As a trucker, I am pretty much streaming all day off my phone connection (iheart or music) and occasionally it cuts out. I look down, full 5g UC signal…..but can’t maintain the bit rate of a radio station. These are MAJOR interstate corridors (Interstate 80, 5, 84, 40, 10).
Then I park for the night off of these major freeways and use my home internet. Again, excellent signal in the app, and yet currently at .4 Mbps down. Can’t watch anything or play any online games with that.
Yes I have restarted all devices, multiple times. I can’t always just keep driving or moving around because we’re on a clock. I end up buying truck stop internet which is usually trash but better than .4 down. And if I am buying it, whats the point of paying for my devices.
Am I just unlucky with tower issues or is something else going on? Phone is Pixel 7 pro, home internet is 5G Gateway S1. Tomorrow I’ll be 800 miles away in another state and it will be fine. It’s nights like tonight that are really annoying.
