    I'm giving T-Mobile a try right now with a Nexus 5 I picked up on Swappa. Personally I don't mind paying for one month of service or what ever part of a month I end up using. And so far the service in my area, Detroit Metro, has been decent. I'd recommend trying their network by picking up an unlocked device or T-Mobile branded one on the cheap.

    I tried T-Mobile and returned it on day 14 ..they only charged me for days of usage and nothing additional...customer rep was great in my situation

    Here's more test. I tested for over an hour and still around my neighborhood here in Silverlake area of Los Angeles.

    Good speed except for random drop offs during the afternoon.

    Looks like you are getting throttled on some of those tests :p

    Thanks for the results, I guess in your area you are getting much better speeds than I am at the western end of LA.
