Who even has T-Mobile coverage that good in their area? I sure don't. I get 4 Mbps tops.
I get 5mbps near home, 10mbps near work and 18mbps near my buddy's house Smilie

Not as fast as the GS2. (21Mbps vs 42 Mbps) Otherwise a solid deal.
42 Mbps?!? Is that really possible? Man, I am outta touch with cellular technology!

Where I live I only have DSL service available (no cable service, no Uverse). I am on the fastest DSL speed available to me from AT&T. They charge me $50 a month for UP TO 6Mbps. But they only promise 3Mbps which is what I usually have. Mad

Is it possible to use a cellular company as a whole-home ISP? We use tons of bandwidth with all the streaming video/music.

Is there a better option?

no way. Unless you use 5 GB or less a month. multiple people have no chance of staying under that limit. and the latency would be horrific

Eventually, but not yet. Maybe when they come out with 5G in 2020?

I agree with Holysmoke. Cell bandwidth is fine for watching compressed Youtube and talking on Skype or other VOIP, but not to replace DSL or cable.

They're OK in town for me but even a few miles outside and the signal goes to shit. Data service while on Interstate travel in and around Minnesota is really lacking with TMobile as well.

If I currently get 17 Mbps down with an S2 on $30 Monthly 4G plan, would I continue to get 17 Mbps down with L9?

21 Mbps HSPA > 17 Mbps??? is this logic correct?

Or does the S2 have a superior radio? I know it is 42 HSPA but since I never see above 17 Mbps thinking of switching.

And dont buy this phone thinking of a return. I returned the pathetic Exhibit II and it took my credit card company disputing charge and 45 days to get money back.
I have gotten 22 Mbps multiple times with my GS2

I would welcome anything over the pokey Virgin Mobile data speeds, but for $25 a month I'm good... but this does look like a nice deal!

I agree, tmobile is extremely spotty. fortunately I live in an excellent coverage area but when I travel, it truly is bad

I guess the theoretical max of LTE is 300Mbps. Not sure about real world consumer experience.

Yup. Minnesotan here, too.

In reading some of the tech reviews they say that there is no voice dialing feature on this phone, even with a BT headset.
Does anyone know if there is an app that will provide it?
Thanks!
