Whether or not the guy is an actor isn't the point. The results are the point.

I was thinking maybe they wanted the same phone so you now doubt of the results. T-Mobile has improved a ton in the last year. I use to have issues when I was in buildings but not now. I know is some places they don't have coverage but at least they have improved the network a lot faster then Sprint. Here in Columbus, Ohio Sprint LTE icon showed for a year and just now getting LTE speeds. From what a SU said on here.

I must have missed the part where they showed that, I guess I could take the paid actors word on it.

I dont doubt it, I'll be the first to admit Sprint speeds dont compare..at least for me. The commercial could have been orchestrated better to be more convincing.

I think Tom lives near me, if I'm not mistaken. The speeds here in Mount Sinai with Sprint were bad when I left 18 months ago.
