It's looking that way. FWIW I've been pretty impressed with my sprint service lately. (aside from today of course)

I really hope Sprint wont disappoint me especially when I am coming from Verizon. I will be switching over to Sprint on Monday as my contract with Verizon iPhone 5 expires.

The family plan is gonna save me over 50% of my phone bill coming from Verizon so it was a no brainer. Plus Sprint is going to give me $239 for my Verizon iPhone 5

I did my research - the area I live in Alexandria and where I work at is all fully covered with LTE support so I think I should be good

Good luck. Alexandria might be OK. But I can tell you Sprint service in Bmore SUCKED. To the point that I paid more for Verizon. Tired of all the dropped calls, missed calls, and texts that wouldn't send.


Then again... That's just me.

On the internet... Everyone is an expert.

Bro...Sprint is horrific. I was with Sprint for 12 years and finally just took a leap of faith and went over to T-Mobile. Boy I was upset after seeing just how much better T-mobile was.

Sprint has the slowest speeds out of all carriers. Even the 4g is terrible.

Check this out...PCMag did a huge test this year.

Been with TMobile since they were Omnipoint nearly 20 years ago.
Always been pleased.
Tmobile is perfectly acceptable so long as you live and generally stay within 30-40 miles of a major metro a majority of the time. If not, Tmobile is not the service provider you want to use.

The tradeoff for their low prices is a network bandwidth that doesn't penetrate structures as easily as A or V's, and of course, much less LTE coverage.

I have rotated through every provider thrice over. I just had to switch back to Verizon due to my company. I have to say that ATT had the best service bar none. Had sprint multiple times due to different companies and my mom uses it now. It's still not good. Verizon is one step up but still sucks as bad as I remembered they did. Their 4GLTE speeds are much slower than ATTs in NY/Chicago/NOVA and suburbs. You get reception for phone calls so that's not bad but even if your phone is showing full bars you'll get choppy data. I think it's just a bandwidth issue with them. T-mobile I can't comment on much since I had them mid 90s to early 2000 and they were ok when data was not an issue.

Their 'next gen' tech (note 4 is the only that supports it right now) will actually be one of the better signals that penetrate walls.
