Verizon data extremely slow

I changed over from AT&T a few days ago.

I was on an equivalent Unlimited plan.

Now, on Verizon, my iPhone Xr cannot connect to data at all when I am in certain areas, such as my workplace (90810).

I also have another iPhone Xr (under work's AT&T plan), so I can compare the exact same models in the exact same spots.

I can get data connection with the AT&T phone, but no data connection on my Verizon phone.

I tried different phones, and it is always the same. The phone with the Verizon sim card cannot connect at all to data. While the AT&T phone(s) have not trouble.

If I did not get myself on a phone plan, I would switch back immediately.

My Verizon phone cannot even connect to mail, much less app store, or anything that requires data connection.

Was Verizon always this bad?

Sounds like you went with Verizon's cheapest unlimited and trying to use that in a congested area.


It wasn't always like this, you have the likes of T-Mobile to blame for Verizon change an easy to follow unlimited plan for one that has 3 seperate tiers.

Re: Verizon data extremely slow

Same here if not on WiFi it seems to take forever to load web pages or go online with LTE on Verizon ?
