Default so Verizon screwed me...

I bought a Tab 2 with verizon LTE and have been using my unlimited data sim. I am a heavy user I have 3 LTE devices now, my rooted thunderbotl, ipad3 and Tab 2. I've been using it for a few days working great with a reliable 4G connection. Today when I turned it on I noticed verizon was downloading a carrier update automatically and I didn't even get the chance to deny it (I always ignore them on my ipad and my tbolt is rooted so I guess they dont send them). Well now my vzw 4g LTE connection is total crap.

Something doesn't sound right, maybe you can educate me, but didn't Verizon stop offering truly unlimited plans a couple years ago, and only recently started selling phones with sim cards?

You've grandfathered your unlimited plan into their LTE service? If you don't have a cap, I'd think you could call and ask them WTF?

Verizon stopped offering unlimted plans summer 0f 2012, so about 6 months ago. I am still grandfathered into the unlimited plan.

All 4G LTE phones and tablets utilize sim cards, and verizon has been selling them for about 2 years now going back to the thunderbolt, which is the phone I have.

Have you installed Flash and gone to speedtest.net? (I've heard bad things about their app)
