With the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus now supporting extra LTE frequencies such as Band 7 (2600MHz), some of you have already shared some insane download speeds with us. Earlier today, PC Mag confirmed in their tests Rogers and Bell have some of the fastest LTE networks nationwide.
Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models support 16 bands (overall 20 total LTE bands are supported with various models worldwide) as listed below for Canadian and American users:
Compared to the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, this year we see the addition of LTE bands 7, 18, 20, 25, 26, 28 and 29 (A1549, A1522 models) thanks to the Qualcomm MDM9625M LTE modem, which now brings download speeds up to 150Mbps.
Like we did with the iPhone 5, now is the time to share your iPhone 6 LTE speedtests from Rogers, Telus and Bell with your fellow mobile enthusiasts. Here’s how to share your results:
1. Download Speedtest.net in the App Store
2. Share your results in the following format so it’s easy to read:
- Location: (i.e. Victoria)
- Network: (i.e. Telus)
- Download: (i.e. 22.59Mbps)
- Upload: (i.e. 6.54Mpbs)
Which network will take the crown for the fastest LTE network in Canada? Let’s find out ourselves! Feel free to share your screenshots in the comments as well. Of course, as more iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users jump onto LTE networks (think of former iPhone 4/4S users), in particular Band 7 (2600MHz), expect speeds to drop.
