    So I placed my old iPhone 4 beside the new iPhone 4S and ran Speed Test on both simultaneously. Guess what, iPhone 4 bit the crap out of 4S and not by a small margin: ~5 Mbps vs. ~2 Mbps respectively. That was just one time, all the other times are constantly ~2 Mbps (iPhone 4) vs. ~1 Mbps (iPhone 4S). I wouldn't mind if it were the other way round.

    Please, post the following:
    - iPhone model
    - carrier
    - location

    Here's my latest:

    - iPhone 4S
    - AT&T
    - NYC

    New York/New Jersey area seems to be going back and forth with their 3G speeds. One minute I'll get 5-6 d/l and close to 2 upload, then 5 mins later I'll get what you posted.

    My guess is New York is getting hammered with all the new 4S phones. So hopefully a couple weeks it'll be back to normal.

    iPhone 4S Verizon (4 tests, 2 locations, averaged)

    179 ms ping
    1.48 Mbps down
    0.68 MBps up

    NOTE: Speedtests vary a lot between runs, I would recommend at least 3 tests and possibly in multiple locations. 1 test isn't very accurate.

    You don't get "4G" speed on Verizon, CDMA does not support it. Technically AT&T isn't even a "4G" network (that would be like LTE), but it's just a marketing term nowadays and the carriers have ruined any meaning it had. But bottom line is you will not, under even the best of circumstances, get anything close to what you might think of as "4G speeds" on a CDMA Verizon phone. That said, I haven't found it to be terribly slow, web surfing seems snappy enough (the A5 helps here so you don't wait for rendering). Another thing to remember is this is a launch weekend and the networks are getting slammed right now with people playing with and testing their phones. It'll probably be more accurate in a week or so as that settles down.

    Here are my results on my Sprint iPhone 4S and my AT&T iPhone 4. These were done in west Michigan near Grand Rapids. I am leaning towards returning the 4S and sticking with my 4 on AT&T. These speeds are worthless!

    Getting about 1.5mbps down or less on 3G in my area. I have pretty bad coverage at my house so this probably isn't a very good representation. My Wi-fi speeds are only about half what I get on my Mac at 25mbps average(connection is 50mbps).

    I took this reading a few hours ago, using 3G as the results show. I'm currently on wifi which is what you see in the screenshot.
