    My experience in Ann Arbor, MI has been T-Mobile is the fastest but with good coverage only within the city or in neighboring cities like Dexter and Chelsea. Only Edge speeds in between. ATT is slower and has the weakest building penetration (T-Mobile is better), and Sprint has decent speeds and has good building penetration, almost as good as Verizon. However Verizon 3G speeds here are terrible. Overall T-Mobile service is very good here, and that's only on 21; I haven't been able to test 42 yet.

    I know Tmobile acquired some spectrum from leap in the St. Louis area ( ). I wonder if St Louis is still a single 10 mhz channel or if this "swap" allows full hspa+42. Anyone know? I know that St. Louis isn't a hspa+42 area yet, just wondering if the capability is there?

    Tmobile and AT&T stores out here use the store Wi-Fi so I can never do a speed test. Please post a screenshot when you can.

    Take it somewhere else. This is not a thread for a carrier fanboy circlejerk. There's plenty of those, pick one.

    Does anyone have experience with T-Mobile in the Dallas, TX area? Im with AT&T and wonder how coverage and data speeds compare. Specifically what HSPA+ speeds are between the two. Looking into getting a Nexus 4 and can live without LTE if HSPA+ speeds are decent.

    I know, right? Yet they have nothing up to speed in Missouri and one city in Kansas. Kansas City, MO and St. Louis are stuck on their HSPA+ 21 network, and I'd definitely call those major metro areas.

    However, much of my time now is spent in Waco, TX, which all the major carriers (and MetroPCS) love for some reason. I guess Baylor University being here makes a difference. If I weren't on contract with Sprint, I'd probably do what the AC writers suggest and test-drive the prepaid plans on T-Mobile and Straight Talk (AT&T). My guess is that AT&T has better coverage, but T-Mobile has better speeds, just like practically everywhere else.

    Along these same lines, can anyone confirm whether prepaid plans (either through MVNO or T-Mobile Itself) will have the same hspa+ 42 coverage footprint as the equivalent postpaid option?

    I've heard some say prepaid is the same, and others say you don't get full speed and even some say you don't get full access to all the T-Mobile towers (smaller coverage area).

    Live and work in the Boston area as a contractor doing much of my work on commercial buildings. I have T-Mobile and currently using the SGS3, I get great coverage inside and out of all major buildings in and around the Boston area. Of course if you are stuck in the middle of a concrete block room in the middle of a building you won't get service just like my Verizon with LTE won't. It is all the same. I get faster speeds with my T-Mobile phone, getting around 23mb down and 5 up right now. They just recently bumped the speeds even faster. The battery just keeps going. Currently T-Mobile is installing the 1900 radio network on all their towers, another great reason to go T-Mobile. I have not used my Verizon phone in over 2 months, the only reason I keep my plan is because i have unlimited data and don't want to give it up. T-Mobile offers unlimited data, real unlimited data without throttling for only 30 bucks a month. How the heck can you beat that? Give them a try, nothing to gain but speed and money in your pocket.

    I thought the aquasition of spectrum from Leap would allow St. Louis to become hspa +42. Do you or anyone know if St. Louis is still single 10 mhz channel?

    Sorry, not able to answer your question but I did want to ask you how you're liking TMobile. As a fellow Bay Area resident, I'm definitely curious to see what speeds you usually get for data and reception on your calls.

    And just to confirm, you currently own the G2X which is capable of hspa+ 42?

    For the folks talking about STL, are any of you on T-Mo now? Or ATT? I'm planning to buy the N4 and try out prepaid on both. I'm nervous though b/c I've heard horror stories about both networks. Wondering what the HSPA+ speeds are looking like on those two carriers.

    I have heard people getting an average of 2-6 on Tmobile in St. Louis. I don't think that Tmobile has 20 mhz of spectrum available so I doubt if you will see hspa+42 speeds anytime in the near future.

    Edit: It looks like in St. Louis Tmobile has 10 mhz in the C and D block. So I would think hspa+42 would be possible. They just acquired the C block from Leap mobile in April though I am not sure if they have any plans to run hspa+42.

    It's very possible that T-Mobile just stopped announcing new HSPA+42 locations, but didn't stop rolling them out.
    As I mentioned, that's their list -- I am just the monkey who copied all the press releases into one big ugly forum post so we didn't have to dig for it.

    Jerry,
    I believe that is an older list from June 2011. I remembered reviewing that when I was looking for another carrier months back. I am sure they have added more cities since.



    Per another post in the same news forum on T-mobile . However they are not listed in the release.

    I would guess that number is near 200 if not over by now since 2012 is almost over.
