    I did in fact answer your question. I said "no apparent changes."

    No changes. Still the same ping 20-35 ms. Speed varies but still 15-20 by day, up to 50 and above by early AM.

    For years I was getting 28ish ms. A few weeks ago I was getting 120+ms, lasted about a week. Now I'm back to 28ish ms.

    We had been on vacation for 10 days. So I’m not sure how long this had been going on. So about an hour after I posted this the pings went up on my tablet line as well. Then later yesterday afternoon, everything went back to normal.

    With everything going on, I hope they’re not doing some kind of tests for the future.

    Since more people have seen signs of this I'm just wondering if they're doing testing for future changes? Like when Verizon was testing video throttling. Then a short time later they installed the video throttle permanently. Then some people all of the sudden were getting logged out of their AT&T prepaid tablet plans mysteriously. Then boom - lots of people are getting their plans shut down. It is probably nothing. But who knows anymore.

    paranoia....

    if you are over 22gb, it could simply be deprioritization. and remember there are many levels of prioritization. other plans could have a higher priority.

    Yeah - I'm usually not much for conspiracy theories, but the examples I provided I'm sure had people saying the same thing when they first occurred. And look how those turned out. It is probably nothing.

    Netgear Nighthawk Battery Level

    I have had my Netgear Nighthawks for months now and I didn't realize until yesterday that the blue semicircle on the left side is for the battery level. I just never gave it a thought. Now I am looking at the right sided and the icon looks like a little clock. What does that refer to?

    Mine sucked from the very beginning. Used a UE and they significantly improved.

    Mine is 5-9 Mbps at home. That is about with what I get from AT&T on phones. One time at a hotel I got 24 Mbps.

    I find it pointless to judge the Mobley by speed tests. My objective criteria is: Does it work? 5-9 Mbps is not enough for several people to stream HD video. It is more than enough for one video stream and all the web browsing and email a few people can throw at it.

    The Mobley is still an ok hotspot device with the unique unlimited plan for only $20 a month (~$25 with taxes and fees). That can't be beat. The device and plan are no longer available for new service.

    We are on the cusp of wireless/cellular Internet becoming available to many more people, but from what I've seen, it won't be $20 a month. The Mobley and Connected Car Unlimited is a gem that a few of us were fortunate to get while it was available.

    You can buy a better device to run the service in. IIRC, those are in the $200 range - Nighthawk, etc. Those will get higher speed, but only if AT&T has speedier service where you use it. In my area 5-9 Mbps is about all AT&T puts on the air.

    At home I have 30+ down 32 up pretty consistent.

    Never felt the need to swap to another device.
