Source? They still have both of their $79.99 "unlimited" plans listed on their website.

Notice went out sometime this past week.  I am not sure what sort of arrangement they had with sprint.  Seems they got the boot in the past but managed to get back on somehow.  One poster claims it was through a middleman and claiming "educational" usage.

That's all sketchy. Millenicom used the WiMAX network? Or the LTE network?

 

How the hell did this slip through Sprint? Why did they ever get to sell unlimited off the Sprint network? Who was overseeing this? Does that person still work for Sprint, and if so, why is he not fired?

They got to use the LTE network as it went live...dunno about Wimax.  They may have made their own plans as well.  Give out unlimited and hope users didnt use that much but if they did, Millenicom was on the hook for the overages.  Then again, maybe they did have unlimited accounts.

 

Lots of people used this company and racked up a lot of usage.

Since we are on this deal.. Any other companies out there? Looking at a solution I have to put in. No WISPs around that I can find. Only cell signals available are VZW and AT&T. VZW has LTE and AT&T has their non-LTE "4g". DSL stops about a mile up the road. Tempted to go find a neighbor of a neighbor and get DSL installed up the road and throw up some Ubiquiti backhaul and call it a day.

 

Only thing I can see at this point is that VZW home LTE garbage that gets you 10gb.

I have about 30 sites planned for the Baton Rouge market, if you have LOS the 5GHz ubiq bridges are affordable and will push 150/150 all day.

Getting LOS isn't a problem as the 3 houses are up on a hill. It's 5 miles east of Ethel, LA. Just have to find a spot to snag some Internet as these folks are tired of wildblue.

I have one more year left to wait since a billing issue with Comcast made my bill start charging me $35 higher than it was supposed to and apparently the only way to fix it was to renew my contract 6 months early as a new subscriber for an additional 6 months. So one more year and I am ready for a better solution as well.

Unfortunately, parts of Florida are a no go for me.  Grandfathered earth stations restrict deployment within 150 mile radius of Orlando and Miami; luckily St Augustine is in the clear.

Snap snap.... ;)   It's been 15 years or so since I've climbed sites professionally, but look me up if things get to this area.

When, Poor James and his crews when i get the financial backing to cross state lines. 

Sprint NV 3.0?  :D

I've used Millenicom for several years.  I liked that I wasn't locked into a contract unlike with Sprint.

 

Now I am not sure what I am going to do for internet at home.  Millenicom was the only Data MVNO I trusted.  The data cap for sprint data plan through Sprint (12 gig for biggest plan) would be a non starter for home internet use for almost any family, but where I live our choices are either Wireless internet (Evdo/3g/4G) or satellite.

 

Now I am going to have to decide if I want to keep my device on the Sprint network or not, or just go back to using my Novatel WiFi hotspot on the Verizon network. It definitely puts a damper on my enthusiasm for watching the Sprint rollout.

The Beyond Talk plans still look like they're in place for smartphones, this is only for Broadband2Go hotspots.

Basically, Sprint is doing away with unlimited home internet on their network. It makes sense. Sprint isn't a fixed ISP, so it makes sense not to let multiple MVNOs bog down their network for the millions of Sprint subscribers who want to use the network for what it is built for.

    • One more thing.. I just took a photo of a random glass on my counter in low light with both phones with no modifications to the stock camera settings.  The difference is night and day.  The photo taken with the Note looks crisp. Details are sharp. The dim scene is brightened beautifully.  Even the curtains in the background remain sharp and clear even when zoomed in.  The Pixel 7 Pro attempt at the same photo is laughable.  Blurrycam UFO type horrendous.  Did I get a faulty device?  This thing is horrific.  Something seems waaaay off.  
    • I received my P7 Pro 2 days ago and - coming from my Note 10 plus - I absolutely hate it!  I didn't expect to hate it so much but even the screen looks grossly inferior to my Note 10+ even though I know that makes no sense, at least on paper.  But I'm holding them side by side right now and the Pixel 7 Pro display looks grainy and borderline blurry compared to my several year old Note 10+.  What's going on here??  I toggled on full resolution thinking that would change things but....no.  the screen just looks awful.  Also...is there a way to mirror the Pixel 7 Pro to your smart tv without WiFi?  I've always done this with my Samsung phone. I thought allcast would be able to help out with that but it seems to not even function with this phone.  I'm about to smash this damn thing against the wall but I can't because I need it in one piece so I can return it ASAP to Best Buy.  I've honestly never been so wildly disappointed in a device.  Definitely going to switch it for the S22 Ultra. I don't understand the hype with this device.  Other than instant Android updates (which may not be the best idea after all) ...I can no longer see the allure.  
    • Any word on how SCP works with lineageos 19 on a oneplus nord n200 5g? Alternatively, how does the modem option work with rooted Android 11 on the same device? Maybe it has been depreciated in the past given the APIs. But since those are failing with NSA was planning to revisit the rooted modem options.
    • It doesn't include T-Mobile because AT&T objected to the T-Mobile applications.  The fact that anything at all was filed will add time. - Trip
