Verdict in Sprint vs. AT&T by Blue Octopus

Last night I met Ray, the CEO of Blue Octopus Matrix at a Silicon Vikings event where I spoke on a panel about the impact mobile is having on social as we know it.

We were chatting before the event started, and Ray whipped out two Android phones running a network sniffer app created by his company, which showed in a very striking visual manner the latency and speed differences between AT&T and Sprint LTE 4G networks.

The verdict: Sprint -- at least in Palo Alto CA that day -- was horrible.  But it's not in just one location that I've noticed this -- a friend with a Sprint iPhone5 and I did a SpeedTest when we were in the DC area last week.  I was getting 31mbps on my AT&T iPhone 5 and he was getting 0.3mbps on his Sprint iPhone5.

Sprint might be offering unlimited data.  But the pipe that serves that data appears to be about the size of a straw.
