    On T-Mobile in NJ I get really long ping times also normally (500 to 800 ms), but have gotten spot results down in the 40 ms range. Speeds here are typically in the 10 - 15 Mbps download and 1 to 3 Mbps upload range. Blows away my AT&T results with my iPhone 4s so much better for me than I did have.

    In my office, which is notorious for lousy cell signals, Speedtest just gave me 15.7 up, 8.1 down and 14ms ping. So far, I have no reason to complain about this phone or TMobile's prepaid plan.

    T-Mobile always has high pings. But my speeds and service in NYC are outstanding.

    It must just be T-mo in your area, as it's consistantly below 100ms here. But as someone said above, unless you're using it for online gaming you won't really be bothered terribly by it.

    APN epc.tmobile.com
    Proxy not set
    Port not set

    Screen shot shows your on wifi. Besides theoretical max uploads speeds on HSPA+ is only 5.76 mb/s.

    Ha! Yeah - turn off wifi and test it.

    I will say though, I am now getting 7 down in my basement - used to only get 5. So, either Tmo has upgraded something here or the 4.2.2 update has done some wonders. I need to try out that speed test across the street from the tower again - maybe I'll get 30!

    Never heard of anyone getting up to 25, let alone 30.

    T-Mobile turned on LTE early in MN, maybe?
    27 is the highest I've got but, I was close to a tower.

    Wouldn't matter. The Nexus 4 is not an LTE phone, and the update took away the ability to even put it on LTE.
    I have been reading that the Nexus 4 will indeed be able to access Tmo's LTE network when it comes out. Below is a post from the XDA thread about the guy who got LTE on his Gnote. The poster in the post is not the OP but, says this test is from a Tmo employee testing LTE in K.C. with a Nexus 4.

    Here's a speed test on T-Mobile prepaid. I'm in an hspa+21 market also. Great speed. But I noticed building penetration sucks compared to my straight talk AT&T Sim card. But the speed of my T-Mobile Sim is about 5-8 times faster which I don't understand because I get better coverage and more bars with AT&T sim

    Just a guess, but I'd assume your Tmo connection is at a faster standard, but your ATT tower is closer.

    Yep has to be something. I only get around 2mbps download on AT&T with full bars. And around 350ms pings

    One thing to note with ATT - you have to be certain you are on a H+ type plan. At 2mbps it looks like you are only enabled up to 3g. I don't know if there is some sort of ATT straight talk limit though.
