I recently got an HTC EVO from Sprint and the internet connecting is only

about 300kbit per second.  Several years ago I had several Microsoft

phones on Verizon and was getting 1 - 2 mbit.

I am fairly disappointed in Sprints data speeds and considering switching

to Verizon.  On Verizon I used to be able to stream 700mbps video while

driving.  Now with Sprint I can't even do a 128 kbps mp3 stream on Winamp.

 Pandora works but it streams at an extremely low quality not suitable for

anything other than using the phones built in speaker.

My questions are

Has Verizon's network slowed down due to increased use or can I still

expect about 1mbit?

Does anyone know if Sprint's 4G will be in Omaha anytime soon?
