    [Edit]: Thanks to the anandtech iPhone 5 review, 150 is the max. Will get this deleted.

    Hoping someone else with a Time Capsule (or really with any other router) can verify this.

    Restored Time Capsule to default, then ran through default setup (creates both a 5.0 GHz and 2.4 GHz network and devices automatically connect to the fastest network).

    • My rMBP connects (and stays at) 450 Mbps on the 5.0 GHz band
    • With LTE off, my iPhone 5 connects at 150 Mbps on the 5.0 GHz band
    • With LTE on, the phone connects at 54-72 Mbps on the 5.0 GHz band

    Question 1:
    Is that the max the iPhone 5 supports? 150 Mbps?

    Question 2:
    Can anyone else verify their iPhone 5 Transmit Speeds with both LTE on and off?

    Wow, 450 Mbps, that's crazy. Even your "slow" 50 Mbps is fast as hell.

    I just did 2 speedtests back to back, one with LTE enabled, one not, almost identical. But "only" 33-34 Mbps. :) (my plan is 30 I think)

    Of course it goes without saying 50-150 Mbps on a phone is truly so fast that its really just for fun at that point. :)

    MOD NOTE: Since there is an actual answer in this thread, I think closing the thread and marking it resolved is preferable over a delete. If you really want it deleted, report this post.
