The article is extremely misleading. They REALLY should have named this article: Verizon 4G LTE Verizon 4G LTE ‘blows away’ Sprint’s WiMAX in 1,000 speed tests IN THE NYC AREA

My AT&T 3G speeds are higher than the Sprint 4G speed there. Of course it's totally different from place to place, but either something is wrong with the 4G in that area, or Sprint truly has terrible 4G speeds, lol.

Just tested my ThunderBolt here in STL, take the upload with a lot of salt since the ThunderBolt has a large buffer apparently which causes extremely high uploads.


The great thing about Verizon is that they have ~30 cities 4G already and plan to add ~130 through out 2011. They want their entire network to be 4G as fast as they can it seems.

What??? I pay 10.00 a month for unlimited and uncapped data with sprint. I pay 129.00 for both me and my wifes line with unlimited data, text, etc and 1500 minutes. TONS cheaper than i was paying with Verizon and that was without data.

What plan are you on?????

Sprint told me one data service for only one line on my family plan would be $70USD/month...which doubles the monthly bill basically.

You pay a $10 Premium for having a 4G phone....not just $10 for data. Sprint includes the unlimited data into all of their plans but if you get a Evo, Evo Shift, or Epic you get a $10 charge for 4G. So we don't know what Sprint actually charges for just their data.
Verizon charges $30 for unlimited data no matter what phone you have. I get a 26% discount with Verizon which is why I chose them over Sprint, plus a lot of my friend's have EVOs so I got the upgraded EVO
