I have an iPhone 7 which consistently gets 25 Mb plus speeds, up to 50 Mb. I picked up an AT&T homebase which I understand is a test in our area. I've seen slightly higher, but my average speeds are well under 5 Mb. I know I lose some to Wi-Fi, but my speed shouldn't be so slow I don't feel. I'm considering returning the homebase while I still can and adding a hotspot to my data plan and maybe upgrading to the unlimited plan. Can anyone tell me if the hotspot would or should at least get the same speed as my iPhone? I don't know why this homebase is so much slower but I've tried two of them and they're both the same. Is anyone familiar with the homebase, or does anyone have one? I'm wondering if there's anything I can do because I like this idea better than the hotspot.

If I go unlimited data and they never am on Wi-Fi, what do I lose as far as iCloud services? I know it won't back up in less I'm on Wi-Fi, but what about photos and other items syncing between my iPhone and iPad?
