Thank you for the very detailed article. I have only had Verizon and still have an unlimited data plan but all bets are off when this phone croaks and I have to get another one.

Thanks for doing all that research :) Our Verizon contract runs out in December. We have been very lucky to be workamping at places that have terrific free wifi, so our plan only uses 2GB of data. We tend to like to upgrade our phones every two years anyway, so this new Edge plan may be the ticket, and we could possibly up our data a bit to keep the same cost of around $170/month.

Thanks for sharing your experience - I'm doing some research to try and figure out what might be going on behind the scenes to explain your speed test results.

If Verizon has started to cap Millenicom's top speeds, that would be big news.

One thing I noticed - neither the BRV Router or your old ZTE JetPack support Verizon's new XLTE frequencies, but the Millenicom Pantech does.

Theoretically XLTE should enable faster speeds and increased capacity, but it is possible that you might be on the fringes of XLTE service and thus the Millenicom Jetpack is trying to use the XLTE tower and struggling more.

If you still have both plans active - swapping around SIM's to try and isolate whether it is the plan or the hardware impacting your speed would be really useful.
