    Explains why my service over the months for the past two-years has gone from great speeds(12d/3u) average to(2d/not even 1mbu)average, piss poor. This is on a mature 4G market.
  3. I thought I was the only one! Iv noticed a huge decrease in service quality in my area over the last few years. I literally no longer would get service at my home for more than a single phone call. I had to have them give me a signal booster just to get phone service. And I live 15min outside a major city! I never had problems previous years. In fact I had full signal and could get on the net without a problem.

    More people on the service is not an excuse! Invest in more towers to support them!

    Yeah, I've witnessed this myself as well with Virgin Mobile USA. In general, for as many pre-paid wireless customers as there are today, you'd think that Sprint/T-Mobile would seriously invest in (punctual) network upgrades/retention work.

    I was on VM until March of this year, and for $55/mo, I received 2.5GB of data and unlimited talk/text. The coverage was mediocre at best, but the speeds weren't bad.

    AT&T offers a $60/mo no-contact plan with 2.5GB of data & unlimited talk and text, so that's the best plan I've found thus far for the price. Verizon offers a similar plan, but for $10/mo more.
