What is your data speed on 3g?
I am sad because I am having data issues on 3g (there's no 4g yet for my area). At speedtest.net my download speed is around 0.14 and my upload speed is around 0.06. My signal strength is usually around -120 dBm!!!
I tried updating my PRL and profile but that did not help. I called Sprint and they told me to take it in to a Sprint store for them to look at. I dropped it off at 6 p.m. and they told me to come back around 6:45 p.m. and they should be done. When I returned the guy gave me my phone back and said "It checks out okay. It is getting 4 or 5 bars." I went out to my car and tried loading the speedtest.net page and, again, it was extremely slow. I went back in and asked the guy if he tried surfing out to the internet and he said no.
I showed him the screen for him to see that it was taking forever just to load the page. He asked if I had loaded any programs from the Market. (I knew where he was headed... Perhaps one of the programs I loaded was causing a problem.) I told him that he could do a factory reset if he thought that would help. He did but it did not help the data speeds. I ran the speedtest.net test to check the speeds and asked him to note it on the account. He had already turned off his computer (closing time is 7) but he told me one of the sales people could make a note on my account.
Since I'm reading some others are having problems, I'm hoping there will be an OTA real soon to fix it. I really like this phone and want to keep it.
I know not everyone is having problems so I wonder if it is a different build or why the differences.

I saw this thread and was curious to see what mine was, so I went to speedtest.net and could barely load the webpage. I even tried it on my wifi at home, and it was being just miserable. I used to use Dolphin HD browser on my Hero, so I went and dled it real quick and installed. Using my wifi I jumped to Speedtest and ran it getting 11mb down 1.5 up and 192 ms ping. Gotta grab my son from the bus stop so I will let you know what my 3g is when I get back.

Just for giggles, those of you getting low 3G speeds, turn off your GPS
i was getting between 300kbps and 600kbps, turned off the GPS i was getting between 600kbps and 1mbps. it's a big jump for me (3G isn't that great where i work, but i noticed a difference)HTC Evo4G
CyanogenMOD 6.1.1 Nightly 203
Zendroid 1.0.2 BFS AVS SBC
Linpack: 37.259 MFLOPS
Fastest Evo in town :-D

Thanks to all who have replied and made suggestions. I'm hoping to get a feel for whether this is common and will perhaps be resolved by an OTA soon, or if I just got a dud. I really like this phone so I hope it will be resolved.

My data speed has been alright from the start but I was having provisioning erros so hopefully this might help you guys. like 2 posts above that said its like resetting your phone.
I was getting text messages on both my old phone and new .
##RTN# on your old phone and enter your MSL. to get your MSL on connect bot if your phone is rooted type in SU, then ( getprop ) after you enter msl and press reset the phone should start resetting it. Once when you get to the part will the phone will actually boot the animation pull the battery and on your new phone update both PRL and Data. this fixed my text message issue and GPS locks in indoors withiin 5 secs hopefully this helps

Mine seems very dependent on where I am. At home last night I was getting around 600-700kbps down sometimes up to 1100kbps, at work in the cafeteria above ground I was only getting 300kbps down and in the basement of my hospital I was getting 1200kbps down. It seems to vary a lot.
4G varies a lot too between 2Mbps and 7Mbps depending on where I am.
Upload speed I cannot remember off the bat but seemed to fall in line with download speeds. 4G upload speeds usually maxes around 1Mbps no matter where I am and 3G upload speeds vary from 300-600kbps usually I think.
The internet always seems fast though so I haven't really worried about speeds too much and only tested because of this thread.
