    Why is my hotspot so slow?????

    I have a Thunderbolt, and i usually get 12-25mbps on my speedtest. When i turn on my hotspot, my tethered device (either my laptop or htc view tablet) only get 3-5mbps??????

    Am i being throttled? I have the grandfathered unlimited data and unlimited HOTSPOT feature aswell.

    Can someone explain?

    PS i only average 4-5 gigs per month also, not really heavy usage.

    Have you tried the wired tether. I don't know why more people don't use it. It should be faster and more secure than a wireless connection.

    I'm having this exact same problem with a Galaxy Nexus. Although it appears to be the PC and not the phone. Have you tried another PC? On my Win XP desktop with wifi adapter it tops out at 3-3.5mbps. But on my Windows 7 notebook I get 10-12mbps (same as phone). Both excellent signal to phone. Odd issue indeed.
