Pittsburgh LTE network being murdered w iP5

Day 1 yesterday it was great. 5mb down 1mb up. Everything was instant.

Now MMS is flakey, tower coverage will drop and reset, text messages not sending within 3 attempts.

Anyone else notice?

Same for me outside Tulsa. Around 5pm Friday started to notice something wasn't right. By 10pm would get kicked off lte, when on lte was getting 55-685ms pings and speeds whopping speeds of 0.10Mbps down. No more than 2-3 mins of lte at a time then dropped down to 3g.
I called VZW Saturday morning. First phone call on new Verizon Iphone 5 was 411 and was dropped. Called again and got thru, csr seemed very knowledgeable and helpful, was first reported complaint in my zip code. I am 1.1 miles away from the tower. Had me reset network settings and that worked for 15 mins then back to same thing.
I went to the pathetic event that was the OU vs KSU game and had lte the entire way and all during the game. Great speeds no issues.
I return home to a 200ms 0.04Mbps lte before it dropped back down to 3g.
So I am fairly certain at the moment the problem is isolated to the tower I just happen to live by. It has worked fine the last couple of months but right as the Iphone 5 came out it has gone to crap. Can't imagine anything else other than it is completely overloaded. I guess its time to read the fine print because I surely do not want to get locked into a 2 yr contract living with a tower that may or may never get fixed.

You are you saying you have a iphone 5 or some thing about a lot of iphone 5 users are calling in?

I got one at about 9:30Am on 9/21 and took it back. ( I would have sold it if it was the AT&T iP5.)

I had a issue like this:

That and I was planing to sell it, but it did not work out. So I took it back, the end.

I have an iPhone 5 on Verizon. LTE is virtually unusable.

You may need to take it back or sell it then.

You can look at the verizon review I made to see if the issue I had is the same as yours with speed. And I think AT&T just put out LTE in your area so you should tell them if they don't fix it. then your going to AT&T.

P.S I did not make the iphone video. Just showing a issue is all.

Lol, sounds like their network might need more reinforcement Its good though, never hurts for them to add more bandwidth to a network.. Even with the share plans

I don't think you understand.

I just did a speed test and it was 6mb downstream.

That's incredible to me.

I lived on ATT 3G (sub 200kbps avg throughput) since the iPhone 3G.

This is a huge upgrade and well worth it.

I've bitched to ATT for years at how shitty their service is.

I'll take some initial destruction of the network if it settles down. I can also use voice too without it dropping after 10 seconds. This is magic to me.

I am sorry ATT did not work for you, but if your really having a issue. Don't just sit there and wait for it to be fixed. I know when I got my Droid razr back in 2011. If I just let it be. I would have had 4 hour battery life, 4G that does not hold and when it did it would run at 600kbs. Call's droped and over heating.

I have never seen under a 1mbs on AT&T 3G before.( I have had over 4mbs most of the time and up to 12mbs max on the download.) With Verizon 3G Avg 300-900kbs DL. I am not seeing that kind of slow down with verzion 4G LTE and I live in one of the first AT&T and verizon LTE markets. So I think your iphone may have a 4G issue.

If you keep on having the issue. Then you should make a video and upload it to youtube.

P.S Good luck, hope it's better than mine was at getting any issues fixed.

It's fine. Pittsburgh is a third world country when it comes to technology.

I'm impressed we have electricity and even an Apple Store.

Well I will likely be moving into a area that's more like a forth world country.

I'm impressed that I get and have been getting AT&T and Verzion LTE yet t-moblie has 2g over my home. That and we don't have a apple store.( Got to go out of town for that.)

Any way good luck to you and I hope it's better than AT&T was to you.
