Developer unlocked Lumia 920 running on T-Mobile US with strong download speeds

Windows Phone Central forum user KoukiFC3S has managed to get a Lumia 920 running on the T-Mobile US network (reportedly making use of 1700MHz). Purchasing the developer unlocked device online, it was possible for a new account to be created with the carrier and the device to be used with some promising results.

Publishing a number of screenshots on our forums, KoukiFC3S was able achieve download speeds just shy of 9Mb/s. The Lumia 920 speed test supplied is shown on the left in the image below, while our own 3G speed test on the Three UK network is on the right (using a HTC 8X).
