$150mo budget. Spend it for best coverage diversity...
#1
I am sticks & bricks right now, but by the end of the year will be full-timing in the US, and possibly Canada a bit.

I was able to grab an unlimited (but deprioritized) VZW MiFi/Jetpack plan for $70/month before the plan went away so I have that going for me.  Now I am trying to figure out which carrier I should go with for my android smartphone, to combine with my VZW MiFi/Jetpack for best coverage.  FWIW, I plan on a cellular booster and possibly a Netgear MIMO directional antenna to use in my RAV4 Hybrid.

I could go with:

- GoogleFi.  Combines US Cellular/TMO/Sprint.  Can going INTL (a possibility, though not often) for no extra charge.  Unsure if these three carriers combined is as good as ATT or TMO.

- ATT or TMO.  ATT traditionally has been a good compliment to VZW, and TMO is adding towers quickly to catch up.  They generally has more favorable pricing/plans/features (streaming unlimited YouTube, what?!) than ATT.

-Some other MVNO like Mint or Republic Wireless to stretch my dollar further.  Not well educated here, but I've read MVNOs are deprioritized vs. VZW/ATT/TMO/Sprint customers when battling for bandwidth on a tower.  Maybe?

I have a $150/mo budget for the $70 VZW Mifi/Jetpack and a cell phone plan, or possibly there's enough headroom for a cellphone plan ~and~ another MiFi on third carrier?  How would you spend your dough for the best coverage while traveling?  #addictedtotheinternet

Thanks!

Now what kind of attitude is that?   Wink  

Everyone one has to have an electric leash!  How else can you check the YARC thread while waiting in the grocery store checkout line?  Otherwise you will have to speak to people or read the fake tabloid headlines.
