    Is there articles for when all carriers are going to get LTE in certain areas? I have not seen one but if you know of one I would be interested.

    Thank you guys.

    ----------

    I just read on the comments of that article that someone "spotted" LTE about 9 days ago in Miami Beach, wonder if t-mobile is already running LTE trials in some areas in Miami. I feel like driving to MB (I'm like 8 miles away right now) :)

    If TMo has refarmed on PCS, then it means that you will have LTE soon.

    I can't wait for LTE :)

    I assume initially it is going to be blazing fast just like it was with AT&T and Verizon and then gradually it will begin to slow down, but it will be much faster then the HSPA+ speeds we get now.

    I wouldn't even call the speed important. The lower pings make browsing more snappy

    Yes lower ping. It only reminds me when I used to have straight talk, my pings used to be like 200ms compared now to tmobile average of 80ms pings.

    Same with me, Straighttalk gave me horrible speeds (like 500kpbs on a good day) and like 200-300ms ping. With T-Mobile, I actually pay less and get ~5mbps and like 60ms ping (suburbs of NYC)

    When I went to Disney a few weeks ago they had good 1900mhz "4G" coverage so hopefully you'll have that in the areas that don't have LTE.

    Yup, i'm not surprised. MNVOs suck because you are way down on the priority list, since ST is essentially renting the network from TMo/AT&T

    It's supposed to be out soon. I've been hearing from people that LTE keeps coming on/off in Miami Beach.

    So if you're around South Beach see if you have LTE on your iPhone.

    Yes I read the same thing the other day about LTE in S. beach. I've been lazy I guess not to drive there. I'm only 4 miles away on the other side.

    I am getting about 8 in fort lauderdale but surprisingly that 8 seems faster than the 19 i got on 4G!

    But LTE signal is still very week since it just came online this morning.

    Maybe in the coming weeks once they have everything up and running, it'll improve.
