So I came across this post https://www.reddit.com/r/GooglePixel/comments/r343cy
Poster managed to fix his slow lte speeds, but it made me wonder if this could potentially be the reason why ‘mobile network standby’ is a massive drain for so many people.

A lot of fixes for battery could be attributed to this.

Format without transferring = doesn’t bring your previous provider APN settings over, reacquires apn settings

New SIM card / changing from esim to normal sim = the switching of the sim itself reacquires fresh apn settings

Disabling mobile data always active = potentially linked to this also

What do you guys think? Anyone able to try it? My pixel has not arrived yet.

Not sure that's the most reliable site to use, ie the T-mobile APN they list is wicked out of date
