Internet and cell phone for full-time RV-ers
« on: January 28, 2017, 10:47:01 PM »
DW and I will be moving into the RV and taking off in the next few months.  We currently have Republic Wireless, but DW's phone just died, and we will need something else for internet soon.  Any suggestions?  So far it looks like Verizon is the most popular choice for cell phones and internet for full-timers.  Just nervous about starting a new contract.

I don't think Verizon does contracts anymore. They just break the price of your cell phone into monthly chunks on your plan - if you bring your own phone or pay for it outright, there shouldn't be a contract, last time I checked.

I'd either buy into an old Verizon plan or go with T-Mobile one

I literally just covered this topic a little over a month ago.

Have a 5500 word guide on RV connectivity, exploring a lot of nooks and crannies of the subject (and thank Paddedhat for prodding me to write it in the first place):
