I upgraded my iPhone 4S to iOS 6 and all web pages I go to now download in a Blink-of-an-Eye!!!

Amazing speeds!!!

Anyone else with same results???


Speedtest.net Results (in San Diego, CA.):
AT&T:
iOS 5.x.x: down 2.0+/- Mb, up 364-768+/- Kb
iOS 6.0.0: down 8+ Mb, up 2.0+ Mb (in 1 place)
iOS 6.0.0: down 6+/- Mb, up 800+/- Kb (while driving)




FYI: I just got this iPhone 4S from a lost iPhone replacement by Asurion... It's 2 weeks old hardware.

I live in the SF Bay Area. Last time I checked, my 4G download speed was around 4 Mbps. I may have even gotten 6-8 Mbps down a few days ago. Unfortunately, the app crashed and I have been unable to produce the same speed.

I have a feeling that within a few months we'll be able to see 3G speeds grow.

I'm with AT&T, are you?

Still having some issues when going from WiFi to 4G

It seems sometimes I need to put iPhone on Airplane Mode for a second and turn back on for 4G speeds to be restored... Other times, I must do a full reboot!!!

AT&T lit up LTE for the launch and the LTE towers will do HSPA+ and everything lower on the same tower from what i understand.
