Yup. I noticed it yesterday in Scripps Ranch (92131) area. I got 30.33 Mbps down/24.50 Mbps up, 49ms ping. I usually get 10-20 Mbps/1-3 Mbps, 500-1000ms in this area.

I was told by my T-Mobile Business Account Rep (I have my Local Direct Rep, not 611 Cust Serv) that there may be outages or lower speeds (2G) in San Diego County in the next fee weeks/months because T-Mo is updating/upgrading the towers (Cell-Sites)... Which I've also noticed while driving around!!

LTE in Carlsbad & North Encinitas!!!

I was driving Northbound I-5 when I noticed it near Leucadia, La Costa, and Poinsettia. It was 4G @ 7:30am, now it's 9:30 with LTE!!!

No network near Palomar Airport Road... they must be switching it now.

For the past week, I've been getting LTE in certain areas of Mira Mesa (notably by Target), but not around Sorrento Valley area. Also I was getting LTE in Del Mar today.

How can you be sure it's a 20 x 20 network? I thought it was be more like 10 x 10 at the most.
It's right at the max of a 2x5 network, but it is probably 2x10. Have you gotten over 40mbps? If not, then it's 2x5.

It's not 2x20. No network has it up yet.


Can you go into the network info screen and post what spectrum is being broadcast to you right now?

Spotty LTE coverage at Fashion Valley mall, especially as you move away from the 163 freeway. However, was able to get 34.6 Mbps down and 23.6 Mbps up. Fastest I've measured so far.
