    Very good point. Lol. Sprint does okay in my area but nothing compared to the other 3... AT&T slacks around 12 Mbps.

    In one area in the city when I travel Sprint I've seen a max around 20mbps on LTE. And on AT&T at the same time and place 130mbps over LTE. Granted the 20mbps was over Tello and not Sprint but still

    Did several tests a few minutes ago. On the gsm lte sim, using the speed test app, downloads appear to be throttled at ~1mbps, uploads are around 8-10 mbps.

    Doing the test on dslreports.com/speedtest, I get about 14 mbps on the download, 8 mbps upload. Maybe they're just throttling the speed test sites?

    Edit: Doing the test on a different phone with a different lte sim I get 30 mbps on the download. Something's not right here!@#

    Edit2: Tried again on the first phone, now getting unthrottled speeds again. I didn't check to see which band it was connected to the first time. Wonder if that had something to do with it.

    On my Sprint FP devices I can see the initial speed spike, and then watch the throttling kick in and clamp down the speed to 1 Mbps.

    Not yet impacting my FP Global SIM or my FP LTE SIM, but I'm not running out to get more of those right away because they, too, could be throttled at any time.
