ATT slow ping times

Asked: May 09 2021 | 9:17 am EDT 179 Views 2 Answers

I am on Att in a very low coverage area. I have 1 to 2 bars consistently. The only way I can get decent network speeds is by constantly turning mobile data on and off. When I turn it back on I get ping times ~100ms. After 20 minutes or so ping times increase to well over 5 seconds. Turning mobile data off and back on resets the times back to ~100ms.

Welcome to Android Central! Since you know you're in a low coverage area, it's worth researching if other carriers have better coverage and perhaps switching to one of them. Otherwise, rely on wi-fi as much as possible.
