Well, my wife and I were finally able to get a house on acreage and we close tomorrow! We can’t wait until we are in the"country", but have found one downside. Broadband internet isn’t available from neither the telephone company or the cable company. We have looked at the few options available to us and think we are going to go with the T-Mobile 4G Hotspot. We looked at Hughes satellite, but it’s expensive, relatively slow and only allows for 250mb a month in usage.
Has anyone here had any experience with the T-Mobile product? It appears to be fast, reasonably priced ($40 for 5gig) and no limit on usage. You get 5 gig at 4G and if you go over they throttle you to 2G speeds. Plus it can be used with up to 5 devices at a time. So, anyone happy with it?
Also, they showed us two devices, one for $40 and one for $129. While they are both 4G, the sales person claimed the more expensive one is much faster, but couldn’t tell us why. Which one should we get?
Second question: currently we ditched cable and only have Netflix for our TV. We have been very happy with it, but it looks as though we are going to have to ditch streaming if we go with the above service. Not because of speed, but because of data usage. How much data does a typical Netflix movie consume?
