Issue Description

I started noticing a E preceding the cell signal strenght and it takes forever to bring up my mail. What is that indicating?

Hello @baynej, :slight_smile:

This should help:

OK, so why is my service slowing down? E=2.5 g. why am I not getting LTE speeds when I’m not on wifi with my Moto g stylus?

Hi @baynej,

May we know a zip code (nothing more) for the area you’re seeing EDGE (really slow) coverage rather than LTE? Do you typically see LTE coverage in that specific area?


also 83605

According to coverage maps, both of those zips would seem to have LTE coverage though there are pockets of “fair” signal strength. I suggest a network settings reset. Republic’s how to on that is linked here:

If the network settings reset doesn’t improve the coverage experience, Republic does have an alternative coverage option. More on that is linked here:

thank you. I understand what’s happening now
