Exclamation Is T-Mobile and AT&T better than Sprint Service?

I currently have Sprint, but now i'm starting to get fed up with them. All their new phones are 4G LTE, but cant even use it because sprint doesn't have LTE in the East Coast of United States not until 2013. So only 3G will work which is BS.

How is T-Mobile and AT&T? Are the Internet speeds faster than Sprints?? Is there anyone that switched from Sprint to either of these company's that are now more Satisfied? Thanks

Re: Is T-Mobile and AT&T better than Sprint Service?

i switched to the big pink T from sprint


from i what i can see tmobile has really good speed and signal in urban areas and along major highways. i live on the out skirts of the city and signal is weak at home however Tmo has wifi calling so theoretically my router is a mini tower

as for being satisfied so far yes i pay less and have signal that is reflective to the cost of the service

Ok so basically, if you have real good Wifi signal. For instance, 5 bars of Wifi signal. Will that be your Cell Phone signal?? Or it doesnt work like that

Re: Is T-Mobile and AT&T better than Sprint Service?

I've switched from sprint to T-mobile last November and couldn't be happier. My speeds are faster than anything I've ever seen on sprint, I've seen anywhere from 1.8mb to 7mb. Also if you read this report below you'll see that T-mobile is faster than anything sprint has to offer. They also are even faster than Verizon LTE in some areas:

Most important thing is to check their coverage maps, make sure to zoom in on you're neighborhood, or work area. They can be good. Not so much in my area, my brother switched to Tmobile this year, and while he's saving maybe $10/month, he's stuck with slow 2g 85% of the time. Research is the key!

This "slow 2G" is faster than sprint 3G so even if OP was to switch and get 2G only he would still get a speed boost. Its fast enough to do some CD quality music streaming,web browsing and some GPS Navigation but no videos.

If he goes to ST he won't be able to stream as much as he would be able to if he went with T-mobile or even AT&T.

Its definitely not faster than the Sprint 3g speeds I get. I think my bro gets around 200 kb/sec, on a good day.

Your speeds aren't typical, the average speed for the entire country is 0.41mb/s ,I've seen that a few times on 2G,that's the fastest 2G can get.
