Sounds like poor AT&T data connection speeds due to your location.  Use WiFi when you can, otherwise there is not a lot that can be done.

Supposedly,when you see the H+ icon,it means you're in a 4G area! It's a lie. There is NO ATT 4G phones except for LTE phones. Go to settings,about phone,network type. It says,HSDPA. That's 3G! HSPA+ is nowhere to be found in ANY ATT phones settings.
Tell CS you want a refund for your fake 4G phone & service.

3G is UMTS. While HSDPA is not true 4G, it is an enhanced form of 3G. When on a UMTS connection, I typically get speeds of 2-3 mbps. When on a HSDPA connection, I typically get speeds of 5-6 mbps with peaks of 8-9 mbps. The stock rom will display H+ for both connections. I have found the higher HSDPA speeds to be sufficient for streaming through Netflix, while the slower UMTS speeds are not. Forget about using Netflix on Edge.

Bzzzzt.  Wrong.  The ITU ruled back in December 2010 that evolved 3G technologies can be considered 4G as long as they represent "a substantial level of improvement in performance and capabilities with respect to the initial third generation systems now deployed".

 

HSPA+ is nowhere to be found in the settings because it uses the same radio as HSPA.  No seperate radio needed as you do for LTE.

 

Whether you agree with it or not, HSPA+ is 4G as defined by the organization that defines the standard.
