    Ever since t mobile released gdr2 for the 8x, I have experienced very slow data/network speeds. Around 0.20mbps both ways when in the same area I have always gotten higher than 15-20mbps. A temporary fix is to restart the device, but after a few hours it goes back to being slow.

    Restarting it every few hours is not a solution, you should never have to restart a device ever.

    I'm doubtful that others have experience the same thing, t mobile support is being a pain pointing me to the update page as if that really helps fix anything.

    0.20 mbps is completely unacceptable, even if a restart temporarily makes it faster.

    Any ideas on how this could be resolved? Rather than saying "just reset the device".

    Do other people who have T-Mobile have similar issues with data speeds on their devices when they are in the same location as you?

    Is T-Mobile doing any kind of tower maintenance in your area?

    I would first check the items above to rule out a problem with towers/service in your area.

    .. that, or you might also want to check your APN settings.

    There is nothing wrong with the cell towers. It isn't an area specific issue for me.
