speeds were also taken during a couple of storms rolling through the area tonight.

    Perhaps the new quad-band radios or whatever are the cause of the speed boosts?

    I am switching from an original 2g iphone to the iphone 4 (tomorrow, yay!)... so I'm pretty sure I'm going to be blown away by anything that is remotely faster than what I am getting now.
