Switching from Public Mobile to Lucky Mobile
I'm hoping to touch base with some Lucky Mobile subscribers to confirm a couple of questions before I leave Public Mobile. I've been dropping calls like mad on PM and I'm tired of it. So, before I get into it, I know the towers are owned by Bell, I know the coverage will be the same, but the calling may be different.
1) I know it connects to the 4G network, but it is apparently capped at 3G "like" speeds - same as PM. (Translation: nothing near actual 3G speeds, more like 3MB up/down). That said, can anyone confirm that this is still the case in mid-2019? Are the speeds still capped at 3mb?
2) Can anyone confirm what network is being used when making a call. On PM, we are connected to LTE, but the second I make a call, it drops to H+ because PM does not have access to LTE calling. Does Lucky remain on the LTE network during a call? I'm not looking for the "Yes, Lucky uses LTE", I'm looking for someone who understands cell networks and can confirm what network it calls on". I believe this is where my issues stem from as Bell subscribers would have priority to the network and especially of third rate subscribers from a budget brand freeloading off of their towers.
3) If you switch your phone off of the LTE network and force it to 3G, are the data speeds quicker? On PM, when I do this, the speeds I get are 10-25Mb which are true 3G speeds. It's only throttled when on the LTE network that I get the 3mb up/down. Is this the same on PM?
