NYC T-Mobile customers, are you seeing 4G LTE pop up?
Over the past few weeks, we have been seeing blips on the radar indicating that T-Mobile’s LTE network in New York City is slowing getting turned on, but with no official announcement by the carrier.

Indeed, New York City is not officially expected to be announced until sometime later this summer, but as their sites around parts of the city go live, it appears those with the right equipment are able to hop on and enjoy a trip on the fast lane.

Those that have been paying attention have noticed the 4G LTE appearing in their signal notifications and speed tests have been seeing downloads as high as 15Mbps. Parts of Brooklyn have seen it apparently, and below, one guy is checking it out in Flushing, Queens.  We also added a second video from Astoria, New York where the speed tests are approaching 30Mbps, test-after-test-after-test.

Let us know if you are in the New York City area and able to pick up T-Mobile LTE.

Patiently waiting for LTE to come to Chicago within the next three weeks. Love those upload speeds though.

The HSPA+ 42 speeds are fast already, but LTE is faster, steadier, and has better upload speeds. :)

I had LTE pop up on my phone for the first time in Chicago. I was in the Lincoln Park area. I got about 19 Mbps down, 11 up.

Unfortunately it disappeared when I left the immediate vicinity of where I was at that time. But hopefully it launches soon!

Yes it is live in parts of Queens and Brooklyn. And in the subway in Manhattan.
