While I do know some of that basic stuff, I really do appreciate seeing someone explain beginner stuff without derision. Too many people act like pricks nowadays just because someone else doesn't yet know what they know, especially online, so it's nice to see you and the other posters in this thread not doing that shit. I've been having a shitty day, and that fact lessens it a bit.
And yeah, even when I'm getting the worst download speed I typically get, it's still way better than when I was using dial up. The dial up here was terrible, like, "you're pleased to get 8kb/s on a download" terrible.
Videos, Steam stuff, mods, you name it. I'd like to live as what has become a normal person, with the ability to buy games digitally, keep my games and other software updated, get instructions for and answer questions about things online while the situation is still relevant. Maybe even play online multiplayer on occasion.
Sometimes I do watch or download youtube stuff at low res, but sometimes a lot is lost in the lowering of the detail.
Anyway, my main thing is that Verizon has me for around $80 a month, and after my 15gb limit on 4g speeds for mobile hotspot data, i'm supposed to be getting downgraded to ~600kb/s download speed, which would be ok, if I actually got that. The best I get is around 100-120kb/s. Since it's my only real choice, I'm just looking to more get my money's worth out of it.
I'm posting here again mainly to thank the people who posted after I already popped in and said thanks, and to give an update on the situation.
I did some checking into a network extender that samsung offered, that i could get through verizon, but discovered that you had to have a seperate broadband connection for it to be hooked up to to boost the cell signal. so that's out. I got told to check out a place called "weboost", which I'm doing (very expensive), and it looks like it might work.
I'll look into those, too.
Thanks again to everyone trying to help, and especially for helping without being a dick.
