Major speed problems on my 4g LTE... What changed?

I have a note 3... Yes I need to upgrade - however my wife and my Mom, both of whom are on my unlimited plan,  have new phones and their speeds are FLYING fast and mine practically died after switching to the new unlimited plan.  Verizon, fess up.... Tell us why you're messing with the data speeds on older phones?  Trying to force customers to newer phones?? Seriously... Ive done everything asked of tier 2 service reps and still no better.  I've been a customer far too long to tolerate this nonsense!

Are you using more than 22 GB of data?  From  The new Verizon Plan Unlimited FAQs | Verizon Wireless

On the new Verizon Plan Unlimited you get our fast LTE speeds. To ensure a quality experience for all customers, after 22 GB of data usage on a line during any billing cycle we may prioritize usage behind other customers during network congestion. This means your data connection could slow down.
