    I just upgraded from a Lumia 521 to a Lumia 1320. Couldn't afford the 1520. Anyway the 521 was getting 5.** mbps on my wifi. The 1320 is getting 21.** to 22.** mbps on it. I'm getting bwtter upload sppeds with the 1320 than the 521 got on download speeds. Uploads with the 1320 are 5.7* mbps.Definitely happy with the upgrade. You're in Canada, too. I'm paying AT&T for a 45 mbps. connection. My desktop pc is getting 50.7* mbps. according to speedtest.net. Desktop pc is wired to my router, everything else is using wifi.

    crazy thing is, the speed I'm getting above is with cellular and not router! (wifi) which is faster than my ultra high speed at home which is only 60MB/S that I'm paying big bucks for! LOL

    how is this speed possible? today I did a test again on the cellular bandwidth and got these speeds... is it possible the app is faulty? I have gotten lower speeds when indoors or bad area's but I can't believe my speeds i'm getting with the L1520... just blows my mind!

    It's in the top end of the 4G specs, but sure, not impossible. You can go even higher if you have perfect reception (limit is 150mbit on the Snapdragon 800).

    Most providers globally in places where 4G has developed a little have chosen to unlock the speeds completely, because it turns out for them that when a transaction on the network (loading a website) is done at a higher speed/faster, that it puts less strain on a network than multiple connections at once loading a page slower (the sooner someone's done with their business on the network, the better apparently). The amount of connections is more of a stress on the network than the speed at which they go, basically. The bottleneck is in the cell towers currently, that's where it comes from.

    So ehm, this is quite normal. The 1520 gets up to about 100mbit in most cases. The snapdragon 400 devices can do 45-60mbit. Theoretically higher, but the chip isn't fast enough for it.

    Funny note is that the Lumia 820/920/925/1020, with the Snapdragon S4 Plus can attain the exact same speeds as the Lumia 830/735. The CPU is relatively comparable and so is the networking part of the SoC.

    Better cancel your home internet and get yourself an LTE hotspot! :)

    It is just as dysje explained, the moment you enter a high traffic (cellular) your speeds may decrease. My 4g speeds on Three are not to far off what I get on H+ whereas on O2 I would get roughly 15 to 40 depending on the area. However since I have unlimited data and saving money (132 per annum), I'm not too fussed :p.

    But by canceling your internet provider and maybe adding to your data pool, it would make more sense (depending on what you pay)

    Actually... the downside of it all is that the connection is less stable and fluctuates in terms of pingtimes/delays a LOT. That means that for online gaming your lag will be annoying and very unreliable to say the least and for downloading larger files, the overall, average speed may not be as impressive anymore.
