    In the exact same location I am getting 36 down during mid-day. Very impressive speeds.

    Penetration is the same with LTE, maybe slightly better. Difference is minor.

    Good to see there are some good results. I ordered a GE S4 last night and will be using it with tmobile's $30 unlimited text/data 100 minute plan.

    Does anyone know how voip call quality is on the S4 in general and over LTE specifically. My N4 was never very good in that regard and it was useless of hspa+

    On talkatone it's decent. Maybe groove is better?

    Also the antennae seems to be a bit better.

    Good to know. I have been using the paid version of grooveip. Works great on wifi as long as I have the proper echo cancellation settings for the N4. There was a huge delay with att hspa and the lesser reception of tmobile makes it completely unusable.

    You should definitely do better than that! Stand right on that traffic light light island on 22nd. That's the sweet spot

    I was sitting in my car right across. I think it was related to the time of day.

    Are they releasing that for the entire city?

    Groove ip did not work for me, talkatone worked just fine with no adjustments to the settings.

    Interesting. I am going to wait and test grooveip once I get my S4GE (since I have the pay version). If it doesn't work I'll try talkatone.

    I'm on the $30 pre-paid unlimited text/data 100 minute per month plan. Good if you are like me and don't make voice calls very often.

    If you work in an office or have constant access to wifi, this is the best way to go.

    That sounds like a fantastic deal. The speeds are LTE right? And I usually waste 110 minutes so how much do they charge per extra minute?

    They charge nothing per minute but unless you live in a strong LTE area the voip is gonna be weak. Hspa+ doesn't work that well with viop.

    Lte in nyc is smoking fast and works super with voip.

    I don't really have strong enough lte here to use voip over data. I have a google voice number and I have it set to forward calls to my cell number. If I am on wifi I answer it with grooveip, if I am on cell data grooveip turns off and it just goes straight to my real cell number.

    The only real downside is that when it comes in on wifi there is a little delay when I answer as technically both dialers are ringing but the grooveip dialer supercedes the cell dialer. An inelegant but effective solution.

    I pretty much just give out my google voice number for business things as it accepts both calls and texts and I use my real cell with friends since they are the ones sending me mms which doesn't work with gvoice.

    LTE speeds, but in Los Angeles so far, I'm only getting about 8Mbps down, vs the 20Mbps down I got from AT&T. Getting about 8 up from both, though. Not clear if I need to complain about speeds or not, this is about what I got when I was on an HPSA network.

    Additional minutes are supposed to be 10 cents each

    You gotta give it to tmobile. If you are in an urban environment, the lack of building penetration is worth the speed and low price. The ceo was on bloomberg today and he clearly understands what has to be done to retain and to lure people away from sprint, Verizon and AT&T. This company is gonna win....

    I hate my service with tmobile but I won't switch back to Verizon.

    Does anyone know if I can somehow refill my minutes if I run out for the month on the $30 plan? Just curious it would be good to know.
