AT&T on the other hand is supposed to be much better. I know for a fact that AT&T gives me data speeds literally 10x faster than what Sprint gives me at home (actual speed test). That is, if you assume I'm getting anything at all.
Will SoftBank's acquisition of Sprint or the Network Vision upgrades they are doing improve coverage in my area? I'm supposed to get LTE in San Jose, CA, USA (South Bay) by "the end of 2013, at latest". I dunno if I can wait that long. I do get an occasional LTE signal, which means they're working on it, but it's oh so unstable.
What is Sprint's focus? Is it to spread wider to cover more people, or is it to improve upon what little they have right now?
A friend of mine recently had Verizon terminate his contract for free because he wasn't satisfied with the service. Will Sprint do something like this for me? Or should I force roam? I heard this will drop you from your contract and you won't be hit with any charges. Will there be an ETF or will the phones be permanently disabled? Will there be a grace period?
Wherever I look, there are many people saying Sprint sucks, but then there are a handful of people saying that Sprint's technology is far more advanced and it will all be worth it once LTE rollout is complete. I'll probably be holding onto the HTC One for the next 3 years, and I don't want to be stuck on what speeds I have for the price I'm paying. What should I do? I'm currently supposed to be in a "Good 3G/Wimax area", which is disappointing. Will Sprint try to cover me better?
As you can see from this Sensorly data, Sprint technically covers where I live pretty well. But in the 3 months (ish) I've had my phone, I've never gotten any speeds that could compare to Tmobile's HSPA+.
