    The only thing consistent about Visible is their inconsistency. I have had it for seven weeks. The speeds vary drastically from unusable to good from one moment to the next. I have not observed any...

    It allows wireless charging that a metal back would not. It appears to be a more premium material than cheap plastic. I think they are fiber reinforced so they don't break all that easily.

    I have...

    It all depends on how the number of subscribers are counted and none of the carriers count them the same way. It's mostly marketing spin at this point. T-Mo bought Sprint and bingo! they can now add...

    Visible is an experimental service. The service is routed through a few proxy servers around the country where it is passed over the IMS core rather than the regular Verizon system. You wind up with...

    What phone are are you using for Verizon and how is it not working as well now - talk, text, data? Depending on the phone, it may not work well or at all on the Sprint or T-Mobile network.

    Tello...

    IIRC, you are an accountant. I bet you would agree that there is no shame in not wasting money. Personally, I don't just save money, I invest it. Delayed gratification can be hard to get started....

    The assertion that AT&T is in trouble. Serious trouble is not supported by the facts. That sounds like wishful thinking by a T-Mo super fan.

    In the first quarter of 2020 AT&T had a profit of $1.2...

    T-Mo put more of their 600 MHz spectrum on 5G than LTE. In my area 10x10 MHz 5G, 5x5 MHz LTE. 5G being faster is no surprise. That's nice for those who want to buy a 5G phone now.

    T-Mo is building...

    What "could" happen if the phone is connected to the Internet over WiFi is someone could take complete control of the phone and have complete access to all of the contents and communications that...

    I basically agree, except I would use the metric of income (profit) rather than revenue (sales). Sprint had an ok looking revenue, but did not make a profit for over ten consecutive years. There...

    Something like 10% of students in my county do not have broadband Internet at home. It's a real mess just figuring out what to do for the 10%.

    The county is a hodge podge of cable and FIOS with...

    Probably not unless they think the goodwill of giving away service is worth more than it costs. The pandemic struck basically without warning. T-Mo thought the goodwill generated was worth the cost....

    Basically the same reason that GM sells Cadillacs, Buicks, and Chevrolets. Different price points and features to capture more of the overall market. Study some business and marketing and learn how...

    I received the same message today. It looks like Tello may finally drop the hammer on our legacy paygo deposit plans. They warned us about it a year or so ago.

    I deposited $5 02/04/2017 to keep my...

    Amen to that. I have been asking contractors/service people who come to our houses for 20 years what carrier they use. It has been 100% Verizon. Ditto my employer. Ditto the government depts. we...

    You will probably need to put the MVNO on the physical SIM. I have not heard of any MVNOs doing eSIM yet.

    I believe the project involves live streaming out from a site. That means that the upload speed becomes more important than download.

    I have Visible. Their data speed is extremely variable from...

    The motors are used to point the panel to the basic plane of the satellite signal. The phased array antenna panel tracks the satellite signal electronically without moving.

    I assume these things...

    It's a non problem except for the lack of HD on some calls.

    As of now HD already does work between some carriers. I don't recall all of the the details of who works with whom. IIRC, Verizon...

    I have had both cable and FIOS available to choose from for about ten years. They both perform and cost about the same. Two is not enough to spur competition.

    JD Power works by companies commissioning surveys and paying for them. The company designs the survey to produce the results they want. You are right to be suspicious of JD Power surveys. That said,...

    I did not intend to say that Starlink alone would be be a pipe dream for most Americans. I missed the "most Americans" part of what I was replying to. My feelings were not hurt that you pointed out...

    Haha, yeah. I don't like that my RAV4 does not have a glove compartment light. My previous two Ford Explorers did, but they were total junk.

    I must be a slow learner. After the first one was junk,...

    Your info shows you are on band 5 with 5 MHz bandwidth. 5 MHz bandwidth can get congested easily in populated areas.

    Does the Mofi4500 have the ability to select bands? You might be able to get...

    Ok, interesting. It can still be a part of increasing broadband availability, especially to places where they will never roll cable or build enough terrestrial wireless. People in high population...
