***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
3g speeds ping rates

I'm interested to know what people are getting for ping rates. I have unlimited plan, 8 months ago it was great 1.5-2mb down, for the last 2 months i'm lucky to see 700kbbs down, I don't use that much data vs some people this month i'm only up to 1.5g data so far. In July I actually managed to stream an entire 1080p movie form vudu without interruption. now it takes this page 2 mins to load. but I can actually do everything I need to online with 700kbbs if I have ping rates under 100ms.  Here seems to be my issue, my ping rates are averaging 800ms, spikes to 1800ms, all the time, its driving me crazy, I don't care if they need to Throttle or "optimize" data, but when Ping rates can't get below 800ms it makes me think there is an infrastructure problem. They don't Throttle ping rates.  Once in while I understand high ping crowded servers but 2 months 90% the time its 800ms or higher.

Re: 3g speeds ping rates

200-300 on 3G, and about <150 all the time on 4G.  I live in the middle of the Pacific so some of that can be contributed to distance to servers.

Well it may be due to the holiday sales that happened and a lot of people picking up devices or "upgrading" to smart phones during the holidays.  It could be they are operating and testing 4G(which WILL affect 3G sometimes).  They put up mobile femtocells take down a tower and implement stuff then bring the tower back online.  mobile femtocells doesn't have the kind of capacity as a tower will so if too many are connected to one of them you'd get your type of symptoms.
