I think it really has to do with the network congestion. I live near Parkway Elementary and I never see LTE in my house. The only time I saw LTE was during the snow storm last week, and the week after Sandy where people lost power and couldn't charge their phones.

East Meadow is the cutoff and my house seems to be in a void on the coverage map.

Yea I was always in the cut off. Only when they first were testing in Nassau was I able to pick up even one bar. Now I have 4.

Scratch that. I am now seeing 5 bars LTE in Levittown by Best Buy and BJs.

I have never seen that before. Definitely an improvement in coverage.

I am in Western Suffolk at the moment (Wyandanch) and just got LTE. Eastern Nassau was terrible on 3G yesterday. Now I know why.

Edit: Speed test added

Starting yesterday I was able to get LTE west of Route 111. They're definitely rolling it out further. Before yesterday, I was only getting LTE west of the meadowbrook.

Question Wondering if anyone else's iPhone 5 switches back and forth from LTE to 4G?

Wondering if anyone else is seeing this:

I know when you make a call the iPhone 5 switches from LTE to 4G b/c at this time there is no voice calling over LTE.

However, for the last 2 weeks or so it doesn't switch back to LTE right away after the call, it sometimes switches back to LTE after being "off" (screen off but in standy), otherwise if I go to "Enable LTE" in Settings and toggle off then back on, LTE will come back.

Called AT&T, they are clueless, suggested that I go into a corporate store to swap SIM cards.

From what I see on other forums, this is happening in other AT&T markets and most of the time SIM swaps do not resolve the problem (neither does swapping hardware).

Funny thing is, I don't remember seeing this occur before AT&T turned on LTE in Eastern Nassau - my office is in Garden City and we've had LTE there for months and only recently am I noticing this.

I don't want to waste time and effort with a SIM swap or swapping my iPhone at the Apple Store, but since this is coinciding with a tremendous dip in battery life over the past couple of weeks (and I'm wondering if this constant switching back and forth between LTE, 4G and ocassionally Edge might have something to do with that), I may have to, just don't want to run around trying everything and anything.

thanks in advance!

It also happens to me and I live in another country (yes mexico has lte lol) I think this happens because the coverage seems to be strong (signal says so) but in reality theres probably one or two anntenas nearby very weak signals

I've noticed it goes back to LTE after a call when there is a really really really good antenna coverage like downtown not the suburbs (I've used a jailbreak tweak called signal 2 to check on LTE antenna avaliability)...or

apple really has to improve the antenna switching to be faster

Anybody notice AT&T cell signal fluctuating tremendously in Nassau/Suffolk over the past week or so?

This past weekend, I had "No Service" and 1-2 bars of LTE, 4G and even Edge in Massapequa Park (I ignored the same thing happening on Fire Island as I assumed it was an outlying area and may still have loss of service after Hurrican/Superstorm Sandy).

But I have also seen Edge pop up at work (Garden City/Uniondale) and home (Plainview) in addition to LTE signal increasing tremendously, from 2 bars to 4-5, just to drop back to 2 later in the day.

Anybody else?

No LTE in Great Neck LI. What's strange is, Jersey City where I work used to be a major dead zone. Just terrible as far as internet, dropping calls, etc. Now in Jersey City where I work, I usually get 3 bars and CONSTANT LTE. But at home in Great Neck, I don't have LTE. Which doesn't matter since I have wifi. But I'd love to see LTE in all of Long Island including where I live.

I live over by the Smith Haven Mall, no LTE. I have horrible reception as it is. Hate AT&T.

I just spent nearly an hour on an online chat with AT&T tech support, what a waste of time!

On top of not being able to diagnose not even solve my constantly fluctuating reception, the 2 different reps I chatted with contradicted each other concerning the status of the cell towers in my location.

What a joke!

That is nothing new. AT&T has had LTE service up to around Smithtown and East Islip for a while.
