    Visible vs Straight Talk (Verizon)

    Does anyone have experience moving from Straight Talk Verizon service to Visible?

    I am hoping to pick up some data usage by switching.

    I am in Hot Springs Village AR, and Straight talk (Verizon) service is good for phone, poor for data. The Verizon tower is 2 miles north of my home and usually, data is unusable. In Hot Springs, 20 miles away, data download is also slow, 1-3 mbps, but upload is typically several times faster.

    Thanks in advance!

    In my tests with TotalWireless (also a Tracfone MVNO on Verizon network) versus my friends' phones on Verizon plans, there was no speed difference.
    I might be de-prioritized when there is a congestion, but that happens almost never here, so I can't speak of it.
    Also, you didn't say what phone you have, that makes a difference sometimes.

    Thanks for the reminder on the phone. It's a Motorola G7 Power unlocked.

    Good comments, thanks.

    Surprisingly speed difference between Verizon and visible where I’m at is marginal. I’m very happy with the service. $25 for unlimited on Verizon, won’t find elsewhere.
