    Sounds like you're being throttled by the tower. This is one of the techniques Verizon uses to load balance and keep any one user from pulling all of the bandwidth on the tower.

    There's nothing you can do about it, sorry.

    Short of a backyard tower, assume one lives with it if @ home, and enjoy it where there are numerous towers, like around freeways.
