    My N5, here in houston, always tests super slow 4g. 2-6mb is about it.

    It has everything up to date. I went and got my msl and set the b41 to priority 1, and 26 and 25 to 0. The sprint coverage map says spark coverage is all over and I am smack in the middle of it. Yet, my phone sits on band 25 running the same 2-6mb download speeds.

    Am I missing something?

    I'm in KC, and hardly get band 41 around town. This is their home metro and data speeds are atrocious.

    My connection is mostly to band 25 and 26. When I do get band 41 it's fast as heck, I've reached 50 down a couple times.

    LOL! Very likely true... I'm supposedly in their "turbo spark" area, and I've never seen download speeds better than 5-10Mbps. After several months of pathetically slow speeds when outside of their turbo spark area on my spark enabled phone (and over 14 years with Sprint), I gave up, and moved to T-Mo. Speedtest shows me about 40/20 Mbps on average in cities. (Caution: When traveling between large metro cities, in far flung areas, T-mo's data coverage sucks, but at least voice coverage still exists). T-mo's coverage works for me, but may not work for you.
