I have Essential 10 which claims 12Mbps..Beginning about  6 months ago I stopped being able to play most games to a conclusion..The moves get slower and slower and eventually the screen just locks..If I change plans to one that claims 25Mbps will I be able to play chess again?

I have the 12GB Boost 25 I can play pogo game just fine but there no guarantee it will work for you depends on what beam you're in and how many peoples on that Beam too.

I'm on beam 339 and I can only play a little on Mozilla Firefox browser and not at all on Internet Explorer or Chrome browser..I just wonder if the Boost would help..Overall are you satisfied with your service and data usage you are charged for?

How can I tell if I have Firefox Developer Edition 64 bit?  Are there different versions that might be my problem?

You can tell what version you have by opening a browser and clicking on help and then about Firefox and it tell you what version you've got

Have you look at your eSVT to see if nothing is red?

Yeah don't get how their system calculate usage when you're not even on that much it's really screwed up

Just go down to English (US)  The first Download is 32bit the Next one is the 64bit
If you have a 64bit computer it would be better......
