Phone has trouble finding LTE from no service or 3g

I noticed my Nexus 5 will find 3g OK when coming back into service. However when I get back to lte service, the phone will not find the tower unless I switch it to airplane mode or reboot it. Has anyone experienced this? I tried updating the PRL but the problem is still there. It is annoying because I do a lot of mapping.

    I had a similar problem. This resolved my issue:

    I had the same problem (no data at all using cellular network) after updating my unrooted Nexus 5 to Android 5.1.1 using the OTA update (build LMY48I), but managed to solve it using these steps:

    Type star#star#4636#star#star in the phone dialer. You will see a rather messy dialog "Phone info".
    Tap the three dots in the upper right corner and tap "Enable data connection".
    This fixed the issue for me.

    I second that! Brad, this fixed my recent problem with Nexus 5 with (old) Android 5.1. It recently stopped being able to get 3G service and this seems to have fixed the problem. One can only hope.
