    Hey everybody, I just wanted to know why is the download rate from apps from the AppStore so slow? Everytime I download an app it takes at least 5 minutes and sometimes even more to download fully.

    And if you have cable or DSL, and how far away you are from the node. There are tons of things that can make your internet connection slow.

    Ok, I'll try ur recommendations. I'm not using Wi-Fi though...i'm using the connection on my new Verizon iphone 4. Idk if that has anything to do with it.

    Those speeds are about right for Verizon's network in my area.

    On AT&T, I just got

    Ping: 151ms

    Download: 4.2Mbps

    Upload: 1.28Mbps


    Depending on your location, Verizon usually runs around .5-1.5 Mbps. It can get as high as 3, but I've never seen it

    Sounds like you're OK. Maybe try late at night when there's less network congestion.
    Verizon has the slowest data speeds of any US carrier (not knocking them, just letting you know)

    My way of looking at it...


    AT&T - Fast but choppy/in & out

    Verizon - Slow and Steady

    Personally I use AT&T and am happy with my speeds
