I am getting 8.29 down, 2.96 up... was wondering what you all are getting...
Pointless to try and compare 4G speeds. It depends on a few things:
a) which speed test app you use
b) which speed test server you are connected to
c) signal strength on your device
d) congestion on the tower you are connected to
Too many variables to make a comparison worthwhile, IMHO. I can test 6 times and have 6 totally different results. Some of the speed test servers won't even max out an LTE connection.
For example, I just tested with speedtest.net app connected to Washington, DC server hosted by speedtest.net
Got 9.6Mbps down/8Mbps up the first time (with 1 bar) - moved to the other side of my kitchen and got 14.5Mbps down and 9.5Mbps up just because it gained me another bar.

At home in my bedroom I would always consistently get at least 10mbps down and 10mbps up and I just tried six tests:
1. 5027kbps down 785kbps up
2. 4900kbps down 758kbps up
3. 7284kbps down 1649kbps up
4. 7114kbps down 1145kbps up
5. 2641kbps down 684kbps up
6. 5419kbps down 709kbps up
I hope to god this is some kind of fluke. And while we're at it I think my battery life took a hit today after the update but I hope I'm just imagining that I'm starting to think I may have made a mistake upgrading to 905.
5.10 mbps upload and 10.32 download. Significantly slower and with my normal provider and this is with speedtest.net. normally I'm 15-19 up and 7-12 down hmmmm what is going on?
