Strange issue with cellular data on my new iPad
I'd been going back and forth with Verizon about my new iPad getting less than 1mb upstream speed on LTE for a few hours (typically as low as .3mb). tried going outside.. across the street.. nothing seemed to make a difference. my download speeds were good (5-10mb), only my upstream was bad.
I started to wonder if maybe something was wrong with my iPad. Then I thought maybe the Seidio Active case I had on it was causing a problem, so I took it off. Suddenly, my upstream speeds shot up to 3-4mb. Put the case back on, upstream speeds plummet back down to .2-.5mb. Long story short, after a bit more experimentation, if there is anything covering the black cutout on the back of my iPad (including a hand) my upstream speed goes right in the toilet.
WIFI is completely fine.
Anyone else experience this?
