I've been having issues in various places. My phone shows full bars but the internet speed is not usable whatsoever. Calls go through perfect. This is occurring in zip 11590, Westbury long island, mainly around the mall as well as other malls or populated areas in Queens. I can't even load a web page. So many people in NY have switched to T-Mobile and I think the network cannot handle all the devices for internet. Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

I do not use T-Mobile, nor do I live in a state even close to New York, but I've heard from some people that T-Mobile has been slowing down a lot, mostly from not keeping up with consumer demand (especially in NYC). They seem to be adding too many users, and not keeping up the network for those users. So, I would say yes, others are more than likely experiencing the same issues you are.

I live in Brooklyn (11224) and work in Manhattan (10016) and i haven't noticed any problems. I'm at work now and streaming Youtube without WiFi and works fine. It could be specific area related.

Same issue around Downtown Brooklyn, the network is congested during rush hour and can't even load google... I guess they need B66 in NYC in order to increase capacity.

T-Mobile can use various different spectrum allocations for enhancing capacity in the greater New York metro. Unfortunately T-Mobile did not acquire any AWS-3/B66 in that area. So I'm guessing the next big capacity enhancer will be LTE-U/LAA.

With the crazy promos they are running plus their metropcs 4 lines for $100, things will only get worse if they don't keep up with the demand.

LTE-U/LAA will only be on small/micro cells so it won't have much impact.
