RE: Any "Real" Unlimited Plans?

I have two AT&T Mobley plans and they are not subject to "throttling", just network management. . . there's a HUGE difference.For the pedantic among us, yes deprioritization , not throttling. Both however result in slower data speeds which I would expect are PITA for those who choose to stream. Dave The big difference between throttling and network management is that throttling lasts from when you hit the 22GB usage until the end of your billing cycle. Network management only slows down when the towers are super busy and then resumes normal speed when they are not. Network management can last a few minutes, hours, or days depending on your location and tower traffic during a specific time of day.

RE: Latest Dish News Blackout ???

Locast is a neat service. Too bad it's only available in limited areas. We live in an area where no OTA TV is available even with use of antennas. I'd gladly pay for this service if it was available in my location in TN.

RE: Lost two local TV channels, options?

Is there a way to watch an "out of town" game when the local team is playing at the same time on a given network? i.e. My DH would like to watch the Packers (Green Bay) games. We winter near Tampa, so when a network is carrying a game on xxx day at xxx o'clock, all that is shown is the Tampa game. We have most of the streaming network apps, but they know your location and still only present the local teams. Thanks

RE: Lost two local TV channels, options?

OK guys I need some quick advice. We lost our local ABC and CBS stations due to a fight between Dish and somebody. I have figured out a way to get cbs, but cannot get abc. Saturday is the Clemson/Norte Dame game. Naturally it is on abc. We have fiber optic internet and dish. Dish offers no help anything I can do with the fiber optic or something else? I don’t really want to sign up for a whole new service for one game, but would consider a one month trial. I also have an Amazon fire stick which might have internet and we have one internet capable tv. Ideas pls. Free Trial: Free Trial

RE: WiFi booster

What you're actually looking for is a router/repeater that is capable of what is called WiFi as WAN which means that it can receive WiFi from a source, such as the RV park, and rebroadcast it inside your RV. Regular home routers don't usually have this function because you're unlikely to "drive" your house to where there's a WiFi to connect to! There are a number of companies that offer routers with WiFi as WAN capability. You can read about this topic on the Mobile Internet Resource Center website. MIRC is run by good people who aren't affiliated with a specific manufacturer so you get good unbiased information. Some portion of the site is free; some requires a subscription. MIRC Joel (AKA docj) Excellent advice to use MIRC for information! Eric and Tami Johnson of Techno RV sell some decent units and they give service and support with their sales! I highly recommend them.

RE: Latest Dish News Blackout ???

While watching CBS yesterday, a message scrolled across the screen that after some date coming up soon (I don't remember the exact date) Direct TV might not be able to provide CBS anymore.

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Those restrictions are in EVERY unlimited plan no matter the cost. There is no truly UNLIMITED plan in existence, none, not even at $250 per month. By the way, Visible did away with the 5mbs cap several years ago. Actually, there are a few people with grandfathered Verizon unlimited plans (no throttling or network management) that are still active. Verizon has been shutting them down for the last few years . . . but there's still a handful of us that still have them.

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

It is in my phone - Galaxy S8+. I use it as a hotspot when we are camping all the time. Barney Nice plan for limited access. I believe only one device at a time can use the hotspot feature?

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

Snip... If AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon wanted to provide truly unlimited data with no caps, no throttling, no anything, at a reasonable price, they would do it themselves. They don't need resellers to sell their product. They already have! Check out Visible by Verizon. I have been on their network for the past year and have had no place that was not covered. Unlimited minutes, texts, and data with no speed cap ever. $40/month all in. No extra charges at all. Barney Do you have the SIM in a phone or a physical hot spot?

RE: OTR Mobile - GRRRR

OTR Mobile, like other MVNOs, has been at the mercy of the main providers' (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile) changing policies. The big 3 have discontinued or downgraded many of their own really good plans over the past couple years. Sometimes they grandfather existing plans . . . but not always. Try getting an unlimited Mobley Plan or adding an unlimited hotspot to AT&T's "Unlimited Plus" for $20. Verizon dropped their pre-paid unlimited hotspot plan a while back too.

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

Have you tried putting your phone in "Airplane" mode for a few minutes? This causes renegotiation with the towers and sometimes produces good results.

RE: DTV stopping DNS

Can someone explain to me how to get local network programming with Directv? I currently have Distant Network Programming. That is being cancelled on 6/1. I called and the rep told me the only way to get network programming is to stream it. I find that very hard to believe. Help please ! Here's an article on it:Local Programming going away?
