RE: Best Internet

There is no best, just what's best for you. How do you watch your movies? Netflix, Crackle and others are on the Binge on list for T-Mobile and don't count against you data. I've never used the 5 gigs of data I have on a T-Mobile hotspot and I stream daily. I have Cricket and 4GHS has started selling a Cricket like unlimited hotspot service with the cost varying depending on the speed you need. It runs on the native AT&T network, no roaming. Cricket itself has unlimited for $65 but there is no hotspot just like it's parent AT&T's unlimited plan. As a business there are Sprint options for unlimited for under $50. Like with any carrier you have to make sure you have the coverage and Sprints is suppose to be the most limited. Have good coverage and it is fast and getting faster. Unfortunately that's usually somewhere near a large city. Verizon is king of coverage and it proved itself when my Verizon hotspot stayed connected in the mountains while the other came and went. Unlimited Verizon high speed cost the bucks. I have bits of data on each network because of where we camp. I'm just hoping for a signal for email, forums, and weather. Rather than depend getting a signal strong enough to stream, we use a tailgater portable satellite. It gets a great signal even at 10,000 ft, the picture is always HD and it never ever buffers.

Public service announcement

Risking being banned for discussing he who shall not be named, I need to tell those that have 3G hotspots that they need to call the number on the paper and see what the cut off date is. I have received reports of more than a handful of hotspots going down including two of my own. One of mine the call center didn't recognize at all. The one I leave at the MIL's in case she wants to use it but never does has been suspended since June after I paid for May and sent the 6 month payment to he who shall not be named. Luckily I was able to make a payment and get it going again. So please check your hotspots cut off date. In some cases it's been up to 10 days before the letter said.

RE: Millenicom Is Back - Finally!

T-Mobile is #2 for coverage if you have a band 12 device. The problem with band 12 is the area it covers. Yes it's great for T-Mobile to be able to say that they have that much area covered with a single tower but what they don't tell you is that you are competing with everyone else in that area. That's fine out in the cornfields or up in the mountains where population is sparse but in a major city it means overloaded back hauls at peak times. I just don't use my TMO during rush hour.

RE: Millenicom Is Back - Finally!

I have a Z915 on T-Mobile, not unlimited though, just 5 gigs and Binge on. It's a pretty decent hotspot, good battery life, easy to change settings. TMO coverage can get congested here, was absent for one trip in the hills and wonderful in the cornfields of Michigan.

RE: Megawatt Dissection & Notes

Mex You make me think that even had I sent it in under warranty that it would have just fried again without mods. As for the rest, I'll get right on it and let you know in about three years after I read up on everything you have posted so far. Can you post a link to the data sheets you need?

RE: Testing Cellular amplifiers

Network cell info lite has a map that shows you the tower you are connected too.

RE: New lightweight Solar Panels - American Supplier?

You could create something like that using 50w flexible panels at $82 each with shipping 50w felxible 100w flexible panels are larger but can be a better watt to $ ratio. 100w flexible with charge controller Three of these would be a lot cheaper folding solar mat

RE: I'm Good I'm Bad...

Mex Good to hear from ya. I'm glad the Megawatt finally got to where it was suppose to be. I hope the rest of the junk doesn't clutter up the place but look in the phone card holder if you see some headphone along the way.

RE: Windows 10 Anniversary Update

The other half reminded me that there are 3 more machines to be updated including the MIL's, so I will have to go the hard drive route. on edit argggg half of the machines are 32 bit, the other half 64 bit. Now I have two updates to download. I can't use the Verizon 3G, it would take a hour at peak speed. I might be able to stick a micro SD card in the unlimited Cricket phone, that would take under 10 minutes. Near me is a hot Sprint tower that pulls down around 30 Mbps, I could pick up the update while going through a drive through. I also have any number of stores, restaurants and a library that I can pick up WiFi but is it safe to use public WiFi for it?
