    Some of you have some nice speeds. When I did speed test on T-Mobile with my gnex, I was getting 5-8Mbps down so I knew I might have good tests with the N4.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

To me, that's a perfectly acceptable baseline if I'm also getting great coverage and building penetration.
    Keep us updated. I have no idea when the N4 will be on sale again. So you should have plenty of time to experiment before I get mine!!

    Yes! Someone in San Diego with tmo! Do you have any idea how coverage is in the Del Mar / Carmel Valley area? Also, throughout the country, have you found dead zones? Thanks!

    Getting 6 Mbps down 2 Mbps up with AT&T. Still pretty quick speeds for data in my area. Switching LTE, I honestly don't really see a huge difference in day to day use on HSPA+ and this phone is a lot better then my GS3 by far.

    I live in Chicago too currently with Verizon and always have great LTE performance. I want to switch to T-Mobile but those results don't sound too good lol. I've heard T-Mobile is much better here than AT&T.

    What carrier? I'm near that area too.

    If you look again at the screenshot of the app (and not his notification bar), you'll see he tested on a data connection.

    Anyone in East Bay on T-mobile? I'm curious how coverage is in the Berkeley area

    I really thought I was gonna get decent service especially when I go way up north of the city but I was surprised with T-Mobile in the Boston area compared to sprint and Verizon who are my ex carriers and at&t aren't bad either and in one area in deep in the woods I was getting a little over 1mbps witch is still wicked better than sprint or Verizon 3g and the fact I'm getting around over 20mbps is great and really want to find out about the late chip in this phone its no biggie if on the end it doesn't really work the way it suppose to because I'm loving every part of this phone even though I thought I wudnt like the glass back but at least its beautiful piece of glass that I don't want to even pur a case and I haven't yet. I also had this phone for week and I pretty rough wit phones and no scratches so I love build quality surprise in lg bit also happy cuz competition is good for the consumer

    I currently live in southwest Missouri, but I'm moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Anyone here from that area with T-Mobile? I'm considering switching if Verizon ever finally takes my unlimited data away...

    In Berkeley I get ~4Mbps LTE with Verizon on my G-Nex, so that would actually be an improvement.. Thanks!

    These are the max speeds I have been getting with T-mobile on the Nexus 4. My average speeds have been at 14.50mbps. This is a huge step since I left Sprint, my average speed was 0.30mbps and max was 1.50mbps. I'm testing in the Detroit area.

    These are my average speeds on T-mobile with the Nexus 4. Yes, I know the first test was on wifi, I was doing a comparison.

    Earlier someone said something about going to get better building penetration on AT&T...you will only if you're in one of their 850 MHz areas, many people aren't. Where I work, neither Pink or Blue can get into the building. Actually, Blue can make it about 3' in if you're by a window. Red has no issues with penetration with their LTE.

    What are the plans you guys have with T-Mobile I know i get pretty good coverage in my area but I use my cell as a business # so I need a decent amount of minutes.

    Just curious, how many people who have posted their speeds are using Straight Talk T-Mobile SIM?

    One thing I want to add is that the latency test is much better in most cases with LTE. I use T-Mobile too and sometimes the Ping result is in the 1000's. I can't complain about the actual DL speeds because I can peak at 30mbps.

    Those download speeds are impressive, but those upload speeds are pathetic.

    If you're one to upload lots of videos, you're going to suffer.

    I think this is where Verizon's lte shines. I've had upload speeds faster than my download speeds.

    In San Francisco, speed test shows 18.26mb/down and 14.79mb/up for my galaxy nexus on vzw.

    I'm not knocking hspa+ on t mobile, just make sure you know the whole picture before making a decision.

    I only get about 10Mbps down on my GNex with Verizon 4G LTE. I'm in DC. The Nexus 4 looks to be a big improvement.
