I use four android apps for streaming music: Radio One, Iheartradio, TuneIn Radio, and JazzRadio.com apps. Out of the four apps the JazzRadio.com app seems to work the best as far as keeping a signal consistently. My occupation is a pickup/delivery driver, so I'm in and out of buildings 10-12 hours a day. I've been able to stream music deep inside quite a few buildings since I been listening to the Jazz radio app, and evenbeing able to receive signal in lower levels of buildings such as hospitals. My data has increased from under a GB, and now I'm approaching 3GB of data usage.

 

So my question is that of the discussion topic: Is it the android app or has there been improvement made to Sprint's network that's allowing me to keep a consistent signal to stream all the data I'm using now ? One other point I would like to make is I work in an area that's two counties from where I live, approximately 30-40 miles from the city I have in, which is the largest city in the state. The population in these cities, towns, and villages I work in are as high as 30,000 ppl, all the way down to one of those unincorporated town that have very few ppl living there. I only mentioned this bcuz you know as well as I do, the farther away you get from a metropolitan city, the number of Sprint towers in those areas decrease in numbers.

 

Anyways, the app or the network, or both ? What are your thought on this ?

Some of those apps use compression and can stream at speeds as low as 28k. So it doesn't take much of a signal to keep those things going. I use TuneIn Radio alot myself. And many of the stations are configurable to where you can lower the streaming down from 128k, to 90k, 48k or even 28k. When I am going into a 1x area. I will change the settings down to 48k. There is a slight change in audio quality. But i Mostly listen to talk radio, so I don't care much.
