I am not familiar with the equipment you are using but the slowest you should be connecting at is at least 60 Kbps. 1X speeds are that high or higher. Broadband connection speeds are much higher.
Connect at speeds bursting up to 144 Kbps, with typical speeds of 60 to 80 Kbps.
Broadband Access Rev A
Downloads — typical speeds of 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps Bursts up to 2000 kbps
Uploads — typical speeds of 500-800 Kbps
To best of my knowledge Verizon has discontinued Quick to Net along with analog cell transmissions.
I know that about four or five years ago when I got my aircard and a new phone they said they were going to charge $0.25 per minute for Q2N useage and would discontinue it entirely when they were allowed to get rid of analog. The FCC stop allowed date came and went some time back.
