Man...I went into a T-Mobile store this AM to help my mom sort something out...the rep saw I had an iPhone and he was on me like a bee to honey! Wanting me to switch over...told him I was locked to AT&T and that I had the iPhone 5 with LTE...that stopped him in his tracks.

All of the refarmed areas' speed tests I've seen so far seem to be limited to 21 Mbps HSPA+. Hopefully 42 Mbps HSPA+ will come later.
Their 1900 MHz spectrum is the same old [crowded] band that's been used for years. They're simply switching from GSM/GPRS/EDGE to 3G. In fact, there will still be a small portion of GSM/GPRS/EDGE left over 1900 MHz.
Anyone with a modicum of sense could take a quick look at their 1700 MHz 3G/"4G" network and see that with all of the subscribers loaded on that network, the speeds are still fast. I'm talking a 31 Mbps speedtest fast (yes, that's LTE-like speed).
So please don't compare T-Mobile's network to AT&T's congested and inefficient excuse of a network.
It's a great time to be a T-Mobile customer. Get on that unlimited data plan while it lasts!
