You wont notice any speed difference because of a frequency difference that small. The largest difference in speed is determined by how much of the 800/900 MHz Sprint will use for LTE. They need at least 10 MHz channels up and down to compete with VZW/AT&T, and a good backhaul link. Sprints 1900 MHz LTE will not be as quick because they are using 5X5 channels. Too little spectrum to keep up with the big boys.
