  1. I uploaded the stock firmware here, download that and flash it in Odin. It will likely reset the phone but you'd be updated. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. I'm personally not on USCC, but these are the speeds I get Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. I'm really glad I wasn't alone in this thought. I remember that - and couldn't help but think it had to be a similar reason. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. From what ive read ATT and USCC are the only "unlimited" that throttle anything. VZW doesnt mention it at all in any form, nor do they have "tiers" of unlimited - like SD or HD. So I think VZWs unlimited is just that, full speed until 22GB then you might be throttled based on congestion.
  5. I would imagine you'd for sure have better than 1.5 - because 1.5 is what 480p would stream at. For 720/1080 you'd need ~5-6mbps on the very low end for x264 video. More than likely 8 - 12mbps to stream 1080p So youd likely be above 1.5, but idk how much more - and idk if its capped at Xmbps rather than just being as fast as it can be in that area, without an artificial cap.
  6. What Fatboy said is correct, the HD plan is +$20/mo per line. Again, it could also be throttled, idk, but based on their expectations of 1.5mbps for 480p (actually seems accurate, but still...) I feel that throttling EVERYTHING is a pretty bad move. If it only applied to streaming Netflix or YT then I get it - but it appears that isn't the case. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. The HD plan would allow streaming at 720p or 1080p. While the SD plan would only allow streaming at 480p Max No I don't know if the HD plan has any kind of speed throttle on it at all, it could but I don't have any confirmation of that. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. I would like to point out that that phone is technically designed to work on gsm networks outside of the United States. (Iirc) (in like 1%of the world) Idk if they are or not but I'm guessing not - based on language. If it we're on ATT or TMO domestically I'd be pretty surprised. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. To be fair their "unlimited" is advertised as "unlimited" - and thats it Only once you go into the store to pick a plan - you might be told about the SD and HD plans - HD having the higher speeds (how high, idk) and SD being...well, you saw it. I feel like they really did kind of trick a LOT of people with this, and most never even knew there were different speed options - only that unlimited was what they wanted, and got it. Fraud? I think thats a stretch, but I do believe most customers were heavily misled by it.
  10. Just saying - if you reach out to them on twitter, ig, facebook... pointing out that there is proof of the throttling being that dramatic, it will get a LOT more attention and a lot of people who otherwise wouldnt have known about it would be aware of it. Personally, I had no idea it was that dramatic... the difference is amazing

  12. That's what I would have assumed, also - but speedtests are not streaming, yet they are severely throttled.
  13. Those speeds are ridiculous - they shouldn't have "SD" and "HD" it should be whatever speeds you're SUPPOSED to get and throttled at 22GB (if they're going to throttle) - which is BS in the first place. I hate it that its knocked to those pathetic speeds. That's 3G speeds (HTC Merge is ringing a bell) they had ... God, 8 years ago? I agree it's way worse that I would have expected. Does anyone happen to be on the "HD" plan that can compare? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. I would agree that I thought the same - but idk how they handle it on the back end. This is the 3rd time I've heard of this happening, though. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. That's the "SD" speed they said. They have SD and HD speeds. HD speeds would be higher (idk how much higher) and when several members of my family moved to the unlimited SD plan I didn't see a change in speed but maybe it takes awhile for them to go into effect.
