Hi Everyone!!! I purchased a brand new SGS2 i9100 about a week ago and have been having slow download speeds since then! I also have an iphone and have been comparing the speeds by switching my sim card between phones. The average speeds for data in my area with my cellphone provider (Movistar) are 1100kbps Down and 400kbps Up

The iphone always gets 400kbps-1200kbps Down and 200kbps-500kbps Up

The SGS2 always gets 30kbps-120kbps Down and 200kbps-500kbps Up

This issue has been bugging me ever since I bought the phone. I have tested the speed like every 4 hours since I got the phone and 0 improvements.


Here is what I have tried so far:

* Factory Data Reset (No difference in speed)
* Sim card from different provider (No difference in speed)
* Updated to latest firmware available in my country (2.3.4 gingerbread) (No difference in speed)
* Checked the APNs and they were all set to the correct values (No difference in speed)

Here is my phone info:

Samsung Galaxy S2 GT-I9100 (internationally unlocked version)
Running on android 2.3.4 GINGERBREAD.UHKI2
Baseband Version: I9100UHKI1
Kernel Version: 2.6.35.7-I9100UHKI2-CL553601 se.infra@SEI-07 #2
This phone has never been rooted

Cellphone provider and apn:
Movistar de Venezuela
APN Name: movistar INTERNET
APN: internet.movistar.ve


At this point I am pretty desperate. I think this might have to do with some speed restriction the phone or something like that. Please help guys!!!
