    installing a custom Rom, will that give you more free space? Like a "senseless" Rom? Since all that dumb Verizon/amazon/Google won't be on there?

    Depends on how de-crapified it is. But generally, yes.

    Medium is the only way to eat steak.

    Somewhere between 10 and 200 gets you throttled... probably closer to 200. But still. I don't mean slightly slower, I'm talking LTE download speeds of generally between 10 and 20 percent of my upload rate. I expected to deal with throttling, but I also expected to have usable internet for my apartment at the same time. It's disappointing.

    There's also a new tower going up about 700 meters from my apartment complex with LTE panels on it. Since it's brand-new, it's likely to be a carrier other than Verizon... but it'd be awesome if it weren't.

    Wow, VZW started throttling LTE users?

    And how's it hangin', chatter? Haven't been in for a while. Been busier than a one-legged man in an a$$-kicking contest.

    Also played a bunch of Ingress on my commutes.

    I'm starting to suspect that Google shipped an empty box just to show that my order had gone out after I complained. Unbelievable.

    Is Ingress everything that we imagine it to be?

    The C-Block spectrum rulings are the ones that outlined carriers' restrictions on throttling data and discriminating against data usage scenarios (tethering, etc.). To the best of my knowledge, there is one exception which allows throttling.

    If the carrier can support, by means of specific evidence, that an individual's network usage is causing significant and noticeable network strain on a single tower or network line to the point that it will likely have a detrimental or disruptive impact on other users connected through said network point, the carrier may take action to restore a balance to that network point without disrupting service to the offending user.

    Don't quote me on it, but that's my understanding. I read up on this stuff for hours, both for work and for personal interest.

    Thanks for the explanation ^. I don't use that much data (a lot of WiFi), but I could see using more in the future. Also, I wonder how my comment below is impacting my data consumption...

    Is Ingress everything that we imagine it to be?
    It's addictive. Though I'm trying to power-level as much as possible before many more invites go out. Leveling seems to be a bit easier when you don't have the competing faction slowing you down. In my area, there is no competition.

    My normal commute home is about 35-40 minutes. My Ingress commute home is probably in the 1.5 hour range.

    Problem is you need to hack portals to acquire items to deploy. And you can only hack the same portal 4 times in 4 hours (though you only need to wait 5 minutes between hacks). So you have to cover some ground if you really want to build your inventory.

    Also, leveling early on is easy. But it slows down as you get higher. Higher-level players don't earn experience points at a higher rate than lower-level players (rate meaning per defined user action). Higher-level players can complete those actions more frequently, but not enough so to make leveling happen at a consistent pace. It took me one day to get to level two. And one more day to get to three. I'm now through another day and just shy of halfway to level four. The players at level 7-8 must have been playing from the start, and not taken any breaks. For reference, level two comes at 10k experience points and level eight is at 1.25 mil.
