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 ?
