In the short time we’ve been on Total Wireless they’ve almost doubled the data amount we receive each month (from 8 GB to 15 GB). Originally when I had talked about our switch to Total, we knew that our data speeds were capped at 5 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up. That has since changed!
I run speed tests occasionally to see how well my phone is connecting. When the speeds were capped, it was reflected when doing the speed test. I’ve since been able to get speeds well over 5/1 Mbps depending on where I was at.
My fastest download speed clocked so far was 73.15 Mbps. The fastest upload speed was 28.72 Mbps. Those are well above even my home internet speed. Of course that’s not always what I get, but I tend to believe that when it’s slower it’s due to my signal and not because it’s being capped.
This is just one more reason to give Total Wireless a try. It’s coverage is almost as good as Verizon (since it uses Verizon’s network), but at a considerably lower price.
