Hello,

Your 4G speeds generally depend on the area you are in.

4G LTE wireless broadband is 10 times faster than 3G—able to handle download speeds between 5 and 12 Mbps (Megabits per second) and upload speeds between 2 and 5 Mbps, with peak download speeds approaching 50 Mbps.

I hope this helps!

So these 2-3Mb download, with 5Mb upload speeds are not good?

That would depend on what you are using the 4G LTE data for and It would also depend on the device.
I have been able to get 100 Mbps on some areas.

I get between 20 to 35 Mbps

I live in a rural area that didn't have TMO coverage at all less than 5 years ago. I am happy with these results at these prices. Your speeds may vary depending on your device as well. This is a Oneplus 5 if I had a device that supports 4x4 mimo and 256 qam I would likely get better speeds.

Dont be fooled, for the last TWO MONTHS I have been getting garbage network speeds, living in the GD middle of San Diego. Mint support has changed my access point three times, with no improvement.  They have throttled my speeds even when I have used no where near my plan's download cap for high speed LTE. I feel dumb to have purchased 12 months (will NOT be renewing).
