For the past two years we have subscribed to an internet provider called Millenicom. They buy service from Verizon in bulk and then sell it in smaller chunks to their own subscribers. It has worked very well for us and we've been pleased with the service. That all came to an end today when it was announced Verizon took over Millenicom customers and will be contacting us.
Well, I haven't heard anything from Verizon and don't know how long I will have service, but in any case we will go with someone to provide us internet while we are on the road. Most likely the provider will be Verizon, but that isn't certain at this time.
It is also about time we looked into a smartphone and a data plan with it. Our main phone is an ATT cell phone and we use that for most of our service. We also have a Verizon phone with limited minutes and maybe it is time to move forward. We don't like to text, no instagram stuff, etc so some of the benefits of a smartphone don't really interest us. Basically we use the phone as a phone, not as a camera, GPS, weather station and such.
So, if I don't update the blog for a while most likely it will be because we are switching providers, upgrading phones, tweeting and all those good things. It will be hard to switch over from the phone below to the new fangle ones. What do you think?
Give us a call sometime. It's three longs, two shorts and one long. For those under 60 and need an explanation, let me know.
