For the last week in the Ashford Dunwoody area north of the Perimiter (30328 zip code near the Costco), the 4G data service has become unusable. It typically starts between 12 and 1 PM and last until between 230 and 3 PM (roughly). The 4G signal is still strong, but the "4G LTE" icon on my Moto X turns gray instead of blue most of the time. The hotspot also will not connect.
This actually happened a few weeks ago as well, but it appeared to resolve itself after a couple of days. This week it has been fairly consistent and predictable and is ongoing as of this moment. (I'm writing from a hardline connection right now!). Restarting the phone does not resolve the issue, and at some point in the last month I have lost the ability to force the conenction to 3G (CDMA is grayed out in the Moto X settings menu now so I'm flat outta luck).
No change to building/facilities that would be contributing - again, all works well in the morning and in the late afternoon after the issue auto-resolves. The problem does appear to be localized since when I drive out of the area the problem appears to clear up. However, that might also be a time-based correlation.
Regular phone calls work through the duration of the 4G data impariment.
The issue is currently ongoing as of 2:54 PM on Friday, 10/4/13.
