    ATT S8 here, also in CA. I'm only seeing 3 ish mbs download speeds on 4G LTE. I didn't even realize my speeds we're slow until I read this thread. How the heck are you guys getting the same speeds on LTE as I get on WiFi!? that's crazy.

    Kalvin Kerns,

    I know right? Well, at least good to know another fellow Cali is seeing the same speeds as me? It got down as low as 4.29 download and 2.64 upload. I just got a Ping that was 104 seconds...average is around 27-30, and lowest 16 highest 77.
    My home Wifi bumped it up to 85.93 download and 12.52 upload with 16s Ping. Still not close to some of these guys' LTE speeds though! But I'm sure my home internet isn't the fastest anyway...
    Wondering if this is a California issue?
    I'll try testing outside when I'm not at home to see if it changes.

    This was taken today around noon at the gym, a city over from my home.
    Uggggh...maybe this is Sprint itself?

    I WISH I was going getting those speeds on 4G LTE. Very nice.

    Do you have anything to compared to? Another AT&T phone in the same spot? If not I'd just say the network isn't that great there.

    Well I got this same speed in two towns 30 miles apart so I dunno.

    Interesting. I get pretty good speeds on Verizon. Pretty much on point with other phones when in the same location.

    So, this MAY not be SPRINT thing...
    I got this at the local Mall over in another city away from home base

    I gotta say after seeing all these crazy speeds I was filled with joy seeing this number, albeit it wasn't a foot away from the true capability of the S8+. I think it's a California thing...at least, Bay Area thing.

    Testing inside a house is not ideal. You need to be in the open. My speeds seem fine for my LTE. AT&T Unlimited Plus here.

    The WiFi speeds own the iPhone 7 Plus too. I only was able to get around 100mbps on my iPhone lol.

    They should function the same. Below is a test from my iPad Air 2 and my S8+.

    iPad Air might use a different wireless chip than iPhone 7.

    I can test with the girlfriend's iPhone 7 Plus soon when she gets home to see if it is different. I'll post back.

    So... I dunno if it's CA in general then or ATT maybe. I dunno but I can't get more than 3mbs on LTE no matter where I'm at. The speeds you all are getting are absolutely insane. Blows away my 100mb WiFi even.

    Since Verizon has been offering unlimited data their LTE speeds have been in the toilet.

    My area is still pretty solid. Most places 30 Mbps on LTE. Others upwards of 80.

    Still hard to imagine some of these LTE speed at over 100MBS and some of your home WIFE over few hundred!

    You know, I wonder if all those super fast guys are getting to take advantage of the new Gigabit LTE and perhaps our area (CA ATT) just doesn't have that set up yet?

    Some carriers just have it setup that way in their area. If you get 30 or more that's plenty for what you'd do on a phone. Less can still work.

    Just remember some of those above this post are wifi tests.

    I understand, but when I see you guys posting speeds on average over 30mbs and I average 3... Well I see a problem.

    Ah yeah true. 3 isn't very favorable.
