    Default Verizon speed caps broken?

    Friend claims his mom is only paying for 75/75, and his spoiled self entitled ass is over here sending me screenshots of 27MB/s download speeds, which is 3x what he SHOULD theoretically be getting. What memo did I miss? Is verizon allowing you to use your upload bandwith? are they doing some kind of temporary double speed special?
    He's a brat who gets everything he wants, but I don't quite understand how he thinks his moms only paying for 75/75 and he's getting speeds over 10MB/s ever.

    75MegaBits /8= 9.35 megabytes, So a speed of around ~10 Mb/s isn't uncommon to download at. Sometimes speeds will burst download fast and then settle to their capped rates. I wouldn't be too concerned or envious about the situation.

    I just don't believe he'd be downloading 3x his cap unless he's lying or just doesnt know his actual speeds

    Internet is a weird thing sometimes. Sometimes I get 80mbps while once I got 700mbps. It usually depends on the thru-traffic in the area I think.

    Well he lives in Philly, where comcast has basically owned the internet business for as long as I can remember. Maybe verizon is cheating a little bit in that area.
