    Speed test v. Verizon

    I can't wrap my non-linear mind around the numbers. On the speedtest.net app, what numbers should I be seeing! My phone is soooo slow! Verizon finally got tired of blaming my phone, and put in a work ticket to check towers where I live.

    As always, thank you in advance.

    It's been anywhere from 2-3 mbps for the last 2 months, I was avg. 5-10mbps in the summer
    it seems every push they send slowed the phone more

    So why are we paying 4G rates for 3G speeds????????????????
    I noticed alot more "servers"lately, does it matter wich one? tried a few and basically all the same results
    again why are we paying for 4G @ 3G speeds???

    4g costs the same as 3g. That's not a valid argument. Idk why you guys have these problems I have 10-11 mbps down average with peeks of 18-20. Try dialling ##778# I forget what has to be changed, but something under a modem setting. Will help out the speeds definitely. If not, root and install a custom radio and you'll be good

    Maybe it has something to do with the shear number of RAZR, Rezound, and Nexus's that were sold over the last 1-2 months.

    You thunderbolt owners aren't the only ones using up all the 4g anymore.

    That's why throttling is wrong. They make more and more money, and we suffer!

    Ok.. sorry for the invalid "argument" my rant basically expresses my disgust with the service,, I pay for the advertised 5X faster crap I want the 5X faster crap, don't throttle my **** down W/O any warning....... get it now colombus
