If the device is located outside of the 4G Mobile Broadband Coverage Area, then the device reverts to a 3G Mobile Broadband connection, if available. When connected to 3G Mobile Broadband, the device does not experience the same speed or throughput.
Determining Signal Type
Determining Signal Strength
From the VZ Access Manager main screen, locate the signal strength indicator (located to the right of the available networks).
If the device is experiencing low or no signal strength, ensure the antenna is fully extended and perpendicular to the computer. If signal strength does not improve, move the device to a location where it receives a stronger signal.
