Take a Sneak Peak at Sprint’s LTE and Improved 3G Speed
Sprint customers have been listening to rumors of 4g LTE from as early as last Spring. The rumor turned into announcement just a few short months ago via Dan Hesse himself, announced for Q2 of 2012. Now, there are definite signs of life as customers can now see Sprint LTE being used in the wild.
Thanks to a sneak peak thread posted by XDA Senior Member mazook998, Sprint customers can check out some of the improved speeds customers can expect once Sprint’s new network goes live via speed tests on YouTube.
In the thread, you’ll find 2 links that go to YouTube videos. One for a couple of speed tests for the LTE and one for the speed tests on the “improved 3g”. The YouTube videos show over 40Mbps download and 5Mbps upload times for the LTE, with suggested videos showing 50Mbps. The “improved 3g” speed tests show 7.5Mbps download and 2.5Mbps upload speeds.
Whether these are real world speeds or just really good because of the lack of people on the network is anyone’s guess at this point, but with the announcement of Sprint LTE phones right around the corner, this could get really exciting for Sprint customers as LTE is no longer an entity in the distant future, it is right around the corner!
