But in your situation, have you tried different browsers? How's your girlfriend's web browsing experience on the iPhone 6 compared to you using the galaxy? I highly recommend UC browser HD (not the original) even when I get crappy speeds (which is all the time at home) when I use that browser it truly feels fast!

Ubuntu, ah. Man, I haven't used Ubuntu since like 2009. How is it now?

Yeah, I've tried different browsers, ROMs, etc. Loading pages isn't too slow for me, but it's mostly just any kind of apps. It's just T-Mobile to be honest. Speeds with AT&T are so much better. But I guess you get what you pay for. It's not horribly slow, but compared to AT&T, it's eh. Keep in mind I've had T-Mobile for over 5 years, had AT&T for a brief 4 months, so meh.
