I just got my new s3 last week after returning an iphone 5. I upgraded from an ancient google1.
I've read a LOT about what speeds to expect on an s3, even with tmobile's old network... most list around 12-15 for download speeds.
But I'm not getting anywhere close to the benchmarks I've read. here's my speedtest.net results.. all from the same location
Ping speeds: best - 115ms, MOST are about 1200, worst - 1705
upload: best - 1.65mbps, MOST are about 1.5, worst - .06
download: best - 6.51mbps, MOST between 2-5, worst - 1.59
I've experienced lags in sending emails and getting notifications, downloading apps, and opening websites like facebook. Ack.
I called tmobile who said they thot it was becuz they are rebuilding the towers in our area to upgrade NEXT year to LTE.
I'm wondering if I should switch providers and keep the phone? Or stick with tmobile and get a different s3.
Or is there something on the current phone I need to check first.
