  1. Let me tell you, I just bought this hotspot and it works great. Since is spark ready I'm getting between 22 Mbps and 38 Mbps with only one bar, when I have full bars I'm getting up to 66 Mbps. I'm so surprised, I never thought I could see these speeds, specially from Sprint.

  2. This is probably the beginning of the end of Clearwire.

    I wonder if they are going to offer a trade-in, trade-up for clear.com customers who are being closed down, like Nextel/Boost iDEN.

    Sprint seems to orphan a lot of their brands and technologies.

    I hope they know what they're doing...

  3. I noticed on my old 3g phones, like the Awe & Optimus Slider where it used to say "cdma evdo rev a", it now says eHRPD on my 4g phone. I'm looking in the settings>about>network...Does this mean I live in a Spark area? This appears to be the new 3g technology used on their LTE phones.

  4. spell check headline?

  5. Sprint has blazing fast 4g lte in lndianapolis ,Indiana 3.5 mbps upload and 1.5 mbps download and they advertise 25 mbps so 60 probably means 20 mbps.

  6. Sprint LTE serves 15 Mbps down and 5 up in our area, 22015.
