    I noticed my speeds slowing down a bit, I used to get about 6 down and 1 up, now I'm getting 3 down and about 7500kb up so almost half. I had not done a factory reset as of yet, but I am tempted too.

    I went waaaay down. From 8-13mb down to 700k-3mb. This sucks big time, especially with wifi that keeps dropping off since the update. I can't keep a wifi connection for more than 30 min and it won't reconnect by itself unless I turn it off then back on real quick.

    I was playing with the SIII and EVO LTE today at work since San Antonio now has LTE and my SII had better speedtest than the EVO LTE. I pulled 11.8 mb down on the SII and the EVO ran 6.5. Now the SIII ran 31 mb down and 24 mb up.

    I will take 11 mb down anyday from a wimax device.

    I line in NYC and since the update my sg2 will not connect to wifi and is not getting 4g. When I turn on 4g it lights up as if to work for a couple of seconds and the a X appears under the 4g. Right now I cannot connect to the Internet and if I do it takes forever. Sprint should have held out on this update, they waited this long! This sucks!!!!!!!

    4g Wi Max speeds are the same for me in Slc, UT. I got 11.3Mbps down today.
    However the 4G will occasionally stop downloading, doesn't say sleeping, just no data transfer. and all i can do to get it working again is toggle 4g off and back on.

    I thought I was the only one whose wifi would disconnect after some time passes when the phone is idle. Never did it with gingerbread. Very upset with the bugginess of this rollout!

    Can't get wifi direct to work either so now I can't share files with my wife's phone.
