I used to get 20Mbps+ all the time at home. I still get that often but with about 2Mbps when it hits the lowest. I've been seeing more of the 2Mbps during the day lately. With everything that is going on I think they are being heavily taxed right now. They probably got an influx of people wanting to take advantage of the unlimited data and you see more comments about using in a hotspot device, home internet etc. Unfortunately they are going to get abused in this situation which is bad news for us. You should be getting better speeds after midnight though.
Wow, that's pretty bad. My download speeds have been normal for my area. Attached are some readings all using the Moto e6 on Visible. The two readings for February were one with the hotspot enabled (5 megabit cap) and the other without (Tampa Bay area) Now, the upload has been rather low inside the house. Thankfully, I have not have to use the hotspot for work purposes. Hope it all works out for you!
Anyone reading this thread should look at my post about selecting LTE bands.
It turns out that deprioritization is not an issue. There are some LTE bands that are much slower than others and it all comes down to disabling those bands so that your phone only chooses from the faster bands.
I'm now enjoying consistent bandwidth of 12-14 Mbps and above.

Chelle, I would suggest deprioritization is very much the issue and you have figured out a way to work around it.
deprioritization works on a band level - its literally reducing your time to access the tower on the band so others can use it more than you.
This is what I think:
1. You have a lot of Verizon postpaid customers in your area, but they are not using band 5 (band 13 (700) is primary, then 4 (1700) after all)
2. You figured out a way to use B5 (850) and essentially work around deprioritization
Your connection quality will last as long as visible does not change their algorithm or band 5 in your area remains less crowded.
