Site Redesign

I'm posting this here an it can be moved, or deleted.

I'm a T-Mobile customer riding AT&T's backbone. Found that strange. Internet spotty all day if it existed. Cell goes no service and I've had enough. I go do other things and come back to 3-4 consistent bars of 4G LTE, but only speeds that top out at 200Kbps. Not a typo.

I read where LTE is a substitute for real 4G and will probably be most available until 5G becomes widely implemented. Then phone sales go up.

This website is extremely lightweight, and with the connection I have, it moves along effortlessly.

The other question is how they serve up 3-4 bars of 4G LTE that only produce a max of 200kbps? There's not a strong possibility of network congestion. The population is 928 or something.

I see no responses to you so far. I am not a Telco Mobility techie, but the fact that when you have strong reception (strong signals at 3 or 4 bars), but low bandwidth data throughput, implies "possibly" that either TMobile or ATT, or both, are throttling your data packets for some reason. It could be intentional, through some service level limitations/agreements, or it could be accidental, through a Telco equipment failure or programming error. I would contact T-Mobile and try to find out what is going on as a start, if you have not already done so.

I called. Tech had no explanation. I'm going with your contract terms stated above. IMHO, AT&T sucks.
