AT&T has not one, but two worthy competitors ready to battle it out for iPhone 4S supremacy, and this time the playing field is far more level than it’s ever been.
No longer is Verizon relegated to playing catchup, and did you hear? There’s a new kid in town named Sprint.
How does the iPhone 4S match up on America’s three biggest mobile providers in terms of sheer network speed? We’d thought you’d never ask. Tune in as we go head to head…to head.
Yep, we’ve got three iPhone 4S’, running on three different networks, exposed on video

The results speak for themselves. Sprint is by far the slowest of the three networks, with AT&T and Verizon having similar speed results with web browsing.
When considering flat out download speeds, though, AT&T ate the competition for lunch, as it theoretically has a much higher download ceiling to work with thanks to improvements with the iPhone 4S’ antenna system

This video is inaccurate. AT&T will have the fastest speed out of the 3, verizon being second and sprint third. The area this video was made clearly doesn't have good AT&T coverage... I got download speed of 5.0Mbps and upload of 1.5Mbps... He didn't even get to one for download on AT&T... This video only applies to people living in the area where this video was made. Nobody else.

hmmm... so say sprint overall is the worst speed. Does that mean they can't do the whole "surf while you talk" thing?

The only company that can do surf while u talk is AT&T. that has absolutely nothing to do with speed though. that is purely due to the different technology. even if AT&T had 1/4 of the speed that sprint had, they would still b the only company u can surf and talk on (aside from t-mobile, u can do it on t-mobile also but we aren't worried about them)
