Attention Sprint Pre and Pixi owners: your 3G speeds will improve, eventually

Sprint is just starting to roll out their LTE network, but if you're a webOS user that's really not of much concern to you. No LTE network really is. What concerns you is 3G, be it EVDO on Sprint and Verizon or HSPA+ on AT&T. If you're the owner of a Sprint Palm Pre or Sprint Palm Pixi, you're both a diehard for sticking with such aged hardware (even if you've Frankened to a Pre 2) and for dealing all these years with Sprint's last place 3G speeds.

But we've got good news! Sprint's 3G speeds are going to improve over the next several months as part of their Network Vision rollout. The overhaul of Sprint's network includes putting down some big thick fiber pipes to handle all of the data that will be streaming over their LTE network (which is notably faster than their barely-4G WiMAX network). Those new light-speed pipes will have the added benefit of boosting the capabilities of Sprint's already-present 3G network. And that's not including the upgrades that Sprint plans to implement for their 3G network; they know full well that it will be years before they have comprehensive LTE coverage in the US, and they've got a long way to go to catch up with AT&T, let alone Verizon (sorry, T-Mobile).

Sprint actually expects their Network Vision plan to be "largely completed by the end of 2013", so it could be a while before Sprint's upgrades have an impact on your 3G speeds. Here's hoping you don't have to hold out for another fifteen months before your Pre sees faster speeds, not that it'd be able to do much with them…
