    Hi guys so i've been doing a little test for a week after my friend showed me he has been getting over 70mbps on T-Mobile. So Maximum i get at/near home is (5-10 mbps) and at other places it ranges from (7-15 mbps.) I'm pretty sure that isn't normal what should i do?

    edit: i usually have full bars and live in a semi big city

    Remember that AT&T and Verizon never claim to have anywhere near those speeds. They tell us to expect within 5-10mbps or so on LTE.

    Yes, TMo's network is fast, but that's all they have going for it. AT&T (and Verizon) are more reliable and have far better coverage nationwide.

    I wouldn't call 7-15 mbps of LTE data speeds slow or not normal.
    Various locations, tower congestion and times will vary with speeds no matter what carrier you're on.
    Its nice to see 60-90mbps and its more for bragging rights but when it comes to normal everyday use you wont be able to tell much difference if you're connected to a tower pulling data at 10mbps or 60mbps.
    Your facebook, emails, videos, twitter or usual apps will function the same and not much of a difference.
