Just means you are in a bad LTE area.
Why does it say 3G in the status bar on both?
Ran the test while on LTE then when he did the screenshot was on 3g.
It's simple really.
Are you sure you aren't just on Sprint?
That LTE speed looks like mine.
No problem with Verizon LTE here!
While I wish it could be better it is what it is:
You might be in an area with overloaded B13 and XLTE (B4) hasn't been deployed yet.
Piss poor verizon LTE speeds.
It happens sometimes in particularly crowded areas. If I can't get any throughout on LTE, I switch it off and can get reasonable speeds on HSPA+
My blazing LTE at home. This is a good day.
By no means am I a fanboy of Sprint however I used to get 3-4mbps on LTE for VZW but now that's what I get on 3G for Sprint. Most of the time I am in an LTE area averaging at 25mbps.
I do think that since I am on an MVNO (FreedomPop) and not the actual company there may be more bandwidth allotted to FP and with the PRL I have and that could be why my 3G speeds are decent.
Once Spark goes live in our area I will expect really fast speeds... Yay.
One thing tho. Sprint's call quality is terrible in areas with low signal on my dad's phone. I use VoIP so I don't need to worry.
How do I change carrier bands on my 6+? Thnx.
I've never cared about Verizon LTE having a larger coverage area because in my experience their LTE is slower than ATT 4G often.
and T-mobile is faster than both, at least in NYC. Just check the Sensorly speed test database for all three carriers in NYC.
This could be a good thing. Verizon is pretty expensive anyway, so it means you could go to a cheaper carrier like T-mobile and get better speeds.
If Verizon was bad in my area, I would dump then in a heartbeat lol.
With verizon only averaged around 5 to 10mbs of LTE. With Tmobile i'm always in the highs 30s 40s. I rarely travel so its a win win for me.
