Angry hello wtf help please

Hello everyone i just came from a lg esteem on metro and finally wanted a new phone.So i live in boston where mpcs offers the byod so i bought the optimus g pro had it unlocked went to metro and got a new sim and activation.

So i boot the phone and i see i have metro service so its working but im on edge speed??? I asked guys at att and metro reps if i would get 4g with this phone they all said yes im not getting 4g i pulled the battery and sim nothing still on edge,will i eventually get 4g once metro and tmobile are done with merging there networks,or am i screwed.ive looked around the web but havnt found much info and i do usually search before asking.

Any answer would be appreciated thank you

You've probably already checked this but do you have a setting on your phone for network mode? I have a different phone altogether and just kinda stumbled across your question. Anyway on my device in the settings at data usage > more > mobile networks > network mode > LTE. Your setup may be a little different but its just a thought.

If not that, I'd wonder if you are getting the advertised coverage. Here, TMO claims 4G where I'm at but you're lucky to even get Edge in reality. Different carrier but perhaps a similar kinda deal. Hope that's not the case.
