Reduced Data Speed When Mobile Hotspot Tethering
How much reduction in data transfer speed should I see on my tethered laptop through Mobile Hotspot versus data speed on the phone?
For example: I do a speedtest on the phone and get 5 megs down, tether to my laptop and do a speedtest on it and the speed is one tenth. Is tethering throttled?

Re: Reduced Data Speed When Mobile Hotspot Tethering
Ok, my original post was from my work location which is a bit more suburbia than my home location. Tested from home and get the following:
First, testing phone data throughput on phone alone:
6 megs down, 3 megs up with speedtest app
13+ down 5+ up with Speakeasy browser speedtest
On laptop with Mobile hotspot
4.9 megs down 4.5 megs up with speedtest.net web page
21 megs down , 6 megs up with Speakeasy browser speedtest
So I don't really know how to get a consistent measure of the data throughput of the mobile hotspot.
