    Default Sprint really improving there network or just luck?

    I usually get around 5-13 mbps and sometimes up to 20-30 but I just did a speed test and got 63 mbps download. This was at 11:00 AM in Manhattan

    Seems to be improving. It's been excellent here in Philadelphia. There is one area here Upper Darby Pa where it's still sketchy.

    I was in Birmingham Alabama last weekend and LTE was pretty great so much so I never used the Hilton WiFi at the hotel. I was able to upload videos to FB and Instagram with ease.

    I feel like my network quality went down recently here in New York. I have to a speed test and catch up on the numbers.

    I had Sprint in Southeast Michigan and consistently never saw more than 2-3mbps. While I saw some improvement over time it still wasn't enough to keep me as a customer. Hopefully they continue to invest in infrastructure, especially in poor service areas.

    And this is at school where I don't particularly get good service with sprint or T-Mobile. I have T-Mobile with my iPad and it's just as bad coverage wise and even slower speeds

    I don't like checking LTE speeds because it uses too much data.

    Well the thread is about if or have sprint service improved lol. That's why I am with sprint. Unlimited data. Get to tired of paying so much with Verizon to deal with data caps. Was giving them $150 a month after taxes for 10 gb plan with the finance charges and an iPad included on the plan for $10

    I eat at this Chinese food place reguarly and notice speeds have gotten better here. Used to be around 2-7 mbps with 2 bars around the same time and now 15 or so mbps

    In California on Sprint. Came from Verizon. BIG MISTAKE! New iPhone 6s Plus is a great phone. Calls don't come through on a regular basis. Can't use data and call simultaneously. Can't wait to get off 1MB download speed on LTE and back on Verizon at 30+!

    That is at home. On Verizon I averaged around 7 mbps, AT&T I averaged around 9-10 mbps and with t-mobile I got 0 since I don't get service at all

    It's always depends on where you live. Overall I found AT&T the best network in terms of speed and coverage for me but is expensive plus I want unlimited data. Sprint I have a few dead spots specially at school but I have WiFi and wifi calling so it's not a huge deal. Sprint for me is a lot cheaper and unlimited data so I don't have to worry about overage charges

    I've been getting less than 5 down for a few months now. My Verizon speeds were much better.

    That's actually the fastest speeds I have gotten in my apartment out of all four carriers.
