    Default Batter - Bad LTE Connection

    So I've finally realized that when I'm at work, I have really bad cell reception and that is killing my battery. Ideally, I would like to leave my cell connection on, but change it from LTE preferred to 2G/3G. Seems like it should be easy to trigger as my phone automatically connects to my work WIFI. I've downloaded a couple of automating apps and see options to turn mobile data off, but that isn't what I think I want. Any suggestions on how to do what I'm trying to do? Or perhaps what I'm trying to do isn't even worth doing?

    Easy fix
    Go to Settings > Wireless & Networks > More > Mobile Networks > Network Mode and select the option without LTE

    I'm wanting to automate this so that it turns LTE off whenever I'm at work. But if I'm at home, or running errands, LTE would stay on. I can change the setting manually, but would love to figure out a way to have it automatically change.

    Use a NFC tag in the office and another one in your car to change the setting.

    I know you could set it up with some Tasker profiles but I wouldn't be able to tell you how to do it :\
