    10mbps is pretty close to HSPA+42 speeds, you've got nothing to worry about. HSPA21 is usually around 5-6mbps.

    Except I did get 8+ Mbps in the past on a G2, which is a category 10 device ( HSPA+14 in that nomenclature ), and other people in this thread are getting better than 20 Mbps on +42.

    Annapolis MD area getting 15/4 on average. Higher ping times than vzw late but for the most part the coverage is actually better than vzw.

    That's on my Nexus 4, so HSPA+.

    As you can see, I'm in no rush to get an LTE phone.

    One thing about T-Mobile HSPA -

    I absolutely love the speed and coverage so far, but why is the ping always so high? I'll get a ping of over a thousand, and then I'll get 28mbps!

    It's one of the disadvantages of HSPA+ compared to LTE. The other being upload speeds.

    I get a good ping if the phone is already showing H when I start the test. Always get a bad ping if it's showing 3G when I start the test. The test always causes it to switch from 3G to H, and I think that negotiation is what causes the slow ping.

    Yep - one thing you can try is to go with an immediate second test and see if ping times are way less. I think it's a very fair trade off for the battery saving feature it provides.

    Why do so many have 3G when data is idle. I'm on T-mobile postpaid and my phone always shows H when idle.

    Maybe it is the phone. I always get 3G when idle on my Nexus 4.

    I think it depends on the market for some reason. In Minneapolis, I get the 3G when idling, with the switch to H for data use. When I was in NYC a couple days ago, I would get a steady H, even when idle.

    I get 3G on idle as well, and H when I'm using data. The high ping times are annoying. I'm keeping a record of my speed tests to compare data speeds between AT&T and T-Mobile, now that I'm with the latter. My speeds are much better at home with T-Mo although the speed itself is just ok. We will see how different areas work out. At home (Dallas, TX) I average 5.46 Mbps down 1.39 Mbps up and 149 ms ping time.

    All this talk about LTE. I'm getting 18-25mbps on Tmobile H+ who cares about LTE. All this marketing hype. It's faster than my Comcast isp.

    yep! LTE has a higher possible speed but in real world tests they are pretty equal. the only real thing it is better at is the upload speed usually matches the download speed on LTE whereas HSPA+ is more like your home ISP where you have a significantly slower upload rate but hey, that's good enough for us at home so who cares? especially since you already said it's faster than home. I think I posted early in this thread that the average ISP rate is 6.7Mbps.

    Except example I'm on FiOS 35/35 and most times my upload speeds are faster than my download speeds. Uploading files is a breeze at home but slow as heck when using my Nexus 4 tethered to my laptop.
