Not just you in Calgary but everywhere else, also here in Newmarket I have had problems in Toronto. Using the speedtest app, it won't even get by the ping test with 3 bars

Well for once Canada is united with a common enemy.

My wife runs on telus and it's faster. But I get better reception in rural areas.
I hope they get things running normal again.

My old walkie talkies never had speed problems.

Slow like molasses. Wish there was some way to confirm it's the network, not my hardware.

you mean besides another way instead of other people complaining their network is slow as well, from different areas of the country?

Call me a geek, but I like to know these things with a degree of empirical certainty. Been having a couple issues that make me wonder if it's the phone so I'd like to know if I decide to take it back to an Apple store.

It seems OK to me in Ottawa.
Get the "Speed test" app and check the speed.

Wireless networks tend to be slow in the dense urban cores and quicker in the suburbs. I'm on the train going 90km/h and it feels way faster (just tested 1.6Mbps) than when I was stationary downtown (slow, just slow).

Whoops I had my Bittorrent Client on at the time, 2.4Mbps.
