Early T-Mobile LTE Sightings Continue In Oklahoma City, Dallas And Miami

Screen Shot 2013-05-29 at 3.53.37 PM

While news has been a little slow in the last few days, T-Mobile is still hard at work building out their LTE network to make their 100 million POPs before the end of Summer goal. With that, another round of LTE sightings has popped up in and around Oklahoma City; Dallas, Texas and some scattered sightings in Miami, Florida.

As per our usual warning, these sightings are unofficial and represent what we believe is T-Mobile’s “fine tuning” and “testing” stage prior to launch. However, all three of these markets are listed as set to launch before the end of June so there’s a good indicator we aren’t far off from an official launch. So I wouldn’t jump too far ahead and assume that a LTE sighting means an entire market is live.

Let’s recap the list we have for May and June LTE market launches:

  • Atlanta and Sandy Springs, Marietta, San Antonio
  • Austin and Round Rock, San Marcos (May Launch)
  • Part of the Carolinas – Charlotte, Rock Hill
  • Chicago and Joliet, Naperville
  • Cincinnati and Dayton
  • Cleveland
  • Connecticut – Bridgeport, Stamford, Norwalk
  • Columbus and Mentor
  • Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington
  • Denver and Aurora, Broomfield
  • Detroit and Warren
  • Honolulu and Maui (May Launch)
  • Long Island, New York and New Jersey – specific areas unknown
  • Los Angeles and Pasadena, West Covina, West LA, Metro LA, Burbank, Beverly Hills
  • Oklahoma City
  • Orlando
  • Miami and Fort Lauderdale
  • Minneapolis and St Paul, Bloomington (May Launch)
  • New England – Boston, Cambridge
  • Philadelphia and Camden, Wilmington (May Launch)
  • Sacramento and Arden, Arcade, Roseville, Fresno
  • San Diego and Carlsbad, San Marcos
  • San Francisco and Oakland
  • Seattle and Tacoma, Bellevue
  • Tampa
  • Tulsa – (May Launch)
  • Phoenix and Tucson (May Launch)

  • Rome Bond

    Sacramento, CA and Roseville, CA also starting to get LTE.

    • JayInCA

      Going from Sacramento to SoCal, I was on LTE in Stockton on i-5 going south, and coming back from SoCal on 99 in Modesto and Stockton. I can’t wait for LTE in downtown and midtown Sac!

    • eddydrizzle

      What parts of Sacramento? I live in South Sac and I haven’t seen any LTE yet.

      • Rome Bond

        Fair Oaks and Manzanita, I got 36 Mbps there.

        • eddydrizzle

          Dang, that’s good. Too bad it’s more towards Carmichael.

  • tomnewtn

    The techs are installing all the new LTE gear in the station next to my office in Tacoma, Wa. as I write this. Looks like a complete rebuild and major undertaking too.

    • J-Hop2o6

      That’s good to hear. I’m having HSPA+ speed issues in the SW Seattle area. So hopefully that just means that they’re upgrading the towers in my area. *Crosses fingers*

      • That’s exactly what it means! Usually my HSPA+42 speeds are as regular as they come, but as soon as they started working on the LTE here and turning it on and off I’ve noticed a bit of a drop off. I just smiled knowing it’s because of LTE work. : )

      • HangmanSwingset

        I had the same problem when I was in the International district, on both 1900 MHz (myself) and AWS (girlfriend’s phone).

  • Milad

    Wow , very impressive , my Verizon iPhone 5 get 11 to 13 Mbps Down Max … Coming back to Tmo … :)

  • riDIRKulous

    Very nice !!

  • TMOPhilly

    Center City Philadelphia already has some LTE sightings. We go live tomorrow.

    • Aurizen

      your so knowledgeable about these things! how do you know this lol. if you got connections can you hook up the west Philadelphia 19104 area?

    • Michael Jordan

      yeah right. you playing games?

  • jaycalderwood

    I have seen it in parts of Old City and South West Philly

    • Roger Sales

      I was in south philly a week ago and while I didn’t see LTE, their HSPA+ is beastly. Completely unrecognizable from the crappy time I had using it the year before.

      • jaycalderwood

        I didn’t have time to test the speeds as I was driving to our office but on parts of 4th street I had LTE (well at least that’s what my phone said). It was flipping between 4g and LTE.

  • Lagurl

    lte in east los Angeles (which is an average size city for those that dont know) is solid much better than hspa 42 and offers a way better upload speed in the 10-12 up range , till u get to montebello then u switch to hspa which still offers great down load speed but CRAPPY upload speed I cant ever get more than 1mbp up -_-

  • Gdm Laz

    I sent in mines I could vouch I had some early sightings in Miami downloading at over 20mb and uploading at 9mb + is gone now but can’t wait till is back for good

  • Scott ‘Scooter’ Meier

    i just started getting an LTE signal earlier today in Dayton, Woo Hoo

    • mighty_fine_fricassee

      I’m getting LTE too, @scottscootermeier:disqus, what phone do you have? I have the Note II and the LTE connection seems to be playing havoc with my GPS.

      • Scott ‘Scooter’ Meier


      • Scott ‘Scooter’ Meier

        I have a Galaxy S4 not problems other than the signal is weaker now some places im lucky to get an EDGE signal

  • A$AP Chris

    Anyone see anything in the Austin/San Marcos area?

    • timbay23

      Not me bro. I live in Austin and I haven’t seen any LTE anywhere. I called and the operator said that there’s an LTE tower by my house on but in my house and when I go there I don’t get it. Hopefully very soon

      • cnoTe4

        Off 183 I’ve seen it. It’s mapped on sensorly.

  • Khaled Al Fahad

    I started to get lte signal in dayton ohio, download speed reached 15 mgps at noon

  • PDX

    When Portland, OR getting LTE?

    • J-Hop2o6

      After Seattle/Bellevue/Tacoma. You know why ;)

    • Roger Sales

      It hasn’t been announced, but I doubt it’ll be too long. I would be shocked if it’s not there by December given its size, but I would guesstimate end of summer/early fall. Unlike Sprint which had really random LTE lightups, every area T-Mobile has rolled out LTE officially or unofficially has been a fairly large metro area.

  • art

    I was at a pub in North Seattle and there were techs on the tower . . .

    I chatted them up and sure enough they were installing TMO LTE gear.
    They said it should be done within the next few weeks.

    • J-Hop2o6

      That’s good to hear. I’m having HSPA+ speed issues in the SW Seattle
      area. So hopefully that just means that they’re upgrading the towers in
      my area. *Crosses fingers*

    • Roger Sales

      I would say I’m surprised Seattle wasn’t a launch market given its the area where T-Mobile makes their home base. Given these facts, I knew Seattle would be up by June for sure.

  • DYT Mo

    Dayton was spotty yesterday but looks blanketed and functional today. 15-25 down by the Greene. Solid LTE up and down 675

    • Roger Sales

      I urge you to to download and run sensorly and collect data for the area. The more people doing this across the US for T-Mobile’s LTE network, the less we have to depend on the rumor mill.

    • sidekicker89

      Ahh I’m in Fairborn! Still on HSPA+ though. I just got the HTC One yesterday. What phone are you using? :)

      • DYT Mo

        Using the iPhone 5. Came back to town this evening and can’t seem to get an LTE signal. Looks like its still in a testing phase but hey, it’s progress :)

        And I will definitely use sensorly to collect data, thanks for the tip, Roger

  • I still keep seeing it off and on everyday in the Detroit Metro area suburbs. It never stays on very long, but its happening more and more than before. 0: D

    • anonymous

      I live in the same area and have yet to see it on my s4. Where is your exact location?

    • Guest

      Testing phase. T-Mobile won’t announce it as a live market until the build-out is mostly complete and its met their internal standards. But hey, you’re lucky. I’d love to mess around with a beta LTE network :(

  • steve1026

    I doubt where I live will get it anytime soon :( Wichita is a small city.

    • Roger Sales

      200M seems like a small number, but its two thirds of the US. If T-Mobile can meet their timeline I wouldn’t doubt you’d have at least some LTE service by the end of the year.

      • steve1026

        I sure hope so. I got a taste of LTE in KC and DC.

  • lt

    Okc here and as of today 4g lte is active on my galaxy s4..speeds up entire experience which is great. My only concern is I just got this phone because the last(htc sensation) wouldn’t get signal inside work or inside home. Since having galaxy s4 have had 3-4 bars on 4g whether at work or home. Since 4g lte just 0-1 I seem to still be getting my texts however this was a huge problem with me not getting them before!

    • TechHog

      Signal should improve after the official launch. My Note 2 has the same issue here in NYC.

  • Rostislav Martsenyak

    I’ve seen LTE in Bellevue did test and got 17 up and 51 down. And have seen LTE in Downtown Tacoma a week ago but they turned it off now.

    • Rostislav Martsenyak

      Here is the site I posted my screen shot on if anyone doesn’t believe me, it’s about halfway throught the page


    • J-Hop2o6

      Nice to hear. I haven’t caught any in the W/SW/S Seattle areas yet. Hopefully you have a screen shot of that insane Bellevue/Seattle speed and send it to David to put up in his next LTE post =)

  • Aurizen

    hows the building penetration? better than the hspa+?

    • taron19119

      Lte and hspa+ has nothing to do with building penetration the bands has everything to do with it the higher the band the harder it is to penetrate buildings the lower the bands the better the penetrarte is T-Mobile is still useing 1700/2100 aws band 4 so lte will be the same as hspa+

      • Andrade

        Not true. I live in Chicago at home I used to get 2mb with hspa+ and with LTE I get 10mb+ 2bars signal.

        • taron19119

          It is u did not ask how was speed u ask how is building penetration building penetration is different then speed if you want to know about speed then yeah you well get better speed

      • Zacamandapio

        I said the same thing two weeks ago and I was corrected. But you are right about the bands.

  • yolanda

    does anyone kno if Lte will be better for signal in buildings? My experience with T-Mobile was that hspa signal would disappear in most building s i went in LA and edge would kick in for some reason edge always came tru which at least worked to call sometimes data didnt work at all on edge ony calls. So does anyone know if lte will be bette?

    • Roger Sales

      I don’t know about LTE’s in building stability, but I can tell you my in-building coverage in my area which is in pre-LTE stages has affected my coverage in my 50-50 areas. (For example, my buildings elevator I used to sometimes maintain a bar or two of Edge or HSPA, now I never get bars. In my basement where I would have a reliable 2 out of 4 bars of HSPA I now only get 3 bars of EDGE, probably because of the diverted resources. Its not a major inconvenience but it is noticeable to people like me who are phone addicts.
      The one thing I know about LTE is that when you DO get LTE service, bars won’t be as big a factor because of LTE’s improved latency and the fact that its an uncrowded network. (1 bar of LTE is probably going to be more useful than 3 bars of 3G, etc). In certain area’s even T-Mobiles HSPA+ 42 with full bars is almost completely useless(Newport Mall in Jersey City, for example. Journal Square is another that comes to mind.)

  • superg05

    anyone in dallas detect or see LTE cause i haven’t i know on sensorly there was one spot that was detected ages ago

    • Dj Chea

      in Frisco and in Mckinney I’ve seen LTE one bar pop up i didnt have time to do a speed test though

    • Sok

      Yesterday i had LTE in my area (Carrollton) from 3pm to 6pm but after that it didn’t work anymore

  • Roger Sales

    OKC is the only really “new” sighting. According to Sensorly, there are cell sites active in Austin, TX, Dayton, OH, Tucson, AZ, and Spokane, WA.

    It also seems like the build-out of the Bay Area, Los Angeles area, and NYC(random cites activated outside the direct metro like Long Island, etc) have been extremely accelerated compared to what they were a week or two ago.

    For the record, I’m directly across the river from Manhattan in New Jersey and no cell sites have been activated here(Park Avenue, Boulevard east, etc).

    • Rostislav Martsenyak

      Just checked sensorly and and only found one cite with LTE in Spokane wa right in city center. I surprised david still hasn’t posted Seattle wa

      • Roger Sales

        One site that’s been recorded by a user – they could’ve easily just had the app on briefly. Either way, activating one site at this point usually means that more are on their way.

      • Adam Pranda

        I was just in Spokane at the airport. LTE shows up but you can’t connect to it.

  • Ben

    A coworker and I had lte up and running Friday night from
    Midway Airport in Chicago

  • Green

    I got lte signal in Santa barba ca Idk if anyone in the area did too

    • TheVorlon

      Where in Santa Barbara?

      • Green

        By franklin school

    • Herbert Portillo

      I live downtown right off of state Street, I’ve got lte too.

      • green

        i did some speed tests and it was pretty fast …when i left the franklin school area i just got 4G not 4Glte idk if its just spots for now maybe in the morning we will get full lte coverage

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Is T Mobile $70 plan really Unlimited? Then what is this that shows on my account. Has anyone else seen it?


    Used: 5 GB / Unlimited on our network

    Up to 9765.6 GB high-speed data View plan

    • kev2684

      try hitting 9.5 TB of data to see if it throttles after.

      • Aurizen

        who hits that much of data on a phone?!?!

        • Roger Sales

          I’m a power user and the most i’ve gotten to is nearly 100 Gigs….and thats streaming netflix like 8 hours a day every day. Most people will never go past 15-20 in a bill cycle.

        • Aurizen

          oh yeah that makes sense.

        • Roger Sales

          The way I see it, LTE is a way of making videocalling actually a viable option in most locations because of the lower ping. I’ve never been able to have a decent videocallling session on HSPA+ without hanging, etc.

        • Aurizen

          yeah very true, my HSPA+ is terrible, I use wifi to video call. which is similar to LTE speeds maybe a bit better.

        • TheVorlon

          Maybe your parents should stop paying your bill and you can get a job instead of watching Netflix all day.

        • Roger Sales

          I’m a college student on the dean’s list and I pay my own cellphone bill, but thanks for the concern over my life.

        • kalel33

          I’ve seen accounts with 3G device only hit 57GB of data in one month. You can watch one Netflix movie in HD and use 4GB.

        • Roger Sales

          I’ve clocked it….an hours worth of streaming is about 300MB give or take. Makes me feel bad for people on AT&T and Verizon and not grandfathered, because it is really easy to hit 5GB now, even though most people in the US are using under 2.. I mean, even Pandora can use a gig in a month just casually listening. With smartphones the issue is that nearly everything you do consumes data now, and they add up.

        • Aiden Alexander cruz

          It’s people like you that fk it up for the rest of us that actually have lives and don’t stream Netflix all day.
          Damn j wish I had unlimited, but I wouldn’t abuse it either. I’m a student also and I have far better things to be doing that burning my sweet time watching 8 hours of Netflix daily.

      • JaswinderSinghJammu

        Thanks for all the input. I am already at 5 GB in about a week.

    • Roger Sales

      It is. I use way over 10GB a month and while sometimes I hit some roadbumps, its definitely nowhere near EDGE speeds since I can stream netflix fine.

    • Alex Zapata

      Yes, it is very much unlimited. I’ve broken 100GB and average just over 50GB per month. No throttling so far.


  • TBN27

    Brooklyn and Queens NYC Are lit up with LTE.

    • Roger Sales

      They do look pretty well filled out…..Manhattan and the Bronx didn’t quite get as much early LTE love.

  • RobotChupacabra

    LTE been on with no issues all day in Brooklyn.

  • briankh

    Today I drove from the far south side of OKC to the far north side (that’s a long drive for those not familiar) and we had LTE the whole way. Over the last few days I haven’t seen anywhere in OKC without LTE.

  • Aurizen

    I dropped to E a few min in philadelphia, hopefully tomorrow I’ll see LTE in west philadelphia tomorrow.

    • samsavoy

      I was there two weeks ago, dropped to EDGE a few times. Also I had full GPRS at the airport. ehhhhhh

      • defiantbeast

        I was in Mayfair and Girard northern liberties section and I was getting LTE speeds of 32mbps! ! ! I hope LTE launches officially soon!

        • defiantbeast

          Actually typed that in backwards sorry. It was actually 23Mbps

  • AnthonyRyan89

    I wonder how it is in Fort Lauderdale and Miami area .

    • Roger Sales

      Just a small patch of Miami. It’s not that vast yet.

      • AnthonyRyan89

        Well its a start.

      • Marcelo_L

        okay Roger and where exactly is that small patch

        • Roger Sales

          Check sensorly, they have that “Smallpatch” mapped out. I’m not from Miami, I was just trying to be helpful.

  • REVS


  • Guest_Nerd1

    LTE is launched for testing. At the time, T-Mo is drive testing and preparing for launch in various markets. A specific SIM class is required to be able to access it, therefore typically the network is Access Barred for customers. Occasionally, during testing it may get set to allow customers. Hence your sightings. The main improvement with LTE is latency and your Uplink speed. Also, it will be unloaded (until more LTE handsets are released it too will experience lesser speed). And yes, I know. Hang tight, when it’s ready you’ll see it. It is being prepared properly, not half-@ssed like with Sprint.

    • Chris

      Can you elaborate on the difference between Sprint and T-Mobile’s deployment?

      • Rostislav Martsenyak

        Tmobile is doing the right thing and starting with big cities and then small cities. Sprint is starting with small cities because they can deploy LTE faster and cheaper in small cities and they will be able to say that they got more cities with LTE

        • Trevnerdio

          …not to mention they lack the necessary spectrum for an LTE network. Their speeds are mighty slow.

    • RobotChupacabra

      Hey, they can test here in Brooklyn all they want. I’ve had LTE all day with 25-30 Mbps down and 8-10 up.

  • jimmiekain

    Anybody hear anything about Riverside / San Bernardino in California?

    • Bigjavar101

      I’m originally from that area, and I was at Ontario Airport yesterday and I got 2 bars of LTE. It kept switching back and forth between LTE and HSPA+ though…

  • F3AR

    I’m in Seaside , CA which is part of the Monterey Peninsula (About an hr south of San Jose) just got LTE on my phone. Well just a couple of bars and it goes in an out. I’m new around here so I don’t know how to post a pic or send it to the editors. Definitely excited because I tested it out in San Jose and things were speedy and I came from Verizon so it was nice to see things fly.

    • Bigjavar101

      I live in seaside too! CSUMB area to be exact and I’ve seen t-mobile LTE on my friends Iphone 5 and my Note II !! I speedtested it and was only getting 20 mbps down and about 7 up.. I’ve seen faster speeds on HSPA+ with about 25 mbps down and 3 mbps up!

      • Diego A. Osegueda

        I’m in Salinas, CA and I’ve been getting an LTE signal (but normal HSPA+ speeds) on my Note 2 all day. I actually rebooted my phone when I first noticed because I thought it was a glitch, considering that this area wasn’t on any official/unofficial list of upcoming LTE rollouts. I’m very eager to get San Jose LTE speeds of 40mbps down and 25 mbps here that I got when I visited last month.

        • Bigjavar101

          I was in Salinas today at In & Out Burger and noticed LTE there too.. T-mobile is definitely working towards that goal of covering 100 million people by the end of summer!

        • F3AR

          Yea its nice to start seeing it around here since it hasn’t shown up on any list. With my work I am driving all over the 831 area so I did get to see it in different areas today. Does seems like the speeds aren’t up there yet but its a start

  • sushimane

    its kinda crazy to see Florida with only 10 mbps. i live in spartanburg sc and only have access to hspa+42 and im getting around 15-17 mbps haha

  • Matt

    Spotting of LTE in San Diego

    • Ptloma

      What part?

      • Alex

        North county , San Marcos, Vista, Oceanside, and Carlsbad, my friend picked up signal in these areas pretty sure escondido too or soon.

  • Jesus Puga

    I’ve yet to see LTE anywhere in Austin and we are at the end of May….

    • Ryan

      I live in cedar Park 10 min from Austin and im getting lte now im Austin area

      • Jesus Puga

        Wish I could say the same for South Austin = /

  • Jared

    We’ve had lte in Tulsa for a few weeks now, and I’m hitting a steady 0.11 mbps in Speedtest on my new HTC One. Like a boss I might add. Oh also, I hit my data limit a day after lte was enabled here, also very bossish of me. Before I was capped in my white Irish @$$ by Tmizzoble I was hitting 22 mbps all dizzay

  • Bob

    I’ve gotten one bar of LTE on my iPhone 5 in Detroit, only lasted a few mins before it went back to 4G

  • bbock

    25to30 down 10up Camden new jersey

    • jaycalderwood

      Wow. Nice. I have only 4g in Woodbury.

  • mike

    T-Mobile LTE now live in Philadelphia


    Philly is now live with lte today with 28203 down & 12197 upload

  • damellman

    great for the ppl who live in those cities….. Now if thay can stop being pricks and sell the galaxy s4 32 or 64GB version than i will become a costomer

  • Oliver Jackson

    Small remnants of it in Miami ,just testing but great.Haven’t seen anywhere else yet but will see tomorrow

    • jorgiting

      where in miami man, im eager to go and test it.

      • Oliver Jackson

        On Miami Beach 41 street and Alton Road .It was 3 weeks ago bro

    • Marcelo_L

      yeah so post Up all where you had your sightings of LTE in Miami

  • Xanderalmighty

    LTE all over NY. Mainly queens n brooklyn. Manhattan is spotty at best. Still see a faster rollout then sprint ever promised.

  • Christian Skinner

    I woke up to lte this morning in Charlotte NC

    • Me too. Looks like it just came on today. I’ve been getting it all over the University area today.

      • Bearxor

        I’m in the South Park area. Speeds are only hitting about 7 up and 2-3 down, which is about what I get on refarmed 1900 here.

  • sebastian

    LTE in Philadelphia this morning.

    • Scott

      It’s slow though.. 4g slow.

      • Kyle

        Funny though. I got 10 Down and 13 Up just outside of Philly.

    • sebastian o

      It’s getting better… it’s shows and disappear, speeds are between 10-20 down and 11 up on note 2

  • LTE up in Charlotte, NC. Download speeds similar to 4G at around 21mbps but uploads are higher around 8mbps.

    • Adam

      Which part of Charlotte? , i noticed it over on Belhaven and tuckaseegee

      • University Area. It’s been pretty consistent all day all over the area. Doesn’t penetrate into most of the buildings I went into today yet but it did work inside the Walmart up here.

  • Ryan

    Lte in Austin, round rock, cedar park, san Marcos, Texas this morning

    • fsured

      grrr… Wish I had an LTE phone to test it in Austin.

      • riDIRKulous

        OH snap, LTE on iphone 5 in RR, 620/O Connor. 24 DL 7 UL 29 ms.

    • I woke up to LTE this morning, very fast.

  • PapiManCT

    My phone has been acting up all week with the internet dropping from 4G to Edge and very slow so after a week I called T-Mobile to ask what was going on and to get some technical support. After doing a couple of checks and changes it seems to be ok for now but she also mention to me that one of the towers where I live (Stamford, CT) has been down for maintenance/repair so I’m assuming is that we are getting LTE soon, since Stamford is on the list for June. Now I need to wait for Google to allow me to use LTE on my NEXUS 4 -__-

    • remister

      Tell me how LTE is on your Nexus 4, once it is live.

  • as soon as Dallas launches LTE, i’ll make plans to get an LTE phone.

  • Daniel Duran

    Living here in Bakersfield, Ca. I’ve noticed some LTE-like speed tests in some areas also… 22mbps down, 10mbps up.

    • Z


  • Aurizen

    I seen LTE in philly about 1 am I was shocked.

  • CRT24

    We have LTE here in Oklahoma City…..not sure if this is still in the testing phase or if its final, and also not sure if all of the towers are lit up yet but the performance is impressive. The speed test numbers have not been out of this world but there is a huge increase in upload…..getting around 20mbs down and 10mbs up this morning. Regardles of that the actual performance is smoking fast…noticeable difference from hspa+ 4g!

  • DLow

    Spotted LTE is ceader hill tx off 67/belt line 29down 13up as of this morning

    • oh yeah … i’m near there in Duncanville … i guess i need to go ahead and plan for an LTE phone ..

    Average 15 down 10 up in Philadelphia

  • It’s live in the ATX now. 28+ down and 11+ up.

  • Aurizen

    This is just a disgrace, I’m getting LTE in philadelphia but my speeds are 4 up 3 down….

    • jjs81

      Same here. If it even connects…

      Been getting “network connection issue’ when I try to do a speed test with LTE on and showing in my status bar. I’m sure it will get better in a few days, as more LTE sites come online.

      • Aurizen

        I hope it will, 4g is bad too, 1up 2 down. I cant wait till Tmobile uses metro spectrum.

        • jjs81

          I was getting the same slow speeds with my “4g” after I enabled LTE. I turned off LTE and I started getting 6-8 down and 2 up.

        • guys chill out, they’re just testing it that’s why its not working at its full potential yet. It will once its turned on.

        • jjs81

          I know that. That’s why I said ” I’m sure it will get better in a few days, as more LTE sites come online.”

        • Aurizen

          what APN setting do you have?

        • jjs81

          The one for the “hacked” carrier update. epc.t-mobile.com.

        • Aurizen

          for LTE as well?

        • jjs81


        • Aurizen

          the hack doesnt work for me little to no change, tmobile needs more spectrum in my area.

        • jjs81


        • Aurizen

          my 4g has been slow, at this point I think thats all im gonna get in my area.

    • Quan Bui

      T-Mobile has one of the best data connections in Philly… well, at least in the NE and the burbs. I live in Olney and I get 11+MBPS down easily

      • Aurizen

        I was told AT&T and verizon would are better because they have more spectrum here. maybe its the APN settings I have, what do you have for yours?

  • Cobalt

    LTE showed up yesterday in part of Dayton.

    • Justin Hubbard

      Speedtest results?

    • sidekicker89

      • Name

        • Jesito473

          I’m hoping to see a “lte” icon flicker here in Cincinnati too, I’d be happy just to see a flicker :-)

  • Jazzyjeff215

    I’m getting great lte speeds in Philly, about 19-20 down and 12-16 up

    • jjs81

      What part of Philly? I’m in the lower NE and LTE is pretty slow and sporadic.

      • Jazzyjeff215

        I’m in North philly around temple University.

    • FMA9

  • riDIRKulous

    Been on LTE in Austin all morning: 15-25 DL 5-8 UL with low 30s ping

  • Joe Gualtieri

    Has anybody seen LTE in Northeastern New Jersey such as the “Oranges”, Clifton, Montclair, Wayne, or Secaucus?? Or etc..

    • HelloGello

      I live in the Newark/Jersey City area and I have not seen any signs of LTE yet. However, quality of service has been poor recently, so I’d assume they’re getting ready to flip the switch!

    • Roger Sales

      It’s definitely on its way this month,as there’s been significant changes in the way the network has responded inline with what HG said. I’m less than a mile away from NYC as is a lot of NNJ so they will need to hedge out and cover us before they can rubberstamp the NYC area LTE is up and running. Also, There’s at least one tower active in I believe Edgewater or Fort Lee according to sensorly.

  • Joshua R

    LTE just came on around midnight last night here in San Antonio’s Monte Vista area (around San Antonio College near downtown SA)… I’ll be driving up to Austin this evening to see how coverage is on 35 between SA & ATX….

  • tony

    Will it be the new “truly unlimited” or will the cap LTE and slow it down to just 4g after certain usage?

  • Billy Jingles

    I saw LTE in Celina, TX this morning. Its 40 miles north of downtown Dallas. Now that I am in my office in Downtown Dallas its just 4G.

  • bchildress

    I got LTE in Mid-Cities on way to work but it stopped when I got to Dallas proper. At lunch I saw int pop up and now at work in Deep Ellum it’s active.
