    Coming to DC as well, and I can honestly say the speeds are so slow, I can't even connect to speedtest!

    Well, since I'm repairing the credit my ex wife destroyed, sprint only required $100 deposit. I get 18% off my bill for an employee discount for somewhere I don't work anymore, and it's still cheaper than at&t (and I'd get 23% from them...)

    T-Mo is looking pretty nice these days huh? 3 billion from att in the bank, roaming on atts infrastructure, a stash of spectrum, and a plan to use all of it building a LTE foot print. Kevin O also mentioned their LTE network is an advanced network and prepared for future upgrades which is good to hear.

    All of the above coupled with discounted plans for folks who chose not to have them subsidize the device .... good moves.

    That isn't really fact. There are multiple factors that go into what speeds you are getting.

There's a reason why they both offer unlimited data (I know, T-mobile throttles the speed after 2 or 5gb). BTW, I was a T-mobile customer since '95 when they were Omnipoint. Switched over to At&t last November for the Skyrocket.
    This again is also dependent on where you live.

    As far as lawsuit, have fun with that, and having sprint show up on your credit report. Have you read the contract and tos?

    The lawsuit is laughable. That's about all that needs said about that.

    HSPA is 4G. But it is not LTE. It is not as good as LTE either. And about ATT speeds being faster, again, it is dependent on where you live.

    Sprint charged me nothing at all. 2 GNex for $0, $0 deposit, about $150/month everything unlimited, and acted kinna upset that I refused a third phone. Didn't even pay s&h or activation fees. When a company rocks with me like that I don't care what those other carriers offer me. I'm sticking it out with Sprint and waiting real patient like for that LTE. The cs rep asked me 1 question... "have I ever had a cell with them before?". Told her yes and she did the rest.

    The day after Hurricane Isaac I called to ask if I was being charged for roaming. Rep gave me a $300 temporary credit and a $15 permanent credit 'just in case' I got charged for it. Its things like that IMO that make waiting for Sprint's LTE worth it.

    Why the credit? Roaming is free on sprint.

    Idk. She said she was giving me the credit just in case I got charged. With water at my doorstep and out of work till power services were restored I didn't question it. Allowed me to keep cash on hand for other things the family was in need of so I wasn't gonna refuse it.

    Exactly. I doubt if AT&T or VZW much less T-Mobile would even offer it. Slow network irks me sometimes but all in all my user experience is more than satisfying. With LTE on the way it can only get better.

    Sprints customer service has gotten far better over the past 4 years or so then it used to be... I've ben on Sprint since 2001ish (massive work discount) and always had issues with customer service sucking until ~4 years ago, then they really turned a corner... I am one of the lucky users I guess who has never lived in a bad or poor coverage area and am almost always on a hotspot anyways... Mobile I get 1200ish down and 900ish up, that's plenty fast for my phone use (streaming MP3's, e-mail, looking crap up on the net ect). I lived in Portland for 6 months when I had my Epic 4G and while it was very fast (8mb down, 5 mb up) I never used it that much...

    Yeah I think they realized that with the economy like it is if a customer has to make a choice between paying the mobile bill or paying a more necessary bill...the necessary bill wins out. Not that the mobile bill isn't gonna get paid but if it has to wait till next week then it just has to wait. They will keep more customers in the long run. Most people I know don't even have a landline anymore so its basically a guarantee that the mobile bill is gonna get paid if they want to communicate.
