Somebody turned the right knob today because I got 4G LTE! Speedtests:

Re: Somebody turned the right knob today because I got 4G LTE! Speedtests:

4G LTE was back on at my office today.  Speeds were slightly slower than the original picture I posted, averaging about 1.5-2 Mbps download.  Uploads are still dirt slow, 0.1-0.2 Mbps.

Here is the updated speetests after my phone got the Update that was recently pushed.  These are all from my office.  Better download speeds.  Still pretty crappy upload speeds.

I thought reception was better when I first got the update I received 4G at my house which had never happened before.  But the next day and since, back to only 3G at the house.  So not sure what that was about.

Since the update, I have gotten 32 down and 8 up when I am near the cell tower....  My office is about 2 or 3 miles from there....  Though I'm not sure that it's the same tower I'm picking up at the office, since I've also instances where I had no 4GLTE on the same day when I still get really fast speeds near that one tower....

download a app called opensignal..you can pull up a map that will show you which tower youre connecting too. also understand that you can be pulling LTE from one tower while your voice is actually kicking off of another tower..odd i know but not unheard of.

Cool!  Thanks fireguy.  I will try it at work on Monday.  I'm curious where my office signal is coming from.
