Across the top of my KEYone screen there is a row of icons which includes: location, Bluetooth, alarms etc... + 1 which frequently changes and shows as LTE+, LTE or 4G. When the LTE is showing there are also 2 arrows under it which are either showing as: solid icon both arrows pointing down OR both arrows flashing/pulsating and one pointing up while the other points down - can anyone explain why the icon changes and why do the arrows pulsate? Many thanks.

It's showing data being transfered when they are flashing. The arrows show data leaving the phone and data being received by the phone.
Arrows just being present but not flashing means there is a connection. If there's an exclamation mark instead of arrows it means data connection isn't present or there are issues with the connection.

They each allow for different speeds. 3G is the slowest and oldest towers, then 4G and LTE is the fastest newest towers.
