You are absolutely correct with your assumption on your data rates. 1X refers to the old 1xRTT which is the old 2G and 1XEV refers to the 1xEV-DO which is 3G.
Definitely call Sprint's tech support (keep your fingers crossed that you don't get an outsourced tech) and ask them what's going on. It could be a tower issue.
