Funded by Verizon and you also only get 480p video.  They also need some design help on that website! 

For somebody like me that likes to stream music, it can be great. Bu then I cache up to 12 hours using WiFi so the desire to stream is quenched by caching.

At $40/month, it seems like a steal to use on VZW's network. The 5 Mbps cap is good for pretty much anything I ever do on my phone. The only thing it lacks is any type of options for folks that travel internationally.

Or any kind of discounts for family plans.

Visible seems like an MVNO targeted at Millenials and older Gen-Z folks. While a lot of us are on family plans with our parents, there is also a lot of us on single line plans. This is basically the cheapest single line of unlimited on Verizon that you can get.

Love how they advertise 480p as crisp lol what a blurry mess.

"Blurry mess" is hugely exaggerated. 480p is completely adequate on my iPhone 7 - most people will probably never know the difference. I just set Youtube to 480p and it looks crisp, I can barely tell the difference between 1080p and 480p.

Yikes. I can tell tell the difference between 1080p and 720p on my phone so there is no way I believe you can't tell the difference between 1080p and 480p. For what it's worth the iPhone 7 has a 1,334 x 750 display so you can't see better resolution than 720p on that screen.

Well you might be able to tell. YouTube uses different bitrates for the different resolutions. For example, if you force a video to load in 4k on a 1080p screen, it will look better than a video at 1080p from YouTube. When I upload videos to YouTube, I'll actually reencode a 1080p video as 4k for the upload, because YouTube won't degrade the quality as much as if it was 1080p (I've done side by side comparisons).

 

So in this case, a downsampled 1080p video will look better than one that's natively at 720p.

On my Galaxy phone which is the S9 Plus. But the quality at 480p compared to 1080p is like jumping back to the 1990s and early 2000s.

I don't mind seeing a Verizon version of Cricket/MetroPCS/Boost.  An option for tethering would also be nice.

I highly doubt Verizon would ever employ tethering for a mnvo

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
