Every cell tower is different, every region is different, good 
performance in one region on one carrier, maybe the exact opposite in 
another region on that same carrier. That's quite a bit of data 
(assuming 1-2mbps...not sure what "digit megs" are) you're trying push 
through a cell network especially 3G. Is it possible your Verizon 
testing is on Verizon's 4G network while Sprint's is 3G?
