    I have the nexus 5. I brought it and paid full price. My bill is $80 a month for unlimited everything. I was going through my phone and noticed that I have several access points that I can connect to for a celluar data connection. I have include a screen shot of the access points I can connect to. When I first got the phones. It was connected to the MetroPCS. But I don't have that so I change it. I noticed by doing speed test that different access points have different connection speeds. I don't wanna call TMobile because i don't know if these access points came with the custom ROM I installed (Paranoid ROM)

    I want to find the best access point that I should connect to. I live in the Washington DC Metro Area.

    Can someone from the community tell me what I should do? And thank you in advance

    I called T-Mobile and they told me to use T-Mobile US LTE. IDK why I have so many access points. I asked them why and they couldn't give me an answer.

    I know when I'm at home, I get 1 bar of LTE. So the only thing I can think about doing is through all of the access points and seeing which one have the best coverage in my area. This seems strange that they can't give me a straight toward answer to this situation

    These are my speedtest in Bethesda, Maryland at this time. This is using the T-Mobile US LTE APN. These are the best speeds I've had since having T-Mobile

    Hi IHaveAnAndriod, did you mean to include a picture with this post? It sounds like you did, but no pictures are showing up.

    Those are APN settings. Those settings are needed in order for the phone to be able to access data and send MMS. They came with Paranoid ROM.
