Need to vent!!!

I love my TP2 but H-A-T-E my service! I'm sick of hearing Spring commercials bragging about their BLINDING fast 3G service..

me.... Very rarely over 1mbps down and usually about 300k up

speedtest.net----pingtest....ALWAYS times out on packetloss test...almost always over 200ms ping (as high as 541) jitter is high and my best score to date is a D.

A lousy, rotten D.

DSL reports speed test..same junk..

BLINDING FAST MY FOOT!

There I feel better now (not really)

My dream reply would be for some big shot Sprint rep to see this post...have compassion on me and send a team of techs out to optomize the tower closest to me or revamp the entire network on my behalf so their advertising claims would no longer be FALSE ADVERSTISMENTS!

Thanks for listening....I love you all!

Re: Need to vent!!!

Sprint is just not good on your area...

no matter how large the company may be, some areas in every company will be crappy. just find what company has better coverage in your area and go from there.

Re: Need to vent!!!

Seriously, what recourse does one man have to get it fixed? ...Unfortunately I have 5 phones on my Sprint account 3 of which had no data plan whatsoever until we were forced to change plans. All of them still under contract.

The customer service has improved with Sprint over the course of time (used to get hung up on-laughed at...you name it)

BUT..how does ones go about getting anyone at Sprint to care about the service in my area?

I mean with the cable company (I used to be a net-op tech)....we worked on area line problems until they were resolved. Balanced amps, tweaked nodes, replaced water damaged coax, whatever...

With Sprint....or any carrier for that matter..there is no such thing as having a tech come out.!?!

Any advice other than just calling Sprint and giving them my results...what would that do? Its not like they will dispatch someone...yet there MUST be techs in my area maintaining these towers...right????

Re: Need to vent!!!

Dude, you need to chill out. First this is the right "FORUM" to vent just not the right thread or area......http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/forumdisplay.php?f=77

Second who are you to sit here and tell some this forum is not the place for you to vent? This isn't the first thread here about venting and most likely not the last in the TP2 section. You kno seems like a lot of people here lately are either mad or angry. Looking at a lot of post, seems like this anger is toward the NEWER MEMBERS. Just my 2 cents
