    The reason for my question is because at the beginning of the month I get really good speeds. But half way into the month my speeds get really really slow and I am unable to do anything. Anyone else notice this?

    Throttle? Sprint is already the slowest when it comes to data now. If they did throttle, your data would probably be stopped altogether.

    I agree. The funny thing though is at the beginning of the month I can actually watch YouTube videos. But after the 15th it's impossible to load YouTube.

    There's a reason why their data is unlimited: it's slow as hell!! That's why I left them and went to AT&T

    Sprint is slow, but thats slower than usual. I would get something like that indoors with hardly any signal strength.

    I love Sprint but I have noticed some strange stuff with their data. I get to work at 5:30 am before anyone else. I work in a concrete building where I get iffy signal. From 5:30- about 6:45 I can stream Spotify radio with no issues when when the rest of the world wakes up and starts using data (about 6:45 or 7), Spotify cuts in and out and I have to shut it off. Go figure. I don't complain because this only happens at work behind thick concrete walls anyway.

    what do you mean by throttle.... because when i think of the word in regards to data i think of slowing down my data speed. Sprint gets just about 1mb and lower nationwide.....
    and if anyone can prove me wrong post a pic of your speed test

    Sprint's 3G can be fast(see pic). Granted it is slow as a whole, but this is the reason why I can be patient with them. They are actually working on upgrading their towers and will hopefully see LTE with a 100Mb download speed backbone(Verizon has only a 50Mb download speed backbone) in my area(Springfield, Missouri) around January with UNLIMITED data! All those that switched to AT&T or Verizon will soon regret their decision.

    Oh man, those speeds are unacceptable, but the reality is they are the average, a good friend has a SG3 on sprint here in Naples, Fl and the download average is 0.2Mbps on 3G, he cant use youtube, google maps, etc

    Wait, what? You mean Sprint isn't using "unlimited dial up" now?

    From what I have heard, Sprint bypassed the 3G upgrade, as in making their existing 3G network better. They've gone straight to 4G LTE development/deployment. This explains the horrific 3G speed compared to Verizon's 3G. During work hours, I'd be lucky to get 300Kbps (download). I have to wait until 1 AM or so to even get close to 1Mbps. The ONLY reason I'm staying with Sprint is because of the 23% discount. I'd rather have fast, limited data and get what I need done than slow, unlimited data.

    I live in the DC area and they still have not deployed LTE yet. It's the nation's capital!!! Good grief!!
