They claim that their ADSL has 8Mbps/1Mbps download/upload speed. Just want to know how reliable they are before switching to them.
You may have better luck w/ the Sprint BB Direct forum on dslreports.com. You can also abtain performance/reviews by zip code.

I have the Sprint ION xt2 plan.. here's what im getting:
Running tests. Please wait...
-- Starting download test... Done!
-- Starting upload test... Done!
Testing complete! Your results are:
- Download speed: 6.701 Mbits/sec ( 126 times faster than a 56k modem )
- Upload speed: 649.000 KBits/sec ( 19 times faster than a 56k modem )
- Server latency: 60.182 milliseconds
in laymans thats around 870K/s down and 100K/s up.
Its kinda buggy.. the adsl part of their service hasn't gone down at all, but the phone lines have had lots of problems. Also, all their customers' gateways are in Reston, VA, and pings aren't that great. Im in California, and I ping 82ms to a Californian T3, but it could be lower...
Then again, I am a major gamer, and I dont really notice any lag at all. Everything seems speedy to me.
