22Mbps is a dream speed now with a Jetpack
Innova

I've used my Jetpack all over my area of Southern California. It's not a faulty Jetpack. I've resigned myself that the most I will ever get is 1-2 Mbps.  4 bars? 1-2 Mbps. 2 miles from the tower? 1-2 Mbps.

I can browse the net OK with those speeds (barely) .If I ever settle in one place, the thing to do is to try other networks that somehow get better speeds. I got one Verizon hotspot that got me 22 Mbps and was jazzed. Then I go to a Airbnb place using whatever they have (not using my JetPack) and got 3 times that speed. Jetpacks are cool, for a rover like myself. The last two areas I was at were somewhat rural with only two bars showing, but doing their speed test and getting 0 Mbps was disheartenig. I can still get to the net with a big delay, which I am grateful for. I got 500 Kbps.

It's like being low on data and having an iPhone throttled back due to low data, only I have plenty. That's what it's like using my Jetpack in 5 areas in my region, which isn't in the sticks.
