I have an unlocked LG G2 on Koodoo, but I cant' seem to get LTE. It only picks up on 4G. I did a speed test and only get about 9Mbps instead of the 20+ on LTE. There is LTE coverage in my area, as I have another G2 on Telus that has no issues. I've attached the APN screens below.
Any suggestions?

In settings... Wireless and networks... More... Mobile networks...


Is network type set to lte/wcdma/gsm?


Play around with that setting to be sure lte is turned on. Lots of phones have it off because it used to devour batteries.

Also can you post a screenshot taken with your wifi off? Thanks.

What's the model # of the G2 you're using? Some of the models localized for Europe or other foreign regions won't have compatible frequencies. You need 1700/2100 for LTE.

It's the G2 (D803) CDN variant. I just tried Chad's suggestion and that did the tirck. It wasn't set to LTE/auto, just the GSM / WCDMA auto. Thanks all for the help and suggestions.

Yeah, that would have affected it. You're good to go.
