So Network Vision is slowly but immensely improving the overall experience on Sprint. Luckily living in the Bay Area a large amount of this work has already begun and is continuing each day. For a while I was seeing improvement and loved Sprint for every moment. At the begging of this week all of this suddenly disappeared, being an avid reader of this site I assumed it was an upgrade and just continued on with my day. Now it's near the end of the week and no improvement whatsoever. Basically I would like to know if this is a device related problem (iPhone 4, iOS 6.1, PRL 51094) or if it's an network upgrade which I'll just ignore.

Wow, that is a huge difference. Did you call sprint to see if maybe there were tower issues in your area?

This exact thing happened here in McPherson Kansas. They are having to slowly upgrade the software in the base station would took about a week and a half or two weeks. At least that was the case here but they also had to reconnect the old t1 lines instead of new back haul.

It could have been caused by an issue with the new equipment, so they turned the old stuff back on in the meantime. This is one of the reasons they are leaving the old 3G equipment on the towers wherever possible. If something happens that requires an extended downtime on the new stuff, they can turn the old stuff back on temporarily to fill in the gap.

No I haven't been able to call Sprint yet but, this weekend I have to go a Sprint store for device related issues regarding another line. I could tell them if it continues tomorrow. Hopefully it gets resolved soon, probably some permit hold up or something because in Alameda their pretty tight about this stuff.
