    But this isn't exactly in Cincinnati...yes a suburb but Cincinnati only has
    10 MHz AWS E Block
    20 MHz PCS 2/3 bottom of B Block
    10 MHz PCS F Block

    Correct me if im wrong but there isn't enough AWS to run LTE in Cincinnati or the entire County it is in. Im getting LTE in In Butler County (A Cincinnati metro county). T-Mobile has AWS B, AWS E, PCS B (2x10MHz), PCS F.

    The tower is too far. Based on the screenshot the signal is really weak to non-existent

    Thank you for this! Keep us posted! We've been waiting a long time. It sucks to go to every other major city nearby and find LTE but you can't in your hometown.

    Yup, Cincinnati is in a different county...

    Butler County (West Chester)
    AWS non-contiguous
    B T-Mobile 5 MHz FDD LTE and HSPA+?
    E T-Mobile HSPA+?
    PCS non-contiguous
    C 30 MHz
    F 10 MHz

    Surprised Verizon didn't swap F for B

    Yea but our only problem is that downtown Cincinnati mostly likely wont see LTE until the 700 spectrum closes and channel 51 is off. So my guess is 2015.

    Butler County from what I have been told is the only county to be able to run LTE out of all of the Cincinnati Metro counties. Its the middle of the top three. All the other counties don't have enough AWS to run LTE. Please correct me if im wrong. Actually I hope im wrong...lol

    That is true. AT&T just picked up more AWS here that would have been great for us.

    First time I have posted.. I stumbled across this site while doing some research on T-Mobile in Cincinnati.. thanks to all that care enough to participate in forums like this..!

    Question... I am considering dumping Verizon and going with T-Mobile, mostly for the unlimited data plan before they raise prices.... We live in West Chester now but are moving to Over the Rhine in two months..... my concerns - all of the various phones I have considered in T-Mobile stores around Cincy (Nexus 5, Galaxy S4, HTC One) seem to have sufficient speed (over 4 megs per second) when tested on Speedtest app... but in the store, all of the HD videos that I try to stream look very 3G compared to the same video on my iPhone 5S with LTE. The same videos played on my Nexus 10 over home WiFi look high def.. with the same data speed as in the T-Mobile store.

    As a frequent Netflix and HBO Go user, would you recommend making the jump now before prices go up..? Does anyone out there have "field experience" in Cincy with these two streaming apps? I have been very satisfied with Verizon's actual service delivery, but their billing and lack of unlimited data make my streaming.... untenable. Thanks to all again and take care!

    You could just take over an old verizon unlimited data plan.

    Edit: if you want to try tmobile for yourself, get a SIM card and sign up for the $30 5gig plan. Your Verizon iphone 5S is unlocked out of the box and fully compatible with T-Mobile's network
