    AT&T LTE has supposedly been in Boston (and suburban outlying areas of Boston) for a year now. But when I traveled into the city with my family, there was no LTE coverage.

    Is anyone else experiencing this lack of LTE iPhone 5 coverage, in areas in which AT&T supposedly has coverage? Or is the LTE functionality in my iPhone 5 just broken?

    There have been some posts of needing to call AT&T and have them switch you over to a LTE data plan before it works. You might need to do that.

    I'm in downtown Seattle, AT&T LTE was released here about 3 days ago. Since receiving my phone yesterday I had not seen it connect to LTE once, so after trying all the normal resetting network settings, reseating the SIM card, etc I finally gave AT&T a call.

    I asked about "refreshing my network registration" which I had read about in another thread and the tech went through the process on his end, nothing at first then I tried resetting my network settings again (while on hold on another phone) and about a minute later LTE popped up.

    It comes and goes. Sometimes, it shows 4G and other times, LTE.

    When it is on LTE, it screams. With one bar of reception, I got 24.8Mbps down / 3.86Mbps up.

    So typical of AT&T, nothing just works. :rolleyes:

    I'll try resetting network settings on their phones.

    Never had a problem with AT&T in 5 years I've had them. Good luck

    I'm in Chicago and have had the LTE indicator on 90% of everywhere I've gone. It's decently quick.
