    I also would vote for the issue of "Is Verizon better than PagePlus" and its variations such as "What are the advantages of using native Verizon instead of PagePlus" being considered off-topic for this group.

    Those reports reporting favorable speeds that I have seen have usually been very vague, no A/B test Verizon/PagePlus, no details, so I am not sure that they really are correct and that the person was not mistaken or whatever.

    It is certainly possible though that some people have got good speeds and if so it will be clearer with time.

    One possibility is that PagePlus has elected a lower service level, say for example "priority 3", to reduce cost, and that there is variation on the speeds that this translates into in different areas of the country or on different categories of towers.

    Or there simply could be errors and inconsistencies in the Verizon implementation of virtual LTE networks. The virtual network extension to LTE may never have gotten a through workout until now. The question then becomes, which way is it supposed to be behaving? With a throttle, as it is currently behaving throughout the Carolinas, and in South Dakota, or without a throttle, as it may be in a couple of other areas?

    It is beyond shilling, it is called trolling to get a rise out of people. This person provides no pertinent content, mostly irrelevant. Their purpose seems solely to lambaste PPC or any other VZW MVNO while supporting VZW Mothership Service as the holy grail and belittling others who don't in an off hand way. Metaphorically, attempting to rub your nose in it at every opportunity.

    What device are you using to test the Page Plus LTE speeds with?

    True enough. It may well be that they haven't run anything to get actual, numbers and are just going on feel.
    ie, it feels the same as their Verizon direct service.

    There was a post here though where they had numbers and PP matched Verizon, though neither number was spectacular.

    The question then becomes, which way is it supposed to be behaving?
    That's the one bit of info we are least likely to actually get.
    MVNOs in general are tight lipped and vague when they actually do say something.

    Speed Test with PagPlus Sim Card on a Samsung Galaxy S3 from Palm Springs, CA around 8:56pm
    3.34 down and 0.81 up, Ping 41

    so this is consistent with everybody else. PagePlus should come clean and just say upfront that LTE speeds are throttled below 4 Mbps.

    At least people can make an informed decision if they want to go with throttled PP speeds or something else.

    Not complaining just happy that I can use any newer Android phone without flashing and only paying $29.95 a month

    Okay. Thanks for the update on Page Plus LTE speeds in your area. Viper seems to be very consistent with his speed result. But GPz1100 reported that the LTE speeds from Page Plus in his area are 6Mbps. I'm sure Page Plus wouldn't limit just West coast and East coast. Question do you have a Verizon Wireless postpaid or prepaid LTE SIM card to test?

    High speed around here was short lived. I'm getting ~3mbps now all over town too and barely 1mbps on the upload. This is 3G + .001% octane boost with a bit of engine detonation. Very visible in the speed test graph plots. It starts out quick until QOS kicks in.

    The saving grace can be considered access to current phones. Maybe different speed tiered plans will be made available at some point in the future.

    Yikes... So, is it safe to say it's official that Page Plus LTE speeds are limited to 3.5Mbps? We have testing from West coast, East coast, Central and South.

    Exactly right Wardcst! Batt Mann needs to find a new hobby. His posts are of no use to pageplus users.
