    This is a awesome video!! You should do it with Verizon! I get good speeds but sometimes when tower is busy it’s under 1 MB.

  2. ARG ElJefe on July 12, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    I’m sorry I had to correct you on that my girlfriends house had cricket wireless for the last three years now and cricket on the $60 plan it gives you up to 22 gigs of party data and then they slow you down in times of congestion if there’s no congestion where you live our AT&T then you’re not gonna deal with slow speeds from cricket cricket has a 22 gigs of party data just like AT&T prepaid

  3. Sean Hughes on July 12, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    Can you compare Los Mobile QCI 6 vs Prepaid Unlimited Plus?

  4. Moises Sandoval on July 12, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Hello, has anyone tested los mobile? I was wondering if it’s legit or not on what they have to offer?

  5. Shadow The Black Cat on July 12, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    Straight Talk also has the same limit as Pure Talk does! You should do some more of these but add Straight Talk to the mix! Id like to see how their Verizon and T-Mobile variants do vs. postpaid

  6. First name on July 12, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    at&t sucks in florida, i got no reception in some buildings with them.

  7. David Villatoro on July 12, 2021 at 9:11 pm

    This was a really good in depth video explaining all tiers. Thank you for doing this, itll help a lot of potential customers decisions easier. Confirms my assumptions about att, but did not know about pure talk, not bad if youre not worried about ping/jitter. I wish ATT was more easy going unlocked devices like tmobile or verizon (att 3g sunset), your non att unlocked phone must be whitelisted or no VOLTE/WIFI CALLING/5G

  8. Storm J on July 12, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    I have AT&T Prepaid and have been very satisfied. They’re pretty awesome here in Cincinnati.

  9. DUMP BIDEN on July 12, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    those speeds look like t mobile speeds lmao , i get 300 down and 50 up with att prepaid i dont under stand how you are getting all those varible results like that and you will get different results on different phones, you should have have used same phone and switch sim card and test them

  10. jeo726 on July 12, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    I’m on a 5 line account. I just upgrade my line from extra to elite plan for a extra $10 a month, and I noticed the slight speed bump at work where my speed was at a crawl. Now it’s usable going from about 4mbps up to 15-25 with the updated plan. The difference in priority was noticeable.

  11. mr.unkown x on July 12, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    AT&T is a great carrier my speeds are 200 Mbps in Cincinnati and Kentucky. Sometime time I hit 300 mbps

  12. Anshuman Saini on July 12, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Can you check the QCI of Verizon plans? Or is it online somewhere

  13. TheJaffaMeme on July 12, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    You might want to disable the second sim on devices that are dual sim on iOS. I’ve found dual sim makes speeds slower as well as introduces oddities, at least during my own testing.

  14. Amy on July 12, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    Awesome video Stetson. Hope we see Military/Veteran , First Responders Teachers etc plan from Big 3 or comparisons soon. 😀😀😀😀😀

  15. M Ortiz45 on July 12, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    In my area, Cricket is capped at 3.5mbps down and 750 kbps up.

  16. Jamazing on July 12, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Really like these videos, have you done one for Verizon’s network yet?

  17. lefton4ya on July 12, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Great test, you keep getting better, it is done more scientific and better presentation than your previous T-Mobile and Verizon comparisons. The only improvement would be to run in a 3rd highly congested location (such as downtown or college campus) and at different times (6pm for busiest, 2 am for least congested). Your next test should compare 5G from different networks and priority levels.

  18. Ramon Brito on July 12, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Now do Verizon and T-Mobile please

  19. Pulsations on July 12, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Is the elite hotspot good for gaming

  20. Clint Blankenship on July 12, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Excellent review of att plans!

  21. SteveOstereo on July 12, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    I have BOOM Blue. Boom Mobile AT&T SIM and network. When I connect to the small cells on my Samsung S9 on b5 sometimes with b46CA I’ve seen LTE Speeds over 400mbps!

  22. Brandon Allen on July 12, 2021 at 9:25 pm


  23. Aidan Tejada on July 12, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    You were not kidding

  24. E Jz on July 12, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    Can you test xfinity mobile

  25. syed hashir on July 12, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    2025: stetson launching best mvno overall

  26. Fred Williams on July 12, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Great video! If it is not too much trouble, would it be possible to test the hotspot speeds for the plans that allow it?

  27. xSWAGCATx on July 12, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Hey stetson. I have a question 👋 What are the priority Levels of Verizon? I’m not sure if you mentioned that in your Verizon ultimate speed test.

  28. A K on July 12, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    This is why MVNO or prepaid isn’t always the best way to test coverage and service.

  29. Antoine george on July 12, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    I was waiting for this test we saw t mobile and Verizon already

  30. Michael 2k3d on July 12, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    Would love to see this done on Tmobile vs Mint and Verizon vs Visible. Thanks for your time and work.

  31. Timman 36 on July 12, 2021 at 9:38 pm

    Any plans to do this with vzw and T-Mobile next? If You didn’t that already then I missed it

  32. Jorge L Figueroa on July 12, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    After seeing this now I’m between Cricket & AT&T prepaid for 2 lines (family) plans🤔🤔. Good comparison video , well explained👏🏾👏🏾

  33. Cream Ice ••••••• on July 12, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Would definitely look forward for tests with other carriers, and good job!

  34. Evan Dong on July 12, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Great video, Stetson! Los Mobile? FirstNet?

  35. Super MAN on July 12, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    I believe ios slow down because I’m an iPhone 8

  36. Vincent Ballistrea on July 12, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Awesome video Stetson! I had heard in a different video that you went to IC. That’s the market I live in. Glad to know we have something in common. I did have one question for you. With these plans the ones that only give 480p did you still get 480 with 5 G access? Standard def would be low with over 100 mps speeds. I think if you went post paid the obvious choice is elite. Combo that with circled in and your golden on att. Again just my two cents

  37. VJ Aguirre on July 12, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    I have puretalk and I get around 100Mbps. So i’m not sure why it was bad for you

  38. Eduardo Cuevas on July 12, 2021 at 9:48 pm

    This video is top notch, really well done. Only thing is that upload speeds are not subject to prioritization.

  39. TheReelTBELL on July 12, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Wing Alpha AT&T in the house here!

  40. DUMP BIDEN on July 12, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    great job on the video

  41. Daniel Andrade on July 12, 2021 at 9:51 pm

    Do you have data saver on and do you have the iPhones on allow more 5g data

  42. Adam Rush on July 12, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Now I’m curious about TMobile and Verizon 😂👍 good video

  43. AbdulMuiz Khan on July 12, 2021 at 9:54 pm

    You’re one of the best cell plan reviewers out there you should definitely consider getting a robot arm kind of like PhoneBuff to eliminate any variation in start time that way it can truly be a head to head comparison

  44. Justin Smith on July 12, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    This was an incredible video! I’d love to see an updated one for Verizon and T-Mobile with a similar methodology. I do wish more locations were tested though.

  45. Moses Balderas on July 12, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    Awesome video I needed!!!

  46. Matthew Leifson on July 12, 2021 at 9:56 pm

    This has me having second thoughts about switching to cricket..

  47. Brady Snelgrove on July 12, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Wow! Ur editing was amazing in this video! Love it!

  48. Terminator on July 12, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    in canada my LTE speeds are faster than AT&T elite 5G

  49. Marc Possoff on July 12, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    What a great detailed test. Personally AT&T is good enough for me for a smartphone. You can pretty much do anything with starter speeds.

  50. JamesAutoDude on July 12, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Where’s the Verizon test tho?? In the same spot would be awesome
