    Default HTC One internet problems

    When my phone is on wifi it is really fast...no complaints.But when im on data and want to get on youtube or pretty much any app like youtube it loads SO SLOW that it irritates me,Facebook and instagram pictures load slow too.Its annoying that im scared it might be my phone thats slow....anybody else have this problem? My phone is fast everywhere else(not rooted).I clear my cache and uninstall all apps i dont use,i dont understand why it takes so long.Any way i can speed it up?

    its your data connection that is slow.


    either:

    1. you are in an area with poor signal

    2. you are in an area without LTE, HSPA+ or 3G


    your phone has nothing to do with the speed of what its being downloaded over mobile data or wifi. if anything gets downloaded the phone is working fine, the rest depends on external factors.


    in your phone's mobile network settings, under network mode, you can check which bands are enabled to work.

    i think it is.


    they claim to be the 5th network - presumably after t-mobile.


    their practices sound a bit dodgy and unconventional, however.

    It's a Mvno company running off of different networks. You have a choice of phones that run off Verizon, Sprint or byop either with AT&T or T-Mobile

    so how do they keep their prices down?

    I had st your data isn't unlimited although they say it is and if you use too much of your mins they can cut you off. If you read the fine print st expect for you to use wifi and no tethering.

    If i was running off of that network i wouldve answered and said at&t,I am on straight talk data and straight talk can throttle it or slow it down.Yeah,it uses at&t's towers but it doesnt control my data.Sorry you didnt make yourself clear ha.Does it matter what towers im using?

    Yeah the problem turned out that straight talk turns your data to 2g after you hit 2.5GB.Supposed to be unlimited but the fine print tells you its not,after i put new mins on my phone its back to 4G speed.

    those plans by straight talk i saw on their website are very misleading.


    $60 for international unlimited minutes?

    ya right.


    then it turns out in the fine print, that unlimited to them does not mean unlimited. i'm surprised no one has sued their asses by now.


    in any event you should talk to them. it seems you've gone over your data limit or something.

    i would get one of them free data management apps from the playstore.


    not only will they keep track of your data to make sure you dont exceed the limit but you can make sure you are actually getting all the 2.5GB they've promised.

    Yeah i read up on it last night.Someone did try to sue their asses,thats why its in the fine print now.They beat it because it really is unlimited but after 2GB it goes to E or 2G.So you still get internet you just dont want to use your internet anymore.Still better than a contract though.2GB is a good bit for a month.

    i suppose... but they don't subsidise your phone either.

    are their rates that much cheaper than getting att service without contract, for instance?

    You have to pay full price for the phones unless you want to get a straight talk branded phone but i didnt like any of them.I was on my dads contract and for just me and him our bill was in the $100s and he didnt have internet.Everybody i know is switching to ST,for $45 a month even if they do throttle data its still cheaper and if u cant pay one month,or if u forget then you can add minutes on your time...i wouldnt switch back.

    In Australia, "unlimited" almost always never actually means unlimited par for the course over here. We get raped on mobile/internet costs and fine print BS.
