iPhone 4 international speed tests

iPhone 4 international Speed Test

You know the drill -- iPhone 4 just went on sale in 17 additional countries so hit up your favorite speed test (I used the speedtest.net app) and let us know how the new HSUPA (high speed upload) radio is treating you.

(And if you're in the US and have just gotten yours fixed, let us know how that's working as well).

I'm averaging between 2.5 - 3.5 Mbps down and 1.5 Mbps up in Port Orchard, WA (across the Puget Sound from Seattle). They finally fixed the AT&T upload issue in my area.

dgamer1 says:

3551 download and 1658 upload in Phoenix, AZ.
I was getting about 90 upload a few days ago so I am assuming that the carrier fixed the issue with Phoenix.

largenj says:

Full 3G serivce here in Fort Worth, TX and averaging 1.45Mbps DL and 1.1Mbps UL...Kinda slow if you ask me but not that bad.

Fantom says:

I know this is about international speeds, but come on AT&T. .34 Mbps down and .73 Mbps up. Absolutely ridiculous. And this is outside with 5 bars of 3G!!!!

Fantom says:

My Down has been cut by a third (what's up with that?), but my UP has gone from 100 to 900(average of 4).
South of Detroit. Canada is 1.83 miles away from my desk, so almost an international reading.

International networks definitely trumping AT&T BIG TIME!! :-/

MojoVersion8 says:

going from iPhone 3G to iPhone 4 on Optus I not only got much higher upload but also much higher download, from about 2Mbps to 4Mbps (down) which it might have to do with the new band, unfortunately don't have the upload stats with me atm and I can't get 3G in my house

Tony says:

I live in Memphis also and at first I was going to say there must be something seriously wrong with your reading because I have consistenly gotten 2.2-2.6 Mbps down since I've had my iPhone 4, sometimes even crossing the 3 Mbps mark, but it seems tonight for some reason I can't get much over 1.4 Mbps. Upload is almost always 1.21 Mbps upload for me.
Agreed, it is 5 bar connection here

Fraydog says:

I now it's not international but AT&T just activated 3G in Carbondale and Marion, IL, and I am, on average, getting 3Mbps down and 2Mbps up.

jjb70 says:

Well I'm glad I read this post. I'm on my second iPhone 4. Down is always around 500, up is always around 1500-1800. Michigan. Funny thing is, if you reset your network settings, the speeds will flip flop for a short period and then return to low down, high up. After reset, I get around 3M down and 1500 up. Lasts for about a half hour. Could an update fix?

Dave says:

Rogers Network 6305down/3614up

Hedley Lamarr says:

central London, Vodafone: 6.2mbps down, 2.95mpbs up.
Average is about 5.5 down, 2.9 down.
Now if only the battery would last more than a day, it seems there's some sort of Exchange related bug in iOS4.01 that causes the battery to die very quickly

sumsangtrade says:
