    Default First speed test Nexus 4 on TMobile

    Using speedtest.net app, getting 33.9 down, 4.9 up here just outside of St Paul, MN. Not complaining at all.

    Wooooohoh. That's even faster than LTE speed in my area. Congrats!

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

    T-Mobile turned on LTE early in MN, maybe?

    Best I've seen on mine is 16 down.

    Are you on prepaid by chance? I wouldn't think that would make a difference, but wanted to ask.

    Yes, I am on prepaid. I havent heard of TM turning on LTE here. I thought the N4 has it disabled now in 4.2.2 since it would have to go through FCC again? Am I wrong?

    I'm jealous!

    In Charleston, SC on T-Mobile (HSPA+ locally), I generally get about 8-10Mbps down (fastest I recall is about 16) which is really far more than I need for anything, but generally average 1-1.5Mbps up (never seen over 2) and that's something I wouldn't mind an improvement on. That said, the ping is really nice for a cellular network (normally 50-80ms).

    Comparing it to Verizon LTE here, where I was averaging 10-12Mbps down and 3-5Mbps up, but a 100-120ms ping - and with T-mo at a fraction of the price (and supporting the N4 ) - I have no overall regrets.

    Here in Portland I can get up to 28mbps. Hence I don't need lte.

    Wouldn't matter. The Nexus 4 is not an LTE phone, and the update took away the ability to even put it on LTE.

    Technically, the Nexus 4 is an LTE phone -- it's just not supposed to be. The update disabled it, but it's a simple matter to get it back operational post-update (there's a few threads here on it).

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

    I'm in st paul also - it must be a LTE test. I've stood across the street from a tower with perfect 100% reception and top out around 25. 5 up is definitely LTE - I don't think that is possible with H+.

    It's certainly possible. Dual carrier HSPA has a potential top speed of 42 Mbps.

    Top theoretical upload speed on HSPA+ is 5.76 mb/s. Fastest I've seen in real world is around 3.

    The best I've gotten with the Nexus 4 on T-Mobile prepaid is about 22 Mbps down (Lancaster, PA).

    Can't be that because N4 wouldn't have LTE on unless he went into the radio settings and changed it to use that.

    I see 8-15mbps;

    Speed test just gave me 32308 down, 7159 up with 12ms ping hitting a server 600 miles away. Of course this was before midnight, so will have to try mid day and see what happens.

    I've seen up to 19mbps download on T-Mobile with 50ms pings and I'm in a hspa+21 market. My tmobile pings usually under 100ms and speeds usually around 10mbps put my straight talk AT&T Sim card to shame. I get better overall coverage with the AT&T but barely ever see around 2-3mbps download and my pings are around 300ms

    I get this consistently in the Baltimore MD area. Maybe because I'm in the county area sorta (a little over the "city line"), away from the city where it may be more congested. I dunno. Or maybe T-Mobile loves them some Superbowl Champion Baltimore Ravens and decided to give the whole area a boost

    Either way I can't complain and could never understand ppl getting low speeds but hey its all in the area I guess. LTE usually has these speeds right? That's why getting a N4 over any other phone was a no brainer for me.

    Somebody has to explain to me what the purpose of ping is though.

    Ping is the time it takes data to get to the server and back.

    Higher ping causes higher lag in online gaming which causes all kinds of problems.

    It's not so bad when downloading apps or typical data use on mobile devices though.

    Does anyone know how or why my ping would be so bad on my straight talk AT&T Sim card? I have full bars and get about a 400ms ping and only around 2mbps download. When I put my T-Mobile Sim in I have under 100ms pings with only 2 bars and get speeds up to 15mbps. Both carriers are only hspa+21.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

    Straight Talk AT&T service seems to be a much lower quality service than regular AT&T service.
