Besides wifi, what would it take for Sprint's iPhone to be any faster?

    Can the sprint iPhone 4s be any faster?

    I heard Sprint is planning on beefing up their network sometime in mid-2012

    It has the EXACT same specifications as the 4s provided by ATT and Verizon. It's impossible to be any faster.

    not a phone question, a network question

    Sprint 3G is SLOW

    Yeah, I've been a Sprint user for many years and have expressed that on this forum many times, Sprint is and will continue to have 3G network issues for a long time.

    You wanted to save a few bucks... you get what you pay for.

    Ugh it's been very inconsistent for me. In one area it works just fine then I go somewhere else and the slowness drives me crazy. Was hoping to actually use my unlimited data and not have to hop on wifi spots. Oh well.

    On Speedtest I'm getting 100-150ms with around .8-.9mbps down and .8-.9 mbps up in Pittsburgh with Sprint.

    It's basically the same with Verizon. I have a Verizon iPhone 4 and you consistently get a Mps everywhere you go.

    I kept my Sprint account with my EVO just for this comparison reasons and with my 4S on AT&T I'm getting around 4.5-5mbps Down/1.5 Up. EVO on Sprint (3g network) barely 1mbps Down and .3mbps Up. It's night and day, but I think we should all have expected this difference. The Simply Everything Plan/Unlimited Data are nice options on Sprint, but I'm really glad I got the 4S on AT&T.
