Sprint denies that the Apple iPhone 4S is to blame for sluggish 3G network speeds
Sprint says it is monitoring its 3G network and admits that it is looking into some complaints about slow data speeds on the Apple iPhone 4S. In a carefully worded response, the carrier said, "Speed tests represent a moment in time and are subject to many variables including weather, time of day, device, and proximity to a tower. Sprint will continue to monitor the feedback we are getting from our customers and will investigate and resolve any issues that may arise."
Gizmodo has run a speed test with over 11,000 people responding as of 12:30pm Tuesday. The test results measure the dowKload speed of the Apple iPhone 3GS, Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S over AT&T's network. The speeds of the latter two phones are measured over Verizon's pipeline and the speed of the Apple iPhone 4S is charted for Sprint users who responded to the test. The speed test results show that AT&T has the fastest average download speeds for Apple iPhone 4S users at 2.4Mbps. Verizon is second with an average of 1.8Mbps while Sprint's iPhone 4S average speed is 717Kbps. This Sprint results might be taking into account the problems that Sprint users have had with the carrier's 3G network since Friday.
