Is it my 3G antena, Sprint network or Evo 3D for this...

For the past 2-3 weeks I have tracked my speed for the 3G and it's terrible. I have contacted Sprint tech support, and they blame my phone that is not pulling enough from the network, and that the network shows great speeds.

I've attached some screen shots for the 3G, 4G and WiFi speed tests I've done, which seems to be the average I get here in Vegas.

What makes me doubt about my phone is that, even though my home connection is 10+Mbs, and I connect my phone to my Airave, I still get a ping and speed as if I was outside connected to Sprint 3G network.

Please help me figure out if it is my 3G antenna, Sprint network, or the EVO in general that has the issue by posting your speeds please.

I have the exact same problem on my Evo 3D.  For example, when I had my original EVO 4G, I could allow my brother to connect to my mobile hotspot at the campground and he could play Call of Duty: Black Ops on the PS3 Network.  Once I upgraded to my EVO 3D, this was no longer possible, I can't even watch Netflix via my PS3 without it buffering every few minutes....so i'm deducing it to a bad antenna, and i've had the same problem with the 3 advance exchanges I have had on my phone as well.

Network, not the antenna......Mine has done the same thing over the past couple of months.

I have seen my phone pull down 1.2 on 3G and then 2 hours later it barely can pull 250kbs.
