    Where's my NYC :(

    That being said, this announcement comes right on the heels from the CEO Dan Hesse saying that the top 1% of data users are throttled on Sprint.

    If any GOOD news comes out of this, it's that they're also enhancing the existing 3G network at the same time, so hopefully data speed issues will increase between that AND the slowdown of the top 1%.

    That throttling news is comical to me, particularly after launching this ad campaign they recently embarked on. Don't regret leaving Sprint at all.

    I just heard that ad the other day.

    Just another bait and switch. These wireless companies are all freaking crooks, second only to the credit card companies.

    Go reread the details, the throttling is for excessive data roaming use, not regular use on the Sprint network.

    The throttling "news" was incorrect.

    Good to know. I don't roam much at all. ;)
