    Its actually not throttled, but rather that you are deprioritized. So as long as your network tower has plenty of bandwidth you are fine. But if other people are using it the network, your request will be prioritized behind theirs.

    Its actually a pretty good system. No sense in slowing down the speed if they have an open network.

    FYI. They do supposedly actually throttle the hotspot after 10gb, but I have not noticed a thing.

    Ah. Not sure about the hotspot. But read that about the overall 22gb limit

    That's awesome. Sounds like you and LabLuvR are spending a lot of time together on FaceTime.

    I'm guessing most of your usage is is rural areas with decent coverage. I would think that much usage would get you sent to the back of the line in densely populated areas.

    Not a kb on fuckbook. Maybe a few mb on the innerweb total if this place draws that much checking in now and then. Netflix Amazon et al. I am bad to start a series and fall asleep while they play the whole thing. Still hoping for another Deadwood but most shit these days is just dead wood. Youtube spearfishing Indo or Coral Sea rarely dissappoints...

    Mine is still full steam ahead. Just waiting though for the shoe to drop and speed to slow down, so far it hasn't.

    I can stream anything on my phone with my 4g. No issue. Only problem is when I turn on hotspot to run the Xbox it lags a little, occasionally. About 120gb used in the last two months.

    FYI..... The unlimited plan is really only 10 gigs of 4g per device.
    They drop you to 3g when a device reaches the 4g limit!

    Is there a monthly fee for the hotspot or once you buy it you are good?

    I've noticed that happening to mine towards the end of the month.

    I use about 35 gigs a month and I never get slowed down to 3G. I live in a rural area where the towers are never out of bandwidth. The thing that would screw me is if I was at 27 gigs and went to a high traffic area.

    According to the several people I talked to at Verizon the only thing that gets throttled is using the phone as a mobile hotspot. It is defiantly done on a priority based system. If you are over the allotted 24 gigs and the tower is being stressed you are last. The Verizon guy told me with where I live that would not be a issue at all. It would only be a issue if I was over the amount and then went to a clemson football game. He said my data would be unusable basically.

    I'm talking about the hotspot on my phone. There's no charge for that. I have no knowledge of actual hotspot devices.

    Like I said, over 60gb a month with no downgrade to 3g

    You don't get throttled. You get deprioritized so you only fall back if the tower is full

    Verizon's coverage in Beaufort/Bluffton has gone to hell in the last 6 months. Dropping calls consistently in places that were always good coverage

    111GB used this month running Roku on tv in living room, smart tv in bedroom and home computer. Currently watching Game 2 of the NBA finals with the watchESPN app through the Roku on the TV in the living room and surfing the internet on laptop in living room. No problems and no streaming issues in the heart of Lexington. Verizon installed an outdoor router for us free of charge. It would have been $10 more per month to get a mobile hotspot.

    Moonlight, what plan do you have? Only have access to dial up at my home, and I'm looking at options for internet service.
