What 3g speeds do you guys average?! please :)

 

I am a long time AT&t customer, looking to switch to sprint when i preorder the iphone 5 tonight.

 

I tried sprint on the iphone 4s last year, my speeds were on average .2 mbps - .3 mbps. I couldnt use siri, send pics, spotify, etc.

 

I know LTE is on its way in the next couple of months (*crosses fingers) and i would looooove to have true unlimited LTE.. i just worry service will be spotty in my area/lte will take longer than expected to deploy.

 

In the mean time i would be stuck with the 3g.. so i'm considering going with verizon.

 

 

Thanks a lot

 

 

*edit*

 

really not just austin tx, anyone can post!

Just the other day, Sprint announced that austin tx, along with 100 other markets will have lte released before the end of 2012. With lte, you should get blazing fast speeds (anywhere from 5-30mbps down) compared to what you were experiencing on the iPhone 4s. Once Austin is done, the 3g network will be upgraded too and with sprints advanced 3g you should be getting speeds between 1-2 mbps. If you want my opinion, save money and switch to sprint. The network may not be perfect right when its launched, but it will progressively get better and for unlimited data, and the price, you can't beat it.

As soon as Sprint announced they were working on Austin, I did a speed test and am now averaging >700kbps. In fact, the last one I ran was 1.14 Mbps. This from 181 Kbps before. Big boost.

 

Still waiting for the day that I get my first LTE signal.
