There is one specific ATT LTE tower near me that is giving this speed...
The DL speed on this specific LTE tower starts off around 10+ mbps but within a second it "throttles" down to the DL speed you see. The UL speed is always ~20 mbps, the normal ATT LTE UL speed. All other LTE towers are fine for me, around 20-30 mbps download and upload speed.
I put in a ticket with ATT, an engineer said I was too close to the tower, something about signal overshoot. They ignored my questions about why the upload speed was fine, or why the DL speed seems to be "capped" or "throttled".
I called ATT again and they told me "tower is over capacity, in October there will be another tower built nearby to address the issue."
Anyone experience this with any other LTE towers? If the tower is "over capacity" does that mean ATT is throttling the download speed to 1 mbps?
