I just started using the service and so far so good...

I would like to hear from others about how they are finding the service to work?
What equipment are you using in your RV with the Visible?
What kind of coverage are you getting?
What devices are you running with Visible?
How are you finding the Visible to work with Streaming?
Any other details you would like to pass on?

Only looking for feedback from current users please. Chuck

Since your service from Visible is acceptable, I’d keep them in the loop.

We're using our Visible data service with our main TV, Dish Hopper w/Sling, two FireTVsticks, two laptops, two cell phones, and two tablets. Our Visible SIM is in a Novatel Verizon 7730L Jetpack that supports fifteen connected devices and is connected to one of two MIMO antenna sets. So far in our travels up and down the east coast and currently in Florida, we haven't found any place where we didn't have at least some service. Sometimes it's been marginal for streaming in the weaker signal areas not surprisingly. We do have an alternate service for those times though. Connecting to our directional MIMO antenna pair and peaking the signal helps quite a bit. We've used over 150 GB a month on a number of occasions with no complaints from Visible.

We've been in a Visible "Party Pay" party almost since they introduced the feature, and have never paid more than $25/mo. since joining. Early on we lost a couple of party members, but they were quickly replaced within hours. I can't speak to the Visible customer service since I've never needed it. All in all we've been very pleased with our Visible service and have no intentions of dropping it any time soon.

Dutch, How long have you been using the SIM in a hotspot? Chuck

I've only had Visible on an iPhone for a few months, but so far have no complaints. Haven't used much mobile data as it acts as a backup to my primary AT&T mobile router for remote work.

I've read Visible has been cancelling accounts that use the SIM in a different data device such as mobile routers. Maybe the loophole is to use it in a Verizon branded hotspot device?

When I put the IMEI number on the Visable site for my 7730L it said it was not compatable - so how is Dutch using it ??

You need to set up the Visible service on a compatible phone using the Visible app. If you choose to move it after that you can. But that is in violation of the terms and conditions and some have had the account canceled after doing this. Others are using a travel router to get around the speed limit and one device limit.

Good thought. I know there are some that have been using a mifi with the Visible sim for some time now with no issues. Chuck

We have been using the Visible service for a month now alongside a Verizon Mifi with a real unlimited plan that the wife uses for working at home, provided by her employer. The Visible actually has a higher speed than the Verizon service when run through the Ookla speed test. It remains consistently higher no matter what time of the day we run it or what day. Our AT&T plan is all but useless here at or homebase. Chuck
