Hi Guys,

A few years ago I found some info on Millenicom on this forum and another forum. Millenicom offered a pretty good data plan with Verizon at a great deal. Over time they went up in price and finally Verizon cut them off and offered deals to their customers at a hefty price. This was good for me as a storm chaser but was still expensive.

Well last year Huntsville City Schools in Huntsville, AL started a big digital transition. They have got rid of textbooks and replaced them with laptops. All kids have a laptop now and they encountered another problem. Kids with no internet at home. So they partnered with Verizon and started a great deal where parents get a Verizon MiFi router at a good price.

Well earlier in August they opened their program to the general public. There is no geographic restriction for use or purchase. The MiFi router is included and the best news is it is UNLIMITED 4g LTE data over Verizon for only $47.75 a month.

I've used it all over the US including Chicago and Nashville within the last few weeks and I have had no issues with it at home.

If you are interested head to http://hsvwifi.com

Thanks again for all the great info in the past - hope you guys enjoy this service.

Wes

He mentions getting advice on this forum several years ago and he just joined today [emoticon]

I did go to the site - Omni Lynx - and it sounds legit but it also states:

The OmniLynx™ Program offers access to an unlimited data plan that is not otherwise accessible by non-government users. Due to the potential for increased burden on network infrastructure during peak hours of utilization, the service provider reserves the full right to reduce data transfer speeds (commonly referred to as "throttling") as necessary.


So it is unlimited but subject to throttling.

The link appears to be legit. Google Huntsville Alabama schools.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Lighten up guys. You can read posts and get advice without joining but you must join to post. I went and looked and it appears to be legit (also found nes articles about it)but it does include the following statement:

"The OmniLynx™ Program offers access to an unlimited data plan that is not otherwise accessible by non-government users. Due to the potential for increased burden on network infrastructure during peak hours of utilization, the service provider reserves the full right to reduce data transfer speeds (commonly referred to as "throttling") as necessary."
I'm seriously considering changing to it and lowering my current data plan with Verizon.

unlocked..

behave..

good offers dont come around very often

i could find nothing that indicates scam
the school web site is real and so is the news paper article on the original roll out plan for the school kids

Now how long Omni Lynx, Verizon and the school system can all stay partners and keep this low price, is anybodies guess, my crystal ball broke a long time ago

play nice ..no Flaming

If you want to use a referral code from someone you know you can use mine, 1822. The WiFi model being shipped is the 6620L and I am hoping mine shows up quickly!

But, is there a catch? You decide? Verizon changes the request headers for all sites and adds an X-UIDH on all mobile and hotspot devices for their network.

By the way - we followed up with OmniLynx and posted this article on RVMobileInternet.com earlier today:

Make sure you understand the risks of this plan and how quickly it could go away, especially after getting so much exposure in the RVing community.
