    bluetooth is the slowest way to tether.. MUCH slower than wifi.

    that being said it shouldnt be lower than your upload.


    did you run the test multiple times?

    Yes, BT2 is. But 4.0 per spec shouldnt be. Also, its persistent, wifi tether iPhone goes to sleep.

    I should be able to pull 60% of the raw interface 25mbps bandwidth of Bluetooth 4.0, something like at least 15mbps and I'm nowhere close.

    Tried twice earlier from that location, shared best result

    Try resetting or restoring the iPhone. I use wifi tether constantly and it maintains the connection even with the iphone in sleep. Once its connected it should stay connected.
