    A lead is only of value if you can deliver.

    I use a 4G LTE Vz hotspot. It appears that it has not worked more this month than it has worked.

     

    All those Vz adds of a couple of years ago certainly don't apply to the current network.

    Wireless is still a work in progress. We can expect erratic service until the technology catches up with the promises made to consumers. Driven by competition, the wireless companies are selling something which is not ready for primetime.

    Verizon's DSL service is subject to breakdowns very frequently . Is there anything Verizon does right? I switched to Hughes Satellite. It might not be technically as good as DSL or FIOS but it is fairly reliable. Essentially, there is no real high speed internet or reliable cellular service in my town. Ever since the Television transmissions were switched to digital the signal gets blown away by the slightest breeze or snow storm. I don't think modern technology is really that good.
