Welcome! I see this is your first post here.Does anyone know the best bang for the buck?
Thank youVisible is a great deal, but be aware they're limited to using one device at a time on a phone hotspot. You can't legally use a dedicated data hotspot like a Jetpack. And you'll be the first to slow down if you're in a congested area where lots of other people are crowding onto a tower.
Visible now offers unlimited 5G data in limited areas with up to 200 MB speeds for the same low price. But it's subject to the same limitations, you have to buy a 5G phone from them and only use one device at a time on the phone's hotspot.
I was planning on using it on my phone but using my MiFi 8800 would be much better.Here is what Visible shows on my account - I got the SIM and activated it on an iPhone and placed in the Jetpack. Covered this setup with a Visible chat agent.

It's been over a year and they have not cut me off. I routinely get 15 - 20 Mb/s downloads and use a portable router for all the devices in my motorhome. Wife does on line meetings as we roll, at time. Very few problems.
I thought that was the case as well but I was helping a friend get started with Visible recently and she was told on a number of forums that more than one could use her Visible phone's hotspot. Wonder if she got some bad info or if they're changed their policy?Visible is a great deal, but be aware you're limited to using one device at a time on a phone hotspot.
Netflix? I can use it in motion, and I was watching TV with it in the Everglades and other places on my "FireTV" in this RV. On this trip I changed my plan to the unlimited with Verizon and I am glad I did. I even updated the maps on my RV GPS with it the other night. I now use it just as I would use the cable internet at home, but it now costs me twice as much as it did when I started this trip a few months ago. I think I am now paying Verizon $110.00 per month for just my Hotspot and I find it to be worth every penny.Thanks Don can you use it when you are rolling and if I use it to watch netflix and such will the cost burn me
Visible says their hotspot data is limited to 5 mbps and the phone hotspot is programmed to only connect to one device at a time. Some people are making that one device a router which in turn distributes the data to multiple devices. Others are activating their Visible SIMs in a qualifying phone, then transplanting the SIM into a non-qualifying device like a Jetpack that supports multiple devices. IMO both practices are similar to those who decide to live in the national forests, subjecting the areas to overuse and changing what is supposed to be short term recreational access into a long term rent free lifestyle. They may profit for a while by bending the rules but eventually access is tightened to control the abuse at the expense of everyone else.I thought that was the case as well but I was helping a friend get started with Visible recently and she was told on a number of forums that more than one could use her Visible phone's hotspot.
