Let me settle it; neither carrier offers true 4G, and neither does Verizon. 4G as defined by ITU calls for 100 megabits in motion and 1000 megabits stationary. None of them, not even Verizon, meet this spec--not even close. So you are having a fool's debate here.

I still think tmo is looking for another exit strategy.
I usually support government regulation, but It is unfortunate that the government over-regulated and killed the AT&T/ T-Mobile Merger
The best explanation of the pricing nutiness in the industry.
Why Sprint and T-Mo will always suck.
The only way to end the pricing insanity is to eliminate contracts and subsidies.
I want Wifi calling on AT&T.
If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.
Even without the iPhone, with limited dt support, I am surprised tmo hasnt rebounded better and become more driven at turning things around.
The one ad isn't enough and I don't know anyone who would sign a contract when bringing their own phone.
Also, VZW hasn't even fully deployed LTE. In my market, there are areas where only 1 in 4 towers are lit up with LTE. And they are still faster than T-Mobile. Think how it is going to be when they finish deployment and add their AWS spectrum.
Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, for example, they claim HSPA+, but the network is so bogged down the end user only gets 3M/sec max on AT&T. T-Mobile, meanwhile, can download 15-25m/sec on their HSPA+ network, in the same location.
T-Mobile should just change it to "America's largest 4G network, that actually works" and then they would be correct.
I have to agree. I was in NYC a few days ago clocking 10 to 15Mb down 3Mb up during rush hour in times square.
