    What kind of data speeds would this HTC 8X get? HSPA? HSPA+? LTE?

    HTC 8x C620E Red Factory Unlocked 8MP 4 3" Snapdragon S4 Windows Phone 8 | eBay

    I'm in the market for one, but am basing my decision to get it or not on what kind of speeds it would get.

    EDGE only, based upon this chart, since the 1700 band is missing. T-Mobile US - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Frequency Band Protocol Class Spectrum Purchased Service Began Notes
    850 MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSPA 2G/3G n/a 1996 (2G) / 2012 (AT&T 3G) Not operated by T-Mobile. Competitor 850 MHz networks are accessible via roaming agreements. After the failed acquisition of T-Mobile USA by AT&T, part of the failed acquisition was a 7-year AT&T 3G roaming agreement.
    1900 MHz GSM/GPRS/EDGE 2G 1994 1996 Based on the original VoiceStream Wireless and other acquired operators' GSM PCS networks.
    1700 / 2100 MHz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G[59] 2006 2008 (3G), 2010 (Marketed as 4G) First carrier in the U.S. to deploy services on AWS frequencies (UMTS frequency band IV). Markets HSPA+ as "4G." Band IV AWS consists of the 1700 / 2100 MHz band pair. Data is transmitted upstream on 1700 MHz and downstream on 2100 MHz. A device must support both frequencies to access T-Mobile's AWS data services.
    1900 MHz UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+ 3G 1994 2011 According to reports from users, T-Mobile started to reapportion its PCS frequency (UMTS frequency band II) for UMTS service in some areas. Will be expanded during LTE upgrade.[60]
    1700 / 2100 MHz LTE 4G 2006 2013 Due to the failed acquisition of T-Mobile USA by AT&T, T-Mobile USA received additional UMTS frequency band IV (AWS) spectrum to begin deployment for LTE in 2013. Further AWS spectrum that will be employed for LTE was acquired from Verizon Wireless in summer 2012 as part of a deal involving Verizon's purchase of AWS spectrum blocks from several cable television operators. Band IV AWS consists of the 1700 / 2100 MHz band pair. Data is transmitted upstream on 1700 MHz and downstream on 2100 MHz. A device must support both frequencies to access T-Mobile's AWS data services.
