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:
- Download the free SpeedTest.net app from the App Store
- Make sure you're not on Wi-Fi but on LTE (or DC-HSPA+ or whatever is fastest in your area)
- Run your speed test
- 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!!
