    Well, I think your data connection might not be that much fast to provide you with the notifications. I will say why don't you try switching to the network provider that offers you much more fast data connection.

    This definitely wouldn't be it. Notifications don't use much bandwidth.

    Ensure you don't have the app set to only use wifi within the app settings.. This could be the cause.

    Well, sometimes it happens with me, when I travel to places where the mobile data connection is not that much fast you would not get the notifications. But yes like you said the app set to use wifi may also be the reason behind the notification... :O
