Hey friends,

Just wanted to make sure my chaser friends have heard about Visable wireless.

$40 a Month. They use Verizon Towers, and actually are owned by Verizon.

The Catch? Speeds are capped at 5 mbps, plenty still for chasing.

Will be testing it out this year to see how it performs!
 
If I had to guess, Verizon prepaid and postpaid customers will have priority during times of congestion (such as chaser convergences). Also, something to keep in mind is that Verizon has no towers in much of northwest Oklahoma and a nice chunk of western Illinois. In NW OK, Verizon customers are allowed to roam (I'm assuming on US Cellular towers), but in W IL, they are not. Much of central Kentucky is in the same boat as NW OK. If I had to guess, I would be very surprised if Verizon allowed this MVNO to roam on other towers, and as such would be limited to Verizon towers only.

I get the idea of trying to save a buck or two, but you can pay a few dollars more a month and have full speeds within the same limitations with the branded Verizon prepaid. If you use GRL3 or any kind of mapping software, that data cap will limit you. Ultimately, I've found that you get what you pay for when it comes to cellular service, and it's one of the areas where I am willing to spend the money to have the best service. I'm usually one to not spend extra money if I don't have to, but as an over the road truck driver AND as a chaser, I absolutely spend the money in this area.

Black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow, black and yellow.

Sprint unlimited is cheap. And Mobile Threat Net for the massive chunk of area that Sprint won't work.

Of course, I agree with Drew's assessment of things. Verizon isn't going to let an MVNO have full operational privileges, especially at their price point.
