tmoble claims 5g everywhere but they lie . sprint has gone downhill since the merger . i have to replace a phone wire with 5g wire . will go from box to router about 2-3 ft away . they swear it's good from box back to them so we'll see. i am hooked up secure to the router but i get the no internet service thing. once i replace the wire there's no more excuses for them .
to be honest i remember the days of no internet or cell phones . i hated my beeper the day i got it . shop called me every 30 min with a new problem .

I'm still hooked up to DTV, my youngest daughter said she ditched the cable, but once she added in Hulu, Amazon prime, Disney, Netflix, Apple and HBO, she was paying more than DTV and doesn't have nearly the content.

I mooch off of her Netflix*, Hulu* and got HBO Max free with Internet bundle.

* I hardly watch these channels.

My direct TV bill was $177 a month. My old shitty internet was $100 a month.
New internet $80, wife got the Discovery plus app at $7 a month. We also have a roku thing.

We can NOT do Hulu because the wireless hotspot shows our location outside our home zip. Some weird quirk with Hulu.

So far , I haven't missed a thing. Plenty of stuff to watch.

They claim the largest 5G footprint, certainly not that it's available everywhere. In most major cities and near interstates it's very fast and reliable. Get a mile or so away and you get 4G, head out to the woods and maybe 3G.

Starlink is a game changer. Ive read some great reviews.
EFFFFFFFFFF Hughes net. I'd rather pull a 3 some with Hillary and Pelosi before using that shit again

Can you detail typical usage? I'm a cell service sub of theirs, but "not in the service area" for home internet. What are max/min and typical speeds, if you've tested, as well as highest GB used in a billing cycle.

I hate that their service has been so bad for you because it's been better than ATT and VZW in the same areas I frequent. This is not atypical for me and on my Pixel 6.

I'd post my Spectrum speed test results, but I'd probably time out.
