    I'm in Portland and most of the time here on LTE AT&T is lucky to break 2Mb/s.

    On top of that there are times when I'll go seconds to minutes with no data at all, despite full bars, especially at rush hour.

    I'm thinking about getting a 6s for band 30 if it would bump my speeds.

    Does anyone know?

    Is this due to congestion on the network? I'm on AT&T in Orlando and it is TERRIBLE. I'll have near full bars and also zero data... high ping, sometimes times out trying to do a speed test. It sometimes is a bit better if I turn off LTE and use '4G'. Got a new sim card to rule that out and same results.

    It's definitely due to congestion. The question is, whether adding a single additional band makes much of a difference. So far band 30 is almost nowhere, nor are the phones. I'm definitely curious though.

    It's beyond frustrating... Orlando is so overrun with tourists year-round data really is useless with AT&T. They must have a special contract with Disney though since on-site there its extremely fast.
