This is very good news. Hopefully some PRL updates will help some of you keep your phones until Sprint starts rolling out its network upgrades. We just need some reasonable data speeds to hold people over until then.

Sorry guys but I work grave yard and I sleep late ..to answer your question ..they opened a ticket for me because I stayed on with tech support trying multiple different things to better the connection. After none if it worked he created a trouble ticket for some network team to look into.. so early this morning an update pushes to my phone and now I'm getting 900kbps speeds.. I now have PRL 60681.. I guess Houston's network is under repair or upgrading or just plain clogged.

I don't trust that app. Same spot 5 tests in a row, completely sporadic results
