  1. We keep a constantly updated list of the best data plans for a 'home internet replacement' (including unlimited options) here: www.rvmobileinternet.com/planpicks There are several unlimited AT&T vendors out there, most of them without authorized relationships with AT&T. Many of the $60/month range ones are just reselling the unlimited tablet plan that you can get yourself for $34.99.month. AT&T does currently have a legit unlimited data plan specifically for RVers for $360/year - it's only available to Airstream owners, or when using the Togo Roadlink C2 roof top unit. You'll find more info on these options in the link above. The Mobley only resurfaced for a brief bit earlier this year, and we don't anticipate it coming back again. But then again, it was a surprise it came back earlier this year too. - Cherie
  2. Our guide to cellular booster registration: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/guides/booster-registration/ Basically, while it's a requirement - there's been hardly any enforcement of it.
  3. Yes, very exciting to see SpaceX make their claim in this space. We were actually on the press conference with Elon prior to the launch, and shared in our write-up the outlook for mobility in terms of RV use: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/spacex-launches-first-sixty-starlink-satellites-building-a-massive-global-broadband-constellation/
  4. Here's our full guide to understanding the limits on "unlimited" plans: http://www.rvmobileinternet.com/unlimited basics: Network management is temporary and just lowering your priority on a tower as the carrier needs to do manage their traffic. Throttling is a hard cap and a set max speed.
  5. When added to Beyond, Above or the original 'February 2017 New' Unlimited postpaid smartphones planes - Jetpacks are $20/month. And it only includes 15GB of high speed mobile hotspot use, then hard throttled to 600 kbps speeds. This about to be retired prepaid plan does not have such caps, but is always subject to network management.
  6. By the way.. it is now confirmed. This plan IS retiring on May 21, and existing customers will be grandfathered in. Above article has been updated.
  7. We have indications that this plan may soon be retiring - if you're interested in this plan, we recommend getting it activated ASAP just in case: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/verizon-prepaid-65-month-unlimited-jetpack-data-plan-pudp-retiring-soon/
  8. The Connected Car plan sold with the Mobley does not include any international roaming. It's US only. We actually just updated our guide to mobile internet options in Canada for US based nomads: http://www.rvmobileinternet.com/canada
  9. We would be happy to reply there - however, their forums seem to not be allowing us to - whether by design or technical error. All I get is an error message about too many redirects when attempting to do so. I see that Neal is now claiming that because we happen to cover the same equipment that Turbopilot is recommending that we should be crediting him and/or IRV2. We always credit our sources.. and simply put, neither IRV2 or Turbopilot is the original source of our knowledge of these devices, or their pairing. And Turbopilot's experience (as with all our member's sharing) with the devices is shared & searchable in our forums and clearly credited to his name. We've had these router models in testing for years, and have covered them with information we've obtained direct from the manufacturers and based on our own hands on experience with them. The antenna pairing is actually what Airstream is including in their new dealer installed kit, which is how it originally came on our radar - and followed-up with working with the folks at LivinLite.net to obtain further technical specifications, feedback from the manufacturer and evaluation samples. The particular pairing is nothing particularly unique, nor original by Turbopilot or us (we clearly credit Airstream and LivinLite in our coverage where appropriate.) And we attempt to cover ALL options out there - with a focus on selecting what will best meet YOUR needs. - Cherie
  10. Thank you all for the support on this. It was kinda shocking to us to see an accusation of plagiarism in the thread. We do all of our independent research, testing and writing - and if we are referencing someone else's content, we always give credit where credit is due. We actually reached out to the original poster of the thread, who is actually one of our premium members whom we helped in our own forums. Prior to him him joining our site earlier this year, we had no knowledge of him - and prior to today we had not tracked his postings anywhere outside of our own. He told us he had actually posted in the thread with a link and recommendation to us - but it was deleted by a moderator. *shrug* We ourselves long ago quit even attempting to assist on the IRV2 forums because of the extreme moderation. We so appreciate our Escapee's & Xscapers community.
  11. You've received some great advice here... just to confirm some things for you: 1) The 8800L issues are not yet resolved, but we are testing a 2nd beta unit Inseego sent us. Things are looking better, but it's no telling how long it will take Verizon to push the firmware update. That said, many are not having issues, and the 8800L is the flagship device with the most future proofing. 5G for us mobile travelers won't be a consideration for quite a while. For more on the 8800L: http://www.rvmobileinternet.com/8800l 2) The 7730l is still a relevant device however, and many are choosing to obtain one instead. 3) 3G is currently slated to be ended by Verizon at the end of this year. While it might be important now, it won't be for much longer. Here's our guide tracking the technology paths of each carrier, including their 3G shut downs and 5G roll outs: http://rvmobileinternet.com/evolution
  12. AT&T offers two different unlimited prepaid plans... one is regularly $65/month and includes no hotspot. The other is $85/month and includes 10GB a month of highspeed hotspot use. Here's their prepaid plan link: https://www.att.com/prepaid/plans.html They currently have both plans onsite for $20 off per month.
  13. If you really think you only need 5GB of data a month - then look to see what options you have for enabling personal mobile hotspot on your phones. Not sure what Verizon plan you have, but AT&T's prepaid Unlimited plan offers an unlimited plan for $65/month (normally $85/month - but on special right now) that includes 10GB of high speed mobile hotspot. Consumer Cellular would also be on AT&T, and if you ask - they usually will turn hotspot on with their plans. Depending on your Verizon plan, you likely already have some hotspot included. This would be the simplest solution, and give you two carriers. - Cherie
  14. No, the Spark doesn't work like the Mobley in that way. Here's our full recap: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/att-spark-connected-car-obd-ii-device-by-harmon-is-this-a-mobley-replacement/
  15. It is true that the prepaid tablet plans 'just work' in hotspots. And you are correct that it's not within terms of service - sounds like you are going in eyes wide open on that. As far as hotspots... the most current model on the AT&T network is the Netgear Nighthawk (our overview of it). But what is best for you really depends no what your criteria is for 'best'. Here's also our guide to understanding LTE modem spec so you can learn more: LTE Modem Specs. - Cherie
