I work at Boeing in Everett and got a 0 mbps speed test with 5 bars of 5g(with a brand new phone), why. This is what I pay $150 a month for???? Beyond pathetic.
Then don't use 5G, problem solved. Either toggle it off if you have an iPhone or swap to a 4G sim card if it's Android. 5G won't be worth caring about for awhile..and I have a Galaxy S20 using the 4G sim out of my old LG.
Did a speed test and got 53.79mbps on the most basic unlimited plan. My line costs me $36.66 before tax thanks to multi line pricing.
Can I still get a 4g sim card for my S20+ from a Verizon Store? I have a new/Verizon-refurbished S8+ phone that I'm not using, but maybe I can say I need one for that...? I assume I could put that in my S20+.
Will that help with overall data speed, or does that depend on the region?
Also, sometimes my gps messes up (locks/stutters) and someone said it had to do with 5g... As you know, you cannot just turn-off 5g on the S20's. But I like your idea of using a 4G sim card.
