To all the At&t and Verizon Fans

Sprint tops AT&T and Verizon in 3G network speed test

The words grueling and Sprint were used, and this time they weren't used in the context of the wireless company's financial performance.

This time, as a matter of fact, the news was positive.

The No. 3 wireless company came in No. 1 in a "grueling" and "definitive" test of 3G networks operated by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.

Gadget blog Gizmodo tested the three wireless networks in eight cities around the U.S. Gizmodo testers in the cities used laptops and wireless modems to test download and upload speeds in three- to five-locations around each city.

As a non-Sprint fan, I can say this, I do use Sprint for wireless broadband. And have for like the past 20 months. Otherwise I use AT&T for my regular phones.
I'm not a fan, I'm a merc. All I see are potential employers. I want to see more wireless carriers...not less. If Sprint can spin this and use it as a means to keep their ship afloat...even better. They've been letting workers go like crazy in rec...

From AT&T: Consumers in those areas now have access to the wireless network with the best global coverage and to the nation's premier lineup of innovative wireless and wireline products and services

By the sound of it, it is already up and working....
