Sprint is the most reliable ISP I've ever had.

After sitting through a power outage streaming videos and plowing through megabytes of data, I came to a realization. Sprint has never really failed me.

 

I've had to restart my phone a couple times a year to re-establish connections but anyone that's used Comcast is used to that. I had it go down for about 2 hours last year and then come back with much better performance. This is since 2009 Christmas time when I got my Instinct. I just thought I'd say that among all speed complaints and LTE expansion impatience, Sprint has never really let me down like Comcast and to a much smaller degree ATT Uverse. The only one that comes close is when I had Insight BB cable.

 

I'm a brand loyalist. I only buy Asus computer parts, Logitech peripherals, HTC Smartphones, and Corsair power supplies. Sprint for my phone. Just thought I'd share that thought.

Tell me about it. I can without a second thought tell you that there is a 60% chance my Internet will be down at around 2am till 6am. Happens 2 to 3 time a weeks it seems. Then through the day Ill get random losses. (this is all do to them and not me or equipment)

 

Charter Cable. My only other service it Uverse. They are not even worth a thought and hope to see them fail at business one day. I wish I had Verizon. Now that's a service worth paying for. Unless we're talking Cellphones, then I'm a Sprint boy for now. :)

 

Had Comcast in Denver and totally understand. They also monitor everything you do on the internet and will report asap if your caught doing something bad.

As a card carrying FiOS user, I agree 110%. I have yet to power cycle my modem, works great.

I completely swore off Logitech after the Logitech Revue software fiasco. (yes I dumped my money down the toilet on that pile)

 

Oh yeah. That... thing. One of those products that was a fantastic idea that just didn't work out. Logitech should just stick to mice and keyboards... and speakers.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
