I am NEt10/StraightTalk user on AT&T Compatible SIM - My Cellular Data Connection at home is great 4g. But at work not great sometimes. Switches between 3g and HSPA(4g) at time's. Sometimes I have to turn it on and off until I find a decent 4g signal connection. by checking email if sync in a few seconds good to go. If more than 3 seconds I turn cell off and wait then turn cell back on..
I use a app called inside information which display network information which tells me what apn I am connected to.
