    I can't get cable where I live so I use a Verizon router with a grandfathered data plan. I normally have full 4g signal and 47-60ms ping the download speed ranges from 1mbs to 20mbs. Lately, I have been experiencing more and more problems with it, games lagging me out, always playing on a red connection bar, being kicked out of parties by Xbox live. and getting all kinds of error codes, because of connection issues. Normally I am the only person using the internet, and I am wired in. My main game is destiny. Is there anything I can do to fix this? just ask and I can give as much additional info as you need.

    Is this a Verizon mobile plan or an actual broadband connection?

    There's nothing you can do nor will Verizon do anything. You're dealing with two issues: RF and any contention issues at the tower you're connected to. Because infrastructure upgrades cost big money for these providers, this is the reason why there are hard cellular data caps. You can thank both the way telecoms are allowed to operate here in the States and bandwidth abusers.

    That's the reason right there in a nut shell....you'll never achieve ISP hardline speeds with a mobile connection.
