said by scott2020:In some areas Sprint will add a lot more customers, in others they won't. Also they probably haven't backed up your cell towers with upgraded backhaul.
Over the past year I have seen my overall speeds decrease. I used to consistently get over 1 meg down and at least 700-800k up on 3G. Now I get 300-400k tops down and about the same up. I have been using Android for the past 2.5 years or so.
If someone took a poll, I would bet overall across the board, Sprint's speeds on all devices are lower than they were 2 years ago. I have friends with air cards that switched to Verizon because Sprint slowed down so bad.
