How to get your modem to stay in the faster broadband instead of switching back to the slower national access.

here is how to do it;

-open the verizon screen thing
-click disconnect, or make sure it isnt connected to the internet
-hit control + d
-enter this in the password spot; diagvzw (just copy and paste it)
-a box opens, click settings
-click for it to only use "HDR"
-click save or whatever it is
-wait for it to adjust your device
-close box and close verizon box WHEN ITS DONE adjusting your device
-wait a couple minutes for good measure
-restart verizon software and log on, supposedly this will let the modem only connect to the faster service.

i've used it all day this way and never seen the slower national access since.

side note;
apparently if they do one of their update things, you may have to reset the settings back to this.
also, as i understand it prevents roaming onto another carriers towers, say you were traveling with it and a laptop and there wasnt a verizon tower available....so consider switching it back if having problems while traveling.
