Is Sprint's unlimited data plan a good idea?

Episode 938 (45:20)

Carlos from West Covina, CA

Carlos' contract is up and he's thinking of getting Sprint because they have unlimited data plans. Leo says the reason why Sprint has an unlimited data plan is that it's a crappy network. There's talk they're bringing more LTE 4G coverage, it may be worth it, but their WiMax 4G is terrible and 3G is slower now. AT&T is consistently rated the fastest, and since Carlos is with AT&T, it may be a good idea to just stick with them. They're certainly no worse than any other carrier.

Leo says that Sprint's competitive position is a good thing because it keeps pushing Verizon and AT&T. But it's just not the best network out there, especially for LTE.
