No sympathy

I have no sympathy to those fools who continue to pay for throttled services. Sprint may not be the fastest but at least it's truly unlimited.

for now. Sprint is going down hill rather quickly. Especially with all that $$$ going to Apple. No room to expand really, network upgrades will be where they are most needed for ROI and caps and overages will be coming.

And throttling is still UNLIMITED they are NOT stopping or billing in overages.

As a Sprint user I haven't noticed any decline in the network here in the Minneapolis market.

They also put together a site that tracks work orders for capacity upgrades; it doesn't look like they've slowed down much. See: »network.sprint.com

Says who???
Sprint is the only good wireless ISP as they are unlimited.

I have ATT on a family plan, but I refuse to pay for internet as it is not really needed. I use a knockoff phone running android with wifi only so ATT does not detect it as a smart phone and automatically charge me.

If I needed mobile internet my first choice would be sprint.

I had sprint in chicago. Worst phone company ever for data. 1-1.5Mb was the fastest i got in DuPage when i wasn't at 1xRtt. lol.
I prefer my 10Gb cap with these speeds than crappy unlimited.

My friend in Barrington, IL has been using Sprint for phone and home internet access since 2006. He noticed call issues and data issues with both the phone and home internet right after the iPhone was released to Sprint. All I know is that for close to a month, it was lots of hoping and praying to get a Yahoo page to load. My two cents on Sprint's network near me.

In regards to Unlimited users and the cap, I am one of those users and have yet to receive a message. Granted, my last bill showed me using 2.2 GB of data. I stream Pandora all the time, I am sure that has something to do with it. If I get the message, I will leave for sure. I pay almost $200 a month for both my wife's phone and my phone. Top that off with another $150 for uVerse, give me a reason to leave.

Sprint's network by definition is more limited than AT&T's, because EVDO is a lot slower than AT&T's UMTS/WCDMA. So unlimited is just a marketing gimmick.

Sprint has limited coverage where I am.

I have no choice.

That said, 2GB is plenty for my needs on a smartphone.
