Lmao I don't understand how sprint survives as a company with these speeds. There's either too many college students or just a ton of cheap people. I say cheap and not broke because if you're broke you should not own a iPhone.

Unfortunately, where I am, coverage is pathetic. Those speeds are with an Airwave, which is supposed to increase coverage. (facepalm)

What's with all the whiny Sprint threads lately??? Seriously, they SUCK!!! That's why their prices are cheap.

I never understood why anyone would even consider them, coverage or not. When you have coverage the speeds suck and I've heard calls suck too.

Verizon and AT&T have the capacity to handle the iPhone, Sprint does not.

Cause of their "simply everything" plan. My parents have been with them for 15+ years. I keep telling them to go to Verizon -.-

We all know Sprint speeds suck, but here are mine. The fast cellular ones are when I was connected to the LTE network (rollout in progress).

I'm lucky I get one third that speed with Verizon LTE, even with 5 bars. Most times its only 10 to 15 Mbs DL speeds.

Yeah, but I feel sorry for you when you step outside an LTE area. I enjoy download speeds between 9-10 Mbps down on AT&T 3G.

Anything above 15 is just gravy on a phone.

I feel sorry for you being on ATT. I don't go outside the LTE. So far I've yet to be outside of Verizon's LTE service area.

Lol you got that right. 20-70mbps down in LTE Area, right back down to 1-2 on 3G.

In most areas with Verizon LTE, you will be lucky to see 20 Mbs DL speeds.

Right now, Softbank's huge investment is what's keeping them afloat. Between the failed Nextel merger and their flip-flopping on 4G technology (WiMax vs LTE), it's a miracle they've survived this long. But Softbank wants a toehold on the US market, and Sprint was an easy target.

I was a customer for 8 years, and dumped them when they merged with Nextel. I knew that was a bad deal from the get-go.

My home broadband (Wired) connection sits around 0.5mb so I am used to those types of speeds

Though 3G is naturally a lot faster hehe.
