Anybody here using the I Phone 4S on Sprint yet?

I have been waiting to get an I Phone that I could use on Sprint, but lately I have been hearing some troubling stories about network speeds on Sprint for data. Today I did a Google search for information on that and got these two top results:
(Obviously, Sprint's Advertising)
iPhone 4S at Sprint™ - Blazing Speed w/ Unlimited Data.

Actually, I have been reading some of the forums for Sprint users and found them quite discouraging. All this time I have been thinking the crappy connection speeds and service I was getting on my HTC Touch Pro was either HTC's or Microsoft's fault. Now, I'm thinking that it's been Sprint's fault all along. I'm paying through the nose for all kinds of stuff that is essentially unusable (Sprint TV, Sprint internet connection, even E Mail is getting so bad as to be hard to use).
If this is the case, and if Sprint is really a year or two away from building out their network enough to hand all of this data traffic, the I Phone just may be the end of them. Of course, the Android phones they've been selling are surely overtaxing their network already.

I have the older hot spot connection (wifi). I am happy with the speeds. For the extra $26 I can use my desktop and laptop at will. Because of the heavy wood ceiling with foam roof it has to go in a window sill to get 4G. I tried AT&T and had to return it because it wouldn't work in my neighberhood.
