    Ah, the simple things. That worked. I'm getting 30Mbps on fast now.

    But they can’t throttle everyday data speeds, right, like AT&T does?

    maybe verizon is planning a discount for throttled video like AT&T? maybe charging more for unthrottled video? it's not like anyone is really going to stop them.
    Prepaid says video limited to 480P as a recent change from full speed. Could this be for prepaid and post in the future? Just have to wait and see.

    SFO definition? What does it stand for? Would love to know the answer.

    Wow, you are all getting faster speeds than me. My speeds only rarely get close to 10MB. I recall when LTE first hit my area and the speeds were really quick. Seems to have gone downhill from there. Coverage is where it's at for me not speed so much.

    Good job on those of you who called out Big Red on her bluff. I hope the other carriers take note.

    We need to really keep an eye out on Verizon because they have a long history of trying to pull stuff on their customers.
    I like their response: "Testing". Yeah, testing on their customers without letting people know about it. It wasn't testing. They were trying to pull this crap and were hoping no one would notice. Bunch of liars!

    AT&T doesn't throttle unless you're on the Unlimited Choice plan in which case it very clearly states a 3 Mbps hard throttle.

    2 weeks ago they put stream saver on a bunch of accounts that should have never had it with no way to remove it . Customer service claimed it wasn't on my account when it clearly was . Then the next week Verizon did the exact same thing . They are all evil and can't be trusted !
