Still averaging around 500-600ms ping and 0.1 - 0.2 Mbps with 3G when I'm out of the house. Today it literally took me 5 minutes to send a text with photo attached. Ridiculous.
I think I'm going to jump ship with Sprint and eat the $350 early cancelation fee. Makes more sense to do that then pay $2000 over the next 2 years for poor service like this. What do I do with my 4S though? It can only be used with Sprint, right? I can't take it with me when I sign up for Verizon or AT&T?
Getting consistent speed in Wichita, KS (Zip Codes 67217, 67213, 67203, 67212, 67205). I hope things get better for those folks with speed issues.
Those are some good speeds. And quit sucking down the bandwidth for the rest of us....
Im kiding. Im on my way out anyways. Take it all. Its not a concern to me anymore. Free at last
MY zip code is 61701!!!!!
Follow mapsey advice on reporting slow speed on the Network and Coverage forum. Sprint will be able to help you if you start your own post.
Called sprint to complain about dropping calls at my house, after 2hrs on the phone and being cut off by one of the reps after the first hr, they finely determined that I qualified for a free Airave (basically a mini tower in my house). The 2nd rep said it would help with cellular but not data. (By the way, sprint rep, it does increase the data signal, you should know that!) Got it in the mail today and hooked it up. And this just confirms that it isn't my phone like one of the reps had said, "Apple is looking into a software problem that's causing bad signal and data speeds."
Wake Forest, NC 27587
Ping 237 ms
Prior to this it was:
Ping 856 ms
So basically the network is crap, if only Sprint could figure out how I could carry a tower in my pocket, I would be golden!
Well the airwave works through your internet connection at home. Since you got the airwave for reception but are only getting 1.45MB, why dont you just get wifi? I was getting 21mb on my wifi connection at home. But getting between 100kbps and 500kbps when I was away. Since i spend the majority of my time away and not on my home wifi......something had to give
Yeah, I never understood the point of the Airave. There isn't much point in having a mobile phone when it only works on a 50ft teather at home.
Might as well just get a land line instead.
The Airave is most beneficial for users who have great service in most places, but may have spotty coverage at home, perhaps due to home construction, or terrain.
From CNET: Sprint bulks up network for higher iPhone speeds
Looks like the fix has arrived to some and coming to other soon.
Yeah what about when your connection to data services sucks everywhere? at home and in the whole metropolitan area of denver colorado... Several cities and dozens of zip codes... getting below dial up speeds... slower than a 2G tmobile phones connection
