cappy Posted January 9, 2012 CID Report Share Posted January 9, 2012 Curious about other users Sprint network speeds are, whether they are using 3G or 4G. Please specify if you are using a cell phone, or mobile broadband card. Not quite sure where the sprint tower is, I only know of the Verizon tower location near me. Seems my local tower is getting worse. Anytime between 12PM to 9PM its nearly unusable. Download speeds range from 5 kB/s to 20 kB/s.. Once every few weeks you might get a good connection during the day. Upload speeds are the worst, getting anywhere from 1 kB/s (yes, 1) to 10. 30 minutes later Don't think I'm just picking out the slow results, that's what its like during daytime hours. After 10PM it usually speeds up. You can get anywhere from 50kB/s to 160 kB/s on the download(lately it doesn't go higher than 120), around 20 to 60 on the upload. Highest achieved speed in a few weeks. Back in November i would hit 200 kB/s. Granted, I usually only achieve those speeds by updating the PRL a few times to reconnect. Either a hit or a miss, you get lucky or you don't. All results are with 5 bars, and a -65 dBm. Have to love the unlimited data though even if you can only use it at night. Average ping for after 11PM. During the daytime hours, it sits between 600-2k if you are not doing anything else online.
