    What type of browser are you using and how strong is the signal?

    I've recently upgraded my phone to a 4G LTE phone and I got an LG Lucid from Verizon. I definitely noticed an increase in internet speeds since the change and I couldn't be happier with it. The guy at the shop told me LG has the most LTE patents so maybe that helps.

    My internet also seems to be WAY slow!!! I just got the Droid Razr, had the HTC Rezound before...internet seems to be much slower on this phone in general, it will take sometimes over a minute to pull a website up, or it will not pull up at all when tethering, I have to refresh the page at least once before it will pull it up, even in a 4G area with full bars...I have tried it now in several different 4G areas, Shreveport, LA and Ft. Smith, AR are the latest 4G area's I have tried...I even did a factory reset on this phone to see if that would help and if maybe one of my downloaded apps caused a problem...it has not made a difference...Is anyone else having this issue?

    I rarely am in a 4g area but my 3g is sometimes faster than my Wi-Fi. Try installing speedtest.net and fresh network. Both are free apps from the play store. Fresh network gives you a better-stronger data and phone signal. Speedtest tests to see how fast your connections are. I would test how fast your connections are, then run fresh network, then test again to see if there is any difference.

    There is also Motorola restore connection from the play store. I believe that does the same thing as fresh network.

    Thanks, I will have to try that one out. But I wonder how I would know which one is more accurate.

    Thanks for the input, but not only did fresh network not make my connection faster, but it made it almost completely unusable. Un-installed.
