I'm experiencing the exact same thing. I have a MetroPCS Mega (SGH -M819N) and have been on MetroPCS since I got the phone. the LTE has been very fast up until now (anywhere between 30mbps and 40mbps down). My signal still says LTE but my speed is inconsistent now. Sometimes fast and sometimes dog slow. I think it's the MetroPCS network.
