I experienced terrible data speeds and latency this past weekend when staying near Iris Rd and Pine Forest Rd in Truckee CA.
In the past, when I had a grandfathered unlimited plan, the sevice was much better. Is the plan change the issue or is there some other rationale?
I should note that the phone indicated at least three bars of service.
Thanks for the response.
To clarify, it was the same phone, in the same location.
The only differences I was able to identify were 1) the plan and 2) the time (2018 vs. 2019)
We definitely want to ensure you get the best service possible. This could definitely depend on the type of unlimited plan you now have. What Unlimited plan do you have? If it is the Go Unlimited, it sounds like you are in a congestive state, which can happen at any point in that plan. If you are on the Beyond, you need to pass 22GB before congestion. Then lastly, the Above Unlimited would allow 75GB before congestion. Does this information help? MichelleH_VZW
Thank you for the response.
I have a plan called "The new Verizon Plan Single Smartphone Unlimited" and had used less than 20gb at the time of the service issues. Based on that, would congestion and throttling have been the cause of the slowdown?
* Apropos, someone should explain the definition of "unlimited" to your marketing department. Having a dozen "unlimited" plans, none of which are actually unlimited, is confusing and misleading.
I appreciate the added details on your plan. Based on the information you would not have been experiencing de-prioritization, as this would only happen after 22GB of data had been used. To better identify what caused it we would need to troubleshoot your phone while you are at the location. Do you go back to this area often?
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I’m only up there a couple weeks a year, with no immediate return plans. I’ll have to reach out next time I’m up there
