dmchssc Posted July 7, 2012 Share Posted July 7, 2012 I was traveling about a week ago, and when traveling through some rural areas with native Sprint coverage, my 3G speeds were horrible. 20-30 kbps and pings around 500 ms. I decided to switch my phone to 1x only mode as an experiment. With 1x, my speeds went up to a consistent 130 kbps but with higher pings. So, EVDO exhibited heavy strain, whereas 1x was close to its full capabilities. Does 1x get a higher priority of access to back haul than EVDO because of its typical voice traffic?
