Slow data in eastern Ohio

Member

I am a grandfathered in unlimited verizon customer. I have been using this service non stop since before you took over Alltel over a decade ago. I use my unlimited along with my S7 phones hotspot to watch TV and give internet to all my daughter and I's devices, and I've been doing it like this for over a decade.  I Set my phone in my window, and then using ookla speedtest, I adjust it to the best spot for the fastest speed. Because of this and how long I've been doing it, I know what speeds my phone runs and when it runs it. I usually run 30-50 mbps during the daytime and up to 70-100 mbps at night. Lately though, even though I have a full signal and good ping times, I'm lucky to run a 15 during the day and 30-40's at night. This doesn't allow us to watch TV during the day, and my daughter is having a hard time doing her schoolwork(she is homeschooled, so dependable and fast internet during the day is a MUST). The speeds seems to yo-yo during testing in the daytime, bouncing between 10-50 mbps randomly. It is currently barely running 10 mbps here on my laptop that is hooked to the hotspot, and it should be running about 30 minimum. I tried your "chat now" button for support, but it does nothing when I click it. I also tried messenger, and the guy left me mid conversation and never came back. I pay way too much (133 a month) for this service to not have reliabilty, speed, and support. Now get on it and figure out who messed up up the tower, please.

Thank you for clarifying. Are your services primarily impacted indoors, or outdoors? Also, is the service concern consistent, or does it seem to fluctuate?
