Today, and the last month or two: switched our cell provider to attempt to get better coverage at the house. Went from Sprint to T-Mobile so the switch was inevitable anyway.
Turns out we get good 5G here so we've been using our phones as internet hotspots when doing more than just email stuff. That's a big-ish deal since the best available landline connection at this place is a measly 768 kbps. It's a rock-solid 768 kbps, but that's still super-slow considering I can look out the window of the house and see homes less than a mile away with 100Mb or so.
So when we were in the T-Mobile store maybe 8 weeks back, they said they weren't sure we'd get 5G here (we do) but that they would be rolling out a home internet service soon. Checked in a few weeks ago and it is now available in our area. Ordered it up, hooked it up, and now get anywhere from 30-80 Mbps. Seems solid, too - haven't had any dead time yet. The wifi range is also better with the new unit, covering about 90% of my shop building in addition to the house.
It's nice to get a good connection again. Can download games any time instead of scheduling them to run overnight. Emails with large attachments no longer take 2-3 minutes to download. And the price is less than half what we were paying before.
Pretty pleased with their 5G so far. With a traveling job, it has been providing good coverage even when visiting customers out in the countryside or in small towns. The new phone also handles hot-spotting better than the old one. It's not the fastest of all the 5G providers but the coverage is really good and the speed is more than enough for the way we use the internet.
I'm not used to being 100% happy when making changes like this, but so far I am 100% happy with it.
