T-mobile Press Release

Claim 1: "T-Mobile’s latest-generation 4G LTE network is now nationwide,
reaching more than 200 million people in 233 metropolitan
areas across the United States."
Translation: Since there are more than 200 million people and 233 MSA's in the U.S., "Nationwide" means something between 'We've got LA and NYC covered, and maybe some markets in between' and what the other guys are rolling out. Check VZW's and AT&T's POPs and markets covered. T-Mobile's 'nationwide' LTE is far from nationwide by competitor comparison.
Claim 2: "T-Mobile’s 4G LTE ...
Not to be rude, but this is flat out false
False. T-Mobile is stretching the truth again. Many areas in Delaware are GPRS. THink about that...GPRS! Not even EDGE.
I won't even comment on the LTE coverage since all the big 4 stretch the truth on LTE availability. Verizon claims a huge network, but I saw 1X and 3G just as often as LTE in the 5th largest city in America.
LTE from AT&T
Edge from T-Mobile
LTE/3G from Sprint (Only get LTE when is a clear day)
Verizon it depends because its completely random from no service, 1X, 3G or LTE. Its very inconstant signal and quality from Verizon
My personal experience is that T-Mobile high speed coverage is spotty at best, even in large metropolitan areas like NYC. Integration with MetroPC...
T-Mobile's LTE spreading like a cancer...
