I am a heavy data user on Verizon.

Either my Note 3 just has a horrible connection which I dont doubt that it deserves some of the blame or Verizon Throttles me.

I'm talking about 50-70 gig a month usually.

Does any other unlimited data users see their speeds below 1 mbps while connected 4G?

Its horrible.

Not on download, I did see it on upload the first few days of xlte.

But, my typical usage is 8 or so GB/month

Doubt it's the Note but since I've been on the nc2 I notice I lose connection and speed. Look at the pic and see the red bars. Some days I have a bunch of them.Click image for larger version

I have not had a single problem with cell service since I switched to VZ years ago until just lately.

Lately, half the time I try to text I get a "no network connection" error (I have UL Data)

Today, I got cut off on a call smack in my home area and the phone said "you are out of your coverage area" WTF??

It's gotta be a Samsung Verizon combo. I had the same horrible coverage with my Galaxy Nexus. I had a Note 2 on ATT and it was perfect.

I'm currently using a note 2 with unlimited data and not seeing any problems .. I'm going to add a second line with a note 3 it's priced at $200 with 2/yr contract, could it be the nc2 build you guys are using? Has anybody tried the nc4 KK and had problems?

edit:

When I mean nc4 I mean this rom with nc4 modifed for note 3

my signal in and around my area has been below par for the last few months. My real problem has been when I leave the area (usually the county for some strange reason) everything was fine except for making calls. When i would push send it would tell me my number is either inactive or invalid. Battled for over a month with Verizon on the issue and called them out on several occasions about them "doing something funny" to my line because I have unlimited data. went through a few replacement devices and nothing changed. Finally told them it didnt matter any more because I was gonna go to AT&T and now I can call anywhere when I travel! On the other hand my service at home is below par now but still works.

I average around 40-45gb of data a month now without tethering and have never noticed any throttling or significant drop in speeds.

For what its worth I had to go all the way back to the MJ7 radio. Both NC2 and MJE caused terrible drops and no service.
