Tupelo,MS--consistently faster speeds on HSPA+ than LTE


Tupelo,MS--consistently faster speeds on HSPA+ than LTE

I recently upgraded from an iphone 4s to iphone 5s.  My phone is showing LTE coverage in the area where I live and work (Tupelo,MS).  However, after performing several speed tests I am getting pretty slow speeds with LTE (consistently less than 5mbs, often in the 1-3mbs range).  I get better speeds when I disable LTE. I tried searching the forums/search engines for people with similar problems, but I didn't find any answers.


Is this typical?  


Anyone have any suggestions?

Hello jpballar,


I'm sorry for the issues you're having with LTE speeds. It's possible that the HSPA+ signal is stronger than LTE in your area, but hard for me to tell for sure. One of our great managers will be happy to look into this for you and go over your options.
