  1. According to all the information from 'Visible Wireless', they are an 'APP', not a cell carrier. The app runs on the cell phone and that allows the completely unlimited data even when tethered or used as a hotspot from the cell phone only. That said, we have a WiFi booster/router that we connect to the Visible Wireless cell phone and then connect all our other devices to that router on our private network for 24/7/365 full time internet throughout our RV.
  2. Just a quick update, yes Visible Wireless has changed its pricing effective 08/18/2022. Old pricing was $40.00 monthly for the all-inclusive plan, then for each extra person in a Party Pay group the cost would go down by $5.00 to a price of $25.00 total for the month (4 people in a group). Anyone already in a Party Pay group is grandfathered into that plan, and at that cost of $25.00 total. The new pricing is $30.00, and if you want a few extras $45.00 in the all-inclusive plan. All of these prices are "OUT-THE-DOOR" pricing and includes all taxes and fees, unlike almost all other cellular plans out there today that tell you the price, then add the taxes and fees.
  3. Yes, we have been using Visible Wireless for 3+ years now without many problems at all. We may be grandfathered in and not available now, but we have a 'Party Pay' plan which we pay $25.00 per month for unlimited data, even using a 'hotspot'. While Visible is own by and uses the Verizon network, they are not the same company, Visible is mainly an "online only" situation. Visible is more of an 'APP' rather than a cellular company, which is why they offer no 'router/hotpsot' device and only allows one device at a time to be connected to a cell phone for data. We purchased just 2 extra cell phones; one stays in our RV the other stays with my mother-in-law (93 y.o.) to give her 24/7 internet for only $25.00 too. We stream all our TV, media and have 24/7 internet, using around 400GB-450GB of data per month. While the speed is okay for SD/HD streaming media, heavy streaming or gaming is really not an option at this speed. Here is our setup that gives us a private personal WiFi network in our RV that we use for everything. One cell phone with the 'Hotspot' activated, WiFi travel router/booster connected to the cell phone (only one device), TVs, laptop, computer, tablets, security system (etc.) connected to the router, a Weboost Drive X RV cell signal booster We also have 2 AT&T cell phones for personal usage, for those infrequent times that Verizon does not have a good signal where we are staying. This setup gives us internet even when traveling for only $25.00 total a month. I hope this helps, would be glad to answer any other questions you might have, although I am not an expert or employee of Visible, just a fellow RVer. Best of luck
  4. I do not have Starlink however I have added both a Wingard 4G/Wi-Fi unit and a Weboost with antenna mounted on the roof and never drilled holes in it. Most RVs have a refrigerator vent on the roof. When the cover is removed a rather large straight down hole can be seen. This is where we routed the cables and drilled holes near the bottom into the cabinets, thus avoiding any more holes in the roof. That said, there are roof cable entry plates at many RV supply stores and some home improvement store for around $5.00-$9.00
  5. I small correction, AT&T is NOT 'shutting down' the TOGO data, they are simply not going to offer the unlimited plan for $360.00 per year.
  6. Just FYI from a TOGO user. The unit works great with Verizon as well as AT&T. They are NOT 'shutting down', they simply are not going to offer the unlimited plan for $360.00 per year.
  7. I concur, went with the TOGO in August 2019, no real problems, very happy with the unit. Two points I'd like to make however. One: I have been in contact with TOGO and the unit is not 'Locked' to any one network provider. There is a sim card in the unit that can be changed to Verizon if wanted, but the unit itself comes with the AT&T sim card in it by default. Two: Just like the ConnecT 2.0, it has 3 signal amplifiers, and 5 antennas, 3 for WiFi and 2 for 4G (cell) so it also brings in the lower powered signals from WiFi and cell. In fact I have used it several times to park near Walmart, McDonalds etc.. and connect to their WiFi when my laptop computer couldn't find a strong enough signal. The 'Unlimited' plan from AT&T may be going away but if purchased before the 15th prepaid for a year (?!) I can't see them simply cutting you off, more like grandfather you in until your year is up with no renewal allowed. Well that would be a full year at $30.00 per month which is much cheaper than anywhere else.
  8. ditto what wolfe10 stated. My daughter worked for awhile in a "Fulfillment Center" which is just an order filling distribution center for various companies. She packaged items for 6 different companies and they did close down the week between Christmas and New Years, did not go back until usually the 4-5th of January. She said she now knows why when she orders things sometimes NO ONE at the company knows anything about the order, simply reason, they have nothing to do with the distribution.
  9. 14Fleetwood, You can pickup the Togo Roadlink from Winegard, Walmart.com, or https://rv.runswithtogo.com/product/togo-roadlink-c2/ Yes 5G is right around the corner which is supposed to be a great increase in everything, including cost. The internet is actually pretty speedy, have no problems streaming media or video calls with family. Not throttled and is $360.00 per year for unlimited. Verizon does have better coverage out in the western US, however with 3 high gain cellular and 2 high gain WiFi antennae, I have not seen much of a problem most anywhere. I been in several parks that have WiFi just not where most campers are, yet I have connected to their WiFi with no problems wile those around my rig were being dropped off because of low connect strength. Honestly speaking, 5G is not something I think is a must on my RV, even though I am full timer-nomad (no home base). Another thing to think about is the cell towers. For years RVers have been told that Verizon was the way to go, so they did, when you get into a park that is covered by 1 cell tower and 70% of the people in there are using it, network traffic is going to slow down for everyone.
  10. AndyShane Yes, I completely agree with your next-door neighbor. The Togo Roadlink works great. It not only allows for pretty fast internet over cellular but it also has 2 high gain antennae that pull in WiFi if it's available too. Have had no problems with it, myself, and the fact that it is simply 1 small 12V wire to power it installation is a breeze. To make it even easier, I used the refrigerator vent to run the power wire so no hole drilled into roof. Took all of 25 minutes and most of that was deciding where I wanted it and cleaning the roof to install it.

  11. I opted for the 'Togo Roadlink' with AT&T. Unlimited data for $360.00 a year. Back by Thor Motorcoach used to be available only to Airstream owners. It not only had unlimtied cellular data but you can also pull in WiFi from the surrounding locations, giving you stronger signal and better internet speed. Just fyi, the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 4G2 is the same as the Togo Roadlink, but onlly the Togo has the agreement for unlimtied@ $360.00 from AT&T. https://rv.runswithtogo.com/product/togo-roadlink-c2/ Or you can go to Winegard website for information.
  12. All I can say is please look into 'Togo Roadlink C2, 4G LTE Router and WiFi Extender with AT&T Unlimited Cellular Data $360.00 per year. I bought it and could not be happier.
  13. No the Togo Roadlink C2 service $360.00 yearly is not throttled and it works great, the unit is made by Winegard and is exactly the same as the ConnecT 2.0 4G LTE.
