    iphone4s does not have LTE.

    So your saying the LTE is slower in your area compared to the 3G your iPhone gets?

    My iPhone 4 with 3G has a stronger signal and loads faster than my iPad 3 with 4G. One thing I did was turn LTE off and it seemed to speed up my 4G connection. I also found that in some locations I couldn't even get a cellular connection with LTE on.

    I have same issue

    My new iPad AT&T 4G signal is 1 bar where I got 3 with my iPad 2. And it isn't just an indicator issue. The actual speeds are slow and sometimes it completely stops. I've disable LTE but no improvement.

    I may visit my local AppleStore but I'm sure the signal there is probably 5 bars. This is frustrating because I absolutely love my new iPad except for this.

    Try deactivating LTE. Perhaps in your area LTE is weaker than 3G.

    In Settings>Cellular Data there is a toggle for "Enable LTE."
