Right now, I am getting 1.1Mbps d/ 860 k u
has anyone ran a speed test on the 4s? Wanted to know what the speeds were like on Sprint's 3G.
I'm running on the iPhone 3GS using Tmobile edge and im getting .19/mbps down and .08/mbps up.
Was wondering what the stats were for Sprint so I can decide if I want to jump over to Sprint for the iPhone 4s.

No iPhone on Sprint here (yet) but speeds anywhere from about .19 like your T-Mobile experience to 2.9mbps, it just depends. 3G will be better than edge. Test it out and see how it works for you.
CDMA maximum is 3.1 mbps as it stands now
When Rev.B is added that will increase
2.0mbps would be considered very good on CDMA. I have broke the 2.0 barrier on quite few Sprint tests. Even at peak times.
Home ISP, RR-Ultimate WiFi, $90/mo | Verizon 4G, $30/mo Unlimited
School, $5,000/semester | Work
I think its not "when it is added", its "if RevB is added".

speeds are going to be dependent on where you live and even where in your particular are you're at. probably better off asking what sprint users in your area are getting off of speedtest for results at least for another couple of weeks

Now they did talk about EVDO advanced which can be applied to both Rev. A and Rev. B. I do think that Sprint has the spectrum to do both LTE and couple more EVDO channels but again, why?
This is the highest i got yesterday.
This is Roaming in Metro PCS
Yes the Iphone can roam in Metro, i did it intentionally by turning off my airave and going into one corner of my garage.
Note how it says Extended and not Roaming

Metro's 3G not so speedy. But 1.81/1.0 is good, and that ping is nice as well.
I guess we will know at the end of the month when they have the Q3 meeting.
The iPhone on Sprint should get similar speeds to other Sprint EV-DO devices. EV-DO tends to average around 1Mbps. Independent speed-tests conducted will probably give you the best information: http://www.pcmag.com/Fastest-Mobile-Networks-2011. Asking people here isn't really a great way of getting information. People exaggerate (both ways) and it's completely unscientific.
EDIT: Apparently there has been some reports that the iPhone has been having trouble on Sprint: http://www.macrumors.com/2011/10/15/...g-data-speeds/. I wouldn't put a ton of weight in those reports. With potentially half a million new Sprint iPhone users this weekend, it's likely that some are having problems and reporting it as if it's widespread. Apple is using a standard Qualcomm chipset and it's unlikely that there's anything Sprint specific wrong with the iPhone - Sprint is using standard PCS spectrum. I'm guessing that Ookla will put out a press release in the next week or so with the aggregated results of tens of thousands of speed tests from iPhone 4S users on all three networks. That will tell the real story.
My data speed is so slow it's unusable. I left H2O wireless because I couldn't get speeds faster than 250 Kbps and I'm barely getting 100 Kbps with Sprint.
