    Forgive me if this has already been asked. Thinking about going with the Verizon $40/month prepaid plan. I understand that postpaid gets network priority. Does anyone have the prepaid, and if so do you experience slow speeds?

    Priority doesn't refer to speed, it refers to "you don't get internet because a lot of postpaid customers on that tower are using it". Why would they spend money to add speed-throttling equipment when they don't need it?

    Prepaid is always on de-pri which basically means if the area is congested you are slowed down first. If there is no congestion then the speed will be what's available in the area.
