    Really bad 4G speeds for the past couple hours in North Central Florida.Low 1's to .50 D/L about the same U/L.


    Anyone else.


    Now I have used A LOT of data this month but nowhere near any 60G.

    Evidentlly your estmate and Verizon's counters don't agree. Go to a Verizon store and alk to them (nicely - don't lose your temper. If the salesdroid sounds clueless, ask - nicely - "may I speak to the store manager, please?")

    It could be any one of a number of things. For instance, many people think that sending an attachment to a text counts against your text allowance. It doesn't - it's data. So is updating apps. So is seeing an ad in a free app. And it all adds up.

    I am on unlimited $55.

    I couldn't use 60 G in a month (much less in half of one) if my life depended on it.


    And, I've tried.


    I've yet to hit 20 G ever, that's still 40 away from any tethering.


    I rarely lose my temper in any disagreement, it's counterproductive.


    I think it's the network, it's back into the mid two's now. That's way above any throttle speed and I WAS showing 4G all the time it was slow. You don't see the 4G when you're throttled.

    It shows 4G when throttled, your speeds are throttled on the 4G network.

    i don't have 4G in my location but i noticed that kind of throttling in two instances.
    * you go over 25GB in data
    *you go over 1.5GB in 24 hours
    if you wait till next day it could be ok.

    or as you said that network was just congested.

    If you're talking about Ocala. I know they're still actively rolling out LTE and refarming so while they were doing that there could be capacity problems from time to time

    I experienced the same in Detroit, MI. It was during the merger when my 4G was next to nothing. It lasted approx. 3 days.
