Default bad weather ==> bad data reception?

We had some thunderstorms roll through today. I can't get a reliable data connection my iphone6. It arrives in fits and starts but mostly just doesn't arrive.

E.g., my mail was loaded twenty minutes ago, but I can't get it to load now.

Does this happen to you?

I looked at a coverage map & supposedly there's an outage 20-40 miles east of me, but not at my location.

I'm on the sprint network.

This happened to me a number of months ago...it lasted a few weeks but eventually resolved on its own.

Mine has been bad today too, in Chicago. I have full bars but my speeds have been terrible. This is on AT&T.

I went in and turned "Cellular Data" off and then on.

That seemed to fix the problem.

I once, no twice, threw up after I spoke on a phone with AT&T service. I now tell everyone to stay away from AT&T.

Don't worry guys, AT&T is very worried they could maybe get a bad reputation from the Michael Cohen debacle. I'm seriously very curious what they thought their reputation was before this scandal? Let me help: They had very shady bill practices, their network reliability is middling at best, their customer services is barely focused on either customers or service, and their CEO is well aware he has a cartel on his hands.
