This is incorrect. The only thing confusing about this talent is that is DOES NOT stack with sprint.

Sprint
Instant
Increase movement speed by 35% while NOT IN combat.

This means that while you are IN COMBAT, sprint does not apply, and the 15% infiltrator increase in movement speed takes over. While you are out of combat, you can use sprint, and the 15% infiltrator increase in movement speed is null and void. This essentially means your movement speed with this talent will look like this:

In combat unstealthed = 115% (would have been 100% without infiltrator)

In combat stealthed = 100% (would have been 85% without infiltrator)

Out of combat unstealthed = 135% (using sprint, would have remained the same without infiltrator)

Out of combat stealthed = 120% (using sprint, would have remained the same without infiltrator)

You can see why there is confusion. When players are testing this talent out of combat with buddies who do not have infiltrator they will all run the same speed. This is a great talent for those looking to pick up a speed boost in combat, to increase the mobility of healing medics, or just to get to a mob faster for dps medics.

I can confirm that this Skill does indeed increase movement speed while stealthed. Every Operative (or Scoundrel) should pick up this Skill if they plan to PvP.

As far as I can tell, this talent does NOT increase your movement speed. It removes the movement speed penalty for going stealth by 5% per point. At max rank, you suffer no movement speed penalty while stealthed, but gain no increased movement speed bonus while unstealthed.
Can anyone else confirm this?

just for reference try reading the ability but ill clarify a couple things.

1: this ability increases movement speed by 15% so heres how it works:

normal movement speed = 100%
this talent = 115% (does not stack with sprint)
stealthed reduces movement speed to 85% of normal meaning this:
115% * .85 (aka 85% of normal movement speed) means this brings it to:
115 *.85 = 97.75% normal movement speed.
also if you are stealthed you are not in combat aka no use for that statistic.

also here's another thing that goes with the above claim:
stealthed means using sprint actively.
sprint speed = +35% of normal movement speed
stealthed = 85% of normal movement speed after modifiers
normal movement speed = 115%
normal movement speed with sprint = 135%
normal movement speed with sprint stealthed = 85% of 135% = 135 * .85 = 114.75% normal movement speed aka looks like 115% when stealthed
