The speed varies from 0 to 25 Mbps. So the 4G is working sometime, but it kept cutting off many times an hour. It makes my LG V20 phone useless. Is it a known problem with Public Mobile?
Also the home page is still showing 1Gb 3G ?
I live in Centrepointe Dr.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am still having problem when accessing the PM data at home (Centrepointe Dr).
However, I got very fast speed around Algonquin college where the tower is located.
Since the closes tower from my house is at Algonquin college, so the problem is with the distance reception.
Thanks for your help.
If the data issues started after renewal then it's likely a provisioning issue with the Sim card. While there are a few troubleshooting tips you can try in a pinch it will be best to contact customer support and ask for your account to be reset and your Sim card reprovisioned.
Submit a ticket via SIMon or send a private message.....
Log into your account using secret/incognito mode to view the non-cached version of your account. You will then see your updated plan details.
If you decide to perform another speedtest after 48 hours keep in mind that depending on the data speed (up to 100mbps but sometimes faster) one speedtest can use 400+mb of data. It's best to perform speedtests on day 30 of your plan before midnight eastern when you know you have extra data that you will not use before renewal.
Do you have any issues with voice call quality or delayed texts? If so your inconsistent data could be the result of a poor connection to the network. Toggle airplane mode on/off to re-establish a new connection to the network.
The unthrottling of data speed does not require a network reset. We are all connected to the same 4G LTE network regardless of the data speed of our plans. Rebooting of the phone could be helpful though if it's been awhile since the phone had a little nap to refresh itself.
To get most recent account status:
Public Mobile has web page cache issue so you might be looking at obsolete status. Try using different browser. Try Incognito mode. Clear browser’s cache. Try forced refresh. Use computer and not phone to log in. Click on little spinner refresh icons lower down.
It takes up to 2 days for 4G speed to become fully available. Let us know after 2 days if speed is still unstable.
PM states on the plan change page that it will take 48 hours for the new speed to update. Since you just switched, wait 2 days before testing speed again
And since you have an LG, you should Click Reset All Network if the speed still not showing up after 2 days. LG phones usually need that for carrier change, possibly it needs one for speed change too
