I think I see the problem: "The Leagoo Elite 5 smartphone supports 4G LTE FDD 800/1800/2100/2600MHz, W-CDMA 2100(I)/1900(II)/900(VIII)/850(V) MHz and GSM 1900/1800/900/850 MHz of network frequencies." The only compatibility this phone has with 99% of T-Mobile coverage is GSM 1900 and W-CDMA 1900(II). There is no compatible LTE band and unless you live in Myrtle Beach, SC the 850 will only be used when roaming. Your phone has the minimum necessary to work but not to work well. When you BYOD, you assume some risks an must understand the technological compatibility of the device you are bringing.

What type of phone do you have?

Its an android. Its from "Leagoo" (a company I found) and its an Elite 5. I confirmed from T-mobile before hand they said that it'll work. I mean it does but the speed sucks.
