Thanks, David. DSL is working, but my 4G is a faster connection!

Well if you're gonna steal, may as well pay $7 for the privilege.

I take issue with this. This is not stealing. I pay for an *unlimited* data plan and I am simply making use of it.

Re: Verizon 4G + FoxFi app performing better than AT&T 6Mbps DSL

I'm seriously considering it but I have to have a long-term solution with a reliable connection from home to do work stuff after hours. I don't yet know if this Verizon solution is going to be long term. If so it would be SWEET cause I've got work ponying up $100 of my $115 monthly bill

So try the connection from home and work.. What kind of ping do you get? Maybe run an all night internet stress test?

just ran another speedtest.net - ping is high ... 137ms but that's probably because my IP address is showing as being located at Irvine, CA !! no matter - speedtest download is 12.9 and upload is 8.2 - way better than DSL!

Dont forget you also have access to IPv6 websites over Verizons 4g LTE and its not tunneled either you actually have a IPv6 address that another thing you may want to test out. »test-ipv6.com/ Verizon isnt fooling around with the modern aspects of there LTE service other than screwing new users with share everything crap.

Verizon 4G + FoxFi app performing better than AT&T 6Mbps DSL

Hi everyone, AT&T DSL is out again (2nd time in 4 weeks, rep says it will be out for 3-5 days - don't worry they're gonna pay!) so I've gotten another chance to power-test out the FoxFi wifi tethering app turning my Verizon Galaxy S3 into a wifi hotspot - Yes I popped $7 for the paid version of this app (best $7 I ever spent instead of paying $30/mo to the big V!) The last speed test I ran gave me 13Mbps/10Mbps compared to my 6Mbps/512Kbps DSL. Since I'm on an unlimited Verizon plan I'm going to keep testing this as long as I can! This is great - I've got my laptop connected to it (I can even VPN and remote desktop to work with no problem at this speed) and I can take my Wifi Kindle Fire anywhere I want and use it too! At my current rate I'll probably double my usage to 4gb over last month's - Wondering if Verizon will have any issue with this...but as I understand it they can't prohibit you from using your phone this way...Any one have a similar experience or comments on this to share?
