Sprint to push Nexus S 4G speed update on Monday

Sprint said Friday that it was rolling out a speed update for the Nexus S 4G. A patch will tackle complaints and improve speeds on the WiMAX network. The carrier said it had worked with both Google and Samsung to identify slowdown points.

The company claimed that the issue only affected a "small" number of customers, though the issues have been more widespread.

Other fixes bring improvement to how the Nexus S 4G handles Wi-Fi, boost audio quality, and add TTY (Teletype) support for those with poor hearing. Owners can start checking for the update on July 25 and, if they don't update manually, should get the patch automatically sometime within the next three weeks.
