Except for cellular that comes from satellites isn't worth diddly. The DISH techies, and even my DISH Inside Guy say that.

I can't see how we can possibly have a direct shot from any tower here, but we don't have any cell problems with AT&T. DW has three bars.

& it always does seem to mean something that we've been customer for more than 20 years. When the negotiating gets tough, I like saying to them, "How many customers have you had for 20 years?"

Before switching I have to be fairly certain we get service from a tower not blocked by a hill here, and a nearby tower in Florida.
I was holding off posting this but before you go "all-in" on any "deal" from Sprint I would suggest you go on their website and check the Sprint coverage map....'cause it ain't great and doesn't include a lot of our immediate Tri-Lakes area...our home included..!

Yeah, I got a "free tablet" offer too 2 & 1/2 years ago when I upgraded with the liars at AT&T in response to an email I got from them promising $650 in bill credits that never happened. Only when I finally filed a valid complaint with the BBB (the highest number of complaints BBB gets is from Cell phone issues ) did I get any action and had to follow that up with a further complaint on the AT&T Social Media site. The "HOOK" with their "free tablet" was that you had to activate and maintain a separate phone line unique to the "free tablet" for 24 Months for another $20/mo. Another reason among several other issues with AT&T we are "looking around".

Yeah, I noticed on our bill after DW got the free tablet that we had another phone line, and it is based in Sarasota. Huh? She uses it more than her phone. and she uses both a lot
