Default Sprint vs. T-Mobile in CT?

Does anyone have experience with T-Mobile in central Connecticut or Connecticut in general? I'd like to find out some 4G speeds for them, as I currently have the Evo V on Virgin Mobile and wimax sucks. I plan on upgrading soon to the Nexus 4 on the T-Mobile $30 plan with 5gb of data.

Default Definately T-Mobile

I just switched to T-Mobile last month from AT&T. Best choice ever. (I too have the Nexus 4.) Although some of CT is EDGE-only, it's still blazing compared to Sprint's 3G (which I hear is awful). You can get 4G in nearly every moderately-populated city and for most of the CT interstate system. I have a friend who has Sprint, and he's pleased with his plan, but I don't know how happy he is with the coverage. Also, if Virgin isn't doing you much good, Sprint won't be any better - Virgin is just a MVNO for Sprint. You're already on Sprint.

I am quite pleased with both the speed and coverage of T-Mobile. It was a good choice for me.

EDIT: Haha, can't spell. Didn't want you to think I'm illiterate. I meant to put in the title "definitely." Oops :-)

Default Oh yeah, the speeds.

I forgot to mention the speeds. The slowest I've ever experienced on non-EDGE is 2.30 Mbps DL and .30 UL, and the fastest 22.34 Mbps DL and 5.31 UL. I would put the screenshots but I have to find them first. The average speeds I experience are north of 10 Mbps download and 2.30 Mbps upload.

Hope this helps.

Default Sprint!!

I don't know if this is too late, but I find the coverage in Connecticut with Sprint is phenomenal. There is a somewhat decent coverage of WIMAX, and Sprint has pledged to put a lot of 4G in the area over the next couple of months ("before 2014"), from what I've read.

Hope this helps!
