Yeah, the network is only one piece. The network could be better than Verizon but no one will care because of the reputation the Sprint name has attached to it. Sending out devices to top reviewers, or even a test drive like program would possibly need to be done to show people that the network is on par or even better than their competitors.
Got lucky today and met an awesome guy at a Sprint store who let me take a glance at glance lol, and was able to confirm that a bunch of the small cells deployed post clearwire conversion, are indeed UE relay fead.
The detail offered in Glance is quite impressive!
