Pocketables reader Joe recently wrote in to ask how many of you have made the jump from Sprint to one of the Big Two – Verizon or AT&T. Like many readers who have stuck with us since the days of the original HTC EVO 4G, he’s experiencing terrible data speeds that just don’t seem to get better, even after LTE upgrades.
Here’s his question, in its entirety:
I hate Verizon and AT&T. Every time I have ever needed to call Sprint for anything, I have always been pleasantly surprised at the service I’ve received. That being said, I live in Los Angeles, where the 4G LTE rollout has officially launched. The service is incredibly spotty.
I understand more towers are being upgraded, but the 3G is pretty much unusable. I am curious to know how many Pocketables community members have made the switch to AT&T or Verizon. Is the cost, which is probably more per month, worth the headache of dealing with them?
I like the flexibility of Sprint, and the unlimited data, although I always fluctuate in the 2 – 2.5GB/month range. I wonder if you’d throw it out there for feedback.
So, dear readers, it’s time for you to step up to the plate and offer him some advice. If you’ve made the jump yourself, what have your experiences been like? Have you been pleased with the results, or do you long for Sprint once more?
Sound off below – and happy weekend!
