Report - 4G Service Significantly Degraded


I want to formally report that my wireless service has been subpar since 1JULY 2017.  I have been using your wireless internet service since January 2015 and it has always been lightning fast.  That was until recently, on 1 JULY 2017 the service was suddenly degraded to the point that I am only getting an average of 40 KB/s with bursts up to 300-500 KB/s.  This is completely unacceptable and really makes me wonder why I am paying $450 a month for this service.

And before you ask.  No I have not exceeded 10G on my device.  I spent TWO WEEKS troubleshooting my computer, my devices (4 IPhones and 1 Ipad) and the network; and I have concluded that it is the service.  I have run tests from multiple computers, using multiple devices as hotspots, from multiple locations (as I took my device and laptop on the road).  All the test results were the same regardless.  Your service is severely degraded to an UNACCEPTABLE level.

I suspect with the move to the Unlimited Plan that Verizon did not have sufficient network infrastructure in place to handle the .  If that is the case then acknowledge it and let us know the plan to fix this, instead of having  your Tech personnel pretend there isn't a problem.

So what is the plan Verizon?
