Considering T Mobile

I am currently a Sprint customer but I'm considering T Mobile. They offer employees where I work a very generous discount plus they already have 4G where I live. Any feedback on coverage as well as the WiFi calling to help with coverage in your home would be greatly appreciated. I live in Greenville, SC.

remember its not 4G its hyped up 3G and in many test has been shown slower than both LTE and Wimax. Sprint has signed a deal with light squared and might end up with LTE. Also remember you could end up an AT&T customer while still in contract.

AT&T isn't that bad. Had them before. The deal with lightsquared is up in the due to some kind of gps interference issue. It may be 2015 before I see LTE or WiMax with Sprint. FYI, T-mo beat Sprint in a recent speed test.

While it may have been addressed I doubt we will see Sprint roll out anything fast. Their venture with clearwire has been slow as is everything Sprint does.

Sprint was the 1st in many areas, they are no slower than the market. Have faith, they rank way ahead both in network and customer service than tmobile (soon to be AT&T who is so far behind its laughable) Laughing

It's the cool thing to say man. I'm getting 3000kbps on an iPhone 3GS with a speedtest. I wouldn't call that kind of speed on a 3G phone to be 'behind.'

I heard T-Mo's HSPA+ 42 can produce real world speeds in the 10-15mbps range. All while ATT's idea of HSPA+ is a measly 14mbps, rather than real HSPA+, 21, and forwards to 42.

Since when does ATT's network put out 14mbps??? I'm on Vzn's LTE btw.

Over-hyped 3G or not, the HSPA+ has the distinction of not just helping the phones labeled as '4G,' but their "lesser" 3G brothers as well. So that's something to keep in mind too, you don't have to spring for a shiny 4G phone with T-Mobile or AT&T to get faster speeds, and who needs that much speed anyway (besides jay)?
