If only it was that simple. Most of the time sprint data was completely unusable for me.\all the way around this is nothing to worry over. That's the whole point of unlimited data. Use it and don't worry about it.
I hear you. I am in the exact same boat. All the towers around the ones I routinely connect to have been upgraded, but I still sit at home and work on LTE that is slower than 3G! The tower at work has a ticket on it that's been open for months. It's in an industrial area and the backhaul is still waiting. The tower(s) at home, God only knows when they will get updated. And I can't stream music on the way to work because there is still one 3G only tower along my drive that stops my music cold whenever there's a handoff.If only it was that simple. Most of the time sprint data was completely unusable for me.
If i wanted to look up a website I had to wait a couple minutes for it to load...and If i wanted to watch a video I just gave up because it would get stuck at constant buffering.
Again I hear you. Try being stuck in an industrial area and nothing will load when you are trying to get directions. Your kids are in the back seat, you're late for an important appointment and your wife is demanding to know why, if you've looked up the directions BEFORE you left work, you aren't where you're supposed to be at that very moment!What's even more annoying is when you actually start losing money because your wireless provider's network sucks.
For example when you're in a store and you want to look up a coupon to save money but you can't because your internet is too slow.
Another scenario, you get a call to set up an important job interview, and your call drops. They call you back and your call drops again. This time, they don't call you back.
To the OP: make sure Sprint has good service in your area, or you are looking at your worst nightmare. Throttling should be the least of your concerns.
