Hello Again With Another Round Of LTE Sightings From Across The Country

Screen Shot 2013-06-17 at 5.33.47 PM

It’s another day in T-Mobile land and you know what that means, another group of LTE sightings. With yesterday’s activity, T-Mobile’s LTE network is clearly stepping into another gear as these sightings are steadily coming in from every geographic area we’ve posted. This morning the honor goes to Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham, Alabama; multiple cities in Puerto Rico, Orlando/Kissimmee, Florida; Salem, North Carolina and Cleveland, Ohio. I should also throw Pittsburgh in as a few sightings have also come my way in the last 24 hours.

I expect an announcement any day now from T-Mobile as there have been far too many sightings to completely ignore that at least some of these cities are perhaps soft launched. With the window for T-Mobile to hit their promised 100 million POPs covered by summers end narrowly approaching, someone, somewhere must be crafting an announcement. At least, I hope someone, somewhere is doing exactly that.

Now for the public service reminder that I continually offer in these LTE sighting posts: “I wouldn’t jump too far ahead and assume that a LTE sighting means an entire market is live. For the moment, we’re just happy things are progressing and that more markets appear on the horizon.”

Are you seeing LTE on your smartphone today?

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

  • Atlanta and Sandy Springs, Marietta,
  • Austin and Round Rock, San Antonio, 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)

  • seananigans

    Are they going to flip the switch on most of these markets all at the same time?

    • JJ

      Not all at same time…….every market will do their launch on their own but more or less same day or days apart.

  • kev2684

        • Tina

    • JohnnyDJunior

      Really what phone are you using

      • melon3531

        This is on the HTC One.

    • Qbancelli

      Yeah, for some strange reason still refusing to mention NYC in any of the sightings.

    • franco4785

      Did you enter the apn for lte? It’s set to blank by default.

      • Just filled it in with fast.T-Mobile.com.. no go. It says the apn is optional. But did it anyway

        • franco4785

          I don’t know how everyones case may be but when I went to the T-Mobile store there was no LTE, then I entered that APN and LTE appeared.

      • yup, i did.. it says optional.. but i put in fast.t-mobile.com.. nothing for LTE.. Must be a certain pocket in Kissimmee. i drove to downtown Kissimmee and still got nothing

    • leeb1022

      i’m on 192 west by disney world and no signs of LTE here yet. I’m wondering where in Kissimmee they are referring to. Hopefully it rolls out soon!

  • Camille

    I noticed LTE on my phone this morning, but I live about 30 minutes north of Atlanta, and 20-30 minutes east of Sandy Springs & Marietta. So, my area wasn’t even listed as getting LTE, unless we’re included as part of the Atlanta area.

    I was able to get speeds of 18.29 Mbps download, and 5.36 Mbps upload.

    • kay

      Where are you?

        • jimmyhoffa007

      • Chris

        I needed to update my radio!! Thanks for this response or I wouldn’t have even thought about it.

    • Steve

      Downtown has it, midtown near Wayne State, Detroit/hamtramck area, and warren have it. Maybe even more places in Detroit, haven’t checked them all.

      • Chris

        I work at henry ford hospital and drive home to clarkston and don’t see it anywhere along that entire route :/

      • Chris

        I needed to update my radio!! Thanks for this response or I wouldn’t have even thought about it!

      • Chris

        What?!? I live right around there!! There must be something wrong with my phone…

      • Chris

        I needed to update my radio!! Thanks for this response or I wouldn’t have even thought about it!!

        • spritemoney


    • LTE speeds everyday in Livonia, MI for me.

  • Justadude

    • kay

      Whaaat really? I am on Mansell and have 0 LTE.

  • Atrblmakr

    Tmobile has upgraded in the subways in downtown NYC. Even dead spots in Queens where I only got 2G I get strong LTE.

  • BigMixxx

    They HAVE to had been in a position to roll out LTE a long time ago. This has to be the fastest ramp up of new technology, ever….

    Way to go Tmo!

    @david I saw you guys picked up andridandme.com…awesome. You need a weekend writer…look this way. LOL

  • guest

    Mount Clemens,MI has LTE now right on Groesbeck Hwy

    does sarasota have it yet?

    • Mike Savage

      Closest I’ve heard is St Pete

      • Tony

        I have nothing in Feather Sound AREA!!

  • Eric

    I just wish the would update my area to anything!@!!! I have been stuck at 25kbps for years, while every other carrier in my market has updated their networks. It really sucks to have one of the most awesome phones (note ii) with not backend.

    • Mark J

      same here downtown Dallas LTE around not for me . I’m in death spot use to be like .075 Mb and .35 Mb now is 4Mb and 2 Mb, NOT LTE !! just HSPAP. Lte is two blocks away and Tmo just ignore my complains since April since I moved to Tmo from ATT ? Well at least I do not have “beautiful” pop up every 20min ” no internet connection” all the towers are on other side of I35 covered with wall of high buildings :/

    • TechHog

      Years? Then you should have just switched. Why would you stick with a carrier that doesn’t serve your area for so long? As much as I love T-Mobile, if I moved to an area without proper coverage I’d switch right away.

    • Noah James

      Call T- mobile and do a service request for your area. I would have other people you know do it as well to bring notice to the problem.

  • MikeM

    Winston-Salem, NC. In downtown and other spots.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    T-Mobile is on fire

  • sticksabuser

    Pittsburgh too

    • Dave Anderson

      Only mainly in areas real close to the city. Especially lacking in Eastern suburbs like White Oak and North Huntingdon. My thinking is there are more towers to be rolled out hopefully soon.

    • Andy Besselman

      Yea I’m getting lte in the north hills

  • Rob D

    Winston-Salem, NC showing 4g LTE. It is fast!!!!

  • heatdr

    Poor LTE signal strength in Broward County (ft. Lauderdale)

  • R

    Anyone noticed LTE in Lansing, MI ?

  • ChrisL

    NO STL = WTF

  • jfrov11

    I got a little over 15 mbps download speed here in Miami. My wifi was only giving me 14. I’m happy I switched from Sprint. The again, dial-up would be better than Sprint.

  • Smoke007

    in central new jersey there are traces of LTE in the towns of perth amboy, woodbridge , and some other area in Middlesex county

    • MIke

      Yea, I live in Northern NJ, (East Rutherford) and have lte

      They probilely put it in my town because the MetLife Stadium is here ,

  • Chris

    Is anyone else not getting data service when the phone reverts back to 4G from LTE? Getting a lot of that in South FL.

    Definitely not complaining..I know there are hiccups and bumps to smooth out with the implementation of a new network, especially when it hasn’t been officially announced. Just seeing if this is the norm for now :)

    • xbaer

      yep, seeing the same. sometimes drops to hspa with almost no traffic going through. work in progress

    • jimmysalg

      Yeah it’s definitely been spotty, sometimes it just jumps to edge.

  • eric c

    Raleigh nc has it on some towers today, getting 30 down and 13 up…very nice.

    • James Kosek

      Where in Raleigh? I’ve yet to see any in the area.

      • eric c

        Best speed I got was at millbrook and falls of the neuse intersection. Also getting it at six forks/wake forest rd. I hear it is downtown as well.

        • rikrasmussen

          I am NOT seeing it at home in Wake Forest. had it at my office in Durham today.

      • JT

        I have seen it all day all over Downtown Raleigh and parts of Wake Forest Road all the way down to the edge of Garner/Raleigh on US 70.

    • NCHummer

      Also seeing LTE in Cary, NC at intersection of High House & Maynard

  • TechHog

    I’m gonna laugh if that “May and June” list is still being posted in July.

  • rikrasmussen

    Durham, NC getting 4G LTE icon on Tmobile today.

    • Rodger Seabrook

    • Chad Dalton

      Awesome news…it will get better! I’m in Winston too!

  • Sims Koger

    Ogden, UT just turned on.

    • Jarobusa

      Can you map Ogden with Sensorly? I am going to map Utah County once its live here.

  • Leslie Curtis

    LTE in Detroit/Livonia, MI area and speeds where pretty good.

    • Ray Dull

      yeah, right around plymouth and merriman has had lte for a few weeks, as of like 2 days ago way more of westland and livonia have lte now, I’m averaging around 20mbps down, 7mbps up in the new areas, 22/20 at merriman and plymouth, I’m guessing they have better backhaul there.

  • Panzer

    Just north of tampa have a weak LTE as of today

  • Lee

    Downtown Orlando, College Park, and East Orlando by the Executive airport. Very fast! 28 down 11 up with only 3 bars!

  • Tony

    Strong LTE Yesterday in Countryside, north Pinellas county, West of Tampa, but Pasco county 4G only!!

  • Chad Dalton

    Woohoo…go Greensboro, NC! Oh I can’t wait to get my T-Mobile service back! Soon the days of getting throttled will be over!

  • jimmyhoffa007

    I work in Detroit and lastnight was the first time it showed lte on my phone. It was working great and I couldn’t believe the speeds. I also picked it up for a quick second in wyandotte Michigan.

    • turtle6988

      We are still building. I live in Lincoln Park and do not have LTE yet but it 9s coming

  • Hoppysport

    I live in the Gramercy Park area of Manhattan. LTE popped up on my Note 2 (Glad I sold my S3 when the Note 2 came out…for the LTE radio). Of course I did the Speedtest, and I got 21 down and 15 up. Just fantastic! This is the only spot in NYC that I’ve received LTE so far. I do routinely get up to 19 down and 7 up on HSPA plus.

  • Skippy204

    I had an LTE spotting today in Scranton on my iPhone 5. I didn’t get a picture but I will watch for it again. I just walked in my house when I saw it.

  • Alex v

    North county San Diego is live, at least San Marcos, ca and parts of Escondido.

  • sushimane

    im crossing my fingers for spartanburg sc getting lte in the next couple of months.

  • Steve

    hey im getting lte in Nashville,TN too

    • Dion Mac

      stfu. Really? Where at?

      • khalidalomary

        i dont know about steve but i got it near the green hills area

  • GazaIan

    Just got LTE here in the Bronx, NY. It’s been out in other areas of NYC, like Brooklyn for a while now.

  • Nick

    LTE in Camarillo, CA

    • tooterbugg

      I have been getting 1-2 bars of LTE in Oxnard, CA (Ventura County). I am only able to get the LTE signal on the third floor of my place or certain small areas around town (otherwise I have the “4G” signal). In no place have I had more than 2 bars yet. My speeds are high teens to low twenties. I hope they cover the entire state. Watch out Verizon & AT&T!

    • tooterbugg

      Nick…Is your LTE signal consistent all over Camarillo or only in certain areas of the city?

  • Blaque Berry

    Atlanta GA….first time since Sunday…it was on and off minutes at a time….has been steady for about 7 minutes now…

    • wezra

      Yes… pretty strange. They must be fooling around with the network in Atlanta and surrounding areas because I am actually getting “E” from time-to-time and then back to 4G and then LTE. But when I was in San Jose, CA this past week “LTE’ was on no less than 90% of the time. It was great. At least I know what to expect when they turn all of Metro Atlanta on!

  • Sacrf22

    YAY! 4G LTE in Cleveland!

  • Candy man

    Chicago 60641. Cicero n George street. Samsung Galaxy S4. Download 2 upload 1.5. Irving park n Cicero download 2.5 upload 0.5. Then 85% of the time your on Edge that’s 2g in Chicago. Tmobile need to step up their game soon. The 60647 No LTE your on Edge. Grand n Harlem 60707 No LTE.

  • John

    I got LTE in Albuquerque New Mexico

    • jason

      Same here but it seems to be off and on starting last Friday in the University area.

  • KingCobra

    LTE up all over Charlotte, NC. Still switches back to 4G sometimes and currently the download speeds are equal to the HSPA+42 speeds I already get here. The upload is higher though.

  • Claudine Gandolfi

    Just got it in White Plains NY!

  • Brian Kirby

    Been getting 4G LTE in Lexington, KY since early this morning. Seems mostly to be inside of New Circle Road.

  • Mike Nelsen

    I’ve been getting LTE all over Monmouth County, NJ, best download was 31, best upload 12.

  • Bob

    I got stable 2 bar LTE in South Tampa all day. 11 down and 6 up.

  • AndroidProfit

    STOP TEASING ME TMOBILE!!!!!! All day today from time to time I would get the “LTE” logo under the 4g! EVERYTIME I would load up the speedtest app and BOOM the LTE logo vanishes! CRAP!!!

    • Mike Nelsen

      That happened to me too all last week lol. It was like they knew I was trying to test it.

  • Mean Gene

    Look at all those cities in California with lte… Good job T-Mobile


      They still need Central California. Only Fresno and Bakersfield have LTE. No other cities in between… :(

  • Jarobusa

    Looking Sensorly, LTE is live in Salt Lake City.

  • JayR Yambao

    Been getting LTE pretty regularly here in Jersey City, NJ.

  • Booya

    For Samsung – Press *#0011# if you have LTE DL BW = 5 then it’s a 5Meg market, if it is = 10 it is a 10meg market. 10meg expect 35-40mbps downloads, uploads at 15-25mbps. For 5MHz you can divide the above by 2.

    • doink902000

      How do you know this information? If this is correct, I should expect the 35-40mbps download and upload at 15-25mbps. I’m currently getting an LTE signal in Fort Worth, Texas. But, it’s only two bars. Three bars for a few seconds, then it goes away. I wonder how long will it take for them to work out the kinks? I went on Edge for the first time today in my area. It was also fluctuating all day, between all three speeds. With heavily reduced “4g” speeds.

  • hellsh666

    Higgins&Oakton-Elk Grove Village. IL LTE fire up on hacked nexus4 radio .33 almost 15DL 13UL

  • jefski2003

    Need LTE for Myrtle Beach SC, thats a big tourist area. Comon Tmobile, work your magic a

    • Nick

      Apparently won’t be any time soon. It hasn’t even been re-farmed for 1900Mhz HSPA yet. I’m guessing later this year.

  • ransack

    Holy crap lte just popped up on my note 2 In Decatur, al. 37 ms 24.16 down

    • Asquared

      Decatur in which state? GA? Thanks!

      • Asquared

        Sorry, I didn’t see the small “al”. Assuming that means Alabama.

        • ransack

          Yes sir alabama

        • ransack

          Only had 2 bars, im surprised with the speed

      • Philip

        Yes. County of Dekalb.

        • Dion Mac

          He’s in Alabama, So have you seen lte in Decatur GA. If so where?

  • Juan Pablo Darquea

    Mine in miami slow do but is lte7.5 Dow 3.5 up

    • Sharklover

      That what I am getting too in Aventura. Problem is I only get 1 or 2 bars. So I am only using 4G which gives me 5 bars and similar download speeds. I hope it gets better.

  • wagonis

    Tampa area, got about 27 down and 10 up

  • Richard Yarrell

    Definitely in New York City On Sunday Father’s day sightings were strong. Now here Wednesday morning June 19th Manhattan New York is getting solid 28 down 19 up various results. On Monday June 17th LTE was spotted in the Bronx New York City so I would assume June 30th to July 7th could be the time T-mobile officially launches New York City and Bronx. Brooklyn, Queens already has been lit up weeks ago for LTE these are some pretty consistent speed.

  • Paul

    I now have LTE on my iPhone 5 in El Paso, Texas!!!!!

  • JoeBro3

    Bugs Bunny will never miss the left turn in Albuquerque again because his iPhone 5 can now pickup LTE @
    32 Mbps down & 12 up !! :D

  • Keith Colombo

        It’s unnecessary when the phone has a task killer built in

  • DCTheTruth

    All these poor souls. Happy over ~20mbps downloads and ~10mbps uploads. When here in the good old city of Portland Oregon I’m constantly seeing 30mbps downloads and uploads in the 20mbps area. Always on 1 or two bars . I should also mention I got 27mb down and 7.6 up on HSPA+ the other day too

    • Trevnerdio

      7.6 up on HSPA+? I’m pretty sure the max supported by HSPA+ phones is 5.76…

      • Ethrem

        You are correct. Either he is trolling or the server didn’t give him the correct speed result.

      • carlohernandez

        Actually the max on both the HTC One (my phone) and tmobiles enhanced backhaul HSPA+ 42 are 14.7 and 22 respectively

  • James Kosek

    Seeing LTE in parts of Cary, NC (Kildaire Farm road and Davis Drive area) but not quite usable yet. Speed test DL comes in at about 3m, but upload never connects. Nice to see the LTE symbol on my Note II doing something though.

    • rikrasmussen

      That is about what I was getting in Durham yesterday, no upload.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    Nothing for me yet in Atlanta/Decatur

    • Wilma Flintstone

      Ok so I did some riding around and yep, I got the LTE signal!!!

      • Dion Mac

        where at? anywhere near wesley chapel rd?

        • Wilma Flintstone

          Yep right off Gresham and Candler actually.

    • Wilma Flintstone

      I was still pulling 7Down, 1 Up though on LTE but it was 1 bar LTE

    • Dion Mac

      I live in Decatur, work in Midtown. Rode the whole way with my phone on LTE only. No service… But, maybe its because I haven’t configured my nexus 4 correctly yet. Go figure.

  • Farahnaaz Ramji

    There’s Lte in the Alpharetta area as well but it’s a small area there.

  • V

    getting 30/10 in pittsburgh for the last week or so :D

  • h_f_m

    Hopefully when Google launches the 4.3 update for Nexus devices AWS LTE will be re-enabled on the Nexus 4. I don’t hold out much hope.

    • Ethrem

      Just downgrade your baseband. Problem solved.

      I doubt Google will unlock AWS LTE – it will make att customers pissed and wondering why they can’t connect to LTE but their friends on T-Mobile can.

  • David Sivic

    27 up/8 down in Mentor, Ohio. Also seeing LTE in Cleveland, but haven’t tested speed successfully (trying to test on Nexus 4).

    • Trevnerdio

      Switch those ;)

      • David Sivic

        You’re right, switch them. On the positive side, I was able to test lte in downtown Cleveland with 29 down and 10 up. :-)

  • wezra

    Just came back to Atlanta from San Jose, CA and enjoyed LTE the entire time in San Jose… the iPhone 5 was lightning fast… unreal! I did pick up LTE in Atlanta on my way home to Alpharetta, but not getting it in Alpharetta yet. We are about 17 miles due north of downtown.

  • Asquared

    T-Mobile appears to be testing in my area of Smyrna, GA. I live within a mile of three T-Mobile cell towers. The LTE indicator on my Note II comes on for a few minutes, then disappears. The bad news — active LTE appears to eat Note II batteries for breakfast, lunch and dinner (hasn’t asked for a snack yet)! Hoping that as the implementation proceeds battery life improves!

    • Garo.j

      That’s the downside to LTE. Had it on att last year i was a LG nitro and the battery would drain in about 45 minutes. It’s the reason i cancelled my service and bought a hspa+ device.

      • Roger Sales

        This is going to sound extremely odd but I think my Note 2’s battery life improved after LTE was flipped on…..maybe because it no longer is searching for the LTE network it supported.

  • Philip

    I saw LTE icon for the first time in south Atlanta. But it didnt stay for long. Less than 1 minute a few times. How do I make it stick?

    • xbaer

      wait until they finished testing.

      • Farahnaaz Ramji

        Mine stuck.

    • Roger Sales

      You don’t, really. Over time your signal will be more steady/reliable as more towers in your area are turned on, you probably are in an area where the tower you got LTE from is still being worked on. I started getting brief stints of service and it would flicker on and off….sometimes it would stay for a few minutes and sometimes it wouldn’t and a week later it became permanent(and not just at my home, but my whole neighbourhood).

      • remister

        I would have to agree with @5da4551c26b9ad7fe72e0282e441db65:disqus, My battery was being drain by ONE bar LTE signal going to HSPA+ 4 Bars continously. So i would just force it to be on HSPA+ speeds. I will turn LTE back on when full rollout or when I know I have good LTE connection

  • Scott

    Looks like it’s time to bite the bullet and unlock the bootloader on this Nexus 4…

    • remister

      I believe you need to downgrade the radio firmware to unlock LTE on N4.

      • Scott

        Correct. (Sorry, that is what I was getting at…)

  • Farahnaaz Ramji

    Just spotted Lte off 78 hwy near 285 going towards Decatur.

    • Dion Mac


  • Sok

    Hating the signal strength in Dallas
    Barely goes over 2-3 bars in 75010/75007

    • Trevnerdio

      At least you have LTE…

  • Shahzad Malik

    Have LTE here in Addison IL with one bar.. I am few blocks from the LTE tower and have no idea why this is such a low signal. It is okay everywhere else. Even in my backyard I get one bar.. Called T mobile and they told me everything was okay on their end… Not sure what to do here…

    • drklahn

      think the signal meter needs to be calibrated for LTE. most of the time i get 1-2 bars. 3 at most. but the download speeds are fine.

      • Shahzad Malik

        So who is going to re calibrate the signal? And better question is when? 1 bar is raping my battery

        • drklahn

          The signal strength indicator is arbitrary – so it’ll be up to manufacturer/T-Mobile to update. If LTE is killing your battery, maybe force HSPA+ only?

        • Shahzad Malik

          Seems like my phone manufacturer /tmobile have my signal strength just right about everywhere else I go other than just my house location. This is a network problem…

    • Trevnerdio

      The tower you’re looking at may not have LTE on it, but you’re getting it from another tower.

      • Shahzad Malik

        It’s a possibility, but tech support verified I am connected to the closest tower by my house..

        • Trevnerdio

          There’s no way they could know that without having you enter a code into your dialer and getting your LAC identifier to tell you which cell tower.

  • NismoQR25

    Include Albuquerque NM 30,000 kbps on the download

  • JahnBodah

    Looks like LTE just got turned on for me! (note 2) Im in central ohio (columbus/hilliard)

    • sidekicker89

      Yay! I’m in Dayton and we have had LTE since May 30th!

      • JB45

        Needs to start working its way south to Cincinnati

  • Trevnerdio

    Okay, you can hold off on the commercials, T-Mo, but when are you going to update your coverage map??

    • Wilma Flintstone

      This is my biggest concern. I don’t need faster speeds anymore. I need more coverage area.

      • Trevnerdio

        I mean their actual map, but yes…coverage area, definitely

  • omg lte!!

    LTE in Hiram Ga!!!!

  • Dann

    LTE in Marietta, GA (big chicken area) two bars ~16mbps DL -6mbps UL

  • Blaque Berry

    My LTE stayed on full blast all night and was still steady this morning! Another small wonder is that I’ve had a 4g signal in my office all day when normally it’s emergency calls only lol

  • Jay J. Blanco

    To check tmobile 4G lte coverage heres the link http://www.sensorly.com/map/4G/US/USA/T-Mobile/lte_310260

  • Brock Lesnar

    I’m in Dallas for business and was in Arlington yesterday. Got 51.78 mpbs down, 8.52 mbps up and a 25 ms ping. WOW.

    • Chad Dalton

      Wow, that’s crazy!!! But great news!!!

  • gsxrguy412

    My lte is kicking strong here in Pittsburgh pa on my Galaxy n2!! Way to go tmo!!

  • Update. I get 4G LTE nearly everywhere in the Detroit area & surrounding city. I just guess for some reason, it doesn’t really work well in my house. I get4G HSPA+ in my house, but not a stable 4G LTE connection. When I go upstairs sometimes, I get it, but when I walk through other parts of the house, it goes back to 4G HSPA+. I got 4G LTE all throughout various parts of Detroit. My sister had her graduation today and I got 4G LTE in the school, and various area of Detroit. Even right by my neighborhood, there to Dearborn, MI (near Fairlane Mall) where we had a meal at Chili’s.

    • turtle6988

      We are still building and turning sites up. New sites are coming up every week

      • That’s great to know :)

      • nightkid

        Hello turtle6988. I would like to know any new near by auburn hills city? Thank

  • c83

    Atl. Sandy Springs and along 285. Getting up to 33 mbps

  • guest

    will there be LTE near 21 and 22 mile and up near Chesterfield township Michigan?

    • Ricki

      I got LTE on hall road and gratiot. I think that’s close by. So looks like you’ll have it in a day or two.

  • Maged Mikhail

    LTE in Nashville TN

    • khalidalomary

      yes same here man i have had it more than 6 times

  • 60641

    Chicago Illinois 60639. LTE sucks download 2 upload 0.2. Then your on edge all the time. On IPHONE 5 and on Samsung Galaxy S4. Then indoors no LTE or 4G your on EDGE. 60641 60647 60004 60707 60618 Needs to improve cause being on edge 80% of the time sucks then indoors is the worst one. LTE sucks in Chicago 60639.

  • 60641

    Chicago Illinois 60641 LTE download 3 upload .5 indoors no LTE or 4G always on EDGE that’s anywhere indoors. 60641 60068 60618 60707 60647 LTE is so bad it needs to improve just like 4G n LTE.

    • KingCobra

      How many times are you going to keep copy and pasting this post? Complain to T-Mobile so that they do something about it rather than Tmonews.

    • Noah James

      What will spamming that post on tmonews do to improve the issue? Call T-mobile so they can fix the problem. { dial 611 from a t-mobile phone.} Another solution could be to go to http://www.t-mobile-takeaction.com/ and fill it out.,

  • JP

    I’m so jealous!!! Lol, all these sightings all around us, and Cincinnati is still in the ditch (Geographically speaking too) :-). Checking to see if anyone sees it in the area. once I see it I’ll write it in bold letters. Congrats Y’all!

    • John Kurokawa

      It’s all over Dayton, so it has to be coming to the Queen City soon!!!

    • yo

      I look every day so I’ll be watching for your post!

  • Zack

    Why do you leave Wichita out of the mix?

  • Ghost79

    Yea finally some LTE down here in Sweet Home Alabama!

    • sino8r

      What part? Seems to be live here in Birmingham and someone mentioned Decatur somewhere in the comments…

      • Wireless Addict

        It’s live here in Birmingham, just lit up Hoover today, and Tuscaloosa also has active LTE..

  • doug

    Just got my lte service could not download speed test had to go to wifi to download 3 bars not in pressed 4g was faster wish I could attach my screen shots

  • Whitney

    I was getting LTE speeds in Livonia and Detroit on my iphone 5

  • EJ30188

    Got up 3 bars lte for a short time on hwy 92 near Roswell coming from Woodstock, ga. 36 down 21 up.

  • Alex

    Got 2 or 3 bars in North Miami Beach, also 2 bars of LTE 2 houses away from mine on Miami Lakes. Speeds ar far from great. Just 8 mb down and 4 up.

  • burquenm

    Picking up LTE Albuquerque,

    I got 27.30mbps dowload and 3.10mbps upload 78ms ping on HSPA+! My highest LTE was 23.84mbps download and 12.90mbps upload with 40ms ping! I rather stay with HSPA+ ijs. Tampa FL

  • Bakersfield Beaner

    I’ve gotten 35.81mbps download and 20.69mbps upload in Bakersfield, CA

  • Karl Cieslak

    My phone just said LTE for the first time ever. I did a double take. I am in Columbus Ohio.

  • Andy Johnson

    Me too! Columbus, Ohio. Reading LTE right now. Downtown.

    • asdfasd

      Getting LTE in Gahanna. 0-1 bars. Falls back to 3G in New Albany, and EDGE about 2 miles outside of New Albany.

      What a contrast.

      • Karl Cieslak

        They are doing lots of work on it which is why it’s going up and down.

  • Stephan

    What about toledo Ohio ?

  • drklahn

    Me thinks T-Mobile LTE Signal Indicator is understating that actual signal strength. For example, I typically get 1-2 bars – 3 bars at most. A better way to determine signal strength is to look at dBm:

    The LTE Signal Strength Scale:

    Now you have determined your actual LTE signal strength in dBms your device is receiving, you can use the following scale below to determine its strength:

    Better than -96dBm is a great signal
    Between -97dBm and -107dBm is good
    Between -108dBm and -114dBm is fair
    Worse than -115dBm is poor

  • airbound9

    In Miami I’m getting LTE signal. 17.40 Download / 5.24 upload in speedtest

  • Shahzad Malik

    I was getting one bar of LTE in Addison IL, and my download was at 9mbps with 7upload…i flipped over to 4g and realized my 4g speeds have gotten twice as fast as they used to be!! Check your settings, until signal issues are fixed it might be better to switch over to 4g and save battery.

  • Mak

    If you are getting LTE service in a City T-mobile has not yet announced I would think it would be slow seeing how it is not yet live. Those of you speaking about bars of service this has nothing to do with your 4G or LTE service. The bars are for voice coverage. With that said I was getting download speeds of 33-35 and upload speeds of 15-17 in Wichita Kansas which is not yet live, never the less that is super fast.

    • sino8r

      Quit talking out your ass… LTE advanced is for voice and data. We don’t have it yet. Make a phone call in a lte area and you’ll notice it switch to hspa quickly….

  • khalidalomary

    nashville,tn has lte where ever u go

  • Salt Lake City

    Salt Lake City has not yet been announced, but I have been getting LTE for a few days in a row averaging over 20 megs down, and nearly 10 down. About a 33% increase over what I was getting on HSPA+ with an HTC One.

    • SLC 2

      Where are you getting those speeds? I get 3-6 down and 5-8 up at 2nd South and 2nd East. It hasn’t seemed that much better than HSPA+ so far…

      • Nik Sartain

        I’m having patches near the University, 7th East/400 south, heart of downtown. I’ve had a 30mb spot downtown with 12 up. We aren’t announced yet, so wait for the all go.

  • Whitney

    Interesting thing happen today. I was sitting in my room playing on my phone when it said LTE. I was like sweet LTE in Farmington hills but it back to 4g

    • Deepika Patel

      It does that to me too here in Troy .. I’ll have like 1 or 2 bars of LTE then a few mins later bam … 4 bars of 4G! Oh well not complaining but it kills battery life when it keeps jumping back and forth! What are near farmington hills ? :D

  • pnwoutback08

    While in Portland Or past few days on LTE 35469 upload and 18478 down.

  • Avri

    1st glimmer of LTE today in Seminole County FL (Oviedo, Northeast suburbs of Orlando)

  • Central Ohio…we have LTE

  • Eb

    Got 38mbps down and 21mbps near the la fitness in Roswell, ga,

  • howard thirtle

    I was able to connect to LTE today in Raleigh, North Carolina. I did not test the speed yet

  • madaria

    I am in Atlanta, GA and I have been able to get at least 20-24 mbps for the last 3 days.

  • Brandon

    You can add Deptford, NJ to that list!

  • scott

    North sarasota fl just got lte today. 24 down 11 up

    • alex

      which part? i live near sarasota square mall.

  • Ilyas

    I get some spotty LTE in NY (Manhattan, Brooklyn). The area by my house showed the best results so far.

  • mrt

    I saw it in Tampa yesterday, using my Z10, i could only use the speedtest.net website but I still got 12mbps down and 2mbps up. I have yet to see it in Orlando anywhere.

  • Antonio Francis

    Its showing up here in Lexington Ky also

    • Danny Lewis

      Cool! A T-Mo store associate said they were testing it back in late March (when I switched from prepaid to post-paid). What sucks is that I have a Nexus 4. :( Do you have a screenshot of this and the area you saw it in?

      • Antonio Francis

        i dont right now as im using a basic phone right now cuz i broke my other one.. but i can get some from my friend.. i know that man-o-war and richmond road and down toward hamburg has it. they are also refarming the area because the at&t phone im using now is a few years old and 3g is on it now.
        Red Mile and South broadway area has it also

        • Danny Lewis

          That’s shocking that T-mo is giving Kentucky some love. I wish I could at least stay on Edge when traveling between Lexington and Richmond.

        • Antonio Francis

          haha yea i know right, while traveling its not that great but in the city its wonderful.lol i just went to north carolina last weekend and most of the way i was roaming on AT&T
          edit: here is a screenshot he sent.. this is actually the lowest i saw, its usually in the 20+ range

  • Scott

    Most of Wilmington down through New Castle and Newark, Delaware is now covered and also running full speed. I’ve noticed dramatic increases in speed over the last few days.

  • Joshua Suits

    Charlotte is seeing LTE, with two bars was able to get 28.22 Mbps down and 8.17 Mbps up on a Nexus 4

  • Bill Techert

    Been on Edge forever and three miles up the road is 4G. Been with TM since the Suncom takeover. Come on TM, we need towers out here to.

  • Roger Sales

    Today I mapped out more of the Union City/West New York/North Bergen area in North jersey to try to pinpoint where LTE is live. Its not 100% accurate but you can kind of see where it begins and ends, particularly when I was coming home I noticed that LTE on Bergenline avenue began at 48th street after it stopped around 65th. I intentionally walked through Hudson avenue at first so I could get a feel for about what percentage of my area is lit up.

    One thing I did notice is that I had a pretty steady full 4 bar signal of 4G where LTE was not active which I never saw much of before, possibly because I’m picking up PCS HSPA+(although I don’t know how to test for it on a note 2. Feel free to interject with a tip if you want more information on North jersey LTE/HSPA+)

    Tomorrow I will be going through Palisade and Kennedy.,… I’m also open to taking requests in my area if its not too out of the way.(I reserve the right to say ‘no’, of course.)


  • bridges

    Orlando has some lte areas now.
