Sprint said to be raising 4G upload speed cap on phones to 1.5 Mbps
A leaked screen shot of internal Sprint communication shows that on June 10th, the nation's third largest carrier plans on increasing its 4G upload speed cap on single and dual mode devices by 50% to 1.5Mbps. While customers might notice faster uplink speeds after the increase, it doesn't guarantee that the 1.5Mbps will be available at all times and under all conditions.

Sprint customers won't have to do anything to get the faster speed cap as the change will be "network based". In addition, the carrier does not plan on spreading the word to customers about the increase in the speed cap. Only 4G phones will be affected as Sprint's 4G modems will still be limited to a 1.0 Mbps speed cap.
