Default Signal Strength

I have noticed on the stock rom, 4.1.2 I get mostly LTE and 4g and rarely edge. I have also noticed on aftermarket ROMs the signal bounces around a lot. I'm currently running CM 11 p11, is there any way to get better signal? Or force it to only get 4g and LTE? I have already gone into settings and chose T-Mobile fast APN. What else can I do. Thanks

I'm guessing you were on att stock and liked the signal. Then you flashed a tmobile rom and now signal is different no? If you liked the att stock rom signal, then the modem or "Baseband version" you liked is the "I717UCMB4". If you check under "About Device" it will tell you what baseband version you're on. You can flash modems separately and find out which one works best for you. Just do a search for modems!
