About what I was getting with Sprint in Phoenix...also funny. So I paid the early termination fee, switched to AT&T for the One X and LTE, and now averaging 20-30 mps or faster. Couldn't be happier. My advice...switch to whatever works in your area.
Totally agree, it strickly has to do with where you are located demographically. What's fantastic in one area can we awful in another, Sprint is amazing is Corvallis OR, and T Mobile is awful, that's just the way it works out sometimes.
