    Default Has anyone done a real-world Spark test?

    I may be upgrading, and am in a Spark area, just I've only seen Spark at the store, not in practice. Can anyone in South FL report on the speeds they're getting?

    Sorry. Missed that part.
    Check here: "Sprint Spark" - Official Name for the Tri-Band Network (was "Sprint to Demo Its 2.5GHz Network Technology") - Network, Network Vision/LTE Deployment - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

    Doesn't seem to mention it either. May just take the plunge and get the Nexus 5.

    My speed test results were about the same as before but my phone seems way faster. I just got my update today maybe it'll improve in a few days.

    You posted the Same speedtest in the T-Mobile Forum. This is for Sprint speedtests.

    And your point? Sprint spark is supposed to be much faster than anything else. T-Mobile clearly wins.

    I think the point of this post is to see how real world Spark tests are.. Not make it a competition. If it was a competitive post I'm sure it would be something like "Spark tests vs. T-Mobile".

    Try and respect the OP so he can get the results he asked about and not turn it into a carrier war. .

    Clearly sprint spark is just another gimmick.

    My LTE is just fine.
    "Spark" is not a switch that is flipped which then gives everyone instantly fast speeds.
    It is a process of them updating all of their towers to broadcast LTE on 3 different bands.
    Once it is all up and running across the country, it will be a force to be reckoned with.
    Learn it. Know it. Live it.

    P.S. No promotional fees were paid for this testimonial. I am Maverick and I approve this message.

    Seriously please stop trying to change the OP's post. This isn't a versus... More of a Sprint Spark speed test thread.

    Sorry.
    I got pulled into a "discussion" that does not belong here.

    I would also love to see some speed tests from a Spark market.
