Sorry to bring this question here, very non-guitar related and all. We live in a rural area where the only internet/cable options are satellite and microwave broadband. We have been on microwave broadband for several years, after a couple of disappointing years on satellite, but still have the satellite dish for TV. Still, on microwave our speeds are very slow -- 0.9 Mbps download is the best I have clocked at speedtest.net. For my phone, I have been on Verizon wireless for about a decade now, and my wife switched to AT&T a couple of years ago when we discovered that AT&T had a much stronger signal than Verizon at our house. (The Verizon signal at home is very weak.) A few months ago I got the bright idea that we should ditch the broadband, Verizon (when the contract ran out), and our satellite dish at one time. I thought we would get a digital antenna and we could stream video, music and have internet via an AT&T wifi hotspot. My Verizon contract is up this week, so this weekend we went to the AT&T store and purchased the hotspot device along with a substantially increased data plan. (AT&T is having a promotion this month whereby you get twice as much data as you would normally get for the price.) Before taking the plunge I checked AT&T's speed using my wife's phone. I disconnected from the wireless network at home and using only the AT&T cell signal, I ran three passes on speedtest.net with a result of something over 39 Mbps each time. Three hours at the AT&T store -- big crowd -- and we brought the new device home and got everything connected. I ran speedtest on my wife's laptop and my PC and the best speed I got was something a little over 2 Mbps. Why such a huge discrepancy? I'm not knowledgeable at all about wifi, cell signals, or any of that sort of thing beyond getting everything connected and running. I realize that these hotspot devices are not really intended for video streaming. I've seen reviews for this device with download speeds close to 15 Mbps so I thought this would be a way to consolidate some bills and have one provider for all of our phone/internet/entertainment devices. Now I'm afraid that I've purchased a device and committed to a data plan that will be useless to me.
