LTE speed

We Are Currently Get 6-7Mb(730kbps) since we got 4 bar's LTE. Two months ago we had 2 bar's LTE with 14-17MB(1,4mbps). Just wondering What has happend since a friend who lives 100m up the road from Us Went from 3 bars LTE 30-40mb(3,5mbps) to 4 bars LTE 7-8Mb(730kps). Could Someone explain this? as what good is better signal if our actual speeds Are Worse and is there any Solution?, Because i know that Signal Strength Doesn't Determine your speed alone.

Re: LTE speed

@Ivan1,Just checking as I see you are using different units interchangably.  There is a big difference between MB/s and Mbps - your problem here is that you have a LTE services where you are expecting 30-40 Mbps but receiving 6-7 Mbps.  How are you measuring this?  There are different ways and it depends on upload vs. download services and how you measure it?  The bars are hardly an accurate measuring device. 

Found the answer to your question? Don't forget to Accept the Solution!
