Reception improvement with ICS
I've noticed that both the 3G and 4G receptions have improved. I now get full 4G bars in locations that were weaker before, and a bar or two more for 3G. Yet speeds haven't increased and are basically the same as before according to speed tests I've done.

I've definitely noticed reception improvement. Not only that, the indicator in the status bar is now honest about when you're connected via 1x instead of 3G/EvDO.
I haven't noticed a data slowdown like one or two people have mentioned in other threads. I assume that they were syncing a bunch of data after their upgrade had finished (movies, books, apps, etc.).

Re: Reception improvement with ICS
Before update (stats from last May)
at work 4G - 3,435kbps down......924kbps up
at work 3G - 373kbps down.......581kbps up
After update at work:
4G - 3,040kbps down....1,370kbps up
3G - 470kbps down....310kbps up
Reception seems better. I typically drop call at same spot everyday driving back home from work. Yesterday, it didn't drop.
