For several years of moving to my own manufacuture home in 2013, I have been with T-Mobile for years for being the cheapest and the most reliable network where I live. I actually I take that back, it was AT&T at first then, truly unlimited came back even if you were cap at certain gigs, but I wasn’t complaining.
I have used iPhone ( First Gen ) with AT&T, then skipped iPhone 2nd Gen, which allows me to get iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S, and moved to Android for a couple of years until iPhone 6S Plus was introduced. I have missed the iPhone.
As a loyal customer for several years, by the time in 2018, things started to fall apart, slow connection with the suckiest congestion overall. I couldn’t even use my data for the basic of things such as checking my mail or watching Netflix. I just couldn’t do it, but I just complain and complain about two years and no improvements whatsoever even if they told me that they will be adding and modifying existing towers for better performance, but nope. Still a shitting experience.
Even if it was cheapest with autopay and no taxes, I just basically stick with it with issues until I just couldn’t handle it and it was time to switch to another carrier overall.
I have shop AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, Boost Mobile, Google FI and other stuff. Overall, AT&T plans just sucks, no mobile hotspot if you get their lowest plan and forget T-Mobile, and Sprint, their data just sucks.
I have looked into Google FI, even if its the cheapest but since we use a lot of data, we have no choice and say no to Google FI. We basically use a mobile hotspot because our internet here locally doesn’t even exist. No cable nor Fiber Optics so getting those high-end downloads and uploads was just not an option for us.
At the end of everything else, Verizon seems to be a logical choice due to better data and no congestions whatsoever.
