    Hi I've got the sprint update on my non rooted phone. I'm in Portland Oregon, and it seems that my internet download speed is much slower than I expect. When I run a speed test I am coming up with .3mbps. Is that normal? What can I do to speed it up? Also, it pings to Los Angeles, seems funny to me. I primarily use my hero as a tether to my laptop and like to watch netflix. I have the all data plan with sprint.Thanks-

    Wow .3,I have to think that is some kind of error otherwise I don't know how you could stream netflix at that speed.I would call Sprint Tech support and explain the slow data speed but do not mention tether or Netflix.
    Are you saying 3.00 and are you referring to up or download speed? Is Ev showing at the by the signal meter? How many bars of signal strength?Are you in data roam unintentionally?
