    Default Sprint has really stepped it up with data speeds in my area

    I've been a long time sprint customer for over 12 years now, and 3g has never been one of there strong points...

    I've had many different phones and never got over 1mbps down and 500kbps up...

    when the iphone came out on sprint i saw a drop in 3g speeds...

    then tonight i was at a new years party and i noticed my phone is loading pages much quicker then an att iphone 4s and my friend asked me "what carrier do you have your 4s on"

    then we both ran a speed test he was getting 1.4-1.5

    then i got this

    it went up to 2.2mbps but at the very last second it dropped down as you see...

    if sprint can keep it at least at 1.5 mbps i will be more then happy and will never really care for 4g on an iphone (unless i would be tethering)

    not worth the battery life if you ask me.

    So you guys tell me... have you noticed data speed increases as well? or am i just one of the lucky few
