    That's not even GPRS speeds. I had those same numbers, which is why I'm with Verizon now. I get about 25 up and down here in Jacksonville NC.

    That's what I thought too when I checked their coverage map. It said I had "best coverage". That was a lie. It's good in 1 or 2 areas that's about it.

    That's typical for LTE, but the 95% of users on Sprint who don't have LTE, they have worthless bricks on 3G.

    Sprint is alot cheaper than everyone else, and data isnt everything. Seriously, who can afford to pay $30/month for texting PLUS $50.00 for data? (PER LINE).

    EDIT: Most my essentials seem to run fine on the slower sprint 3G. Maps is really all I need when driving.
    For me, 5mbps would be more than plenty as I dont watch YouTube when away from home nor do I DL movies.

    I pay $50 per month for Unlimited talk, unlimited text and 10 gig of data shared by 6 phones ($50 per phone.) Seems like a good deal for me. I get 14 mbps on LTE and 5-6 on HSPA+. By the OP, he couldn't download 10 gig in a month if he had it on all month...

    SO thats less than 2GB per person per month? LTE will eat it up like candy if not careful. A couple of careless youtube videos in HD will get you in trouble. Sprint is unlimited, although it sucks. If one doesnt watch videos, what good is LTE really? I get about 1.2mbps at work and at home and thats just as fast as when i was on 25mbps. (Opening websites, checking email, using maps, ect.)

    As I said in another thread, most of the people on my plan just use email, facebook, etc. I use the most and I'm only at 700 meg 3 weeks in. I looked into a smaller plan, but because of how AT&T does the pricing, they are all the same price. Nice to know I have some overhead should I need to tether or want to Facetime on the road.
