    Was wondering who has the fastest data speeds for the iPhones with the best data packages to include those fast data speeds. Thanks for the suggestions:)

    My experience, if a location has strong T-Mobile coverage, then they're usually fastest. Understandable given they have fewer subscribers ergo a less congested network.

    That said, I believe coverage is still better with Verizon and AT&T.

    As with real estate, this is gonna be a case of location, location, location.

    Macrumors published an article a few weeks back that t-mobile now has the nations fastest LTE. I’ll post link if I can find the article.

    Chiming in on others...T-Mobile. Vzw still has the best overall coverage, but T-Mobile has the slightly faster overall speeds. IMO, stay away from AT&T. Their focus has been media bundling with their acquisition of dTV as opposed to network progression.

    Yea, less coverage. But they cover my area well (Sacramento).

    I will take coverage with more than good speeds than 'fastest' with less coverage unless OP asks the question as it pertains to where he lives than this is open to looking at it as a 'whole' not as you said looking at it from living in Sacramento

    Love TMO.
    Managed fleet of iPads & iPhones on Verizon. Worked on device team at ATT.

    TMO is killing it.

    Hopefully the 600 MHz will help T-Mobile, because right now they have no coverage in a lot of buildings I'm in. Until then I'm keeping AT&T.

    It really depends on your location, but T-Mobile is pretty quick here.

    The OPs post simply said

    "Was wondering who has the fastest data speeds for the iPhones with the best data packages to include those fast data speeds. Thanks for the suggestions"

    Never gave specifics on location, so my statement holds true. T-Mobile was rated as having the fastest LTE speeds in the first half of 2017.

    Disclamer: LTE Speeds will very across carriers dependent on location and coverage.

    T-mobile or even MetroPCS has the best speeds and data plans that you would be looking for. It really is all dependent on your signal strength though so if you have low signal, you’re gonna get crap speeds so you’re gonna have to see what the signals are like I’m the areas you frequent the most.

    You shouldn’t even be arguing (or debating). The person above you made a comment about speed which was directly related to the OP’s request. While coverage is absolutely relevant, it did not in any way, shape or form satisfy OP’s post. You come off as being unable to admit when you aren’t correct. So you go in circles trying to make yourself relevant.

    Some people just don’t know when to fold ‘em. T-Mo for the win! They’re great here in my area too.

    thanks for the replies folks. But when it comes down to download speeds who is currently the fastest? AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon ?

    Thanks again ✌️

    We just told you. Speed: T-Mobile. Coverage: Verizon. As long as your area is covered by T-Mobile service, there is no reason not to go with them. Just last week they announced an increase in their unlimited data cap. 50GB before you may encounter throttling. That’s amazing compared to the other 3.

    And why isn't sprint in this? Where sprint really works it is on par or surpasses the others. That is if we are only talking about speed

    In my area, and the surrounding area, sprint is the worst provider in terms of reception and speed.

    Also, T-Mobile is looking to buy them up.

    Well said, true fact and excellent point. This is the primary reason I left T-Mobile for Verizon. Sure, they have the fastest speed when there is a coverage for them otherwise the cheap price they offer is not worth it for any inconvenience occurrences.
