We’ve had Verizon for years. 2 iPhones and we are full time rv’ers so we use lots of data. I know Verizon is more expensive than some others. Just wondered which providers are good. We have unlimited data and use hotspot too. Watching T-Mobile ads I’m wondering if we should explore changing

We had T-Mobile . . . Just switched off them. Calls never went through half the time. Text messages to family never went through. Had to try like 5 or 6 times to get one to go through. This was in Massachusetts with 2 bars on display.

Just switched to T-Mobile 55+ plan. So far no real issues. For $90 a month we have two phones/lines and 40g data, but really unlimited as after 40 get throttled so they say.

Two answers one is more serious
1 Verizon used to claim the best network. However today the T-Mobile and AT&T coverage maps are downright close to the same as Verizions. Still there are a few spots on the map that only one company covers.

That's the 2nd answer: If you live in one of those places... You have no choice.

Now: Personally. I've something against Verizion or one of it's parts

I use and am very happy with T-mobile 55+ plan
