Verizon Data Speeds - What Are You Getting?

Curious What Speeds Verizon users are getting with their phones.  In some cases, many people are getting faster speeds on Verizon  4G LTE than on Verizon Nationwide 5G.  Most people are not getting 5G UW. 

 

Btw, with Verizon, you're pretty much stuck on 5G if you have a 5G phone AND a 5G plan... - - There "may be" a way to turn off 5g with a 3rd party app...   Anyway, this thread is designed to get a feel for what others are getting with Verizon on Data Speeds.

 

If you can, indicate what part of U.S. you are in, which phone you have,  what type of data you're getting (4G LTE, Nationwide 5G or 5G UW)  and what are "regular daytime speeds" for you.  Thanks!

Thanks for contributing your data.  LTE is same as 4G LTE;  many have found that LTE is better/faster than Verizon's Nationwide 5G.   You situation seems to point to that fact.  I wonder if your region just doesn't have Nationwide 5G yet, or if it's because of your "unocked" phone on Verizon that you're not getting 5g...?  In any case, conngrats, you're doing much better than my Verizon Nationwide 5G service!

 

Thanks agian. - - Will be nice to hear from others too.

Sometimes my network is shown as LTE , most times it's at LTE+. There is a noticeable difference in performance with the Plus.

LTE+ may be a hybrid of 5G for Verizon unlocked. In-store, Verizon employees treat owners of unlocked phones like---well differently.

I believe LTE+ somehow combines two bands at one time... voice & data.  Your speeds are incredible so I would try to stay with it and not go to 5g.  I know there are supposed to be advantages of having unlocked phones (mine is Vzw s20+), but I haven't gone that route yet.  And  I guess the "special treatment" by Verizon employees goes with the package...   ;)
