Just hit 10mbps down for the first time! AT&T 4G HSPA+ is super fast in downtown Seattle. I use the Lynnwood, WA (20min north) server because it seems like I can pull faster speeds on that one. Idk how the server thing works, but I like it!

Honestly! What is up with this copying and pasting of posts from one forum to another?

You didn't even word it different.

It's under the user joeshmo2010 on macrumors, if anyone is curious.

And, that is not HSPA+. HSPA+ is 21Mbps. Though that is quite impressive for 3G.

It wouldn't mean that he has to get 21mbps. Does everyone get the Max speed on 3G? No

HSPA has a "max" download of 14.4Mbps, which is what was talked about in the keynote.

*sigh* even an average for that would be at least half. I get 5.4 mbps TOPS.

How do we find out if and when your area will get HSPA+?

WiFi speeds depend on more than just the fact that you are on WiFi, there are other factors:

-ISP (Ex. Comcast, Verizon, Optimum)
-Internet connectivity type (Ex.DSL, Cable)
-802.11 standard your router supports (a, b, g, n)
-Server you run the Speed Test App to
Etc...

I routinely get 17mbps to 19mbps at home but have seen WiFi speeds slower than 3G (as little as 1mbps) at certain hotels when I travel for work. WiFi does not equal high speed!

Well my speeds suck on wifi, I'm getting better with 3G. Right now I'm getting less than1.5 Mbps to just over 2.5 with my iPhone. My desktop that has a wired connection is getting over 20 and my laptop is getting over 10. All these are with the app speedtest.net but when I try different app to test the speed some say I am getting between 8-11.

I am very confused over the different apps different numbers. I have use speedtest.net for years so I kind of trust its numbers. So if it's numbers are correct why am I so slow?

Check what server you're partnering with, with the different device tests?

@Docd, of this is home wifi, you might want to check the router and see if there is a firmware update for it. That may help with speeds on your phone. I was having somewhat slow connections using speediest a one point. Applied a new firmware to the router and I pull from 15 - 19 Mbps on my phone now.

I did the firmware update like you suggested boy did it make a difference. I didn't think I was going to help cause is was 2 years old update I was wrong. Now I'm getting 15-20. Thanks for your help.
