LTE network speed (ZC73045) has slowed way down the past couple of weeks

Hi Verizon!

I've been dealing with  slow LTE speed at home for a while now: sometimes (not often) the data conneciton is about 3Mbs/sec which is the fastest I've seen it, but lately it's been about 400-100Kbs. I don't understand why it isn't consistent.

I've taken steps to boots the signal in my location by installing an antenna on my house. The location isn't great, ATT & Sprint don't even work where I'm at.

Since I'm rural I wouldn't expect a heavy load at any particual time, but the only time the network is reliable is from 12AM-7AM. 

I'm grandfather on the original unlimited plan. I pay 147 a month.

Thanks, David

Reliable data speeds are paramount, codec3. We can help you troubleshoot. What steps have you perfomed? Have you powered the device off, then back on?

the best you'll see thru the network, whether 3g or 4g is 5-12mbps & as you're seeing, can be much slower.

Thanks  for the reply.  In addition to installing a 4G antenna on the roof of the house and a broadcast base inside the house I have cycled power on the iPhoneXR and reset the network settings; airplane mode too.  

Last 3 tests over a few days:

Thanks again!

Thank you for these details. Can you provide me a screenshot of what you are viewing for your speeds?  JasonC_VZW

codec3, It's not a problem that you're unable to provide us with a screenshot. Just tell us the upload and download speeds from the speedtest completed at http://spr.ly/6609EeSIX Also, tell us where did you purchase your antenna?

Hi, Community Manager, thanks for the reply again.

Yes, the antenna is a Verizon 4G Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home&Office - 700MHz Band 13 Repeater Kit with High Gain Panel/Yagi Antennas - Enhance Cellular LTE Data Signal purchased from Amazon.

My friend also has one, both work great! I'll post the speed test later today as I'm in the city just now where the 4G network is excellent.

 

Thanks so much!
