    It looks to me that they are capping video streaming at 8 or 9 Mbps because it goes above that and then floats down to it.

    If you need to watch video over cellular at home, you can ask tech. support for a free magic box and get the same speeds indoors too with that good a signal.

    You are trolling. This thread is about a pay as you go service, Total Wireless. There is no contract for you to be "let out of".

Even in a bonded situation you can still notice a drastic difference in quality. I pay for my data and should be able to use it the way that I want to without being slowed down at all .
    I don't think it's trolling ........ the OP stated that they prepaid for the next 10 months + paid for extra data ......

    Probably most people didn't notice a difference. I can still stream youtube and netflix just like before and didn't notice the difference until mentioned that it got throttle down for video streaming. I did see that it got throttle down to around 3 Mbps on fast.com but didn't affect my viewing experience. Maybe 4k but hd quality seem to be ok.

    I can still stream YouTube at 1080p and 1440p. Can't say it's affecting me at all.

    What do you get when you go to fast.com ?

    No issues here either. If my normal speed tests are high, and I run a fast.com speedtest - I get at least 4.0mbps. I'd say there's definitely some throttling employed for video streams, but nothing that effects my end user experience. Can still stream 1080p without issue (which for a phone screen is more than plenty). Overall - still the best deal around for four lines for me and my family.

    To follow up on my post. The max I've been able to stream on YouTube is 1440p. I tried 1440p with 60fps, but it buffers a lot. As long as I can stream at least 1080p, I am happy.

    I also agree on the price. No one else comes close to the price for shared family data on the Verizon Network.

    Yep. When Target puts the refill cards on sale - I pick up a few. They seem to do a 10% off promo at least once a month... plus with my Target Red Card - I get another 5% off. The past few months I've been paying $85.50 out-the-door for the $100 plan. We've had no issues with their service since we switched. Completely satisfied!

    I have Netflix and other streaming services set to 480p on my phone so I wouldn't notice a throttle.

    I don't want to waste my data with HD versions on my tiny (5") phone screen.

    Even my 60" 4k TV seldom sees higher than 720p sources. Some occasional 1080p movies, but most stuff doesn't warrant higher resolution.
