    Default Anyone use Verizon 4G unlimited data for home internet?

    With the ability of our Androids to create a wireless hotspot it would seem if you have 4G service at home and unlimited data through Verizon, you could use it for home internet.

    Is anyone doing this? Is there a downfall? I get great speeds through my 4g, but would there be things I am not thinking of that might not work properly? Say for instance, playing xbox360 online.

    I guess the best bet for a test would be to unhook my cable internet for awhile and get everything hooked up to the wifi on my phone but before going through all that I was wondering if anyone had general feedback on the subject. Will Verizon go crazy if I am downloading 100GB a month?

    Please discuss, thanks

    Don't do it. Yes they will go crazy, and don't do that to your phone.

    No they won't go crazy. What's your source? Do you have proof of this? I regularly go over 100 per month.

    There is no set policy on that. Its on VZW's whims

    It's stable enough for browsing but I wouldn't use it to play video games.

    Not for home Internet but I use it for my primary work connection. I find that using the USB cable is quicker and more reliable than wireless. Can't speak for if vzw will catch you since I pay extra for the MHS as my company pays my bill.
