Question about T-Mo Network
Hi all! I am a disgruntled and disillusioned Verizon customer who owns a Galaxy Nexus and really hated how Verizon handled it (on top of the many months waiting for it's release). I currently have a grandfathered Unlimited Data plan, with 700 minutes and 250 text messaging.
I am very much considering moving over to T-Mobile for the Unlimited talk/text/data. I am not interested in a MiFi tethering plan.
Since I am interested in the newly announced Nexus 4 that has HSPA+ 42, what sorts of speeds would I, on average, be looking at? For some background information: I do most of my mobile data usage in my car, mostly streaming music and GPS navigation. I do a bit of web browsing at lunch. Otherwise I am connected via WiFi at home and work. I don't do much (if any) streaming video over mobile networks.
Also, does T-Mobile do any unspoken data throttling? If so, at what point do you notice it occurring? I know they do for the tethering plans, but again I don't plan on going with one of those.
How do you like T-Mobile in general? Do they treat you well?
All researched data points to making the switch to T-Mobile worth it for my situation. It would be saving me money over my current carrier and plan while giving me more voice and text. I can live with less Mbps than my current LTE network if I can at least average 5 Mbps.
Anything current users can chime in with I would greatly appreciate it!
