Sprint Tweaks Network in Wake of iPhone Data Issues
Aside from producing Sprint’s most successful retail day in company history, the iPhone has also made headlines for the Now Network that have been less than flattering. Almost as soon as Apple’s popular fruit phone flew off of retail shelves, reports quickly began to spread of Sprint customers experiencing less than stellar data speeds. Without a doubt, Sprint’s network has recently been plagued with network issues, but the iPhone’s slowness is said to have been an outside issue.
Cnet reports that Sprint has recently rolled out a wave of network enhancements designed to improve user data speeds. Using a combination of customer feedback and internal research Sprint claims they were able to target the affected areas. Vice president of product development Fared Adib stated “Sprint continues to monitor device and network performance to ensure that customers get the performance they expect from our products.”
If you’re an existing Sprint customer that made the switch to the iPhone and saw a 3G performance decrease, we wanna hear from you. Let us know if you’ve seen an actual improvement or if the Now Network is feeling more like the Ow Network. We await your comments below.
