Omni link must be busy. We were customer 1822 and Chris and Cherie are 1837 in a very short period of time. I guess there is a serious risk of being an early adopter but there can also be huge rewards.


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?

thanks for the info link
sometimes it pays to look the gift horse in the mouth
the offer is on the level,
the catch is the data tracking

1492 posted about this earlier, anyone with any current thoughts on this? The website in his post was from 7 months, any info if they are still doing this?


Just a note to those who might want this service, Verizon changes the request headers for all sites and adds an X-UIDH on all mobile and hotspot devices for their network.
What does this mean? They are altering every website request being made, in the request header, and the X-UIDH is a uniquely identifying way to track users. This tracking removes any amount of anonymity that a user can have. With this info, it is possible that others can make tracking software that maps EVERYTHING you do via HTTP.
There is already a company doing this now, Turn. They basically look for webpage request with the X-UIDH tracking header and then send targeted ads after the advertiser wins an auction to do so.
When a user visits a website that contains Turn tracking code, the company holds an auction within milliseconds for advertisers to target that user. The highest bidder's ad instantly appears on the user's screen as the web page loads. Turn says it receives 2 million requests for online advertising placements per second.

This is great news! I'm going in.
I just upgraded my current plan to 20gb due to running low on data gas with a week to go to month end. Now I can set this up as a backup if they do pull the plug.

Something else to consider? Realistically, Verizon is not going to allow unlimited 4G LTE mobile data usage on their network. No mobile provider will. So the question comes down to how much 4G LTE data will one actually get per month? Those who do opt for this plan, keep track and let us know?

you do realize, there is nothing in the websites or info about, pay as you go, you can put in the closet, but you still gotta pay for it every month

you can log in and pay monthly, or you can set up auto subscription payment

but if you an't paying you gotta send it back

I went to the website and I don't see anything that specifically says it's Verizon coverage. I see references to the "nation’s largest 4G LTE network," but they all claim that in one way or another. Has anyone actually confirmed that it is Verizon coverage? Thanks.

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.

- Chris & Cherie / RVMobileinternet & Technomadia


Very much agreed. However, with no equipment fee or setup charge I believe the exposure is minimal to someone who purchases it.
