Verizon, AT&T, Dash or T-Mobile: Which is Ideal for RVers?

29 Jul Verizon, AT&T, Dash or T-Mobile: Which is Ideal for RVers?



Though there may well be an apparent “best” community for a specified community, us regular vacationers have a tougher selection to make. There simply is no solitary very best community almost everywhere nationwide. All of the significant four have their strengths and weaknesses in different areas throughout the nation, and from time to time regional and local carriers conquer out the countrywide carriers in a particular spot.

As a regular traveler, you need to look at what carrier – or mix of carriers – will give you coverage in the areas you want to roam. This short article is an overview of the strengths and weaknesses of the four major carriers in the US as they relate to mobile world wide web for a RVing way of life – Verizon, AT&T, Dash & T-Mobile.

The accompany short article that goes together with this video is at:

    Have you guys ever used the unlimited internet data service from unlimittedville dot com? Do you recommend it?

    Is Verizon LTE the same as 4G? My Iphone says LTE and and friend of the family has Verizon 4G but has an android cell phone. Thanks

    I had At&t as my cell phone carrier. I switched over to Cricket, which At&t bought Cricket. I pay $65 a month for unlimited calls, text and wifi and best part…Cricket uses At&t towers.

    I recently got T-Mobile and I have to say it is great. AND… the people are NICE. Time-Warner is running a promo right now saying people are returning to Time-Warner and how they've made changes. But for me it's too late. I experienced exactly why people bailed on them with the abhorrent customer service levels.. just rotten to the core. I had Verizon before TW and the customer service are often just regular people working off their own phones and they will pass you off to other places and numbers that don't work or disconnect. And when you get to another person you have to repeat your same issue for the 10th time. WHat started as a routine business call ends in fury an hour later with Verizon.

    But T-MOBILE has great perks. I sound like a shill but I'm not. Purely based on how NICE they are and speaking to me like a regular person when answering questions is just the best. One CS said she had to connect me elsewhere and had me hold a moment. When I came back on with the other rep a minute later, the new rep was filled in and the departing rep was still there to say a happy goodbye. A breath of fresh air.

    DISCLAIMER: I'm not an over the road camper. So I get great LTE coverage everywhere I go in my region. And I signed up for the highest current data plan for 18Gig for $80. But I think I over-bought because I didn't realize they had a free streaming perk. I'm up to 16Gig true use right now, but T-Mobile so far has only charged me for 5.12 Gig because so much of what i do is stream–and there are only 8 days left this month to use all that high speed data before it's thrown into roll-over called "stash". But as I have "plans" (bwahaha!) I think I'll keep this rate level. I can't begin to tell you how happy and free at last I feel. :P

    as a commercial driver I am very similar to an RV'er. I have Verizon. I absolutely hate it. I have that old grandfathered unlimited data plan but I'm thinking of dumping it simply because Verizon's customer service and customer engagement is absolutely terrible!

    How do you find someone willing to let you take over their Verizon unlimited plan? Thanks for the info!

    Great video! AdventureVanMan sent me here. I had watched some of your stuff before but doing some research on internet services. Since we are currently not traveling a lot, we have a Karma hotspot since we live in a heavy Sprint area. I am researching to decide what to do with getting a better primary carrier in the next few years. Thank you for all of the great info.

  • Nicholas Edwards

    I like my $50 unlimited T-Mobile phone, $50 unlimited sprint, and I have the prepaid 10 gig/2 month Verizon hotspot just hope one day they offer a 30 or 40 gig plan for around $150 /2 month I would be very comfy traveling that way.

    I used magicjack which works great if you have wifi. And then, of course, it is better for uploading content. And I use a roku box of my wireless router to watch netflix, hulu plus and amazon prime. My cell phone is one the AT&T backbone. I get it through Tracfone at $20 every 3 months. I am not as reliant on high tech as I once was thank goodness. I need a phone to take and place calls, that's it.

    i disagreed with the sprint speeds. people are seeing speed of 50+. they have rolled out 2 band 41 carriers with a 3rd one in 2016. sprint is faster than at&t.

    AT&T is the best you guys explain it very well good job

    T Mobile is total crap. Bought their service, and they treated me horribly. Cancelled, and they refused to give me a refund, even though it wouldn't work at my house. Was really bad, and it cost more than the ATT plan I was on, and I got more data with ATT!

  • Kevin Burgess
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    Great video and analysis. I travel for IT contracts all over the country and have been happy in T-Mobile, with long distance, text and data loads I've rarely exceeded. However, I'm interested in transitioning to using an RV for contracting so this subject matter is at the center of my concerns. Thanks for sharing.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plans No Longer Transferrable via AOL effective November 13
    Posted: November 8, 2014 / By: Cherie Ve Ard/ In: News Alerts/ Comments: 8
    We have received reliable confirmation that Verizon representatives have been officially notified that effective November 13, Verizon is changing their Assumption of Liability (AOL) policy. Previously, whoever was assuming liability of an unlimited data plan would be able to keep the unlimited plan plan on an older style Nationwide plan.
    With the upcoming change, all customers doing an AOL will be required to switch the line to a current data pricing plan – which currently would be a More Everything plan that does not include unlimited data.
    Many RVers have utilized these grandfathered in unlimited data plans as a source of bandwidth on the nation's most widespread network, and there was quite a market for purchasing grandfathered in plans to assume liability on.

    Do the resellers like Straight Talk get depzriotatized by Verizon & ATT?… Also is there a nice dual sim phone that one could have both Verizon(CDMA) & ATT(GSM)?

  • South Dakota Travels
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    I disagree. I am not a full time rv person, but I live on the road full time and spend a lot of time in rural areas. My company issues Verizon phones, I have an AT&T phone…my Verizon phone sits in the glove box most of the time because in hardly ever works in the rural areas.

  • Taylor Crane
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    I feel the T-mobile segment was improperly spoken of with the new 700MHz A block spectrum they obtained from Verizon their coverage is a lot more robust compared to the map shown in the video… What is the source of the mapping?

  • Alarm Tech911

    Tmobile updated their coverage and tethering is unlimited it just reduces speed after the tethering limit is reached

  • Judith Neeley
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    Great to see you again. Thanks for the info. I don't know what you mean by 'tethered'? Honestly, this is all quite confusing to me. I recently got a StraightTalk plan, and I don't know how to work my phone other than take a pic, make a call, send a text. I'm such a doofus! So glad you are back.

  • Prima Donna Going Off Grid
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    Glad you are back! Another really helpful internet video!! Right were I am at picking the back up carrier. I am RF intolerant, but in an RV no landlines/DSL. Between a set up using: "Home Phone Connect" on a site for electrosensitives and the very first internet video you had, I have come up w/ a way to set it all up remotely "wireless to wired". I have someone working on putting together my remote box for the components, panel, battery and theft proof weights. Thanx to you guys I can move to my RV, have phone and net still, and not have heart trouble and mini strokes. Thanks-a-bunch!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Thom Stanton
    Posted at 05:15h, 29 July

    Gathered that you use AT&T for phone with Verizon for data. Both high priced. Have T-Mobile, just not happy with their coverage. Will have to look at their "Binge On" service, and No Borders. So, while getting started with full-time RVing, I'm thinking we stick with our old unlimited T-Mobile plan, with their hotspot device, and adding Verizon or AT&T for a back-up phone. Thoughts?

    As a Project Fi user, so far it has been great, but since I am not on the road yet… it is too early to tell how well it works. Only downside so far is that it is limited to the Nexus phones.
