Information about S4GRU Sponsorship levels and how to become a Sponsor

Recommended Posts

How long do you become a sponsor for a donation? What I mean is, does it only last a month? And how much is required to become a sponsor to get access to the maps.

 

Thanks

Regular sponsorship is good for six months from the most recent donation. Premier sponsorship is indefinite.

 

Regular sponsorship has no minimum. However we need to average 20-25 to make our monthly projections, but I understand not everyone can afford that.

Thanks for the response. Is that a desire for 20-25 per member or the amount total you need from all sponsors? Sorry if this is a dumb question haha. I just don't want to look bad for making a small donation to view the sponsor info

You shouldn't worry about it. If you can afford $25, then that's great. If you can afford more, it allows us to do more. Like host and create more maps, etc. If you can only afford $10, then it helps. Let your wallet be your guide.

Just a little different than Jiminy Crickets advice...

It is to bad Sprint doesn't support you. This would show all of us that they really mean it this time. :)

 

I'm glad Sprint doesn't support this site. If they supported financially then they would feel entitled to edit/influence/censor content.

I have only been here a month but I felt I had to contribute to the cause, so I made a little $30 donation. More to come later.

I will go donate now. Also would like to offer my IT/ISP experience to help keep the server(s) running at no charge if you'd like.

Well they could support it in the sense of providing inside technical information and inside info, they know that S4GRU is impartial and a good forum for unbiased information.

I am part of those who donated $1 dollar -_- , I am sorry I couldn't donate more. I am a college student and can't afford much, my Sprint bill is already killing me, I know 5+ bucks won't kill anyone but that is my metro card money! I don't need to be upgraded to sponsor as I did it for kindness. Love the site and I hope the best.

 

^^^^^^^ Hey Robert, What would you think of adding a gift donation option? (sponsorship?) one of us senior(let me turn on my hearing aid) members could give the gift of sponsorship, because that would be awesome. #PayItForward

I have received gift donations via PayPal in the past for others. I had one person even pay for someone to upgrade to the Premier level. All you need to do is write in the Comments section of the PayPal donation that you are Sponsoring someone else and their screen name.

Robert, if this is done, would you be willing to keep the name of the Sponsor anonymous? Some folks like to do good deeds without making it public knowledge.

Absolutely. I always keep them anonymous, unless asked. Which no one has.

If you wish to sponsor another member, we greatly appreciate your generosity, and you can do so anonymously. The only way that anyone will know is that your avatar will temporarily change to an image of Sally Struthers (the South Park version).

Hey Robert. Do we have an current estimate of the number of members now part of the community?

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
