How fast is your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c? Show us your data speed results!

How fast is your iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c data? Show us your speed test results!

The iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c support the more LTE bands in more places than ever before. And if you're living in an area without LTE, they also support DC-HSPA+, HSPA+, and EVDO Rev A. That's a lot of alphabet soup acronyms that, if shaken out, spell FAST. But how fast is the new fast? What kind of speeds are we getting from our brand new iPhones? We're running our usual tests now, but we'd love to see what you're getting in your area. So here's what to do:

  1. Download the free app from the App Store
  2. Make sure you're not on Wi-Fi but on LTE (or DC-HSPA+ or whatever is fastest in your area)
  3. Run your speed test
  4. Upload a screenshot of your results to our: iPhone 5s speed test thread or iPhone 5c speed test thread, and make sure to note carrier and location!

It helps us get a far wider - and frankly, smarter - ranger of results, and helps more people know what kind of results they can expect in their area. So thanks, and test away!!

I'm from Tulsa area and I'm on the Bixby server too! Unfortunately, I only get around 26 down

KCMike says:

These speeds blow me away. Meanwhile, I have a garbage DSL connection at my house (upload @ 750Kbps). These ISP's need to get their butts in gear to keep up.

San Jose, CA - speeds vary wildly for me. After about 15 tests on T-Mobile LTE, my results range from 7 down/2 up to 25 down/10 up.

My iphone 5 is faster than my brothers new iphone 5S
We also tested it against his girlfriends iphone 5S and it's also faster, all 3 phones are on tmobile lte network and all have tmobile 15.1 carrier update
Only thing different is mine is factory unlocked.
With iOS 7 on my iphone 5 and iOS 7.0.1 on the iPhone 5S
Also I'm getting 10 times better battery life now with iOS 7, glad I didn't update

5.62 down and 1.71 up this morning on Verizon LTE in Broomfield, CO. This sounds slow compared to others, but is my first experience with LTE.

rysmithaz says:

39 down with 10 up in Mesa, AZ. Average for AT&T in the area. The 5s does seem a little more consistent with the faster speeds though.

TheTurch says:

Verizon Wi-Fi: 11.97 down /4.15 up
AT&T LTE: 24.70 down/4.44 up

Darn, all those speed... My connection at home is not even at a constant 1mbps.

M4c0770 says:

Avg. of 18/12 on 5s 7.0.1 but jumping from 3/1 same signal but on iphone 4 with only 3G network radios and on ios 6.x seems a lot for me now.
