Are you serious?
Anyone else intrigued that T-Mobile is so blatantly lying in their advertisements? And how have they not been sued/ fined yet? I'm not talking the whole "what is 4G?" debate, just that AT&T factually has a far larger HSPA+ network than T-Mobile, and Verizon's LTE is either larger than T-Mobile's HSPA+, or just about to cross the line.
I also found it interesting that they have videos on their web site showing an SGS II going against an AT&T iPhone, Sprint iPhone, and Verizon iPhone, which is obviously a flatly false comparison, as comparing an SGS II Skyrocket, SGS II, and HTC Rezound or DROID RAZR would be proper comparisons. Not to mention that to be fair for a large part of the country, they would also have to show T-Mobile using GPRS or EDGE while the AT&T iPhone is pulling 5mbps on HSPA+. That would look just great.
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.

LTE has arrived. The third carrier in Las Vegas with 10x10 LTE coverage
Coverage will expand to 100 million LTE pops for the first half of 2013, with the second half of 2013 expanding to 200 million POPs covered. Release 10 LTE (2×10, 2×20) will be better performing than all other competitors.
T-Mobile USA. “This year, we’re stepping on the gas again. We are making continued coverage improvements and launching an advanced LTE network
No carrier has told more lies than AT&T, go back to that thread and examine their lies.
My favorite: "iphone 3GS tether will be out by the end of summer 2009".....nevermind that came nearly a year later in June 2010! LOL, pathetic
All I can say is my buddy's tmobile phone always had better speeds than my iPhone 4 on AT&T. Much faster speeds so tmo ain't that bad. I wouldn't say they have the largest 4g but the places they cover they cover them well and efficiently.
Speeds from my HTC Sensation The last one is Roadrunner-Way to impress, Time Warner
There's already a thread on this:
ATT claims they have 'enhanced backhaul' in reference to the above post. It's clear that T-Mobile no longer has the largest 4G network and should stop advertising as such.
'enhanced backhaul' with at&t still is slower than most of t-mobile's HSPA+. And t-mobile's HSPA+ is technically faster than at&t's LTE in markets where at&t is spectrum limited. How many 21 Mb or even 42Mb HSPA+ phones do they sell? Rare.
The point is that T-Mobile doesn't have the largest 4G network. AT&T or Verizon does, depending on how you define 4G. I'd say Verizon does, although by T-Mobile's own definition, AT&T does. Within the next year, it will be undisputed, and Verizon will have the biggest 4G network of any kind.
AT&T is deploying LTE with EB. AT&T's LTE is just as fast, if not faster than Verizon, except for the fact that it doesn't cover much right now.
The main question though is should At&Ts HSPA+ network be considered 4G? I have done speed test on iPhones at the local At&T store and also the apple store and only saw numbers a little over 3mbps, when I was in a standard 3G 7.2mbps area this past weekend I was able to almost hit 6mbps. I did test on those iPhones in areas with EB which most of Houston is covered with only select few areas not being covered even though their is high population there.
Their customers know the difference. T-Mobile customers are jumping ship like crazy.
