If you have a twitter account, you're better off asking @SprintCare or calling them directly to see if your area has problems.

If it ain't broke, use a sledge hammer.

That should get you good data speeds. Maybe you're just on a busy node. Checking with Sprint is a good idea.

Check sensorly.com to see how good the coverage is at the exact location where you are in that zipcode.

Even though you may be under a 4G area (as advertised by Sprint), that doesn't mean that ALL towers are 4G LTE - found out after having the same issue at my location.
And call Sprint, and try to get a 'Network ticket' created - those folks know much more about what's going on than regular sprint customer care team.
