USB727 Slow

Lately my connection has beeen very slow....for the past 3-4 months

ive noticed that I will prolly get a week of good fast internet and other vids would download very quickly.

for the past 3-4 months that hasent been happening anymore

today i check my speed test and this is what I got

download speed: 28.1kbs or .022 mbs

upload speed: 24.3 kbs or 0.18mbs


Now reading my plan, it says that typical BROADBAND speeds are 400 to 700kbs

typical NATIONAL ACCESS speed of 60 to 80kbs


It seems like my speed is less than the national access, but it says its conected Broadband


Since I have unlimited broadband and national access, is this the result of verizon limiting my speed??

I do admit that I use youtube and hulu frequently...could that not be allowed on a aircard?
