One of their plans uses Sprint. Very poor coverage.

I got the Verizon deal through them. Cost $50/mo including all taxes/fees with a 2 yr contract, plus you have to have a 2yr membership with FMCA to get the deal. I already had the 2 yr membership so upfront fees for me was zero. The mifi device is also free. 25gb/mo, that’s it, it doesn’t work after that until the billing cycle starts over. For us it was worth it, we work from the RV and while I have truly unlimited with AT&T, I needed a backup in case AT&T coverage was sparse which happens more frequently than I’d like. The Sprint deal is better, as it has no GB/mo restrictions, but Sprint coverage is not good out west. That may change once the sprint/T-Mobile merger is complete.

I have the sprint plan through them.

Iíve heard coverage in the west is not as good but we are in Ohio and have used in Kentucky, Tennessee, etc with no issues.

The unlimited is nice and streams Netflix or allows me to work from the coach in my laptop with no problem.

I have even used in the S&B to work when cable internet went out.

We got rid of our Verizon MiFi device since Verizon's plan would slow the speed when we got to a certain data use level. We got the Sprint device thru FMCA and have been using it for a year with no issues whatsoever. We use it in Virginia and South Carolina. Speed is good and the charge is always $49.95 per month regardless of usage.

Depends on where you travel. VZ works pretty much everywhere while Sprint is mostly on the east side
