Exactly What I Was Promised

I got exactly what I was told! No over promising or anything. I explained what I need the internet for and got the plan that was perfect for me. Just when I thought there wasn't internet in rural areas!

Great

Worst Experience Ever

moved to the middle of nowhere and was happy to have found an I internet provider but within 3 days I had reached there data limit. It was either continue to move at a turtle speed or pay to speed it back up smh. Next time I will call providers before moving.
