    Sprint Speed Tests

    I’m not a Sprint fan, but I recently took advantage of the free year for an extra line because... why not.

    This morning on my Starbuck’s run I ran a few Speedtests and I’m not gonna lie... I was shocked. Pretty sure this is the fastest download results I’ve ever had on ANY cellular provider:



    Even more surprising... this was in an urban area during rush hour (9:00 AM). This was on an IPhone XS.

    In a way, this is classic Sprint. A few points of high performance while the vast majority of the network is spotty. Still, gotta give them credit.

    I get faster 3G speeds than LTE if I'm not using the Magic Box.

    Not sure what's going on. But even on band 41 it's slow as a slug for me now. Test results are and were performed in same location late night. Did Pie beta mess this up perhaps? Without wifi its unbearable currently.

    Why are Sprints speeds lower than the others? I notice in my area they are using microwave for backhaul on most of their sites. I rarely ever see more than 75mb down. right next to a tower on band 41. While T-Mobile and [email protected] are are around 150mb on the same stick.

    Thought I’d attach a speed test from my Southern LINC phone as well. My typically speeds are between .5-3Mbps.... This is why I’ve always said they won’t allow Sprint to “roam like home” on their network. They are only running a single 1.4MHz as of now, and can possibly run a 3MHz channel now that iDEN is being shut off.

    I can’t complain... I’m in bed and getting full bars and great speeds.

    .32 down .18 up

    NW Ohio. It works ok for what i use it for, but WOW, that's bad.

    I used to pull down 2-3meg pretty regularly, but no more.

    Have they really taken on too many free users, or are they purposely downgrading before the merger?

    Wow that is bad! I’m seeing the opposite in LA speeds going up as well as signal strength. I suspect they’re concentrating resources on population centers which makes sense. Is NW Ohio a low income area? Maybe there are more freeloaders trying to use for their home internet?

    Magic Box is not available in my area.

    Also - it's not just in my house - it's everywhere.

    Not so much low-income, but fairly rural, so not many subscribers total.

    Actually, I'm the cheapest person i know - I'm the only one willing to use their service (because it's almost free). No one else will touch it because it's soooo poor.

    Shockingly so. I'm a little surprised that I haven't noticed it degrading that much, but I don't watch too many videos where I'm not on WiFi. Web browsing is still good enough at that speed.
