Anybody with an iPhone 4 on the 3 network in the UK?

Could you please tell me what kind of data speeds are you getting?

Thanks.

I can confirm that on my iPhone 5 in getting crazy speeds with 3. I think iPhone 4 only supports HSPA, not DC-HSPA+...but in case it does...

Depends on where you are though. My iPhone 5 on 3 is getting a grand total of 0.63 down and about the same up. :(

Although the 3 network in Northern Ireland is abysmal.

I used to get about 3.5-4mb on my 4. Now have a 4S, and usually get around 6mb down/1.9mb up. This morning I'm getting 8.5mb down, 2.5up. Impressive.

I've also been getting awesome speeds with 3 on my iphone 5. It may not seem that impressive compared to LTE speeds but remember, these are 3G speeds:

The iPhone 4 isn't capable of DC-HSPA+ and so won't be able to get the speeds the iPhone 5 can get.

Yeah, a couple of guys in my office were pulling down 19.5 this morning. For 3G, that's mighty impressive.

Nothing, 3G in Milton Keynes is the worst out of everywhere I have visited. On orange, t-mobile and three I either get really slow speeds or more often I get nothing, despite having an awesome signal. It's quite well known that MK hates mobile signals and just never works.

Trust me they don't like cabled broadband ether. My connection at home hits around 0.70Mbps yep that decimal is not in the wrong place....

Sadly that is a good speed in comparison to others...some people have two lines just to have 1mb.

iPhone 5: I'm in Central London, near Piccadilly and I'm getting

Ping: 129ms
Down: 2.70Mbps
Up: 0.80Mbps

That's the best I've got since I bought my iPhone 5
