Is there a way to bypass Verizon's Funk proxy servers? I have very inconsistent web connectivity where pages time out are slow to load. Other non-http applications are all working fine and I have connectivity to the network. If I VPN to work, web access is fine as I am bypassing the proxy servers. I see responses from Verizon's proxy servers in wireshark traces when I am seeing the poor performance and they are like a roach motel - traffic goes in and doesn't come out.
Does Verizon have a plan to fix this issue? This type of service isn't what I pay $80 a month for by a long shot.
Thank you for your inquiry. While by passing the proxy servers on the Verizon Wireless network is not a suggested option, we do ask you to go to our coverage locator at http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/CoverageLocatorController?requesttype=NEWREQUEST, and to a link at www.speedtest.net. Please note the information provided at these links for later reference.
If your in a 3G area, your speeds should range be between .6 and 1.4 Mbps. If you are in a 1x or just digital area, the speeds will be less than 80 Kbps (.08 Mbps). The links will help determine your network connection speed is within the range that is supposed to be your device. If the speeds match up of what you should be getting, that means the network connection is present at the capacity Verizon Wireless advertises. To improve speed, we can recommend using the usb extension cable that came with the modem, moving the modem to an area where it will get better signal (usually near a window), and making sure VZAccess Manager is up to date which can be checked, and updated fromwww.vzam.net .
