Phone Service

I'm sure it's on here somewhere but haven't looked and just wanted your opinion on your phone service.
What's are the better ones when on the road both for phone and internet service?

We have ATT right now and seems pretty good but also looking at cost.

We use Verizon cell service along with their MIFI wifi ... Coverage is fantastic... All of our trucks and drivers are on a bowl plan with ATT ( cheaper this way for 50 phones) ... The coverage for the drivers always seems to be bad, they never answer , and say that their phone never rang./? It must be a driver thing..

Our Company Phone Service is AT&T, service is ok in most some areas I travel to but when I am in the Northeast, I always have problems with service and dropped calls.

We also have Verizon & have had it for 8+ years both phone & internet & it has worked very well all across the country. Where my MIL lives in the middle of the piney woods of east Texas it works fine, but 12 miles into the little town there is NO cell service for any of the providers. Both my kids tried T Mobil & both switched asap back to Verizon, they had to walk outside to use T Mobil at their homes, one in Texas & one in Wash. state. IMO, if Sprint were the only cell provider I wouldn't have a cell phone.

We have used AT&T for around 8 or 9 years and have had fairly good service going out west but when we were 90 miles south of Minneapolis there was no service at all. If you didn't have Verizon, you were "****" out of luck! We are probably going to switch to Verizon when we go full time and will also use their wifi on the road. Will be checking both for prices before deciding.

Verizon for as long as there have been cell phones. Verizon MiFi as well.

We also use Verizon, we get decent coverage across the USA. I also have a Mi-Fi unit for Internet. Last year Verizon had a sale on data, so I bumped it up to 30 gab, shared between 4 phones and the Mi-Fi. I had planned on moving the Mi-Fi device to another company for data, but they got bought out by Verizon.

Verizon Phones and MiFi JetPak. Been using them for years with very little problems.

We had Verizon for years, but switched to T-Mobile with unlimited data last year. Just got back from a trip along the I-40 corridor to Tenn. (& south to Alabama) from California. Service was spotty at best. I also carried my work phone which is Verizon, and got reception where T-Mobile did not. We'll be switching back to Verizon when we FT next year. When I did have T-Mobile reception, used it as a hot-spot.
