It also says it will use America's largest 4G network... T-Mobile doesn't have the largest network for anything.

There are two ways 4G is defined depending on who you ask. The first is by meeting the actual 4G specification for a 4g network, which all current US networks, including Sprint, miss by a long shot. The second way is by actually building out a complete 4th generation of a network, which regardless of the fact that it does not meet the 4G specification is truly the 4th generation of a carrier's network. This is how Sprint manages to call their network 4G. T-mobile, on the other hand, has neither built out a new network nor met the 4G specification. So, although their speeds on their upgraded network are comparable to Sprint's, their claims of 4G speeds are unfounded and amount to false advertising.

Sorta.  Since HSPA+ delivers 4G speeds on their 3G networks, they may be saying that is their 4G.  If that's the case.  They would have the largest 4G network

T-Mobile is fond of saying that HSPA+ is a 4G competitor, but the ad mentions both 4G and HSPA+. Surely they wouldn't confuse customers like that?
