That may be but only " if " you can get connected on the 3g network.
They are know to have terrible coverage.
In this area tmo has the same problem.
In rural America Verizon wins but you have to PAY for it.
What have they been using to test? They must be on some serious crack or something to say that sprint is faster than T-mobile, there is no way that EvDO Rev.A can outspeed HSPA (+). the rootmetrics and just about every other test done by PCWorld and PCMag has said that T-mobile has the fastest 3G network and 2nd/3rd fastest 4G network. Also when T-mobile finishes with the refarming by Q4 this coverage issue will be no more.

Tmo is faster in many " market " areas but not in rural areas.
They even may be faster in rural areas when you can get on the network.
Success in connecting to 3G in those areas is behind Sprint.

Just because you keep saying it doesn't make it true...

Re: Anyone else HATE SPRINT

I pulle dthe plug on Sprint. I switched to Verizon. I got an awesome deal on phones thru Amazon wireless. I did email Dan@sprint.com. I had a rep call me. They started network investigation. I was fed up before I sent the email and had already started the process with Verizon. Sprint says I didn't give them enough time (a week) to do the investigation. Since I ported out they are not continuing the investigation and they are not waiving the ETF. It's $240 but since I couldn't really use the phones and I can use Verizon I'll just have to eat the cost. Hopefully I can sell my Sprint phones to help cover some of my cost. So far Verizon is awesome. Good coverage, price is close to what I was paying Sprint.

Sprint won't put lte here for a very long time. Verizon already has it here.

The device specs alone will keep me.
Nothing comes close to the ONE X or EVO LTE. I hate AT& T so...
