Hi all, so my internet went down the other week for some reason so i thought i will use my phone as a hotspot, never done it before so thought why not,
Had a little usb wifi dongle thing so put that in the pc.
I live quite rurual so on bt internet i only get about 1.8MB/s pretty damm slow,
Im on three for my mobile , unlimited data etc etc.
Connected it up and downloaded COD at between 10 and 12 MB/s , i was very happy , couldnt believe it .
my internet came back on so i carried on as usual using the bt fibre ,
A big patch for cod came out so i though , no probs i'll just hotspot it, however when i dosconnected the lan and connected the hotspot , i got 2.0MB/s
And thats it i cant get it to go any faster, im using it agin now for the current cod patch, 1.9MB/s , just as useless as the home connection.
Why did i get this amazing speed (for me) just once and never again??
As above, I think you’re probably being penalised for breaking the terms of your data, I can’t imagine they’d offer an all you can eat data sim which allowed tethering or people would run their homes on it!
Thanks guys I thought this too however I contacted on their website and was shown this.
Three offers truly unlimited data on SIM Only, Pay Monthly and Pay As You Go phone plans, as well as unlimited Mobile Broadband plans. There are no speed restrictions on Three's unlimited data plans and you can tether as much data as you like.
I don't think that it's 3 throttling you. It's more likely that it's the server the COD patch is on. If everyone is downloading from the same server they'll limit the speed to serve more people. I'm on 3 and regularly hit 6-700gb download per month. Anything upto a terabite per month on 3 and they're fine. If you read their fair usage small print it says upto 1000gb per month on unlimited plans
Oh and the fact that your home b/b is downloading the patch at the same speed also points to the COD server limiting download speeds

Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
