Default I believe I am on Tmobile LTE using this phone.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I am getting about 19Mbps Down and 18Mbps Up speeds... Is this possible on anything but LTE? My phone shows 3G in certain areas but LTE most of the time. This is on Tmobile with the E970.

Obviously your phone is SIM/Factory unlocked, is your bootloader unlocked?
What ROM?
What Radio?
Where are you located?
How long have you had these speeds?
What are your APN settings?
What plan are you on?

I recall a thread where someone mentioned that FreeGee or whatever defaulted certain values like Bluetooth MAC address, etc. Is it possible that T-Mobile is blocking "us" from LTE because it sees multiple instances of a single device or radio on their network?

SIM and bootloader unlocked

ROM - Paranandroid 4.4.2 Beta6 Found Here (thanks Houstonn
Radio - att jb/mako hybrid Found Here (thanks adfurgerson) <-- this seems to be what did it for me. I had problems using the hybrid radios in this thread... used the radio from this link with a fresh install on everything and did the trick. Click on the link and its the top .zip file.
Location - Jacksonville, Florida
Time - Had these speeds for 5 days now. I have reset my phone. turned off and on the data. used wifi.. sent calls and texts.. tried to see if it was stable. So far so good.
APN settings - see attachment.
Calling plan - I am on a friends and family unlimited text and calls with 500 mb data.

Also, I am using the kernel. 3.4.80-geeb (thanks houstonn) and I flashed everything using CWM.

Maybe someone can see if that works for them? Let me know.

What refreshing awesome news. Hopefully this can be replicated with a continuous LTE connection. Thanks FoSheezy!

Excellent and thanks for the details. Hope this awesome radio(cwm-lgog_e970_20j-att_jb.modemhybridmako) can be flashed/work same way with other ROMs.
