Question Sprint EDVO/Data Transmission Speeds vs. AT&T

Please Login to Remove!

I have both the AT&T 8800 and the Sprint 8830 - am doing a side by side trial here in Los Angeles. As of now I do not see any significant speed differential between the two and sometimes AT&T is a tad faster with web pages. I have tried downloading files up to 800KB (the 1MB+ ones that come into e-mail do not come with the attachment) and Sprint is maybe one half second faster.

I have not tried a tethering test just yet and perhaps that is where there will be a difference?

From a general email perspective I have set up both my Yahoo and Mac accounts. There is up to a 10 minute differential in delivery times - sometimes Sprint ahead and sometimes AT&T.

Perhaps all of the speed success is dependent upon the area one lives or works.

Look forward to any comments and/or help.
