    How much data did you end up using?

    I would be so screwed with data caps. According to my router we use between 10-70GB a day of data depending on if it’s a week day or a weekend day. We stream everything including our normal TV service.

    I’m sure Verizon would cap me big time.

    its an unlimited plan, no caps, just deprioritization
    and that depends on your tower congestion

    Verizon doesn’t have data caps, yet. I’m sure that would come down the pike later. Then again I’m sure my current ISP, Frontier, will do the same.

    Where our wheels go
    On a busy tower, my "deprioritized" hotspot speeds do slow down some, but it has never been slow enough to affect streaming or anything else including VOIP calls. Actually, I'm usually not even aware of the slow downs unless I'm logging the speeds at the time.

    I’ll definitely look at this once we lose our special pricing with Frontier and need to take a 30 day break to become a “new” customer.
