Look, Ma, another balls ad! Sprint takes a shot at Verizon and T-Mobile with its own ballsy promo
Not to be outdone by Verizon and T-Mobile, Sprint also juggles some balls in its newest ad, trying to hammer home the notion that it offers a more rapid LTE network than those too, and asks subscribers less to use it, too. 

First it was Verizon's ad with a whole bunch of red balls sliding down a lane faster than anyone else's. T-Mobile took the shot, and returned it with a glut of magenta balls sliding down all the lanes in full force, claiming that Verizon omitted the fact how T-Mobile's LTE now covers almost as much people as Verizon's. 

Sprint didn't wait on those two to swing their balls around, and issued its own ad that has yellow round thingies sliding faster than the rest of the pack, then a sword slashes the scene to indicate that you can get 50% off your current subscription rate with Verizon, if you switch to Sprint. Take a look at all the ball juggling ad vids below, this is getting funnier by the day.

Tmo has the fastest but vzw does have the best coverage but they don't destroy every other carrier like their ad suggest.

I saw it the the other day. I gues they trying to figure out, who has the most balls.

This is a complete joke considering everyone knows Sprint has the slowest average speeds across the country. Independent tests have already shown that. Try harder, Sprint.

Depends on where you live. I live in an lte plus area and the speeds go up to 90Mbps down. That better than my T-mobile service which gives 4 if I'm lucky since Im on the edge of coverage

Of course it depends on where you live. That's why I said... "slowest average speeds across the country".

Well, according to the commercial and Nielsen which conducted tens of millions of speed tests.. Sprint has the fastest average LTE network. So no, everyone does not think that. I live in Las Vegas and I regularly get 80 - 130mbps down and it's been consistent.

You're correct. We don't think that. We know that. Sprint is the worst. There's a reason why no one is choosing them now. Deal with it.

So now they have LTE Plus? What happened to regular Lte being finished? What about spark? Can sprint simply finish one full network rather than continue to have poor network quality and cover it up with a "new" network name.

I believe LTE PLUS is one part a Spark rebrand and adding or re-purposing some additional frequencies. It is fast. I destroy all my friends in the speed test app!

Note; Sprint was smart enough to not the balls finish the speed race. So technically they didn't lie because there is only the claim of "temporary better speed" and 1/2 the price.

That doesn't make any sense.
