    Has anyone installed the carrier hack that allows your LTE speeds to increase. I'm with Rogers and would like to try it out.

    US carriers.....

    I'm still a little hesitant to install such things. I haven't looked into them much, though, but my initial concerns would be with the removal of the mods and if they would have any sort of impact on battery life.

    I am intrigued, but can't see putting my precious JB at risk. Honestly, I rarely use 3G anyhow, and for me, the carrier hack reportedly only effects Sprint 3G data speeds....

    I think battery impact would be negligible.
    Is the device working harder running an extra line of code? Would running freely with unfettered data restrictions cause the iPhone to work harder?

    I am running the hack. My speeds seem to be improved. Was running at about 14 up and 3 down previously.

    I might have to give this a shot. I'm running Bell Mobility myself, and this was also something I was quite curious about since I heard about the hack, but without it I still get higher speeds than what you show in your screenshot.
