iPhone Is there a tweak to get 4G that I'm 1 minute away from?

    If I drive 1 minute away, I have access to a new 4G LTE tower. But at my current location, I have the slowest 3G on the planet (0.07Mbps down). Since I can get LTE one minute away, is there any kind of tweak that can either stretch my signal length or spoof my location to allow me to use LTE? Thanks for any help.

    I have the same problem. One block away, I can get 40Mbps downloads on AT&T. I get home and I get 0-.60Mbps.

    I opened a data account on T-Mobile and get 10-20Mbps on LTE at my house.

    I'll keep both accounts open now, T-Mobile for home and AT&T for being away. This is on my iPad so that is why I have data only but the same would work if I used a T-Mobile phone sim.

    Sure, there's a hack for that.
    You just gotta go and pull that cellphone tower a little closer to your house and then you will get LTE signal and connect to 4G.
    Some questions here lately:rolleyes:......

    Or the OP can just move.

    I live in a "hole" that has never had dependable AT&T or Verizon signals since moving to AT&T for the iPhone in 2007. I tried Verizon for one of those years in 2011 and bailed out after exactly one year.

    T-Mobile does an excellent job on my 4S, my iPad Mini and my Nexus 4 & 7. All are on T-Mobile.

    put one of AT&T's signal boosters in you house (if they still offer those).

    Outside of that, not sure.
