    Default northern NY/NJ 4g users happy?

    ive recently bought out my Sprint contract. i managed to get a galaxy s4 on release date and in 8 days my 4g indicator never went on. im currently trying out verizon and its super fast but also expensive. i usually go over the 4gb and have been very curious how people feel about the tmobile coverage. i work on the upper west side and live in jersey city nj. i rarely travel out of the ny nj area. can anyone chime in and tell me if ithey are happy with their current coverage and speeds in this area? im really looking to save some money and have unlimited internet. thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Ok a few things, First true 4G LTE on Tmo is not in the metro area. When it will be is a whole nother question. Tmo though uses HSPA42+ which is best described as 3.5G.
    Yes it is not true LTE, that said it's usually very close to what vzw has for LTE at the moment. Usually somewhere in the 20+ dl. In the area you are using the S4 it should get this regularly. That is depending on the building you are in. HSPA+ and LTE are both in either the 1700 or 1900 frequencies.
    I will say though that Tmo is pushing now to get LTE out faster than anything Sprint has been doing. Best I can say is get speed test app and test your speeds. It might be good and will only get better.

    Good luck.

    My only experience is using an AT&T phone on T-Mobile so I don't have the 1700MHz band. It's probably not a good idea to switch if that's what you're using.
