After reading several of these forum threads I'm starting to come to the conclusion that at certain times in certain areas Verizon just cannot keep up with the data demand. However, this may be a false assumption so this is what I will elaborate on it a little;
This brings up a few questions that I hope someone can answer.
Any information would be helpful and much appreciated
On the Unlimited plan, while you'll remain on 4G, data may be prioritized on a number after that specific line has used over 22 GB for the billing cycle, meaning that if the tower is congested with a lot of traffic, other consumers could be given data priority. A limited, but larger than 22 GB, data plan would avoid us (until you hit its limit of course, at which point it would either switch to the far slower safety mode, or incur overage charges).
However, if you haven't used 22 GB on that line for the billing cycle, or if the issue ahs persisted through billing cycles, you may have a different issue.
