Why are my speeds so slow with full 4G?

I just switched my S8+ to the Verizon unlimited prepaid plan and ever since ive been getting speeds so slow that they barely register on speedtest, usually .05mbps with a full 4g connection as i live by a tower. But, it still doesnt matter what time it is or even if im in a different town. I just renewed this month and have only used 2gb maybe, so i shouldnt be getting slowed down already. The other thing that doesnt make sense is that the upload speed is always 6-20mbps. So, obviously the bandwidth is there. Why pay $75 for unlimited data if its junk?

In times of congestion, your speeds might be impacted.
