Re: [Pricing] 4G LTE Billing for usage seems high
I don't understand what you're saying. How can your 3G usage EVER be the same as your 4G usage? Over time, if you are really using both connections with the "same" intensity (perhaps you mean the "same" number of hours of use?), you will be downloading more material from your 4G connection than your 3G connection, simply because 4G is so much faster than 3G.
On the other hand, I seriously doubt that by "same usage," you mean that you're downloading the same web files on both connections and you simply sit there, twiddling your thumbs and toes, waiting for your 3G connection to finish downloading the files that your faster 4G connection already downloaded; that wouldn't make any sense. But if that is NOT what you mean, and I'm sure it isn't, then it is impossible to make the claim that your usage on the 3G connection is somehow the "same" as your usage on the 4G connection.
I think you are missing the point. My reported problem is that Verizon metering of usage on the 4G side is drastically incorrect. Forget the 3G and 4G service throughputs. My observation is that Verizon's metering of usage is not correct and have others noticed it?
I just recently changed from Hughesnet to Homefusion. I am seeing high data rates, like 1 gig an hour in some cases. With Hughesnet, you are restricted to a 350 meg per day limit, and I very rarely hit that. Now all of a sudden, I am hitting 1 gig an hour with the exact same connections on my network. No changes except for the new Homefusion router/modem.
