Default Radio band

If I am in an dchspa+ 42 area what would be the best setting to use in the hidden menu setting such as wcdma, LTE gsm, wcdma preferred, etc... These are just some of the stings inside the radio shortcuts hidden menu. I only get 3-5 Mbps and I feel like being on the 42 hspa+ that I should get better speeds. My town is small also. Population 15 k.
Here's the hidden menu.

You shouldn't need to touch this. That's why its hidden Speed can be down to distance from the mast.

I don't know if CDMA means CDMA or WCDMA.

Depending which it is, either LTE/GSM or LTE/GSM/CDMA

Really its this screen you should be using

Agree with rootsu. In addition you should set it to 3g in that screen rootsu posted. It'll take care of itself

If you aren't using lte then it would be wcdma preferred, which is the same as selecting 3g in the other menu mentioned.

I use this screen to force test areas with weak lte (lte only mode). Stuff like that.

When I change it to 3g in the hidden menu it changes to gsm auto prl not wcdma preferred. So what should I do? Should I manually set it to wcdma preferred or when I set it to 3g and it changes in the hidden menu to gsm auto prl just leave it? Thanks

That isn't a hidden menu its just an app called phone info it does the same as going to mobile networks and selecting 3g. You really don't need an app to enable this super leet hacks speeda
