    Default Internet super slow?

    I don't know if it's just me but if I only say have 2 or 3 bars, my internet is extremely sloww. I was using my friends Android phone the other day, on Sprint. She only had 2 bars yet the internet was super fast!

    Does anyone know if this is normal?

    The bars have no bearing on how fast/slow your internet connection is. The bars simply measures signal strength in relation to the cell tower.

    Are you on Wifi, 3G, or Edge? Edge is dreadfully slow, while 3G is faster and Wifi is, obviously, the fastest.

    There are too many variables involved with Internet speed

    Lunghk- the number of bars can determine speed. Not always, but it can
