Sprint may have the slowest 3G in your area, and like all carriers has areas of limited or no coverage.
Here's what I get on 3G -
I traveled to another town this weekend and got 1x performance, rather slow, unlike above, about 1/10th that.
Sprint is engaged in a complete network overhaul and expansion, you can find details in our Sprint/4G forum - they're calling the buildout Network Vision.
Emailing them and specifically requesting Tier 3 service might be helpful for you.
