Does the new iPhone 5 support a faster HSPA+ through AT&T or ust the same speeds as the 4s?
see my other thread re this, somewhat related, i am confused as well
Can you provide a link.
it supports 21mbps and 41mbps dc-hdspa
Yes, it supports faster HSPA+. I don't know what AT&T's limit is, though. T-Mobile advertises that it's HSPA+ is faster than AT&T's.
Its the thread starting w "confused" everyone said the 4S had hspa+ but that doesnt seem to be the case. Altho i am faaaar from an expert on this. Only going by the 4S keynote and this keynote
It supports up to 42mbps HSPA+. AT&T maxes out at 21 but T-Mobile uses HSPA 42 on its network.
4S only supported HSPA+ 14.4 so yes the 5 should be faster on HSPA+ than the 4S.
Well, this is exciting seeing there is not LTE in my area yet! Thanks!
Honestly my AT&T iPhone 4S holds well against VZW LTE devices in my area.
Ok so a you tube video loads a second or two faster, not significant.
I compared load speeds on my AT&T 4S to VZW LTE with NY Times full desk top site. VZW LTE loaded about 1-2 seconds faster, to me not significant.
It's not like 'holy crap VZW LTE blows away my AT&T iPhone 4S'.
I demoed a phone at Best Buy, a Verizon LTE phone and the web pages just exploded/appeared on the screen every time I clicked a link. They really did not load, they just appeared. it was that fast.
That is the only experience I have had with LTE so I was very impressed.
