Are Millenicom subscribers's bandwidth a low priority?

I went and talked to the local Sprint store in my area (a reseller.) This outfit actually own the closest tower to my house that Sprint uses. When I mentioned about possibly going through a reseller for my data plan, the salesperson told me that my data would be at a lower priority over an actual direct Sprint customer and that might affect my speed. Has anyone else heard of this or experienced this?

The Sprint store was using Scare tactics . There is absolutely no truth to what you were told regarding Millenicom.

I know that VIRGIN MOBILE users (whether broadband or mobile phones) ARE a lower priority on SPRINT towers....

Yeah he mentioned Virgin Mobile being in the same boat. I wasn't sure if it was scare tactics or if it was legit, and even if it is legit if it would affect me that much.

On VM I have never had an issue with priority. You will find that it only comes into play on really busy towers (if they even do it anymore).

It was scare tactic . Millenicom users get the same priority as direct Sprint users . Virgin is a discount service owned by Sprint directly , it has no relationship to priority given to Millenicom users ! . Before you brought it up this clown had no idea who Milenicom even is.
