Default T-Mobile LG Optimus G Pro Owners Reception Q

I was hoping to ask the community if any combination of rom, baseband, modem, kernel etc could somehow improve the inconsistent/weak call quality and reception issues that carrier unlocked owners of the G Pro may be experiencing.
On T-mobile, I realize that i'm mostly on refarmed LTE frequencies, but for the most part the phone just drops reception on/off on a regular basis. Signal strength is consistently over -107dbm. No option to manually choose 2g, 3g vs 4g networks.

Any help and insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!

would just switching to a different rom without flashing baseband or modem, etc do the trick? I was hoping to not try the shotgun approach of a hundred different attempts to see what would be the best fit. There's currently not much on the forums right now to say which/if anything at all would work best for non att users.

If you are rooted, you can enable network mode in the build.prop and manually choose between 2/3/4g networks
