    Just got my 7 Plus Jet Black. So happy about the color and size (upgrading from a 6).

    Tested the connection with Netflix/Fast, and got a whopping 160mbps :O and not even full signal.

    Really love the inclusion of LTE Advanced!

    Poop me, that's ridiculously, insanely quick. The Wi-Fi card in my 5S doesn't even support speeds that fast.

    Technology is increasing so quickly.

    ..and that's about half as fast as the full capability of LTE Advanced (300Mbs). This has actually been around for a while elsewhere and the newest band is twice as fast utilizing a 4x4 MIMO architecture (LTE-A is 2x2). T-Mobile just rolled it out, although only a couple phones can take advantage of it with the proper radio. The new iPhones cannot.

    There are oceans of bandwidth out there right now. It's unbelievable the speed of communications networks these days. Even with the 4x4, why in the world do I need 400Mbs to my phone? Although it's great for hotspotting, that's for sure.

    You should use Ookla Speedtest's app. It actually shows your upload speed and ping.

    AT&T's cell service here in the exurbs of LA is so bad I doubt it'll make a difference for me, unfortunately.

    Now you can go though your 10 GB data plan in less than 9 minutes.

    iPhone 7 is the only iPhone with LTE Advanced 3xCA. And then of course your carrier needs to support it.

    Not true. The iPhone 7 is the first iPhone to support 3xCA. The 6S is the first iPhone to support LTE Advanced.
