    So, I've noticed that in the past few months (before AND after the iOS 6 update), the internet connection on my iPhone 4S has been horrifically slow. This is on both 3G AND Wi-Fi. My 3G has been incredibly slow lately, and my Wi-Fi (which runs at 45 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload on my Mac) comes in at about 0.5 Mbps download and 0.05 Mbps upload on my iPhone. It also gives me a lot of errors and failures to connect to servers (including the iTunes store sometimes). The tests that gave me those results (Mac vs. iPhone) were moments apart and to the same server, and this has been a continuous thing. I know it's not my router, because I have the same problem on my friends' Wi-Fi connections. I have already tried restoring my iPhone software (I did not restore from a backup, so all my old texts, apps, etc. are gone). Thanks so much for helping!

    At first you have an iPhone 4S, so you should be running 4G not 3G, as mine! Also you can reset it and see.

    4G only on AT&T

    I looked into that and it appears that the 4G symbol only appears on AT&T iPhones, and even those don't have true 4G connectivity. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Your wifi, check your router. It's not the phone.
    For the 3G, your signal might be weak, call your provider is the best you could do.

    I use Sprint, and Sprint iPhone 4Ss don't run 4G. I doubt that it's my router because this happens on my campus Wi-Fi network as well (my Mac runs fine on that), and on my friend's Wi-Fi (my Mac and his PC run well on that as well).
