    Maybe just bad service area where you live. I'm in southern California and I get 2 to 3 mbps down but get 4mbps up.

    Some parts of south Florida are severely capped :( I live in Ft. Lauderdale, but speeds for me like that are normal cause I only have a 3G phone.

    Make sure you are actually in a 4g coverage area. I can't tell from the screenshot in the op.

    Does anyone know why below it shows the server connected to as San Jose CA?

    That's just the server it chose for the speed test. It should have found a closer one but its no big deal

    That's some good speeds you got there but to get a server closer just go tools>change server> & pick the closest one

    Hey man, I have the same problem! It can be at full bars but I get < 1 Mbps.

    I am in North Atlanta (inside the perimeter). Anyone else in ATL getting crap speeds?

    Im in Palm Beach,Fl & within the past maybe 2 months my speeds have been degrading it went from 5mbps to 3 or 4 now it's 1.7 . My guess is everyne moving to 4G with the LTE For All promotion. I know down here right now we're on 3mhz of bandwidth but I just can't wait till they start using all the spectrum available & then when they start reframing

    the more people in your area using metros 4g lte the slower your speeds will be. i go from 1.5 down to 600kbps but my 3g admire only got 120kbps down to about 20kbps so im happy i guess.

    I prefer to think of Metro's 4g LTE as 4g LiTE (light).
