When I got sprint back in March I got around 2-4 MBPS in my apartment. Now I am getting around 8-9mbps. Currently faster then my cable Internet which I should be getting 50 MBPS but currently getting around 5 MBPS the past few days


This picture was from last night speed test

That's good, but still a little slow for LTE. My speed it a lot faster with AT&T.

With AT&T in my apartment I got around 14 MBPS
Verizon: 8-9 MBPS
T-Mobile: 0 MBPS since I don't get service


I've been getting around 10-25 MBPS outside and the highest I've seen is 45 MBPS.

All in all considering the price and unlimited data for now I say it's not bad when you consider how bad I've heard sprint was years ago. Of course it's not as good as Verizon or AT&T but I've seen a good improvement over the past few months

I've actually seen 66 MBPS.


I have never considered sprint before because I was afraid of slow data speeds but I've been mostly a happy customer with sprint.

I'm in Brooklyn. I do some traveling in new Jersey to get to Philadelphia and it was OK down 95. Was certainly livable speeds to listen to music and directions through Google maps.



Here is a speed test while I was on i76

Just switched to VZW from Sprint on 9/25 and couldn't be happier. I even footed a hefty ETF bill to do it!

So yeah I had great speeds at time with Verizon I also had quite a decent amount of times where it was bad. Sprint has been improving in nyc and it shows since I've started with them. Yeah not as fast as Verizon but half the price for me and unlimited data



Those speed tests were on Verizon using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 last year and that sprint one was on an iPhone 6 plus last week

Not bad at all. I think any network, even Sprint, is going to make sure they have good coverage in NYC. It's the same way in Chicago. I travel there frequently for work and Sprint was always awesome. At the end of the day, every carrier has good service areas and bad service areas. If Sprint works and it's half the price then you got a good deal. In Southeast Michigan, Sprint still sucks as of today.
