I had a similar experience in my area when switching from AT&T to Verizon, but with 3G.My upload speeds on AT&T always sucked on my XSM. Since switching to Verizon they are way better. 30-60Mbit/sec UL on VZW is not uncommon.
In general, AT&T often has faster peak DL speeds than Verizon IMHO (AT&T customer for 20+ yrs, VZW for 3 months) but Verizon is much more consistent.
I ended up switching to my wife's Verizon account, she was just a GF at the time, but it was AT&T's customer service that influenced me to switch.My wife made me switch kicking and screaming.
=But I’m thinking she was right
YouTube videos.Curious what everyone is uploading that requires that much speed?
Still, neither require a rate nearly as high as the “low speed” you are complaining about.
I think most home Internet connections in US are still cable, and so asynchronous. It’s the way it works out with cable technology, but fortunately most consumers need much less upload bandwidth than download.
Typical cable plans have a 5:1 to 10:1 asymmetry between upload and download speeds.
Sure, I’m spoiled by 1GB symmetrical at home. But most users are served well enough by asymmetrical speeds.
I don’t see anything wrong with the upload speed you quoted for typical use.
Did you mean to write “download”?
I guess you meant to write “I meant download”?No I did not mean download sorry.
All three a fixed location, in a car with someone else driving, and at various fixed locations.I guess you meant to write “I meant download”?
Can you clarify? WATCHING YouTube videos, or uploading/live-streaming them?
Are you viewing in 4K? If so, on what mobile device that usefully supports 4K?
YouTube recommends 20mbps for 4K, and 5mbps for 1080.
Of course, mobile bandwidth will vary according to location and airspace loading. Are you in a fixed location, driving, or at various fixed locations?
Yes, 5G will be able to provide much higher speeds, but it will be selective location-wise.
