The ads mess up my ipads as well. My phone seems to cope ok.

I have nothing other than cellular connection. For iPad and iPhone. Because of that (Cdn data is expensive and capped), I've tested the usage for ATS in my settings, and it uses 1 mb per clicked page.

It's one of the best (lowest) places on the web to visit.

Thankfully no issues with the ads. Only pop ups are blocked.

I just use the iPad. I think if I use my laptop with the phone as a hotspot, it uses even more data. Not sure though. The laptop is definitely slower than the tablet, but it's older too.

I can't put pics on ATS without jumping through a gazillion hoops though, which I miss. Resizing and such.

My pages don't load correctly when I disable adblock. The Chrysler ad has repeatedly frozen my browser. I do it anyway because I love ATS, but some of these ads are killing my user experience.

I have unlimited data with T-Mobile and can browse and even game on my cellular hot spot. Not sure what your issue would be.

Agreed.

I browse ATS in my Note 4. All is well. The only time I use the laptop is during serious debates, the big guns.

It depends on the connection. Personally, I can't stand mobile connections but some people don't have any other option. If you're on a 4G network things are usually responsive enough.

Interesting fact you're probably not aware of. With the massive increase in mobile browsing over the past couple years, average internet speeds have actually dropped. All the major pages are aware of this trend, and have been decreasing in page size rather than increasing. The internet at large hasn't caught on yet though.

For what it's worth, ATS is pretty lightweight. I've never had a slowdown due to adds, but for the most part I don't get them as long as I'm logged in due to post count/star count (not sure which it is).

Where you live, and your carrier can matter a lot.

Even the EM interference in your home can have a big impact. In one room in my apartment for example, my wifi is a lot slower than in the other rooms due to the wiring between the walls. In another room, due to a hill my phone signal is rather poor.
