OK. So this is very strange. With the stock battery in I am getting a from 8000- 11000 kbps down and 2000-4000 kbps up.
I purchased an extended battery (from China) and installed it. In the EXACT same place in my office with the new battery I am getting 15000-20000 kbps down and 8000-13000 kbps up.
Now I have retested both batteries and still get these results. Is this just absolutely strange? WTF
