    As was said earlier, T-mobile and Sprint internet are COMPLETELY different. T-mobile, which is a GSM cellular service, uses GPRS to connect to the internet (roughly dial-up speeds). It does fluctuate. I have T-mobile with a Motorola V300, Sometimes I connect at 44KBPS and then sometimes I connect at 80KBPS. I like this because it is only $20/month, and it doesn't use my plan minutes.

    Sprint, which is a CDMA provider (same as Verizon WIreless, which I also have), uses 1XRTT to connect, which roughly gives you 140-230KBPS, which is reletivley close to a slow DSL service. The thing I hate about 1XRTT services (At least with Verizon), Even though the connection is WAY faster, it uses my plan minutes, so I usually only use it oin nights/weekends.

    Hope this clears things up.
