In Stanford, California for a conference and wifi tether with T-Mobile 4G works amazing!!!
Ok, I live in Suburban Chicago. I connect via a T-Mobile G2. I get HSPA+ most of the time. if not that then it reverts to EDGE. 95-99% reliable outside. about 75% reliability indoors. I have an unlimited data plan with 400 sms/mms messages. 600 minutes Family Plan for voice.
I go through about 2-3gb per month in data and thats mostly just on the handset. it can be even more if i tether.
very straightforward ordering process, i walked in told them what I wanted and they explained everything pretty throughly for me. anytime I have had a problem customer support is very helpful in getting it solved.
My family is from rural Iowa so I lose service when traveling to see them occasionally. it will go from 0 bars to 1 bar but I'm fine with that b/c I get to visit more and I don't talk on the phone hardly as it is.
