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

    How many bars are you seeing on 4G?

    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.
