    I'm making this thread for the sake of argument.... i want to see GSM BYOD speedtests in comparison to what speeds we already have on CDMA quality. i need to know if its worth the money to shell out a couple hundred for a GMS phone + lose my $55 unlmtd promo plan for supposedly better service and faster speeds

    please turn on your GPS when doing your speedtest and post a screenshot of your speed and location.. also mention what phone you are using

    GMS BYOD phones only

    Hmm so the original metropcs customer gets 1mps average on 4g well the case for my family and friends, while byod gets this amazing speed? :( but now I am tempted to do byod instead lol kinda disappointed, what about you guys? And thanks for the post.

    As I said before my hspa speed on tmo (before the lte rollout) has been many times faster then the lte speed on the lte metro phones.

    This is a hspa screenshot, nexus 4 on tmoble, basically what the byod metro is.

    Your definitely gonna get your money's worth especially here in Palm Beach, Broward & M-Dade... They also have some good plans with the spectrum here after the combine where most places won't be able to have

    CDMA vs GSM is no contest

    Although my LG Motion isn't a GSM device, it was running on T-Mobile's 4g network (my speed test server even said hosted by t mobile) when I was in Albuquerque, NM about 6 weeks ago, so I believe this can be included:

    Since bringing my T-Mobile Galaxy S4 to MetroPCS, i usually would hit download speeds between 6 mbps to 9 mbsp. The speed has increased a little in the last few tests I've done. I went from a 3G to this one, so I don't have Metro 4G speeds to compare it to.

    The most I've gotten in the Miami Lakes / Miramar area has been 18mbs down, and I bought the s3 directly at the store. Maybe the signal isn't as strong out west over here, but I haven't seen this kind of speed on my phone just yet.
