    Tonight I was streaming music and the stream stopped. I looked and instead of 3G or LTE it showed 1x. Needless to say I couldn't get any connection while on this. What is 1x? I'm new to Sprint and my phone is the Nexus 6. Also... previously I was an AT&T subscriber. While on AT&T I never saw 3G..everything was either 4G or LTE. Isn't 3G old technology? Why does Sprint still use 3G?

    Asking to see what Market you are in which would indicate the status of Sprint's upgrades in your area.

    Mav, what Android analytical tools are you using on your Nexus 6! I'm using Signal Check Pro and WiFi Analyzer.

    Those two plus some "LTE Discovery" action.

    1x or 1x RTT meaning "1 times Radio Transmission Technology" is the core CDMA technology that drives Sprint's voice network that runs on 1900MHz PCS and 800MHz SMR. 1x RTT is considered a 3G technology because it is based on CDMA2000 which is a third generation technology, this network will be around for quite sometime.

    Sprint's voice network is on 800MHz and 1900MHz - 1x RTT maximum throughput is about 70-152kbits per second kbits/s
    Sprint's 3G EV-DO Rev. A (EVolution - Data Optimized Revision A.) network is on 1900MHz only, maximum throughput is 3.1Mbits/s
    Sprint's LTE network runs on 800MHz Band 26, 1900MHz PCS Band 25, and 2600MHz BRS (Broadband Radio Service) Band 41 speeds can vary between 5Mbps to 60Mbps depending on what band your connected too.

    Hope this helps bring a little insight into Sprint's network.
