The FMCA plan is great, if you only need 25GB of data per month.

Internet data at $2 per GB (per month) is really cheap.

The plan works great for me.

It just needs to be reported correctly. It is NOT an unlimited plan by any stretch of the imagination. It's a 25Gb plan and it should be sold that way. Compare that to my T-Mobile truly unlimited plan and this one pales in comparison.


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?

Again, as long as you only need 25G or less. My average monthly usage is closer to 90Gb so 25Gb is just an appetizer. I full time and have no other internet options so YMMV!

The FMCA plan costs more than $50 per month. You have to join FMCA which averages $5 per month, plus you have to buy a motorhome! OK, maybe you don't HAVE to buy a motorhome. Will they let "trailer draggers" join the FMCA?

FMCA is now open to all RVs. This change went into effect a few months ago.

If i need more than 25GB per month, my $20 per month Mobley handles the rest.

I snagged a Mobley as well but since that plan is no longer available it's not much help to someone looking for service today.

That's correct. You must join FMCA for 2 years and there is also a 2 year contract with the Verizon/FMCA plan. Yes, FMCA is open to everyone. That's when I dropped my FMCA membership. I don't need to belong to 2 Good Sam's.

I have the verizon unlimited which comes with 10gb of hotspot usage. I generally and just tether the phone to the laptop. From the laptop I can do hdmi to the tv if I want too.

We only have a membership for only one reason, the 'emergency medical evacuation program' which is part of the membership. The data plan is just a perk.
