Sprint 4G LTE test

Sprint trials 4G network that’s faster than Google Fiber

Report: T-Mobile and Sprint are finalizing plans for a merger

June 21st, 2017

T-Mobile and Sprint have been flirting with the notion of a merger like a pair of coy teenagers at a high-school dance, but we’re seeing signs that something is finally going to happen.

Fastest Mobile Networks 2017

Verizon barely edges out T-Mobile as the fastest network of 2017

June 20th, 2017

For years, the battle between mobile carriers wasn’t a very competitive one. Verizon and AT&T were at the top of the food chain while T-Mobile and Sprint tried to catch up.

T-Mobile vs Sprint

Sprint finally beat T-Mobile for something

May 30th, 2017

Network speed comparisons often aren’t kind to Sprint. Among the big four carriers, Sprint has a nasty habit of coming in stone dead last on average speed and coverage, while longtime rival T-Mobile has been competing with Verizon for the top spot. So you’d think that Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure would be glad to be …

T-Mobile Sprint merger

Get ready for all the wireless carriers to get worse

April 28th, 2017

The last couple months have seen a welcome change in the wireless industry. Instead of massively confusing bills and data caps, we’ve had prices slashed across the board and unlimited data plans for all. But thanks to the unending drive for consolidation and profits, the good times aren’t going to last. During the recent 600MHz …

Sprint vs Verizon

Sprint is axing its oldest and best deal

April 5th, 2017
