    Default Data/Internet issue with Nexus 5

    I have my Nexus 5 running Straight Talk with an AT&T LTE sim card. My status bar says LTE all the time. But when I try and browse websites such as nfl.com or youtube. It takes upwards of 2 minutes to load the page. Yet my 3g or (H+) service take about 5-10 seconds to finish loading. With that being said. My friend has the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Straight Talk with an AT&T LTE sim card and his phone will load the page in well under 5 seconds. When I'm in the car LTE doesn't even work mostly because I get aggravated and close out. My apps that require data are slow to load and trying to watch a youtube video off wifi is like trying to pull water from a stone. I never have any issues with calls or texts including mms its just internet data. Please help if you can. I'm ready to throw my phone out a window.

    Are you past the limit (I believe it's 3 GB ) where they throttle you?

    No I don't even touch 2gb. I use wifi for about 75% of my day.

    I am on Metro PCS with LTE. The NFL and YouTube pages load quick on my Nexus 5. What do you get from running OOKLA Speed Test? Please take a screen shot of it. Even with just one bar of LTE inside my house I always get speeds of at least 18ms ping, 19.1Mbps down and 6.97Mbps up with Metro and I only pay $40 a month. Also, I have seen people with Nexus 5 get into the mid 30Mbps on this board.

    You may need to call Google Service since you could have either a bad service or bad modem in your N5.

    You may want to call Straight Talk since they have people on this board with the same issues on different phones. https://www.straighttalkwirelessforu...6792&t=1260421

    Toggle Airplane Mode and see if you have better results with the LTE connection. If no improvement, perhaps look into having the SIM card replaced. Aside from that, I don't know what the problem could be other than it being related to hardware with the device. Even then, I would imagine it would be across all website while on LTE, not a select few.

    Hello I'm having the same issue every now and then. It just recently started doing it ever since I got a text from straight talk saying they increased data to 3GB
