Slow hotspot mobile data
It took a several hours with Tech support to find out that if I use the Unlimited Data plan my Mobile Hotspot data is capped at .6 Mbps or less although Mobile Hotspot data was fast before adding two phones to a Shared account. I was told that must have been an error in the network setting on their end. Using Ookla speed test and Mobile Hotspot data my speed near Atlanta is
.3 Mbps download, less than dialup. If I get off of Hotspot but still on Mobile Data the phone runs the test at 11 Mbps. Why do they limit Hotspot data speed but not Non Hotspot speed?? You cannot accomplish much work at .3 Mbps.
It was suggested I move the Unlimited to Shared plan where I could be full speed on Hotspot. They dont limit Mobile Hotspot data speed on a Shared Plan but they do on Unlimited. I don't see why the should care what your data rate is on Hotspot data. Makes no sense to me when you can run Mobile data Non Hotspot at full speed on the phone but not Mobile data Hotspot. Anyone know of a reason. I had to switch all phone to Shared to get the speed I need on Hotspot. So bottom line there is NO full speed Unlimited Mobile Hotspot data plan.
