The crowd sourcing network specialists over at OpenSignal — a website that uses their own app to gather network data from users around the world — detected some interesting activity in their logs. Looks like T-Mobile has begun testing their upcoming 4G LTE network in a few new cities. The data was pulled from a few devices, namely, the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S4 (what’s interesting is the S4 is showing a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8960 CPU, not the Exynos Octa). Here are the 6 new cities T-Mobile is currently testing their 4G LTE, adding to the list of 3 we’ve known about for awhile now (Kansas City, Las Vegas, and their HQ in Bellevue).
- New Orleans
- New York
- San Diego
- San Jose /Bay Area
Real world download speeds are showing a respectable 25Mbps on average, with a upload of 8Mbps and ping of 40ms. Not too shabby, T-Mobile. Not too shabby at all. With T-Mobile’s new UNcarrier plans and blazing fast LTE, are any of you thinking about making the switch to Magenta in the coming months?
