FWIW, we're sticking with Verizon with their new announcement. We're merging a couple family plans together. 10 lines $300 unlimited data, unlimited calling, throttling on a line only after 22GB. $30 a line is not bad at all.

Verizon throttled 'unlimited' data of Calif. fire department during Mendocino wildfire


Bowden said in the declaration, first reported by "Ars Technica", that the Santa Clara County Fire Department had an unlimited data plan with Verizon but internet service slowed to 1/200th normal speed after the SCCFD reached 25 gigabytes of data usage.

Verizon refused to lift the restrictions on data speeds until the fire department upgraded to a more expensive service plan, Bowden said

"Lethargy bordering on sloth remains the cornerstone of our investment style."

Not a good look. There were better ways for Verizon to handle that

I purchased a full position today. I like the dividend yield and the prospects with 5G and Verizonís position.
