    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

    Be careful with those extended batteries from China.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't understand what your battery has to do with getting speeds

    When I put the extended battery in my speeds greatly increase for some reason. No rhyme nor reason that I can think of but it does for some reason.
