Happy New Year! It Can Only Go Up

Re: Happy New Year! It Can Only Go Up

I had verizon before this.  They were fast for the first 6 mo. Then gradually got slower and slower and slower until I had to go to work to check my email.  When I came home, my internet would still be trying to load.

My DL is usually less than .5 Mbps, UL 4ish but lately more like 2ish Mbps.  Is this normal for y'all? I've only been with this co for 6 mo and it is NOT what they promised.  Also, I seem to use gigs faster than toilette paper. Maybe the slowness is somehow eating the gigs? Ha-ha-sigh.

I have good 4G LTE right now but so expensive for large plans. If price comes down I may jump ship. The lower latency is nice, makes a difference. When I use the the small 3 GB allowance I have it is noticeably faster.


My wife picked me up a new Galaxy 7 on Black Friday special for $49. When I transferred my service to the new phone, I was very surprised to find dang fast 4G LTE instead of 1xRtt (9 miles from tower). I also learned when reading the new box, I now get 10 GB/mo instead of 3. Very nice but all I can do is feed a single computer on my network because the reseller don't allow hotspotting or tethering like real Vz.  Klink with spoofing or Klink with a VPN are safe and work well. I get anywhere from 3 Mbps to 16+ Mbps. Not sure if that fluctuation is due to traffic or my location. Either way, it's a lot better than 100 kbps on 1x and a nice supplement to my Hughes allowance since I can use it to feed my TV, etc.
