Been stuck on edge for almost 4 days in southwest riverside county CA. Tmobile rep says they're working on towers and should be resolved in 72 hours. Getting between 50-100 kpbs down.

the chipset in the Note II isn't a car.

The chipset is called a HSPA+42 setup because that's it's limit. it doesn't matter if you have the phone sitting ontop of the tower with all the spectrum T-mo owns flowing through it. It simply cannot happen.

even under perfect conditions I can't image a Note II even hitting 42mbps, i would be surprised to see one hitting anything above 35mbps to be honest.

There is some good news though. Right now tmobile has the policy of if it breaks upgrade it. So if you live in an edge only area or you drop to edge from a former 4g area and your tower breaks you'll possibly get 4g or at least hspa (spectrum and bandwidth permitting) as well as a refarm. So for those of you with broken towers or getting bad speeds call it in. If a certain amount of people report it they send a tech to the cell site and swap out hardware.

Along this same line if you're area is slated for LTE and your tower breaks you get the LTE hardware at the cell site ahead of time.

I was on the phone with "tier 2" rep yesterday who stated to me that LTE is being rolled out and GN2 is LTE ready. However, she couldn't verify if an OTA update would be required. She did say that network disruptions should be expected due to the roll-out.

Just my 2 cents
