I agree, I am in NYC and have been with TMobile since they merged with Voice Stream (started with them in Jan 2002) and I have no need to switch to Verizon or AT&T. I get the same if not better reception as my friends do with their more expensive plans. I just did a speed test sitting in the middle of my apartment on the second floor of a 3 story building.

I even got my friend to switch from Verizon to TMobile. I have never had issues with any Customer Service Rep. They have always been very helpful. Even the one that slipped and told me about a promotion that I was never invited to, but they had to honor it giving me and my husband brand new GS2 with $0 out of pocket and I was one month away from even getting my full upgrade discount.
Great post! You'd have LOVED the local news broadcast (DFW) when the new iPhone was "all the rage" and AT&T was touting their "4G" performance (how it was faster than T-Mobile)! She started up both phones; started their browsers; and surfed to the news channel's website.... well, she snapped right to the site on the Tmo phone.... but the AT&T phone? Crickets, only crickets... . Serves the reporter right.... imagine, believing her own copy!
