Unite Pro APN

I use the unite pro on my unlimited plus plan as my main internet since there are no other options where I live. It works OK, the only issue I have are speeds. I only get 1-3mbps with 4 bars of B17 LTE. If I go in the attic I can pick up B4 and easily get 50mbps. I was wondering if there is an APN out there that prefers a faster connection over a better signal. Any help would be appreciated!

Note: I cannot get buy a cell booster device bc of a T-Mobile tower by my house that uses the same bands AT&T does, thus causing the booster to shut down those bands because it's in too close of a proximity of the T-Mobile tower.

Hello @austin_spiller1998,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us on the Community Forums! I would be glad to assist you with this.

 

Upon further research, there does not appear to be any APNs that would help with this situation. However, you can try using your device on a 5GHz frequency, instead of the default 2.4GHz.

 

The instructions for controlling these settings are in the user manual. To obtain this, head over to our Device Support page. Select your devices make and model, scroll down, and select “User Manual”. It will be under the Manage Wi-Fi section.

 

I hope this information helps you. Have a fantastic day!
