I have been downloading alot of p2p data on my LTE plan, I have noticed every once in a while the internet connection completely stops even though I have 4 bars of LTE signal. Turning mobile data on and off does not solve it and activating then deactivating aeroplane mode sometimes works. Rebooting the phone always works. I have noticed it usually cuts off after downloading a lot of data via utorrent however a few times it cuts off without this condition being met. This phenomenon is one I have noticed only after using my phone for very large data downloads, I've been using my phone for a few months now without this issue.

I am using a GT-I9505 model which is rooted and has the google edition 4.4.2 installed.

What could be the problem and how do I fix it?

Many thanks.

PS. this is the link to the rom I am using

Maybe your operator is blocking p2p ?

I highly doubt it, p2p traffic is blocked on my network anyway however I use a VPN to mask all my data, and when it cuts off it is not just p2p but all data even after VPN has been turned off. I also called them and asked whether there is any sort of fair usage policy which applies to my contract which may throttle my data and there is absolutely not. I think it is an issue with the phone.

Try download some large files in stock browser or like install a big game in play store to see if your connection gets killed due to over amount of data stream or not.

If connection maintains in play store or stock browser downloading but got killed in p2p , I'd say it's related to it, it's very reasonable they do it, lots operator all over the world blocks it...
