    I'm on cricket (part of AT&T as an MVNO). It says 4G but it is the same speeds for me as LTE.
    Keep in mind, the nomenclature is confusing because of the way the terms 4G and LTE are used in marketing literature.

    In real world usage I am getting great uploads and downloads with no issues.

    There is in the settings section of CM11 an option to add a control switch for LTE. When you activate this you will note that you go from 4G to H or HSPA (spelling).

    It works.

    Run Speedtest. Remember, the speeds will go up and down based on various network factors. I got 28Mbps in SF on 4G on my One, and only get 3Mbps in NYC on the same phone, no change.

    H+ = Fake 4G (HSPA+)
    H = HSDPA

    As of late last week OPO phones using their actual IMEI on AT&T are getting LTE service. The OPO notification bar dos not (normally) indicate LTE for LTE service but shows 4G. For HSPA service the indicator shows H. Looking at Settings -> About phone -> Status -> 'Mobile Network Type' should show LTE.

    To see what your real service is, go to settings>about phone>status and it will say LTE if you are on LTE. The 4G is a rom based issue. Some roms show 4G, some show LTE. There, aren't real facts nice instead of all the misinformation posted above.

    Well, from my own experience, the OPO has a weaker signal than most phones. Did you have LTE on your previous phone where you are? Do you have the correct APN settings for your provider?

    You need to go to your provider store and have them check things out for you. I am not saying anything negative, but you need to read and learn a lot before getting into your phone settings. I do not want you to screw something up and I am not at all familiar with Canadian phone company settings. Your provider store should be happy to help you out.

    Most people report fewer "bars" but that is meaningless. Lte in fewer places or slower speeds in the same places means something. Fewer bars is pointless

    And, that is why I mentioned this. If he had LTE before, a weaker radio signal could be just enough to drop from LTE to slower connections.

    CM signal bars are a truer representation of actual signal strength. That's not the case with carrier phones.

    Speedtest is not a representation of LTE. The connection status in settings is the only true way to know what connection you have on an android device. I can have a huge variation of speed results depending on signal strength/distance from tower.
