Sprint today said it has deployed LTE Advanced technology nationwide, providing access to more consumers while also doubling average speeds on its 4G network. Sprint said it achieved these network gains through both its own Next-Gen Network investment as well as rehashed roaming agreements. Consumers can take advantage of several Sprint offers to make use of the improved network. For a limited time, customers who switch to Sprint and subscribe to the Unlimited Basic plan can get three lines for $24 per month, with the fourth and fifth lines for free. After January 2020, those rates will go up to $60 per month for the first line, $40 per month for the second line, and $20 per month for lines three through five. Subscribers to this plan will see video streams capped at 480p, music streams capped at 500 Kbps, gaming streams capped at 2 Mbps, and throttling when the network is congested. Moving forward, existing subscribers to Sprint's Unlimited Plus plan will have access to 50 GB of mobile hotspot data per month and subscribers to Sprint's Unlimited Premium plan will have access to 100 GB of mobile hotspot data per month — all at no extra cost. Sprint says it will unveil more offers over the months to come.

Sprint - The Best 3G Network

As a longtime Sprint subscriber (since 2003), I give my honest opinion of their network: it’s dependable, widespread, and the best overall value among the Big Four—if you’re OK with 3G network and speeds. As great as Sprint’s basic network is, their LTE is spotty and very slow at times.

In my case, I simply disabled LTE on my phone. I figured unlimited, reliable, 3G with great coverage for what I pay beats more expensive, limited data on a faster network.
