    Holy **** 3G is live in Philly!!!

    Tip to u guys our city of brotherly love, 3G just got turned on today in our fair city and let me tell you, it's a good day for our city, right now I'm im getting 800-1000kbps download and 200-300kbps upload in my bedroom tethered to a TM506 via USB when I was only getting 100kbps download yesterday. And this is only a $5 a month T-Zones account , it's a really good day, Phillies blow out the Mets, Eagles go 38-3 and T-Mobile shows us some HSDPA love Run don't walk down to your nearest T-Mobile store and $159 and 10 minutes later, you'll be in heaven bliss. Make sure you get the DCU-60 USB cable as well though, BT brings the speeds down to a ok, but not as good 400-500kbps

    I'll do some more testing in more areas tomorrow so let me know if you wanna know if your area has 3G, but I can confirm, Center City, West Philly,East Falls, and Manyunk customers are in a 3G zone

    I'm having just as much fun right now, I'm on the grandfathered T-zones plan with no blocked ports or proxy server to configure which makes mine the same as the people who pay $20-30 a month.

    But anyways, 3G is still up and it's kicking ***. Now how long do we have to wait for LTE to show up

    I wouldn't know. It's the same standard $4.99 T-Zones Plan. I just think that T-Mobile never set it to block ports on my account

    Where did you purchase the DCU-60 USB cable?

    Good for you guys. Some brotherly (or sisterly?) 3G love from T-Mobile.

    Can anyone in the Philly suburbs detect 3G? Just wondering how much of these metro areas T-Mobile is covering.
