Re: Airtel : Only 3G although set to LTE:(

I also have the same issue in the country I'm from but I can tell you not many places have LTE coverage.
Only places that are very populated but when you come out of them areas usually you get only H or worse E(Edge).

Also I am on a monthly plan & the phone I had free with it says 4g but I feel they are rigged to say it.
Because they still get speeds of H+ LTE should be quite seamless.

Try it in major Cities & you will see LTE. Smiley Happy I had LTE when I got mine but when I had to move again to rural area I lost the LTE sign.

But yes I'm sorry that you have this issue its all in the provider to add more LTE coverage.

There are apps that can tell you if the area is in LTE coverage zones.

Check out "4G map & speedtest" - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sensorly.viewer

Hope it helps Smiley Happy

LT E coverage is limited  .Only works in areas close to towers.
