I am on the Unlimited Bronze 12 plan. I did a speed test this morning around 9:30am and got over 18Mbps. This afternoon I did another speed test and got over 16Mbps at 4:00pm. This on a Friday afternoon. These are some of the fastest speeds I have seen in a while.

I've been noticing faster speeds the last two days also. I'm on the unlimited silver 25 plan and just clocked a download speed at 33mbps! Even achieved 18mbps down at 6:00 yesterday evening—totally unheard of the past few weeks/months. (normal has been between .5mbps and 2mbps.)

Why is that? If your speeds are high... you should be able to stream Netflix just fine. Viasat? Respond?

Detected video streams are throttled on the unlimited plans - depends on plan level as described in the unlimited data policy at:

However, gman may want to look at Ricky Dean's conversation and Gold experience over at:

There does appear to be a bug affecting some Gold plans. He's been able to work around the problem he was experiencing on the Gold plan on Netflix.

Well I'm not talking about streaming speeds. I don't stream, so don't really care about that. I'm just talking about regular using the net speeds.
