[AH] Sprint Chairman Says US Internet Speeds are “Horrible” And He’s Fixing It

post #1 of 95
Thread Starter 
Quote:
From recent studies, we know that the internet speeds here in the US aren’t the fastest, in fact they are some of the slowest in the world. While we have some of the highest wireless bills in the world. Masayoshi Son has stated that he is working to fix that, at least on Sprint. Re/Code interviewed the Sprint Chairman in Washington DC today where Son bashed the internet service that’s currently available here, and stated it was “horrible”. Basically saying it’s way too slow and way too costly. He also admitted that Sprint’s internet speeds are pretty bad as well, which is partially why they are #3 right now.

Yes, and he also says allow me to merge with T-Mobile and I'll promise to make it better. wink.gif

Because big Corporations haven't fed that BS to us before. Allow less competition and it will benefit the consumer. We promise!
And long behold some excuse will rear it's ugly head after approval and merger taking place.

I hate centurylink with a burning passion. I've called them a few times having to threaten cancelling my account just to get them to do anything about the super slow service.

I'm not sure how Sprint buying T-mobile would suddenly give them the ability to compete with cable internet providers. Also, its my opinion that Sprint should work on their 3G speeds and 4G coverage before tackling other markets.

Although it would be interesting if I could choose between a CDMA and GSM phone when shopping at Sprint...

Good luck Mr. Son, I unfortunately know all too well how much of a problem the FCC is. May all your money help you do what us little guys can't in the wireless industry, just um, stay out of my neck of the woods.

I thought we had it bad here in Australia?
I don't really complain with 100mbps cable, but apparently this is slow....

Same. Though I don't own the WISP I work for, but we're one of the little ones out west so while I'm glad to see progress, I also want a job thumb.gif

At home I'm on a 100-110mb cable connection (depending on time of day) through Bright House (TW). No complaints here.

It's called infrastructure. And Sprint is No. 3 for a reason. Do you lay down more lines or build on top, what is cheapest? I remember the millions Verizon poured into their 4G LTE to watch it become the new standard.

Now, they can sit back and watch the cash roll in as they charge an arm and an leg for web access, gods it's great to have vision.
