I was looking at the gsmarena specs page for the one s and it showed no 1700 band

I'm a little confused as to how fast 3G or 4g is because sometimes people call it 3.5g for tmobile. Can someone break it down real quick for me in terms of real life kb/s? I was thinking about the one x as well and someone over there said they got 3G speeds with a certain type of microsim.... Even though it doesn't have the 1700 band. Thankssss

The one X gets 3G on T-Mobile in some California markets and that's it. The One S on T-Mobile has the 1700 band. T-Mobile does not have 4G either, it's 3.5G. It is a 42mbps phone and in Chicago yesterday I saw speeds of 20mbps but 42mbps HSPA+ isn't in every market yet. In areas without 42mbps HSPA+, I get speeds around 6mbps.
