Determining Internet Connection Speeds


  • At times, Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband may fall back to 4G LTE speeds.
  • Based on location, devices without CDMA rely on coverage provided by other carriers. In these areas data speeds may be limited.
  • Ensure there are no apps running in the background that may be utilizing the connection.
    Note Some apps (e.g., Windows & Antivirus Updates, File Sharing apps, etc.) can consume a significant amount of bandwidth and decrease the connection throughput.
