Anyone else having this problem?

Since I upgraded to 8.0.2, my 5S seems to have a harder time finding a Verizon LTE connection, and the signal strength is worse. This is in locations I frequent all the time.

I don't remember this happening with 8.0, so I'm wondering if I should go back.

I just got a iP6 on launch day and it does not seem any different to me between 8 and 8.0.2. about 3 bars now. However I did get 4 or 5 bars on old 4s and wife still does. (3g of course)

And you can go back to 8 for now as long as Apple is signing it. ipswdownloader.com should have the links to the ipsw files direct from Apple. There was a process Apple outlined when the 8.0.1 version broke it totally.

LTE signal strength seems about the same after upgrading to 8.0.2 on my 5s. However, the LTE data speed is much slower. I started a tread about slow LTE speed here https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/1792734/
