I would like to know this as well. My wife and I live in Mountains Edge and are currently thinking about switching from Sprint to T-Mobile. We seem to be roaming often. I know AT&T users have no reception at our house. Verizon seems to be pretty good but I want the Nexus 4 straight from Google which means T-Mobile or AT&T.

I think we get good coverage from all the major carriers here. Sprint speeds (I have Virgin Mobile) have actually improved, average between 1-2mb down on 3G. WiMax still around 6-12 mb down.

The best I've gotten on 3G has been about 0.07mbps down and 0.02mbps up. Wimax I've gotten about 5mbps down but my house and work are dead zones. So I rarely get to use it. I'd be happy to see 1-2mbps. I tested a friends Galaxy S III and got 0.5mbps down and about 0.2mbps up on 3G with almost full bars. I'm pretty ready to leave Sprint. I'm sure anywhere is better than this haha

You're pretty lucky, then! I was including anywhere I've tested in the city. Granted my Evo 4G is pretty old, but my friends' brand new Samsung Galaxy S III should get better than 0.5mbps. That was tested more central, in an area that claims to have "excellent" 3G coverage.

To be fair, there's a tower pretty near where I work.

Got this speed this morning, average around good areas is around these speeds. Lower coverage places can be about 8-10mb down.
