Sprint has been turning it around the last year or so if I am recalling correctly.

And no one here has even mentioned that Sprint is actually rumored to be going to LTE anyway.

I dunno I was always raised you pay for quality, and with my 2 smartphones and netbook I have through Verizon I feel I get more than what I pay for. The coverage is better than any other carrier, the realiability, even quality of handsets has been better(I know they really have no control over handset quality). But yeah, Verizon may cost more but its worth every penny to me! especially as much as my wife and I travel and usually by car.

I have an HTC Evo and the numbers are wrong. No if ands or buts. End of story. Next time I'm in Tampa bay area I'll post back with a screenshot of speedtest.net.

Even then, Sprint's data service is insanely priced.

For the cost of sprint's data plan by itself I could get 3 entire basic smartphone plans through Virgin Mobile.

for me, i dont look at price as much as reliability. with verizon i can make phone calls and have 3g in alot of places friends and family cant even call from. for me the extra $50 i pay a month over there plans(family plan) is worth it as i travel alot.

lol, wow there is some serious misinformation in this thread. Sometimes it scares me how little many people here know about other aspects of technology.

Here is a Speed Test for my VZW 4G Hotspot. It goes to show the potential power VZW's 4G has.
