On a recent trip to Nashua, NH I had he chance to record some Speed Test Results for Visible. Visible is a prepaid wireless service that uses the Verizon network.
See my results below:
As you can see the download speeds are between 3Mbps and 4Mbps, which isn’t that fast for Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The upload speeds were good however, clocking in between 11 to 12.5 Mbps.
Keep in my that these speeds, are perfectly adequate for most of the common things people do withtheir phones.
Note, that I ran these tests at lunchtime. I suspect that the Verizon network wa busy at the time and we are seeing the results of prioritization. Visible states that when the network is busy, Verizon customers are given first priority on the network, and Visible customers will be slowed.
It’s important to understand that network conditions are changing all the time, and that your results could be completely different.
The only way you’ll truly know if Visible is right for you is to try the service yourself and decide if you are getting acceptable performance.
