Mobile Hotspot is Super Slow
My mobile hotspot is super slow, even though my phone has great download and upload speed where I'm at. I have a Samsung S20 phone. I'm on the Unlimited Elite plan and I'm not even close to being throttled because of usage (I've only used 6.1GB so far this cycle). To be clear, it does work and my computer can connect to my phone's hotspot just fine. My computer says I have internet and it will eventually download a web page or file, but it takes a very long time.
A good example right now. I have 3 bars of 5G on my phone right now. Ookla speedtest says 43.4 Mbps down and 3.02 Mbps, ping is 26ms, jitter is 7ms - running on my phone. If I go to https://www.att.com/support/speedtest/ (which is powered by Ookla), the page load alone is over 2 minutes, download is decent at 0.7 Mbps, ping is 29ms, jitter is 7ms and it is stuck at 2.6 Mbps right now trying the finish the upload portion of the test. I can reload the page and try again and I get varying levels of speed, ping and jitter, but it takes a couple of minutes each time to find the optimal server and actually start the test.
I'm having to type this forum post while connected to my Verizon hotspot, which I'm desperately trying to get rid of, due to cost... Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
