Re: PC World: Sprint has the Most Reliable 3G Network

ah that sucks.. i think down south sprint has better coverage..like me i live way out in the country and have rev A and have outstanding speeds..

this would be a point of how location comes into play when looking for a carrier.. here t-mobile or verizon might be a better match for u.. unless your on sero..lol then i would say stay...

Re: PC World: Sprint has the Most Reliable 3G Network

Im in the Chattanooga TN area, and I have to tell you...Sprint is about the best as far as coverage, speeds, and the least on dropped calls.
I have VZW for about 8 years, then switched to Sprint about 6 months ago... LOVE IT. I also have an ATT phone that my work provides me. Of the 3 carriers I have had, Sprint is #1 in my book.

Re: PC World: Sprint has the Most Reliable 3G Network

Ugh, here we go: more fodder for Sprint users to be biased about. Here's why studies like this are biased and really not correct...

You should only be testing the reliability and speed at a point at which each carrier's tower is the same distance away and there is nothing in the way. Otherwise you're going to have too many variables. You also have to use the same phone (obviously).

I like how they left out T-Mobile, as well as Philadelphia, the known internet capital of the US.

Re: PC World: Sprint has the Most Reliable 3G Network

Well more than just PC World has said they tested and Sprint was the most reliable. Since everyone knows ATT and T-Mobile would never win it comes down to Sprint or Verizon. And since Verizon didn't dispute Sprint being the most reliable until recently and have not provided a test that shows otherwise I would imagine they're (Verizon) just figuring the Alltel acquisition should give them the boost to win.
