What happens when you add thousands of data-hungry iPhone 4S devices to America’s slowest 3G network? Surprise! It gets slower. Many Sprint customers are experiencing slower-than-normal 3G speeds after the iPhone 4S joined the Now Network, and they are not happy about it. A quick scan of a comment thread on reddit shows many users are only seeing download speeds of 200-500 Kbps, compared to normal download speeds of 1 Mbps.
If you have an Android phone on Sprint, we encourage you to download the Speedtest.net app and share your results. Have you seen decreased download speeds during the last week since the iPhone launch? Be sure to include your location and let us know in the comments below.
