    HTC EVO 4G
    Now first things first you cannot compare my thread to anyone else because my speeds are 10 kilobytes when people complaining at 60kb/s and the funny thing is that would be all i want JUST 60! (3g speeds i dont have 4g where im at)

    so Download speeds have sucked ever since i bought it like 2 days after christmas and the weird thing is upload speed is 8x faster i just dont get it,
    ive called support and they updated the firmware and all that other stuff, but nope.
    thanks sprint..
    if you could help me fix this i would be so grateful:thinking:

    Have you tried it in other places?

    I get about 10kbps on my EVO at my house even though I have solid orange for 2 miles in every direction on the coverage map. Other places I get 3g and 4g just fine.

    Everywhere i go its always been a consistent .09 mb/s and upload going to like .60mb/s which makes no sense at all, i always have like 4-6 bars...
    no one here had this problem and fixed it dramatically?

    Well sounds like its not a location thing.. And from the sounds of it you updated your PRL and profile on the phone with sprint.

    You could try this:

    (Fix) Downloads for Music apps and faster 3G - xda-developers

    or a slight variant here:


    but like you said, those usually help with semi-slow speeds, not 10kbps..

    I was getting 10-15 kbps when I found the fix fyi

    There are still one or two towers I have issues with. Mainly the one near work. Calling sprint about that tomorrow
