    Okay, so whenever 4 g decides to actually work. I'm pullin numbers like this. However what really sucks is the other 99.9 percent of the time whenever I have 3g and I'm getting 1 maybe 2 mb download. Does anyone have else have splotchy coverage when on 4 g?

    I don't understand the problem here. 3g is significantly slower than 4g so that's normal.

    Good to hear:)

    Now for OP to answer. The difference in speed makes it sound like his phone switches to 3g since he doesn't get 4g there.

    There are so many variables that come into play with wireless data connections it could be one of 1000 different things. Distance from tower, how many people are on the tower and using it, problems with your device, problems with the tower, problems with the network....etc Most of which you have no control over, outside of moving to a different location (changing towers or getting closer to one). All LTE phones have various quirks when it comes to reception and data issues. 2mbps isn't too bad though, you should be able to do most things sufficiently at that speed, of course more speed is almost always better though hehe.
