Or use a cellular hotspot and steam your content - if you have a decent signal. We used to live on top of a mountain with no hard wired internet. Decent plan on a hotspot allowed us to stream, work remote and handle anything a hard wired internet would do. Performance was far superior to Satellite. (we had Sat too at one point for comparison)

We have Verizon unlimited on 3 devices. We do not stream anything and use up all 3 high speed allotment of 15gb each device by the 20th of each month. You must be dreaming.

More interested in them than you are of looking at the Facts in the links i have posted. Believing something because you have chosen to put Satellite in your name doesnt make you an expert on it. More data (in the guise of knowledgeable sources), less opinion supports a position. Or at least try to understand the tech of Starlink. I'd be glad to help you understand any of it youre having trouble with if youd ask.

How can you have unlimited data and have a 15gb allotment? - that's contradictory. Not sure if you're calling me a liar but I must be living the dream because that's my reality. I was trying to help you since I had a similar situation. I have a real unlimited data plan and it's cheaper than what Sat and a TV subscription was. Keep balking at it if you want, but options are out there. But don't tell me I don't know what I am talking about.

I have a Verizon prepaid plan, that they don't offer currently, that is truly unlimited with no throttling. They say is it managed in the case of tower loading, but I have never noticed a slowdown.

I constantly keep my eyes open for new truly unlimited plans since they change.

We’ve had Verizon for 20+ years and got their “unlimited “ plan when it first came out many years ago. Unlimited high speed to 15GB per device per billing cycle then throttle back to 3g barely able to get email.

If it is unlimited only to a specified cap, it is not really unlimited. Regardless of what marketing chooses to call it.

I see you are simply going to continue to insult be so there is no further point trying to have an actual discussion. You appear to be the only one here saying you know it all despite the service not existing as of today (other than the Beta).
When the service becomes available we will finally be able to discuss reality and not how the service will work "on paper".
Price, speed, hardware, installation, mobility......so many questions.
Oh by the way, you may continue your insults but I will no longer respond to or acknowledge your pathetic attempts at degradation in hope of furthering your own self-worth.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Doesn't matter if it's a marketing ploy or not - if it's all that's available we're stuck with it. Those of you with truly unlimited plans are fortunate, but those plans are no longer available for a reasonable price, so we peons must make do with what is available today, or wait until someone invents a time machine so we can go back in time and purchase one of those grandfathered "real unlimited" plans...

Have you looked at Verizon's "Visible" subsidiary? Unlimited talk, text, and LTE data for as low as $25/month. Tethering is allowed...
