    A few tests and band combos from Rochester Road and Barclay Circle. Rochester, MI.

    Your SNR is awful, that's the biggest reason your speeds suck other than congestion.

    Band 12 vs band 2. Both are enough to make me want to throw my phone.

    Not sure but I would assume it's the interference. I'm sure it will be bumped back to 10 MHz as soon as its resolved. For now, that's probably the best fix.

    Nah, I could go outside and have a -70 signal a block from the site. Everything works fine until 9am or so. Influx of downtown workers with the majority of users being AT&T customers. Smokes the 3 or 4 sites of 6c serving the area. Lots of people are constantly changing to Verizon though due to the issues in the downtown area. With lots of state buildings around I noticed the state is switching employees away from AT&T due to this issue. I wonder if this will have an impact on the FirstNet decision?

    Everywhere else in the metro area is great but AT&T has been sitting on their hands for a while there. Figured they could at least throw some antennas on their rooftop building in the middle of it all to help split the load up but that hasn't happened.

    Several of us report the area on the mark the spot all the time but the app immediately comes back about a known technical issue in the area. Been like that for a while.

    Understood, but you misunderstood what I meant by SNR, I mean Signal to noise ratio, if you look closely in your image, it's negative which is very bad. An excellent SNR would be 20-30dBm and a poor SNR would be -20dBm. SNR is the quality of your signal the phone is receiving and can be degraded due to interference, distance from site, or misaligned antennas that have their panels pointed too close together, or you could be in an area between sectors as well called a null, where both sectors signal can be equal and can cause the SNR to fluctuate rapidly going from negative to positive and switching between sectors, I know from experience and it sucks when you live right in the middle of a null, speeds are never great.

    No, I understood what you meant by SNR, I should have also followed up with the best SNR ever comment with that -70 signal.

    they been sitting on their hands for 2 years in my area...i have a att postpaid hotspot with 3xCA max speeds i saw was 20Mbps and thats only late at nite...during the day i get 5-7Mbps...i even put in a "ticket" in which they never got back to me to let me know whats going on

    5-7 Mbps isn't horrible speed, if it was .5-.7 then I'd be pissed. But 5 mbps is usable so idk what you're complaining about. Try having a .2 Mbps connection on 4G with a ping of >600ms

    Same logic, you have a last decade tech pushing 0.5-0.7 Mbps out of 21 Mbps. 5-7 Mbps on 3xCA is just as bad when the peak speed can often be 225Mbps or better under ideal radio environment.

    Okay, so first off that's not my actual connection speed lol, that was in a rural area with 1 bar. Under 3xCA, you should be getting quite a bit unless there are alot of users on the sector, then you get congestion, usable speeds are I'd say around 4 mbps, anything lower than that the carrier should upgrade the backhaul or the site with more bandwidth, better encoding technologies etc. 4G doesn't happen very often, but at least 2 mbps is usable on it. Then again, I lose LTE because it's a weak signal so 4G usually isn't too great either lol.

    Actually, this may be a backhaul problem as it sounds like there is plenty of bandwidth for more than 20mbps. Sorry AT&T isn't doing anything about it they're pretty slow so they'll get around to it eventually.

    Sometimes you can't just add backhaul to solve the problem. The speeds you get is also dictated by the equipments they use (including base stations, RRU or even the antenna). In addition, there's something called resource block scheduling, which is how each user gets a piece of the physical layer's resource in order for information to transfer, at a specific time. If that's filled up by users (congestion), adding backhaul won't help. And lastly, the radio interference from nearby RF equipments will also dictate the maximum speeds the air interface can push out. Aka SNR directly affects throughout. So there's a lot of factors that must be looked at instead of just adding backhaul.

    Hey at least LTE is 10x faster.
