Sorry, don't know the background. What carrier are you using? Have you tried another APN from someone that does report good signal on your carrier? Have you done any modifications via unlocking and rooting (like downloading and installing an updated modem for your network)? Have you gone on to the XDA forum to ask for assistance?

All that said, it should have worked right out of the box. If it isn't worth your time, return it and demand the refund. There are bound to be lemons from time to time, looks like you were the unlucky one to get a fruit that wasn't an Apple. :(

My signal is as expected for T-Mobile in my area.

My signal is exactly what it should be on both AT&T and T-Mob. I love being able to swap out sims without issue! :D

I haven't adjusted the APN settings on my Nexus 5. Did a speed test when I was out earlier and I got 35 mbps down and ~15 up on AT&T. Upload at first hit like 75, but I'm not sure if that is accurate or just a quick glitch.
