Sorry, by Build Out I mean that T-Mobile is currently upgrading their network and transferring HSPA+ over from AWS, which requires 1700mHz for the download and 2100mHz for the Upload (I may have that backwards), to 1900mHz for both. It will be cleaner and faster with about the same amount of signal penetration. So far 1900 is up and running in a few places but not widespread yet to my knowledge. What does this mean for you? Well if you have the Unlocked version and you are somewhere without LTE(most likely you are) and 1900mHz HSPA+ (also a good chance) then your data would be on Edge. At least this is in line with everything I have read. I could be missing a piece here but the Unlocked version is basically the AT&T version (it is 100% compatible with AT&T).
