Same "slowness." I had him install Radio Switcher and I matched by setting radio to WCDMA preferred but that didn't really improve results.
Apparently, T-Mobile uses the 1700 band for hspa+ as well, this phone doesn't have that band. Here is the T-Mobile bands, our phone, and the nexus 4.
T-Mobile offers*WCDMA*(UMTS) with*HSPA+*3G*voice and data over most of their network, using the 1700*MHz(AWS) and 1900 MHz (PCS) bands. Their*4G*LTE*network also uses the 1700 MHz (AWS) band. They also offerGSM/EDGE*2G*service in the 1900 band.
