Re: slow speeds..live right next to tower

Are you connecting on 3G or 4G, it appears you are on 3G, when you had Verizon you must of been getting 4G.

Thanks for all your answers. I guess i will have to buy a Verizon hotspot from them. Our sprint hotspot we bought from Ebay quit working yesterday. Just didn't want to because we have a Verizon hotspot that works perfectly, but Verizon plans with it is $90 for 10 gigs. Will they make me pay the $40 startup fee and have to repay the $70 that we already paid?

And i was told we were 3g for verizon. 4g doesn't start until dallas area. I guess sprint just has bad speeds. I wanted the 50gb plan so i could uttorent and raid on WoW. But if its going to always take hrs to download stuff then its useless.

Ok, that makes a lot more sense now, yeah you can't really compare 4G with 3G, 4G ping and speeds is just so much better, but the speed you were getting with Sprint 3G was actually really good for 3G, not sure what Millenicom's procedures are for that, when you signed up did they tell you that you could get 4G with the Sprint plan, cause obviously you couldn't.

No i wasn't told i would get 4g on sprint i just didn't know the speed difference was that big. I'm suppose to get a new Hotspot tomorrow and i will test WoW on it to make my decision. My speeds may have gotten up to 2mbps but they were ot consistant at all. it would jump from 200kbps to 90kbps to 150kbpd etc

It's very possible you could get 4g in that area. I know there is 4g verizon in Gladewater, as well as Tyler and outside of Tyler. I'm between Tyler and Canton and I even pick up a 4g signal (although it isn't a strong signal without an antenna)
