Sprint has been named as the most reliable 3G network in a recent PC World network shootout. PC World tested networks in March and April of this year in 13 major markets across the country including Boston, Baltimore, New York, Orlando, Denver, Chicago, San Francisco, New Orleans, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, and San Jose.

The networks tested belonged to Sprint, Verizon, and AT&T. PC world reports that Sprint bested AT&T for reliability and that Sprint was more reliable than Verizon in the tested areas. A strong connection was available 90.5% of the time.

I would like to see this sort of test performed for areas outside of major markets. The real challenge for a network isn’t inside major cities, but in rural areas. There are large portions of rural America where you can’t get a signal.
