Data speeds

Recently, I changed to Unlimited. All was fine until the actual data usage. The speeds are horrible compared to actual Verizon speeds (I am under the 20 GB cap). I get 1 mpbs download when a person with Verizon gets 40 mpbs. Keep in mind that this was tested in the same place at the same time. What's up with that?

For unlimited plans, the speeds are restricted after 20GB of use.   This is what is stated in the unlimited data plan pricing terms -

After 20 GB of monthly data use, speeds are reduced to a maximum of 1.5 Mbps download/750 kbps upload.

Re: Data speeds

Yup, I know that. I am at 8 GBs and the speeds are still slow.
