Slow MMS download

Downloading MMS messages has been slow recently. It takes over 5 minutes to downloaded a simple MMS with a picture or any message that is part of a group conversation. I'm using the Google Messenger app as my default texting app instead of the stock Messages app. My LTE speeds are good so I can't figure out what could be wrong.

Help is right here, front and center ulira001! May I have you test the MMS download speed using the stock app so we can compare performance. Also, may I ask how much available device memory do you have? If you can update us with the stock app in comparison to the Messenger app then we can assist.

Thank you…
