When I first got a VZ 4GLTE jet pack, I replaced my home internet over a year ago. I was getting speeds of over 10Mb/ 2Mb up at my home in the Haight area of SF 94117. The last 3 months speeds have been horrible. I've tested speeds in different parts of the city using Root metrics and Speedtest.net on both my Jetpack and my HTC DNA phone. I now receive 1-2Mb/1 if I'm lucky. From July 18th-yesterday I was averaging 384K and for half of sunday not getting any speeds.
My performance in downtown SF has also deteriorated. I rarely get anything above 3Mb from my office on Pine and Front. Why am I paying a premium for Vz LTE . I've been getting the same performance as Sprint's 3G. Many of my peers in tech share the same frustration at Vz's lack of capacity planning for LTE. Please advise on what is being done.
just want to add my .02 here.. I'm getting exactly the same at market and beale.
i really think the area is just over sold/saturated and they really need to do some upgrades to handle it.
Live in SF, used to love VZ, now they are pretty bad especially on weekends. Their claim of the best network are not true. Maybe time to jump ship. They charge so much for so little in a key market. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!
I have terrible speeds and dropped calls at my home at Hayes and Fillmore. I called and they told me to enable wifi calling. I did that so I could call AT&T to switch to my wife's plan. Adios @verizon
