Poor LTE speeds in Downtown Portland, OR


For the past few months, Verizon LTE service has been horrific in our office.  Employees with all other major carriers (i.e., AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint), are seeing LTE speeds of 25+ mbps (when using the OOKLA Speedtest app.  Since July, my tests have show 0.86-1.56 mpbs download speeds, 2.23-6.79 upload speeds, with an average of 50 ms ping.  Colleagues of mine, whom also have Verizon and have different make/model phones, are seeing similarly poor results. These speeds are unacceptable, especially considering the fact that the other carriers are all providing reliable, fast service to the area.

I presume my area is "dead" one to Verizon, because I am able to attain acceptable service 5 blocks to the west of the location listed below.

My address: 100 SW Taylor St, Portland, OR 97204

My 4G signal strength: 83-96 dBm

My Phone: LG G3

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.
