No one is providing broadband to a small city by tethering a phone.
A small city with a population of 150? If each person uses 13.5GB of data that's about 2TB, I don't think that it's so far fetched, especially if the other option is DSL

Did you try loading DDMS on a DSL connection  >:(? I'm no internet connection maven, but if you're getting download speeds of 60+mbps (which is normal for LTE) and spread that out to 150 users each would probably be able to get 3-5mbps (normal for DSL). Keep in mind this is totally uneducated, I might be VERY wrong.

Where are you getting 60+mbps?

No clue, apparently it's more like 20-25mbps. In that case I'll concede that it was tongue-in-cheek

In many cases LTE can be faster than Cable Internet, especially during peak times for 6-10pm when people are home from work and watching things online. It's for sure faster than DSL.

But not with 150 people going through one device.

If someone has a cloud with a few hundred GB and has multiple computers and downloads to desktop....there you go ( my Google drive is over 100 Gb, all work related )

Page plus announced that the $40 plan will include unlimited date. You can switch over.
1.5gb at high speeds and the rest is throttled
Yeah, I think I'll stick with TMO. Currently paying $200/month for 10 lines with unlimited talk/text/data, 2.5GB/month LTE per line.

That's exactly what I have, but paying slightly less for a total of 7 lines, same specs.
