I never really thought to test this before, but I got to wondering... Why are my devices so slow when hot spotting to my phone? They should be pretty fast I would think. A speed test on my phone (Verizon) shows about 35Mbps upload and download, but when connecting that phone as a hotspot to my iPad, I get 0.60Mbps download and upload. When I connect my Macbook Pro I get 0.63Mbps and 0.55Mbps download and upload. Hotspot speeds should be around 30Mbps according to most tech data I've seen. What gives?
