    Did Sprint raise the throttle limit on AT&T roaming?

    I was in a place where normally Sprint only has 1x and noticed I had full signal. Went into field test mode and saw 310-410 MNC and Band 14. Ran a few speed tests and saw “3G” like speeds roaming on AT&T where it was previously 128Kbps.

    I just checked my Sprint account and it doesn’t show any off network usage, but I guess that may take a while to update?

    I’m using an iPhone XS & the Kickstart $25 plan.

    If you were in an area that Sprint had a roaming agreement with At&t that usage will take longer to show when it is off network. Are you certain you weren't on At&t Wifi ? I remember that At&t had free Wifi at several locations (Barnes & Noble, McDonalds for example).
    Don't make me turn this car around.....
