    Great speeds guys. Is that normal you would you attribute those numbers to the S6?

    Speed is usually a carrier thing. Most phones can achieve the same.. Unless it's on a different band. Such as we could use band 12 on T-Mobile but an iPhone 6 or 6 plus on T-Mobile can't. So therefore can't get that speed.

    I know that. I was just wondering if you guys got better numbers than usual with this phone. I've never seen T mobile score that high

    I am so tempted to switch to t-mobile but the coverage is still a bit too spotty for me. I tried their test drive program where they send you a phone to try out for a week, and my god, I was amazed by the speeds.

    But good to see the phone is not having any issues reaching max speed

    I think if you have a phone within the last couple of years any brand for the matter that is able to connect to T-Mobile's lte network you will get good speeds. Here in Hawaii on my Sony Xperia Z3 I average in the 130MB download range now at my home located on the
    East Honolulu end of Oahu, Hawaii

    Hopefully, after T-Mobile is done with current refarming of spectrum and getting band 12 deployed we will all look forward to 100+MB download speeds with better coverage in the near future

    No kidding! I have AT&T on my phone and also a Verizon Mifi from work and generally get nowhere near these speeds in Boston area.

    Sometimes ATT will get up to 44 mbps but it's usually around low 20's. Verizon I am luck to anywhere near 20.

    Also take into consideration, there's much more traffic on Att and Verizon

    They do -- he just meant that AT&T / Verizon have more than T-Mobile.
