joker97: Is it possible to have full bars of signal showing but poor signal for data?

I was in middle of a concrete building this morning and from the same spot
0810 7+Mbps down .9 Mbps up
0940 2Mbps down .6 Mbps up
1100 .2 - .8 Mbps down .5 Mbps up

Went to george st in the open (the main st in town)
12pm 3Mbps down .8 Mbps up

Went to a street on a hill call royal terrace
12.15 .05 Mbps down .08Mbps up
This one shows full signal bars ... Maybe the data signal not as strong? Possible?

more likely the cell tower back-haul is over load - there is x bandwidth that the cell has, if more people using data then the cell site can handle, then everyone using that cell site slows down, moving down the road, you likely connecting to another cell site that is not overload so you go faster.

I'm surprised no other xt Dunners users are complaining :( is telecom going to look into this traffic congestion?

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

I'm still getting data disconnecting issues and dead data connections on the waikato uni cell site.

Today at around 1pm it dropped the data session entirely, then came back with an H but no connectivity. This even changed to a H+ which was still useless. Then data dropped entirely again.
Restarting my Nexus 4 the data session came back but was still unusable. Wasn't till I moved location and am now on another cell site that I get a usable connection which is now working fine.

Seems to be a trend that's been happening a lot for me, what's the best way to report this?
