    I was on BestBuy.com checking the weekly deals on phones. I noticed Verizon is offering early upgrades on any line that's 7 or more months in their current DPP. I'm not sure if they try to switch you to a different data plan. I'm surprised this wasn't advertised. Here's a couple screen shots.

    I do wonder how they're going to lower my device access fee from $9.99 to $20.00 per month. Lol.

    Note, that's only if you are on a contract with a subsidized device, NOT in a current DPP.

    Correct. I guess they're trying to you from jumping to another carrier. I'm not going to take the bait.

    For a single line it is

    20 line access
    65 udp
    -5 auto pay

    If on contract then you will have to pay a $20 surcharge until the contract is up

    Only tonight when I was at a part of town that is super jam packed... But honestly not sure if I was being throttled since my gf who is at 5 GB could only pull 1 Mbps .. and friend on AT&T unlimited (fresh cycle) did the same. I think the area was just slammed because once I was out about 2 miles I got speed again.

    Oops I out the wrong on lol the 16 Mbps was 2 miles out.. the 30 Mbps is my living room.

    Great info. Thanks. Worth following. If you get the chance keep us informed on possible throttling incidents.

    Are you not using WiFi at home now? I am curious how you're hitting such high amounts. I used to do that when I watched a ton of Netflix but not since then.

    I watch a lot of live streaming stuff at work.

    At home I use wifi. I have 1 Gbps at home so I prefer to use it. Below is a test (did it after the LTE one) on my wifi .

    For some reason your pictures never show up for me on Tapatalk.

    I get 125mbps right now but there is a full fiber company installing wire here so I have 1Gbps soon enough!

    ...Extra $20 for being on-contract?

    As far as I know, this will end your current contract early and let you buy a new phone on DPP, so you wouldn't be on-contract.

    If doing DPP ends contract and drops the $20 extra charge for being under contract, might as well put that $20 towards a phone unless your close to being out of contract.

    Has me thinking

    Oh, ok. Yeah it was hard to tell initially whether or not that would go away with this new upgrade thing - it doesn't.
