Default H+, not 4G LTE

Hey guys, I just rooted and installed the VirginROM (I like simplicity) on my S4 and the 4G LTE on the notification bar has been replaced with an H+...

I know it's basically another way of saying 4G LTE but I noticed that my signal (usually 100+) is at 90+. I go back to college starting Monday so I don't know how it'll affect me (horrible connection throughout the college) but I was wondering if there's a way to get the MetroPCS signal back up...

Just curious...btw, I only rooted and installed a different ROM on my phone because ever since I bought it, it would not stop rebooting at least 5-10 times a day. I thought it would settle but it never did. I rooted it, deleted unnecessary bloatware, but it kept rebooting afterwards.

Sorry for the paragraphs... any suggestions or insight on the 4G to H change? lol.

You might need to have your phone swap out for another 1, I havn't had that rebooting problem.

How long have you had it? If it has been less than 30 days, than you will not be charged.

HSPA isn't the same as LTE. However because AT&T and T-Mobile were slower than Verizon at getting LTE deployed, they started calling their HSPA networks 4G networks in order to not make themselves sound inferior, but in reality HSPA is actually 3.5G
