USLTE - Internet Anywhere!

How to stream without using tons of data.

Streaming services such as Netflix, Roku, Amazon Prime, YoutubeTV, etc... cause massive amounts of data consumption. Using massive amounts of data on a LTE connection is a sure way to get deprioritized or even have your LTE connection terminated without notice. We'll go into detail on a few of these services to show you how to use less data.


Netflix.

From a computer or tablet:
  1. • Open your browser (i.e. Safari, Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc...)
  2. • Point your browser to Netflix.com
  3. • Choose your profile with administrative privileges.
  4. • Mouse over the profile icon at the top right of the screen and select Account
