I'm from Jacksonville. The 3g speeds are pretty good. I get close to 1mb down anywhere I go during the day. The speeds has gotten a lot better than they used to be now that sprint has added additional carriers to most of the towers. Also I believe that Robert said that the network vision upgrades are starting in the Jacksonville region.

There will be some service hiccups through the next 6 months as Network Vision work is done in the JAX market. But it will improve the network drastically and will be worth it.

Thanks for the feedback. What phone are you using?

The network was running really good over there when I was in Orange Park/Lakeside/camp blanding/flemmimg island. I didn't go to downtown Jacksonville though so I'm not sure if the towers over there are getting good results. Right now I'm still in FL but now I'm in Miami so far everything is alright except the building staying at is a dead zone for all the carriers and it sucks.

It's very hit and miss from downtown through the westside and down towards middleburg.

Orange Park is good (from I-295 to about College Dr on Blanding). I haven't been over towards US17 down to Fleming Island recently, so no idea there.

 

Here are the tests from 8/1-8/3 that I took to show dan@sprint. As you can see, when the speed is good, it works fine. But just a mile down the road and coverage is hit or miss.

I did every test when I had 5 bars of service. I did not do any WiMax tests.

I'm not sure if they are upgrading these towers or not currently.

 

These tests are pretty much down I-10 west to I-295 south to Blanding Blvd and south towards Middleburg, this is down a major corridor, not a country rd.

The attached pic is from my back porch near Old Jennings/Blanding Blvd intersection which should have 3G and WiMax coverage.

Right now on 3G, I get 20kbps on one test, the next I get 200kbps in downtown Jacksonville.

Just my experience.

I guess it's a hit or miss. (you'll always find some places on any carrier that's slow.) but I've been all over the place last few days and here's the results from all of my tests.

actually 200kBs on 3g isn't that bad. You're talking about kBs' date=' not kbs, right?[/quote']

 

Actually 200kbps is pretty terrible for 3G and isn't even what Sprint is advertising. Don't let them rip you off. 44f74b3b.jpg-Taken from the Sprint site.

Edit: Just noticed the difference in capitalization, my b.

I'm visiting downtown Jacksonville for the day staying near the Jacksonville Landing and my 3G speeds haven't topped 200kBs.

I work downtown and I get about 0.8 mg before 8am. After that, it drops to about 400 kbps and doesn't go back up until about 7pm.

 

Believe it or not, that's an improvement from over a year ago.
