My amount of data for this month has been exceeded and I know that for each revised iPhone there has been improvements as to what the iPhone is capable of delivering. I´ve been looking through a lot of pages on Internet and yet haven´t found the answer to this question.

Thanks for your replies all Apple friends

    I don't know where you are, so I will answer for both telekom technologies.

     

    All you have to do is look up the technologies behind the 3G logo, you have 3G, UTMS, HSDPA, HSPA+ and CDMA/EV-DO.

     

    CDMA is in the USA/Canada/Mexico/Asia. It maxes out at 3mpbs, average real-world speed is 1-1.5mbps.

     

    The fastest reported speed in Europe/USA for 3G is about 30-42 mbps. HSPA+ and LTE are supposed to break past 50mbps.

     

    The USA and Europe is on 3G/UTMS.

     

    I have seen 10mbps and 30mbps data rates here in Austria. But the catch is that you have to be right next to the tower for it to be that fast.

     

    Average data rate is 2-5mbps here in Europe.

     

    What is your carrier? What is your data limit? What do you use your phone for?

    My carrier is Telia in Sweden, but my subscription limits my speed to 4 Mbit/s though the area nearby allows around 10 Mbit/s. I don´t intend to pay more for a faster subscription, but the limit as what to iPhone 5 is capable of would be interesting.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Happy to help!

     

    4mbps is plenty for most anything a smartphone can do.

     

    Did you enjoy Eurovision?

    Sorry. I don´t have a TV :/

    The thing is that I use my iPhone 5 instead of other internet connections in my apartment so it´s supposed to serve both my MacBook Pro and my Mac Pro as well. The data limit each month is 1 GB.
