I use Verizon as my internet provider for my Dell desktop computer. My current Verizon Unlimited Plan slows down after 15GB. It appears there's a new Unlimited Plan that slows down after 22GB. Am I reading this right?
No, you are not.
The device whether it is a USB modem or Jetpack is connecting your computer to the Verizon Wireless network as a connection to the device's hotspot feature. Generally the unlimited plans are restricted to 15 GB of LTE high speed hotspot data before you are slowed down to 3G speeds for the remainder of the billing cycle. The 22 GB usage is the deprioritization limit for smartphones that connect directly to the Verizon Wireless network and the 15 GB LTE hotspot data counts towards the 22 GB deprioritization limit.
There are other plans that have different LTE hotspot data usage limits. You should review the plans available to see if they meet your needs and budget. You can also look at moving the USB modem or Jetpack to a separate plan that is a tiered data plan. You would get the full data limit for your computer, but be aware if you exceed the plan limit you will be charged for the overage unless that plan allows for a Safety Mode which slows the data speeds to 128 kbps for the remainder of the billing cycle after reaching the plan's data limit.
The only 15GB limit has been for hotspots. The only available unlimited that offers more hotspot premium data is Get More at 30GB.
You really shouldn't be using this as your main internet connection unless you literally have no other option. In witch case, I'd suggest moving more than using carrier data as home data.
Since this is your primary source of Internet, we definitely want to make sure we are setting the right expectation about the new unlimited plans.
For personal hotspot usage, the new plans offer 15 GB of 4G LTE speed on the Play More and Do More varieties. The new offering we are very excited about is the Get More Variety, which offers 30 GB of 4G LTE speed. You can view the full breakdown of the plans here: http://spr.ly/6603EFdpd
