    Just ran a speed test with the new iPhone 7 Plus on Verizon's network. Almost 150Mbps down. Only got about 60Mbps on my 6S Plus. [​IMG]

    Good to see. I don't think the 6s or prior supported CA. Theoretically, you will be able to download up to 300mb now.

    The phone can basically access x LTE frequencies at once and aggregate them into one data connection.

    This was the reason I really wanted a verizon phone but I ended up with the T-mobile, hopefully the T-mobile connection speeds are good too. Anybody received one yet?

    I'd like to share my blazing AT&T speed test on my 6S (and this is the Unthrottled speed). Anything I'm doing wrong other than being AT&T customer?

    You might try to manually pick another server to test against.

    until everyone has a phone that can access all those bands thereby clogging them up with activity. then what will that performance be?

    Verizon has a vast network that can handle a huge number of subscribers today and decades to come.

    Before you assume... well you know what they say...

    I think the 6s supported 2xCA, so only 2 LTE bands and the 7 supports 3xCA.

    Out in suburbs NW of Boston on T-mo I'm getting 68 down and 25 up. Not as stellar as the OP but downloads and browsing and all the rest are plenty fast.

    Very nice! I've seen speeds pretty close to that on my T-Mobile 6 Plus (130 / 35), but only late at night in the city
