T-Mobile testing LTE in Kansas City?
Yes, this is a lot slower than the 42Mbps HSPA+ that the carrier does already offer in certain areas. But this is just a test and we're sure that when the service is turned on for real, the speeds will be higher. The server, for those keep track of such things, was in Wichita and the phone was on Band IV which covers the 1700MHz and 1900MHz frequencies.

Is Tmobile finally going to put a stop to the carriers monopoly?

Can't wait for LTE in Chicago. Please deploy by April so I can buy myself Galaxy S4 as a birthday present!

Kansas city is a speed demon's dream right now. T-Mobile LTE testing and Google Fiber, wow. I should just move there, get Google Fiber, and wait for T-Mobile to launch it's LTE network, then get a Razr X when it launches. It'll be a beautiful thing.
